people talking about using this with Distortion Strike but you really dont need to, this splits your deck red blue.
with pure red, here is the perfect circumstances (entirely possible)

turn 1, mountain

turn 2, mountain, kiln fiend

turn 3, lightning bolt a defender, lightning bolt another defender, assault strobe on kiln fiend.

attack for 20 damage.

having it be a sorcery hurts it a bit, but still, you definitely can't underestimate the power of double strike for R. i definitely look forward to using this--probably not in RDW, but in something.

As the flavor text suggests: use this to smash face.

Having this as an Instant speed would probably make it better than Giant growth. Especially with Poison in the set. Still a solid, solid card. Well designed and easily playable. Obviously not as good as the instant speed Double Cleave but solid none-the-less

This would cast 2 to 3 times more if it were an instant.

I'm not normally one to post something like this but eh.

Turn 1: Mountain, Vector Asp

Turn 2: Overgrown Tomb, activate Asp's Infect, This, Invigorate

Good game. :p

This + Kiln Fiend + Distortion Strike. 16 damage on turn 3. Play any burn spell beforehand and it's GG.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
