EDH. Nuff said.

so, it's a Lightning Helix spliced onto a Comet Storm? I can live with that. I can live for a really long time with that.

Awesome for Commander games. The best part is that it only targets one creature so it's a great way to get around Lightning Greaves or any other shroud effects. Just target another creature that shares a color with your real target.

And why use Light of Sanction when Mark of Asylum is better protection for a cheaper casting cost.

Cast this and use Dauntless Escort's ability. For even more fun and carnage, target Ink-treader Nephilim, since it's all but one color and will make sure the field clears of anything non-black.
You could also use it with Shifting Sky or Painter's Servant to automatically target everything

Technically speaking one can run a Boro's deck without red creatures. White weenies not only have more utilities they also have a lot of pro-red ones, allow you to cast Brightflame without hurting any of your own, even if opponents run white creatures. (that is, of course, if theirs don't have pro-red also)

The initial cost of this spell is hefty though. If your opponent is not running weenies this card would not only be very hard to cast it would also do little good.

This thing is actually pretty scary against things like white-weenie, elves and merfolk (like you could get it off against merfolk, but oh well) if you can cast this with X=3 or more you probably wipe their field and win. Anyone running a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight EDH deck should auto-include this.

It may be expensive, but against the right decks this really can deliver a win immediately. probably a sideboard card, but a very well balanced and designed card. Even getting hit by this I have fun.

Use it on a commander and the whole deck dies.

I just keep imagining paying 7 on a saproling and killing 13 saprolings to gain 52 life!

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
