small lightning

I love opening with this turn one before my opponent has even had a chance to drop a land.

It also combos well with the teetering peaks that come in the deck for a nice 5 swing turn 2.

And Hellspark isn't really better or worse, just different. He costs double as much to do the same damage, both times. Flexibility but loss of mana efficiency. Personally, I run both since I find they serve different purposes (but compliment each other well).

Good with Assault Strobe, not to mention Fling.

Lightning Bolt, I found a hot date for you.

An O-Naginata on the field literally turns this into Ball Lightning.

This should have stayed a common, but this guy is nice, like a cheaper, one-shot Hellspark Elemental. Three damage for one is always nice.

One of my favorites. Glad to see it back but wish it had new art..

Nice. But Hellspark Elemental is slighlty better because of it's unearth.

Maybe one of the best uses is in a deck with Haakoon, Stromgald Scourge and Ashes of the Fallen.

@Bursama: Hellspark Elemental costs 1R. This costs R. I'd rather run this in most cases.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
