Once Gisela, Blade of Goldnight comes out, she'll double the damage this does to your enemies and negate the damage it does to your allies. Win-win!

This is pretty much the cornerstone of mono-red EDH.

Pyrohemia would seem to translate roughly as "fire blood". Ouch.

Awesome in the regular card frame. If only they had given us Damnation too...

This + Stuffy Doll + Urza's Armor = EVIL

This card is awesome, and it looks so much better with a traditional border. The one thing I have to question is how useful it can be in a three-color deck with a dodgy manabase.

This + Tamanoa + Manabarbs. Very upsetting board state for your opponents. I use Darksteel Myr usually to keep mine on the board.

@ leomistico

"Tom" is a term that originated in the Time Spiral block that usually refers to cards that finally correct a perceived misplacement of an effect/ability that really "belongs" in one color (or that has experienced some other sort of color shift that brings the pie closer to what it "should" look like). The name "Tom" comes from Prodigal Pyromancer, who was given this nickname as a riff on "Tim," the nickname of Prodigal Sorcerer (which I think he got from Monty Python? I was never really clear on that). Before the introduction of "Tom" the unconditional, vanilla "ping" was most commonly printed on blue creatures, despite it feeling much more at home in red's slice of the pie.

This card might be considered a "Tom" in that sense because universal damage is much more commonplace in red than in black. However, I agree with 2097 that it has some problems, mostly stemming from the "at least one creature has to be out" disease angle. Tha... (see all)

@Kazuhiro: Welcome to balanced card building. Luckily my deck has Eldrazi Monument. Or, if you really need to use Pyrohemia, then you can afford to lose your commander as well - no different than if you cast Wrath of God.
