Combine this with a card that gives or has Vigilance. It would not only be able to defeat an opponent with a Zombie-Drain deck, but a powerful card could defend too.

My Black Knight is walking out and about on border patrol.In his hands he holds a Blazing Torch. When he suddenly see's an Etched Champion coming towards him. My Knight instinctively throws a Blazing Torch at it and sets the Etched Champion on fire. The knight manically laughs at the hunk of molten steel, wondering why so many feared the Etched Champion and why nobody else ever thought to kill the almighty champion with a torch. As the Knight looked through the Buried Ruin, he got his torch and lit it again. The Black Knight went back on patrol to make sure the he alone claimed the Contested War Zone.

Moral of the story, this is an easy way to kill Etched Champion. 5/5 in my book.

I love it in limited. Its more or less colorless burn. I usually draft U/W, so one or two of these comes in very handy. Lots of things die at 2 damage.

In a world teeming with vampires and zombies, it would make sense for flaming torches to be rather common.
