Combos with Lightning Bolt to the face.

This card is scary, to say the least. Don't even try playing a creature after this thing come down. Turn two Pack Rat? Frostburn Weird? Turn three Nightveil Specter? What about a Boros Charm for 4 and 4? No, the first thing you do is kill him, unless it's later into the game and you can afford to play a creature, then respond with a kill spell when they burn you.

Fortunately, he is also an enchantment, which means every color can destroy him (although it's kind of hard to do in blue). Clearly Wizards knew his potential to take over whole games, for if he wasn't an enchantment, the games would all go like turn three Lightning Strike you and your Fleecemane Lion, turn four Boros Charm you and your Smiter.

Red Deck Wins gets sooooo many tools from this block. I love it.

Doesn't combine with searing blood, because the creature has to die before it deals damage to the player. If your opponent had multiple creatures, sure. But it's not a strict combo.

Far far better than everyone else thinks. the 1 power is not going to matter as much as everyone thinks, when it's still DOUBLING ALL OF YOUR F R U CKING BURN SPELLS.

Main decking a playset of him in my burn deck (making it a burn/control) and keeping a playset of Young Pyromancer in the sideboard to convert to a RDW deck vs control. Brilliant.

Double the value, double the fun. Lets you control your opponent's board while keeping the clock running.

'round and 'round and 'round it goes. where it lands is right on your nose!

Look, you get even more value when combined with Searing Blood!

One thing I really like about this cycle is that they really DO feel like global enchantments while also being creatures.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
