Flavor is absolutely brilliant, first time you cast it it's a devil's prank (Devil's play?) which is why it's red. Second time its villagers defenses, hence the white flashback.

This is direct card advantage, and the flavor rocks. 4/5.

At first, I thought its meh... Then I saw that it has Flashback. Not too bad.

This actually looks quite good! R/U/W Desperate Ravings control anyone?

I love the flavour text - it's a reference to Devil's Play, in case you didn't catch it.

The card itself will be very useful in Limited as repeatable removal.

Good in limited, but I'd be surprised to see it in a competitive constructed deck.

You can research this upgrade for your Demolishers.

As a relatively new player, I went 2-1 in a casual draft with my playgroup today. People say that R/W is bad in DKA/Innistrad, but splashing White was amazing for Burning Oil. There was so much value in it, since it was so cheap, and when it worked, it just felt good. Burning Oil was, for me, basically a cheaper Rebuke with flashback, but better since it would affect blockers too.

Overall, 3/5 AMAZING in Limited. Poor everywhere else though.

Seriously? If there is a R/W deck out there, this will be a four-of. Almost Incinerate with flashback, wow.

Flashback too expensive, or lose the targeting restriction. Far too many better options out there in both colors. I can understand wanting to tone back removal, but Innistrad already had great removal in it. Wait till next block to cram that genie back in Wizards.
