Improved in ROE as Flame Slash. Increased damage and no stupid color restriction.

because white doesn't normally get burns, so for it to get a "decent" burn (1 mana for 3 damage is pretty good, red mages are spoiled because of lightning bolt) makes sunlance a decent card that can catch people off guard.

Of course when it's white it gets a better rating; there are much better burn spells in red than this, there aren't in white.

Oh Gerrard, you remind me of Han Solo.

One of the worst red burn spells in the game. Sorcery, and it cannot target players, AND it has to be a nonred creature, AND it is uncommon!!! I guess this might have been decent in limited/block constructed.

"Sweet as, another burn spell, could be good!"

(Deals 3 damage...) "sweet!"

(To target nonred creature) "Oh..target creature or player would be better."

(Sorcery) "oh... assumed it was instant speed."

(Uncommon.) That makes sense wouldn't want too many of these overpowered cards appearing in limited.

But in all seriousness, wtf? Lightning Bolt is strictly better in almost every way...
Power creep at its best...

I love how they turn this card white and it gets a better rating. Sunlance

Right, because white really needed a 1cmc (creature only) burn spell. It's not like white has a bunch of 1cmc removal. Changing a cards color only makes it better if the color you're changing it to lacks cards that can fulfill a similar role. Making Sea Eagle Green still wouldn't make it a good card.

I dig the flavor text on this one.
