That's a pretty desperate ritual.

I hold with Binary Man. This is a great finisher if you place it where it needs to be. It's meant to be a late game card. It temporarily doubles your mana for a giant x spell. great stuff. 3.5/5

This might, might be useful if you need a desperate, late game fireball or something along those lines. But this is no Squandered Resources.

I've won casual games plenty-o-times with this and any R(X) damage card. Using a solid red deck with nothing but burn spells, it's pretty easy to keep the board clear and then toast your opponent.

Combo with Myojin of Infinite Rage

I have it in a casual Koth deck. It has 30 land, Countryside Crusher, and Crucible of Worlds, so I'm looking for the sacrifice. Koth's -2 for (MTN_COUNT) mana, tap for (LAND_COUNT) mana, Seism for (LAND_COUNT - 2) mana, and then Comet Storm as desired. For added bonus, play in a two-headed giant game and double your damage. Happens frequently enough to be edging up to mill and discard on my friends rage-o-meters.

What do all of you mean? This card is a great finisher! Think about this:

You have 12 Mountains on the battlefield, this and Banefire in your hand. You tap all your lands, that's 12 red mana, then pay 2 to play this, sac all your lands, for another 12 mana. That is 12-2+12=22 pure mana right there! Pay one for Banefire's CMC, then pay the rest, 21, on it's X cost... uncounterable and unpreventable 21 pure damage right at the opponent! Combo this and other mana accel cards and you would have a catastrophe! If you just use Banefire alone you would only get 11 damage.

Think, people, think.

How is this card useful in its own right?

Possibly the worst mana source ever.

I mean look at it, which jerk designed this card? You have to sacrifice three freaking lands to even gain mana accel. Colorless mana accel. This way you converted 1Red into 3. At sorcery speed. By blasting the majority of your stable mana sources. I tell you, on your next turn you'll be pretty much dead in the water.
You mean this card might be worth playing in the lategame? Then take a look at High Tide or Bubbling Muck, that's proper mana accel for the lategame.

Some sort of red Early Harvest in its very awful form. Or in general just about any mana accel in its very awful form.
