This card illustrates the difference between game-oriented flavour and flavour that does not attempt to integrate with the way the game is actually played. Rolling Temblor is a card that attempts to convey its flavour directly via it's interactions on the battlefield. Even it's flashback cost is intented to evoke the 'temblor' erupting once more from beneath the earth (the graveyard in that instance).
Scorch the Fields, on the other hand, pays little attention to the fact that there will likely be non-Human creatures on the battlefield whenever this spell is cast which the dragon's flames can somehow ignore.
But Scorch the Fields isn't trying to have flavour that works within the context of a duel. Its trying to tell the tale of a dragon raiding a human settlement within the space of a card --flavour over function, rather than flavour and function combined.
Or maybe it isn't trying to do that? Maybe the spell just targets Humans because that's how it... (see all)

This could have been the art for a bigger boardwipe effect.

Maybe an Armageddon-style card, which destroys all lands or something.

Maybe it could've been a spiritual reprint of Jokulhaups (if it isn't on the revised list).

Right now, it's a very, VERY slow singular land destruction card. Where in the world is Stone Rain?

I think this card proves that realistic isn't always good.

Why damage to humans only? Are things like cats immune to fire?

That art is shamed by the text below it.

I dislike this card.

I want this art plastered on the side of a building.

terrible card but OW YEAH FLAVOR

0.5/5 so that you find it when looking for the lowest rated card :)

@yamas11: you suck, read the cardname and flavortext.
Hint: Burning crops causes people to not have food. Unless they eat what cats eat.
