shock is good, lightning bolt is better...

With the printing of Burst Lightning, this is no longer even second best in the one mana burn department.

Ahh, poor shock. They even took away your flavor text to show how they hate you.
Shame on you, wizards!

I'm sure there's people who still use this in mono- {R} burn.

This is definitely still playable - I don't think its useless because of Lightning Bolt. Two damage to anything at instant speed is still very useful. Yes, I'd rather replace this with Lightning Bolt whenever possible, but considering that Lightning Bolts are 2.50 apiece, I personally am not going to pay 10 dollars for a playset of them.

Despite being replaced by the returned Lightning Bolt, it's a shame to see this rotate out of extended. 4.5/5 for all the use I've got out of Shock.

I think this card is pretty okay. I once killed someone with shock..... Yup that's sad.

I don't agree that Magma Spray is better becouse it can only target creatures. it's awesome playing 2-3 of those for extreamly low mana when your opponent got 4-6 life :D

Thank you, gods of Magic, for bringing this joyous card back for M12. I'm so tired of hearing about creatures being good because they're "out of Bolt range." 3 toughness creatures, rejoice!

Ya know as much as most every burn spell ever is better than this, I consider this one the most annoying. Something always ticks me off when someone shocks a creature of mine. A bolt, not so much, but shock.. yeah.
