Holy crap this is unplayable.

Not a terrible card. Not constructed playable by any means. This was created for limited. But I still feel disappointed by this card. Normally I would over look a card like this and be like "Meh". But it has such an amazing art that I was sad.
What I would have liked to see for this card would be something along the lines of Blood Cultist. A small 3 mana timmy with a flavorful ability.

You can't really look at this card anywhere except Limited, which is obviously its intended home. In Limited it's quite good, one of the best commons in Dark Ascension. Even for the inflated flashback cost, a Shock is a Shock.

one of the best cards in DKA for limited should not be rates so low. 2 expensive shocks go a long way in this format, for lingering souls, etc.

Why is this art on this card?

Awesome art.. wasted on a bad limit card?

Why is everyone saying this card is unplayable? Removal *and* card advantage. This card could easily be a first pick in Limited.

Not incredible but if you're calling it unplayable even in limited you need to educate yourself on card advantage. Did you play Last Kiss in Rise because you needed 2 life or because it was 2 damage for 3? Now you get that same 2 damage for 3 plus card advantage by getting to cast it one more time.

Is six off-color an ugly cost for flashback? Sure. But I'd pay 10 if I need something burned and we've reached the late game with empty hands. The option to flash it back is better than not having that option no matter how much it costs to use.

I don't think this is quite as bad as people think. Two blasts of damage on one card are great. Sure, it's over-costed and in two colours, but I'd say it's at least a 3/5 for the utility of getting a pair of (expensive) shocks.

Incredible art, hence incredibly disappointed by the effect.
