I love how is scares everyone but the thing you toast. If he survives, he gets to be all "I don't even give a ***."

Awesome card if you run a white red deck. Play your cards right and you can bring plans crashing to a halt. Wait until your opponent plays cards with "until end of turn" and then throw this baby down.

Ah, so good. Building a RedWhite control deck, and this is one of the main ingredients. 5/5

A beautiful card without a home. Alara Reborn gave birth to many great cards. . . But Lightning Helix just sees more use.

This plus the spoiled silence from M10 plus Ajani V. seems like crazy control for R/W. Against the right deck, this is nearly a free turn.

This card is surprisingly underplayed at the moment for how good it is. As in, it's a great card, and I have NEVER seen it played. Not only does it potentially kill a creature (say, a pesky Wild Nacatl) but it prevents all of your opponent's other creatures from beating you in the face (a problem considering the rising popularity of Naya decks). If the target does die, your opponent can't attack at all. You can also target your own creature on your opponent's turn to prevent all attacks.

I suspect this will see more play in sideboards as one of the only ways to stop the Annihilator 6 ability (not to mention the 15-power attack) of Emrakul, the Aeons Torn once Rise of the Eldrazi comes out.

Looks like a Master of Etherium in the art. Hopefully the troll one.

if blue had direct damage of any sort it would be auto include. r/w seems to be getting a lot of tempo tools. adjani and this can get you whole phases if not whole turns, and often times a phase can equate to a turn.

Intimidation Bolt + Stun Sniper = r/w control/burn deck...
