Okay, I don't understand the cumulative upkeep. Sometimes it seems to help you (like that card that adds Red to your mana pool) and sometimes it hurts you. Can you please explain?

land_comment: cumulative upkeep was designed to be a drawback, to balance more powerful cards. Braid of Fire is unique in that it is the only card with a cumulative upkeep cost that is beneficial to you.

braid of fire is only beneficial now because there is no longer any mana burn. Before that was changed, it was still a somewhat risky card to play.

I find this card to work pretty effectively. It's a cheap medium-fatty that doesn't find some way to tie your mana down subsequent turns (like echo or cumulative upkeep). The penalty easily turns into a card advantage bonus if you only use it for a single attack and then let it die for 2 cards. I like to use it with cards like Daze and Gush so I have Islands in my hand to discard. Blue doesn't need a lot of lands in play to work.
