Oh wow, just accidentally stumbled upon this and discovered it currently has a perfect 5 star rating. Makes sense for a new set as it just gets put into the Gatherer's database, as only a few people have rated it so far, but it's still pretty weird to see, especially since I was just looking to see if there were any perfectly rated cards the other day and found none.

Well, I won't be the one to break the seal, lol. 5 Stars. 4 damage for R is great, even with the limitations. This completely and utterly creates tempo for you.

Very close to Lightning Bolt, but this fails for three major reasons:

Without creatures on the field, it's useless.

It cannot hit planeswalkers.

It cannot finish off an opponent at low HP.

Of course with proper redirection a-la Boros Reckoner or cards like Stuffy Doll that doesn't matter, but it's still situational.

It's really weird to see this without some kind of flavor alteration. How are the Eldrazi relevant to Innistrad again? Unless Sorin accidentally brought back some friends...

5/5. Sure, it can't hit players, but nowadays 99% of the time your opponent will have lots of creatures, and 99% of the time killing creatures is what wins games.

That one extra damage this has over spells like lightning bolt is surprisingly relevant. One mana to take out a creature like Rhox War Monk or Serra Angel is a great deal. This clears a path in an aggro deck against troublesome blockers.

The very fact that it can compete with lightning bolt (though it has several shortcomings) makes it very very powerful. If it were standard legal when Restoration Angel was running around, it would have been a great sideboard card.
