Always been a great removal spell with an awkward mana cost. I do prefer the old art, though.

It WILL NOT kill a player at 5 life. Players will only lose the game for having 0 or less life when State-Based Actions are checked, which happens every time a player gains priority.

To understand SBAs, another action that happens when SBAs are checked is that creatures with damage marked on them >= their toughness (or 0 toughness) will be sent to the graveyard. Think of something like Maro. If you cast Wheel of Fortune, you will discard your hand then draw 7 cards. After you discard your hand, Maro technically has 0 toughness, before you draw your new 7. However, no player has priority (i.e. has the ability to cast spells) while a spell is resolving; thus, Maro will not die.

In a similar fashion, SBAs are not checked until Fiery Justice has resolved. Say your opponent is at 3 life. You target them with Fiery Justice, and it deals 5 damage to them, putting them TEMPORARILY at -2 life. Then the second sentence kicks in and puts ... (see all)

Hi Kael. Looks like you learned how to flame strike out of your face.

Pretty sure this isn't like Hidetsugu's Second Rite. That deals ten damage to a player at a certain life, while this deals five divided to any target, unless there's only one opponent, who if I'm reading the rulings right, will not die from it.

It is however a very good politics card. That I don't disagree with.

I love this card.
But I absolutely hate that art, especially on the gold frame. Yeck!

Art makes me want to run it in Kaalia.

Also, next to Fell Shepherd, makes it look like a Red Lantern vs. Nekron :)

In singleplayer, this may as well be Hidtsugu's Second Rite for half the damage. In multiplayer, however, it's a great politics card.

@MasterofCruelties: It's similar in that it will kill you opponent if he or she has 5 (or less) life.

That was my flamethrower's name when I was a nazi in WW2! How did they know? Also, it was in German.

I'm not wild about the new art, but every time I cast this card, I love it a little more
