What I love about this card is, in my mono-red M10 burn/aggro, I use my Gorgon Flail plenty of ways, and this works well with it. Sure, my Prodigal Pyromancers get one-shots with it, and when I throw something with Stone Giant, it makes it a more imminent threat, but if I throw the Flail on an Inferno Elemental, I now have a creature that will kill anything that blocks it or gets blocked by it, with an ability that beats out first strike and double strike for speed. Love the card.

So it can take out a Wall of Frost. Cool.

A little expensive, but still an interesting addition to a red deck

I'm a^ssuming that if Inferno Elemental is blocked by multiple creatures, he will deal 3 damage to each of them. Neat.

I'm not too convinced by this guy. When attacking and unblocked, it still deals only 4 damage. When blocked, it still dies to a 4/4 dude, and when blocking it also dies to a 4/4 dude.

What it needs is equipment. With wither or first strike, it can kill anything with 7 toughness or less in combat. And with trample it's ability makes more sense too. But nearly everything is good with equipment, so still:

While there are some creative uses for it, the expense does seem to limit it. 5 mana would not be ridiculous, would have to be a rare though.

Oh well, can't see much consistent use except perhaps sideboard for a burn deck for faster decks with meaty creatures? This plus lightning bolt = 10.

I like it, simply because double strike is rampant in my play group.

I'd say it's worth playing in limited but other than that, it really doesn't serve much of a purpose.

Infect would be an interesting addition. Wither as an inferior version of that, and first/double strike will make sure it will always survive for the next turn.

Entangler, and Inviolability just for kicks.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
