That 1 damage is very important. It can kill Restoration Angel, Loxodon Smiter and Sire of Insanity to name but a few. Sure Lightning Helix costs less and is generally the better card but when you're going up against these creatures, you'd rather have this card.

I think it's obvious why they didn't reprint Lightning Helix. See Snapcaster Mage. That would warp the format too much.

No thank you. I'd rather use Spark Trooper. Same block, no less.

Perhaps we ought to consider that blue enchantment from Avacyn Restored, Arcane Melee. It reduces this to exactly lightning helix cost, makes Obzedat's aid cheap, and does a really good job with the flashback costs on innistrad cards (Forbidden Alchemy for example).

Rare, no less ;)

Although, I don't think that 2 extra mana was worth one more damage over Lightning Helix...

should have traded the 2 colorless for 1 extra red, or a red/white hybrid. 4 is too much for a burn spell, even one that does 4 damage, especially not when you can just use the much more efficient Lightning Helix for essentially the same thing

So...Sunforger? Sounds like a plan.

Secretly Phyrexian, Aurelia?

either kills a threat and gains back some life, or a straight up 8 point life swing. definitely not to be laughed at.

Really don't like the art. There are so many well-rendered Angels from the last few blocks that this picture is just yuck. She looks like Xena with wings.

Card's okay. I'm not thrilled about it. There aren't that many hasty 4 toughness creatures in the format so other than Exava and Resto Angel I don't see where it fits in as a 4 mana instant. That's too slow IMO but I'm no pro.
