Elemental Appeal + Assault Strobe = 7/1 double strike trample for RRRRR.

Turn 4: Koth of the Hammer
Turn 5: Koth's -2, Elemental Appeal with kicker, and Assault Strobe.

My dream combo.

Do people like Blistering Firecat? Yes. Do people like options? Yes. Good card.

Considering mana acceleration is a specialty of Zendikar, you very well may get to pay the kicker. which might be a little impractical, but its still a bit demoralizing to be facing a trampler with 14 power.

This card is easily 4/5. Yes, it's worse than Ball Lightning, but anything that's better than Ball Lightning would pretty much (almost certainly) be broken.

MANY cards are worse than Ball Lightning, that doesn't mean they are bad cards though. It just means they are only amazing instead of super-amazing.

Elemental Appeal should be in most TypeII {R} sligh decks.

lol @ people thinking this card sucks

It's a slightly more expensive (and slightly more power) ball lightning with a potential kicker. If ball lightning is worth a 4-5 (and it should), then this is at least a 4.

I actually like this better than Ball Lightning. :

This kicker seems entirely pointless. The card is plenty good on its own, fits into the curve of a mono R burn deck perfectly. For nine mana, I'd much rather make five copies of the strongest creature on board or something, not pump out a token that dies to, well, everything, and leave myself wide open for retaliation. A really weird design...

"I cast Elemental appeal and kick it. 14/1 trampler coming your way."
"I block it with Boros Recruit."
