Well, it's basically a sorcery spell that deals 4 damage to an opponent, with the drawback of giving your opponent the option of this guy becoming a creature instead, if the opponent can deal with it easily. On theo ther hand, you can slap it on a soul foundry. And recursion is easier for creatures than for instants and sorceries. Unearth comes to mind.

This little guy just got a huge shot in the arm from Varolz, the Scar-Striped being printed. Burn for four, then use his corpse to pump something up by four... for two red?!

The only Christians this card, or any piece of cardboard, offends are people who really need to reexamine their beliefs. I'm Christian and have many Christian friends who play, including one pastor who absolutely loves Innistrad, and we all understand that cardboard can't hurt us and the devil does not work for a game company. It's alright everyone, just enjoy the game :)

Here's an assessment from someone who's only recently begun playing Red:
While *yes*, the fact that your opponent gets to choose
whether this is a 4/3 creature or a 4 point Lava Axe *does* weaken it,
it's also a fact that both outcomes are incredibly cheap at a single Red Mana.

So yes- your opponent gets the choice, but you're the one who gets the bargain.

I have a feeling this guy, Reforge the Soul, and Thunderous Wrath are going to revive Red in a major way.

Seriously, why are people mucking around with Fling? Don't worry about the timing, just use Pandemonium.

To those wondering why this card isn't banned, or why it isn't in every deck ever, etc.

Choice cards are always weaker because your opponent can chose whatever is most convenient for them. Although it may seem that this card gives you a turn 1 4/3, in reality your opponent will usually just take 4 damage, and the flipside in the lategame.
Now, I'm not saying that this is a weak card, just that it is balanced and fair.

The choice here is brutal, personally I'd rather have the devil resolved and kill it somehow. I don't want to take 4 damage so early that burn spell could grind me down that much earlier, and creature-kill has always been a staple for decks these days. It is within bolt range and both black and white cards can kill it. Green may have to fight it with its own big creatures.

this is a bit too much like browbeat for me to be completely comfortable with it, but it's still pretty dandy
