I don't see what's so great about this card. Assuming that you aren't running any mana accel, this card's two earliest possible uses will look like this:

Turn 3: Tap all lands, deal 3 damage to something.
Turn 5: Return the Hammer to your hand by tapping all lands.
Turn 6: Use half of the mana available to cast it again.

This means that you've spent 11 mana and 2.5 turns to use 2 lightning bolts at sorcery speed. Also, as it has been said, this completely ignores red's philosophy of winning by the fifth turn.

This card is fabulous in multiplayer. Just having recurring cards in drawn-out games is fantastic.

This card was all the rage until they made a better version in Cursed Scroll. There are very few situations where I'd actually want to go back to using this card instead.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
