I'm sure there's a CSI: Miami joke in here somewhere....

for those who are dissing this as a glorified blaze, let me compare.

blaze: x damage. no other abilites....

this card: blaze + reusable + EXILE BURNT CREATURE IF IT DIES...... how you can even begin to simply compare it to a horible blaze is beyond me. Blaze is the worst of all the red X burn spells.

fireball split damage
disintegrate exile burnt creature if it dies.
you can even cast this new card for only 1-2 damage so it doesn't sit in your hand like the old mirrodin cycle sun cards. and with 4 of them you are almost guaranteed not to mill out since you can cast them for 1 even and put it back in your library.

While I don't consider it at as good as Banefire, it's certainly much better than Blaze and better than Disintegrate for it's reusable effect if it's not countered.

Sorry, but what were they thinking?
This is probably 2. best X-burn spell there is.
Best is IMO Comet Storm.

I like this card for a very different reason than anybody else- more than any other color, I care about the art of Red cards. I want the spells that have 'Fire' in their name to look like the biggest damn explosions EVER! I dont mean matche sparks or the dumb little flames like I could see in anybody's kitchen if you leave the 5-year-old unattended- I WANT A WAR ZONE!
and the ones with 'Lightning' (or synonyms) better make me want to say 'FEEL the Power of the DARK SIDE!' (top reason I used to auto 4x the Ravnica Sparkmage Apprentice)

So, this to me is a direct improvement not over Fireball, but over Shivan Meteor!- Im not just throwing a ball of burning fossil fuels or volcano puke or whatever that was at you-- Im throwing THE F'ING RED SUN OF MIRRODIN AT YOU! Its probably being Launched from the Great Furnace by Beacon of Destruction. =D

Comet Storm, while of course a nice card with a powerful effect, looked more like burning rain to me than actual comets. Lavaball Trap s... (see all)

"Ok, so we're making a red X cost card for a cycle. all the others have neat abilities!"
"make it a Blaze only a little better."
"But we do that in like every blo--"

Blaze was pwned more. Fireball can atleast split it's damage.

@blindthrall - Disintegrate will NOT get rid of an indestructible creature. It says nothing about removing it from the game if it gets damage equal to its toughness.

What it DOES say is "if that creature would be sent to the graveyard this turn, exile it instead." Disintegrate won't send an indestructible creature to the graveyard, because an indestructible creature ignores the effects of lethal damage, and so it won't exile it. (If you find a way to send it to the grave later in the same turn, it'd still apply though).

Read the official Oracle rules text rather than referring to the text that appears on the 4th- or 5th-edition cards. They're several generations of rules out of date.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
