Fireblast can do it for 2 sacrificed mountains.
Guerrilla Tactics can do it for free, but only if opp forces you to discard it.
Reckless Abandon can do it for a sacrificed creature and R.
But this is the cheapest of them all to surely hit the opponent for 4 without any hard conditions... just with losing a chunk of your own life total. Straight burn can afford this.

Great for burn.

Awesome for multiplayer chaos-style. Use it with a Sun Droplet in play for extra fun.

Hive Mind or twin-cast for some serious fun.

um, Tamanoa?

Any way you slice it, it's paying 4 life for 1 more damage. That tradeoff is good in idealized situations, but really horrible in MANY other situations. I'm just not a fan, but I'm not 100% against its use.

Awesome Card Good For An All Burn Red Creaturless Deck Along With Chandra Ablaze Or Pyromancers Ascension Even A Charbelcher Deck

How is this rated higher than Char? They're both great cards and I would run both.

I was just playing against Chandra on the Xbox 360 game and she literally committed suicide by playing 2 of these back to back. Oh yeah, I had Baneslayer Angel out :P

This would be sweet as an end game option when you're up. Scale accordingly with Fork or Reverberate.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
