I get why its so expensive (y'know, the whole deals damage to both the player and his or her creatures) but...Idk I feel like it could miss a lot of the time, by which I don't mean lands, I mean something with a wicked low CMC, and in such an instance it would barely hurt the player and his or her creatures, in the late game, would most likely be pretty unaffected. When it hits though, this card is pretty beastly. I think it should be an Instant, way more versatility what with attack stalling and all that jazz. At the end of the day, though, I'm far more comfortable with Lightning Bolt.

The last sentence of this card turns it from being on the level of Disaster Radius to being more on the level of Flame Wave.

Except for that whole bit about costing infinite mana.

Getting your card back if it's a land is great for this card, definitely takes away a little bit of the nervousness players get when playing the more random-red spells. The randomness makes it not a perfect spell, but that's red's flavor. Risk doing nothing to hope for some massive damage.

If you think of it in the sense that as long as you pull a 3 cc creature or more, it's worth the mana because it costs earthquake 4 mana to do three damage. And actually it can be better because it deals damage to your opponents flyers also. Pretty good card if you ask me.

Use jace to rig emurakul or someone like such to top of their deck and fall off your seat laughing.

This fills the full range, it could be horrendous or awesome or just decent

This is pretty nasty with Orcish Spy. It also works with Lantern of Insight, but personally I prefer the Spy since it lets you plan ahead a little more and your opponent won't get any benefits.

Great card, 4/5.

Excommunicate, maybe?
