Beware jank uncommons from an ill-tempered booster pack.

This card is awful, just awful. And yet, in the current Limited format, I always try to take these when possible. They aren't an incredibly high pick, but they aren't the dregs either, that some might think they would be. You cast this on turn one when you have nothing else to play, and you let it sit there as a cautionary reminder to your opponent that at any moment you could activate it and destroy their creature. In a way it plays like a really expensive Seal of Fire--which is alright, since colorless damage ought to come at a cost.

{4} to activate would not have broken this, especially at uncommon, neither would 4 damage. In fact 4 damage would put it on par with Flame Javelin in non-red. I kind of see what they're going for, assuming Flame Javelin is the benchmark, reducing the cost by one and the damage by one is reasonable, if underwhelming.

Then, one stormy day, a Zoq, a Fot, and a Pik were walking up a steep path looking for something good to eat, when a bolt of lightning struck nearby. With a huge flash of light, the bolt of energy carved a strangely-shaped chunk of granite out of a cliff.

It was a disk, with a hole in the middle!

As the rock began to roll down the hill, toward the three terrified beings some dry grass got caught in its hole, and since the rock was still hot the grass caught on fire.

When the rock finally got to the Zoq, the Fot, and the Pik they simultaneously discovered the Wheel, Fire, and Religion thus catapulting them on to the road of progress.

Which has led us to this day, Captain. Oh! How did the flaming wheel give religion to our Culture, you ask? I will explain. You see, when it got to the threesome, the flaming wheel was going at a pretty good clip and it ran smack into the Zoq, killing him. The Fot and the Pik felt so bad that they decided the Zoq hadn't really died when the wheel flatt... (see all)

I think they are doing the "toning down limited non-rare non-conditional removal down" a little too hard..

...I'm sorry, does that say 5? Really?

Compare to Aeolipile, which costs 2 and activates for 1 to hit a creature or a player for 2. This is reverse power creep. But hey, if you desperately need removal in Limited, it's there.

Lightning Bolts for everyone!!

Just 6!!

Get them while they last!


PS.: And then you find out you've been cheated and it can't even hit a player...
