I hate that when I searched for burn spells and ordered them by player rating, I almost didn't notice this card. Stop rating it badly. It's not bad. It's just not good in EDH.

Clash does make sense in EDH. It has a subtle draw-smoothing effect, and it gets better in multiplayer. Since you clash with "an opponent", not "that creature's controller", you can give away a minor boon to someone whose help you need. You can even choose the opponent with the lowest average mana cost, or one who for whatever reason is known to have a land coming.

Cosign Gelzo. This is a good card. 4/5 in normal play. 2/5 in Commander. What WERE they thinking???

This is not a bad card, has the potential to double bolt while being a 3 toughness sniper.

Guys, I'm not sure, but I'm getting the feeling that Greg doesn't appreciate every card in the commander set.

Run in a clash deck where you can set up your draws. You can get your Searing Blaze without landfall. Or, if it comes down to it, you can just burn a creature for 3. That's not all that terrible, just not the best possible outcome.

I think it's weird that this is rated more than 2 stars lower than the original print. People must not have liked seeing this in the deck, and I can't say I disagree with the sentiment. Direct damage this weak really sucks in EDH.


I thought standard procedure for rating cards was to attempt to rate how good they are in general and not just for a particular format. How misleading is it going to be to a new player to see this rating and be led to conclude that it's a bad card? I think this can be a pretty decent card for casual or modern burn. It isn't fantastic, but it deserves a four or at least a three in my book.

I don't really understand why they put cards like this in the decks.. They could've reprinted something that actually deserved it.

What deck is it in? is the clash at all important?
