I like how you anytime you're bored you can just search Gatherer for 'color = Red; type = Instant; type = sorcery' and then spend a good hour looking at all the pretty fire :D

I really don't like the "without flying" part. It is to red like what "nonblack creature" is to black.

That aside, double Pyroclasm is solid.

Well, when it's good on turn 3 it is probably just as good as on turn 6. They will see it coming though but it's still card advantage.

At first, I completely dismissed this card. Higher CMC than Pyroclasm, lower damage than Slagstorm, and misses fliers. The Flashback usually won't make up for that. But I think it may have a bit of a niche for a couple of reasons. First, Slagstorm's {R}{R} can be difficult for a multi-colored deck to swing on turn 3, and having to sit on your sweeper because of color screw can easily lose a game. But the second, more important advantage, is that it misses fliers. Yes, you read that right; the fact that it doesn't kill fliers is a huge point in its favor, sometimes.

Why's that? If you're running sweepers, don't you want to be able to sweep everything? Well, sometimes, yes. But in tempo decks, which are usually built around cheap but punishing fliers, sweepers, and countermagic, you can effectively turn it into a one-sided board wipe. That can put the game in the bag easily, as opposed to strict draw-go control, wh... (see all)

It kills Invisible Stalker. 5/5

I'm with Lyoncet, although I never dismissed this card or any other board sweeper. This is just as good an anti-aggro card as Nevermore is an anti-combo card. Even better given the flexible mana cost.

I think I'm going to build a deck with lots of cheap flyers and a few copies of this. Build around it, and you have a cheap one-sided board sweeper, just like Whipflare is for a deck full of artifact creatures.

Flashback makes this card about even with Pyroclasm.

Hey, 'thebroodwarjc', nothing is as awesome as Pyroclasm, which costs less and kills more. Temblor's only claim to fame is the fact that it's uncommon, not rare.

Really wish it delt damage to flying creatures, I got two of these at the pre-release and barely used them at all =\

at the pre-release i had one of these, and always was happy to use it, as there are a lot of x/2's out there, and unless it is blue or part of white most don't have flying. this routinely killed the Elite Inquisitor my monsters couldn't touch, and i was repeatedly able to get +1 or+2 card value from this. All of that was without even flashing it back too. pyroclasm is a decent spell, and although this is slightly more expensive it is decent and what is in standard at the moment.
