Makes for an interesting mana war between two red decks.

Heathen as it may sound, I'm not really a fan of Chain Lightning. I can see the advantages of having (more or less) 8 Bolts in your red deck, but if things get to that, I think I'd just run 4 Lava Spikes instead. At least they're not nearly as expensive to pick up as these things.

i admit i got this confused with a lightning bolt when i first played with the new deck..ha. love this new art though. also 5/5, wont be bounced back most of the time as sorceries should be played at the right time anyways.

Even if you don't plan to combo it with Stuffy Doll or Spitemare and Furnace of Rath or something, it still has advantages over Lightning Bolt. It's immune to Dispel, for one...

For purposes other than targeting yourself or your own creatures and powering shenanigans, this card seems strictly worse than Lightning Bolt.

It's at sorcery speed, and it can potentially give your opponent a critical advantage.

Don't get me wrong, lightning bolt is hard to compete with, but this seems like a poor substitute. They should really be more subtle about letting you sneak four more copies of lightning bolt into your decks.

Looks good in this new frame.

Sometimes I wonder if MasterofEtherium is genuinely as stupid as he looks, or if he's simply one of the greatest trolls in the entire Magic community...

For the longest time I was a real fool and then it finally hit me that this card actually is really good. The Stuffy Doll combo simply illustrates the fact you can target yourself and your own creatures. You can still run this and blast a 1/1 goblin token while running off a couple Seething Songs to nail your opponent for lots of damage. I'm sorry for ever having doubted this card. 5/5

MasterOfEtherium for President.

Jesus christ on a crutch MasterOfEtherium, you're usually just annoying, not going full retard

I would really hate to sit in on a magic game you're a member of, because if you're getting away with stuff like that, good god
