Shock was 'Meh', Lightning Bolt was insane, this Incinerate got it just right.

Well, that's because burn will never get old.

This card is still seeing play in competitive decks 14 years after its initial release.

I think this is just as handy as Lightning Bolt due to the regen-bane. I don't think Lightning Bolt is insane at all, perfectly normal and should have never rotated out of Core in my opinion. It's a staple. The only reason to use Shock is if your Format requires it, or in addition to Bolt. Bolt is one of the original one-mana for 3-of-something effect cards:
Lightning Bolt
Dark Ritual
Healing Salve
Giant Growth
Ancestral Recall

True Ancestral Recall is way more powerful than the other cards, but in the beginning WotC didn't know that.

Incinerate just improves on a good staple, at the cost of 1 colorless. Worth it.

This should be the flavor text on every burn spell

This is the real Baconator.

This is good because of the art and because it kills those pesky regenerating creatures. However, to kill indestructible creatures, use disintegrate.
