Great art, I love red spellcasters.

One of the best cards in Standard right now. The sniper ability with basilisk collar is unbelievable. Protect him with green or blue and watch him dominate the board.

Great for red burn, even if he is just chump blocking.

Replaces my vulshock sorcerers in my T1 damage deck XD

Probably the best red uncommon in type 2 now.
Give him a basilisk collar, and he'll keep a board under control.
Also, very nice low cost. He goes nicely as a defender for my red/blue burn deck.

Cheza, red likes it because it has a body. It's a burn spell that you can play every turn on top of the spells in your hand. A handful of Lightning Bolt is devastating; a hand full of Lightning Bolt and a field full of pingers dominates the board. Besides, you don't always want to waste your Lightning Bolt.

I don't know how many times my brother's Jace deck has chipped me to death with with one drop 1/1 fairies with flying; that can only block flying. I didn't want to waste the 3 damage from my Lightning Bolt on them (prefering to cast it against him directly). Outside of using Pyrotechnics to take all four of them out at once, nothing beats pinging the slippery bastards to death.

Also, there's a Cunning Lethomancer or something like that in black that makes people discard cards; so maybe it's a cycle of cunning Human Shamans.

Basilisk Collar!

In my opinion, the best red 3 mana pinger. Better than Prodigal Pyromancer due to haste, less red intensive than Vulshok Sorcerer, puts most other pingers to shame.

lol NoobOfLore - that's exactly what I said.

This guy has more weapons on him than ANY other Magic card, and he has zero Power. WTF? :)

Almost strictly better than Prodigal Pyromancer.
