I would love a reprint of this :)

Obviously not the only madness card you want in your deck if you are running the combo burning inquiry + megrim + underworld dreams, but this one works really well with it for the low madness cost to use it early on or late game.

If you discard it, great! it not, you can hold it and wait for another discard, or use it straight up.

I used it with sonic seizure (Obviosly making sure they were the only cards in my hand, don't get on me about random) for a nice 6 damage for 2 red.

Yeah, I agree. You can't say strictly here as you could read this card as:

Fiery Temper Red
Deal 3 damage to target creature or player.
The next time you would discard a card this turn, prevent it.

But outside madness decks, a bolt would be better as it would be more easily used.

I've heard people playing Faithless Looting in Modern RDW and never heard of anyone thinking of playing this.

Not that it is the best card (it is situational), but cards like Rift Bolt and Lava Spike were $4/ea because they were the closest thing to Lightning Bolt.

Well, I don't care, I'm playing it in my deck along side my Browbeat's. You think I'm more dangerous with those three cards? Hahaha...
