repeatable effects in limited are always good and this one gets blood for your thirsty guys. It could easily get in for 2 - 4 damage and chump block something big so still really good for a one drop. People played frostling and mogg fanatic and this guy is on par with him. You could always run him with grim lavamancer it's not a bad idea for red to run 8 one drops

Why do you say that Sorian? They're almost identical, but the edge probably slightly goes to Tormented Soul. Fireslinger can still deal damage even in the face of no combat step (Stonehorn Dignitary) - but that's a very minor advantage. Tormented Soul can be equipped and enchanted, meaning that instead of 1 damage a turn, you're doing 4 damage a turn if you put a Dark Favor or a Greatsword on him. Fireslinger's damage doesn't increase with his power.

Still, Fireslinger is a great limited card, and not a bad 1 drop overall.

It is annoying both flavorfully and mechanically. Therefore I love it! :D

Great with the Bloodthirst ability.

I have a couple of these cards in my deck and i was just wondering if its my turn and i play this card can i use its "tap" ability to deal 1 damage to target player right then? or does summoning sickness prevent tapping abilities as well? Just started playing recently so any advice is welcome, Thanks!

Good if you need a sure Bloodthirst trigger.

This seems good even without the new Bloodthirst cards. How often has a red deck run out of steam when its hand is empty and the opponent has some fatties in the way when he's only at a few points of life? Besides, he also works nicely with guys like War Elemental or Sigil of Sleep. I like him.

He is great and all, but he would be even better if he could also target creatures as well as players.

Meet your new friend, Tormented Soul.
Black-Red Bloodthirst, anyone?

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
