This card is AMAZING! It's the Red (and original) Creeping Mold! It's Artifact removal that will never be dead against non-artifact decks!

EDIT: @crimson149: I'm not saying it's the original land destruction spell, because it wasn't. I'm saying it was the first (as far as I can tell) artifact removal spell that wouldn't be dead against non-artifact decks.

For mono red its great. The card is flexible, 3 to destroy a land is excellent in and of itself, and regen prevention on top is suhweet.

"Actually, sinkhole is the original."

Stone Rain and Ice Storm were also printed in Alpha. You can't say one came before the other.

Much worse art. No flavor text. :(

It's possible, nay, even likely that they would have had to pay RKF extra money to reprint his art in PDS:FaL, whereas the 7E art was paid for in a single sum and could be re-used indefinitely then.

Not strictly better than Demolish, since it is considerably less splashable.

Also, why would they put the lame-ass 7th ed. artwork in the Premium deck? Richard Kane Ferguson's art was phenomenal on everything, and this was one of his best.

Ahh much better art. Super useful now that artifacts are prevalent again.

Strictly better than Demolish, making it good enough for me. Red Rain of Tears that cans regeneration on manlands and can also bury artifacts. Very nice all around.

I believe the reason this art was changed in 7th edition was because the original RKF art shows a barbarian that takes up almost the whole picture, looking like a creature card. This art has a guy blowing stuff up, the explosion being the central point. It actually looks like a sorcery.
