Did anyone notice that this artwork is simply AWESOME???

Did anyone notice that the ablaze tree up in the middle joins the crevice in the upper card frame???

I miss some of these old artworks...

This is just 1/3 of Jaya Ballard, Task Mage

A nice sweeper for red, not many creatures can survive this, although Master_of_Evocation has it right when he says use Earthquake, although this also hits flyers, which is useful in red...

Its cool in EDH. I love the flavor too. Makes me think about a torrent of flames barreling over a bunch of helpless dogs and soldiers. So brutal.

The perfect spell for when everything has to die. As an instant, has improved value in multiplayer, where it can be cast in response to an attack that would deal you 6 anyway.

Viable in Commander, where big spells that blow up everything see plenty of play.

Other than that, this card is way too expensive since Earthquake will usually do a similar job and it can be scaled.

Deserves some mention as an Instant, perhaps the most expensive one in the game with a fixed casting cost.

A little too expensive. If your opponent has creatures that make it worth casting this its probably too late. Although it's not an instant, just use earthquake.

Play this the turn after your titan and cry.

It's hard to have that six life to spare if you're playing control. And if you're the aggro, don't play something that costs seven.

I used this as a finisher in a creatureless repercussion burn deck. With just 3 creatures on your opponent's side, that's game.

Don't get me wrong, the deck is terrible unless you get a perfect draw. But man, was it fun to play!

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
