hmm, can't be countered or prevented but redirection should still work.

Just Deflection the thing.

@Tezz: Yeah, they were called Titan Engines. Urza made nine of them and him and 8 of the most bad arse Planeswalkers ever (Including a young Laurence Fishburne) went into Phyrexia and started wrecking their face up.

A great card back in the day, but a little outdated now. Banefire will generally get the same effect you're looking for if you need a big Bomb to throw at something. (and you can save mana if you only need to do 5-9 damage instead of 10.) Urza's Rage does win out at the lower end of things since the Uncounterable ability is baseline.

However, for me, Banefire doesn't have the nostalgia from my first days playing magic.

yeah akromar, also keep in mind this card is an instant... so it works perfectly with banefire.
