You get a Flame Slash. You get a Flame Slash. You ALL get Flame Slashes.

Best thing about the Overload mechanic? It gets around creatures with hexproof or shroud.

It works great at the start and mid game but late game overload can be devastating.
4/5

The poor man's Bonfire of the Damned. Sure, it doesn't hit players, but it's still one-sided board wipe. It's wonderful in EDH, too. At worst, it's a slightly worse Flame Slash. Still not bad.

So... For the upcoming Theros standard I think this is possibly the best removal my Gruul deck's gonna get.

It answers almost everything, especially for an aggressive deck. In this block, a list of problems for that deck it doesn't answer is actually pretty short. I mean, yes, there's plenty of things at 6 CMC or higher with 5 or more toughness (things above 5 CMC usually exceed 4 toughness anyway). But they're usually a problem aggro decks have to go round or faster than, not through. So... A list of things this doesn't beat at 5 CMC or lower are:

Alms Beast
Armory Guard
Azor's Elocutors
Bazaar Krovod
Catacomb Slug
Deadbridge Goliath
Descecration Demon
Flux Charger (With a little izzet ingenuity to Quicken it, it can.)
Hover Barrier
Jelen Sphinx
... (see all)

This may be my favorite card in the set. It's very strong and versatile. Sweet art as well. I'm really hoping I can pull a few of these!

This is a lot more stable than Bonfire and easier to take advantage of copy effects from Chandra, the Firebrand and doesn't whiff when being played for free.
