This is to hymn to tourach what dash hopes is to counterspell, which is to say, not as good, but still usable, especially in its color.

A red twist on Hymn to Tourach. I like it because it can fit into a burn/aggro deck. It's funny watching your opponent realize it's a lose-lose situation for them.

Your opponent is almost never going to discard two cards, especially at random, so this is a 2 mana sorcery for 4 damage that can only hit players (unless of course they're at low life, but if that's the case you most likely want to draw a normal burn so you can just kill them). Which is good damage for that little mana, but kinda boring and takes out the mindgames of this card.

I personally think it should've been 4 damage to target creature unless its controller discards 2 cards at random. It would be an interesting take on blazing salvo, since like blazing salvo, that player has to decide whether the card disadvantage would be worth keeping that creature alive, or whether you have another regular burn in your hand and it would be pointless to discard 2 cards becuase you're gonna burn it with lightning bolt anyway.

Although, Blazing Salvo isn't that good (did a quick check on decklists, there's almost no ranked deck that uses blazing salvo), but with this version of skullscorch, i... (see all)

I used to think this card was awesome until I realized it is 4 damage to a player for RedRed. If you like Hymn to Tourach but think it is a little too powerful look at Fall.

Er.. a red Hymn? What the hell. I'm amazed! Red is the colour the always surprises me the most.

4 damage to player for RR is great. at the time, you compared this to shock, not bolt. dont look at me like that! 'what bolt? there are lots of bolts!' THAT BOLT. YOU KNOW THE ONE I MEAN.

Both of those options are great for RR. The fact that your opponent can choose one detracts from it, but not much.

@ ASUpin oh, but it's so much more, yes ability wise it just adds burn but I get an evil smile on the inside whenever my opponent nervously shuffles through their hand trying to decide whether they risk their strategy or take a nasty burn for 1/5 of their life.

Also, I consider this card to be great alongside BrowBeat

Waiting for a reprint.

It should've been worded in a way that they must take the damage if they don't have two cards to discard.

Still cool enough for me anyways so I got a set ;
