This, or Banefire?

Best art ever.

You need to read the card.
It says if a CREATURE would be put into the graveyard, exile instead.
The only Planeswalker that can currently be exiled with this is Gideon when he's a creature.

@Delnad: Planeswalkers aren't creatures. You were correct in being doubtful.

Demonfire is better with aggressive decks, since they tend to run on low mana and low hand. Banefire is better for a tempo or control deck, slower but tends to get enough mana for a 5+ damage.

With that said, I think both are good in their own field. One clear advantage Demonfire has is that not only it exiles creatures it doesn't have to be 5+ to achieve its highest effect. However, such power comes at a requirement of empty hand, which isn't always the best thing (or the easiest) for non-aggressive decks.

I get both. Keep in mind Banefire cost about 4x of Demonfire, and its only benefit is it's easier to be anti-counter. However Demonfire's exile creature is very good against any kind of graveyard resurrection deck, such as Grave Pact, or Oversold Cemetery, which is a good counter against burn decks.

Also correction for @ Delnad, you can't cast this on Gideon, because he's never a creature during your turn.

Definitely Banefire, IMO.

I wonder if the exiling ability would work on a planeswalker as well...?

I doubt it, but then again...

This is a nice finisher in burn, where control decks might try to stabilize at low life totals, this can just knock the rest off. Although I'd love to see a spell like this that had shroud or hexproof so redirect doesn't work on it...

Yay! Another strictly better versions of Blaze.
