These are the important differences between Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast.

1. Pyroblast can target Phantasmal Image (copying a non-blue creature) to make it disappear.
2. A blue mage can cancel Pyroblast with Misdirection and changing the target to a non-blue permanents.
3. If you have extra mana in a Storm combo, you can use Pyroblast on any permanent to make your Tendrils of Agony bigger.

There are advantages and disadvantages to either card. I recommend Red Elemental Blast because it's harder to Redirect, unless you play Storm cards or your friends play Phantasmal Image.

Water mages? How many of those have we even seen in Magic? Like, the number of cards that depict water being manipulated directly are pretty rare, I can think of maybe 5 right now... Oh well, still a nice card.

As of Theros block and Heroic, this is now strictly better than Red Elemental Blast. You can target any of your nonblue creatures to get a heroic effect, and you can't do that with REB

Although I suppose it was really Skulking Ghost that made it strictly better...
