Fireball was always my favorite of the X red burn spells, because of its ability to hit multiple targets (it's not often that red gets card advantage). But this is Fireball on steroids. Or possibly super-soldier serum. It's so fun to be able to say "Let's see... I need five mana to kill that one creature that's really annoying me, leaving me three mana... I guess I'll kill those other two creatures, too, and also blast my opponent's face".

Vocabulary lesson, by the way: Comet Storm is far, far better than Blaze: You'd be a fool to run Blaze in any deck, but you'd also be a fool to not run Comet Storm in any red deck if you had it. Despite this, however, Comet Storm is not strictly better than Blaze, since Blaze is a little bit cheaper for a single target. The "strictly" in "strictly better" doesn't just mean "a whole lot better".

Everything burns. So burn everything.

I put this in my top 3 EDH burn spells with Banefire and Red Sun's Zenith.

And for 45 mana you too can kill everyone else at the table.

3/1/2010 Each target you choose must be different.

There's a ruling list for a reason. ;)

But even so, I think the use of the word "another" should have made it clear anyway.

Also: Strictly better than Volcanic Geyser.

Rydia: "Meteo" *stuff dies*

Lots of fun.

Like a fireball, but with a bit more versatility. I like it.

I wish people would stop arguing about strictly better, with the amount of cards in magic, it's pretty much impossible for a card to be better in every situation. I mean, you could say this is strictly better than Volcanic Geyser but then your opponent has a Redirect. But wait! You have a Spellskite so it's all good.

Tl;dr when someone says strictly better, just take it to mean pretty much better in every situation except for really niche ones.
