I love this card in Zedruu the Greathearted EDH.

You: "Guess what, mono-blue player, your Psionic Blasts now do SIX DAMAGE!"

Blue Player: "Huh? (reads card) Fffffffffffff-------"

@ fibonacci112358 - "Now unplayable thanks to Guttersnipe."

I have to disagree with you there. Guttersnipe doesn't turn each ping from Flames of the Firebrand, Electrolyze, or Arc Lightning into a Lightning Bolt ;)

Couple this with Anthem of Rakdos. Your one spell a turn is looking pretty scary, even if it's Flame Jab.

Speaking of pyromancers... this with Chandra Ablaze makes a TON of damage in any decent red instant/sorcery deck

When this card was printed I build a deck with this and Oath of Scholars, and it worked quite well (casual only). You draw 4 cards a turn and you can burn your opponent like there weren't a tomorrow... Just remember to play the oath first!
Like Osco said, add Ensnaring Bridge and you don't even need to worry about combat damage...
Great card, IMHO...

Awesome with suspended burn such as Rift Bolt, but also pairs well with burn spells with Madness. Violent Eruption + this seems pretty sick ...

@Rioks: Shivan Meteor can't damage players - there's a reason it isn't completely broken, though you could damage a player if you have a Stuffy Doll on the battlefield.

Haha this made Grapeshot pretty badass

This is really good with Pyroclasm, Volcanic Fallout or even Spark-Spray type spells. Neat with Seering Touch (especially if you use enough Memory Crystals). Very good with Grapeshot.

try with flame jab and life from loam/a bunch of lands... recurrent lightnight bolt!

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
