am actually wouldnt flameblast just cost 1R to do the same thing to each creature your opponent controls? once he attacks the option to use his ability is open but it dosnt say that you can only use it once, so you could attack and pay 1R to do one damage to that creature and 1R to deal one to another and another, yes it does divide the mana to damage ratio in half but also the fact that he can target an opponent for the win and he costs 1 less mana to cast...

7 mana for a 6/6 flying, not too bad. Just give it first strike and use its ability to sac whatever can kill it

The existence of Baneslayer really, really deteriorates the value this otherwise appealing card. It just cannot compete. Isn't Wizards' policy supposed to be that rarity should not trump other aspects of a card? Honestly, Red and Black are going to have a tough time producing a rare bomb that can match the super rare baneslayer. And I think that's silly.
But in the context of the Magic I grew up with, the one without super rares, this card seems just fine. It's a 4 turn evasive clock that can hinder counterattacks and remove chumps, and it's incredibly flavorful, to boot. Oddly, I didn't see a single one at the prerelease...

In many cases, I would rather have Flameblast Dragon out.
Not to say this card isn't good,
Since you can actually spread out the damage against a lot of lesser creatures if need be.
Oh, giving it any sort of enchantment/equipment for deathtouch is also a deliciously evil scheme. ^^

I agree that Flameblast Dragon is generally better. I have to say though that comparisons to Baneslayer Angel are getting a little old, though. It's a dragon, so we've known for a year that it probably wouldn't be able to tackle with BA. Wizards has, however, released more cards for Red and Black (and even Green!) this time around that can deal with the angel, so it's now like there aren't any answers to her. Not every card is going to be able to take down every card, and that includes the Baneslayer. If she's overpowered now, at least she has protection from dragons and demons and not red and black, so Doom Blade and Combust can take care of her. By itself, the Hellkite is nice, but I prefer having Shivan Dragon back in the core set.

It's not a great dragon, but does anyone else think the release version is pretty cool?
