I've beaten a lot of people with this card at times when it seemed like I was gonna lose, i.e. both me and my opponent were at one life, I'm tapped out, no creatures, he has a wall of giant fat tramplers that would steamroll my creatures if I even had any. I grew to love this card after I realized how stupid it could be in the right situation and how low the alternate cost really is. Beautiful. Not going to wish for this card to come back, but it's damned good.

i've hard casted it once. once. and it was just because we were playing a game with a lot of life and we made it to turn 8 or 9, and i top decked it.

My friend laughed when I put this in my monored deck and said it was crap.
Turn 4, I played a Searing Blaze, getting my Quest for Pure Flame the last counter, and played two of this. 16 damage for free. Now he doesn't laugh anymore at all.
Epic Pwnage stories apart, this is a jewel. Perfect for getting those last 4 damage through. Not completely worthless if hardcasted, either.

The King with a capital 'K' of burn spells for mono-red decks. Enables the possibility of a turn 3 burn kill and nearly ensures a turn 4 kill. To me, this is as important to a red deck as force of will is to a blue deck

Best turn 4? Furnace of Rath, then 2 Fireblasts.

Charizard uses Fireblast.
It's super-effective!

There's something beautiful about facing an opponent who has counterspells in hand and thinks it's safe to play out their big finisher because you're tapped out, and then they receive two Fireblasts to the face the moment they try to cast their big spell.

And you don't even have to sacrifice the mountains if the situation calls for paying the mana cost. It's a very flexible card in that regard.

So odds are your going to keep two in your hand by the time a game gets close to finish. Best red finisher card besides the classic fireball
