Hey, if you're drafting Jund, and you need more cheap removal, this is pretty good. Plus, it's got other uses (I once got a redicously overcharged Rockslide Elemental with the help of Mycoloth, slapped this on it, and was able to kill the Naya player's fatties).

I think people aren't looking at it right. It's not as good as Incinerate, and there are better ways to give your creature +3 power, but are there many cards that can do both? This gets a 3.5 for flexibility.

So.... it's a bigger Immolation?

Removal that works on some low-toughness regenerators and indestructible creatures, and it can boost your beefier creature in a pinch. It works well as a deterrent, turning a beatstick into something that only ends up attacking once.
It works as either non-color discriminatory removal, a decent creature buff, or, in rare cases, an enemy creature debuff, when you're confident that it can't be used against you.

I once killed a Mossbridge Troll with a couple of these.
Totally worth it.

Riot Spikes got bigger and meaner. And greener.

It's either very Jund flavored removal, or a very scary Jund flavored buff.
Either way, it's a handy card. It plays to my reckless, berserk side, small as it may be.

This could kill an indestructible creature, where Incinerate couldn't.

Solid card, either a removal or a creature pump.

Sangrite Surge, just for flavorful fun.

it's a handy creature killer. 90% of the time you'll be using it on your opponents. i like that you can use it as a pump, but i'm not going to do that against a burn deck. it's a great card if you play it right.
