I love variations of Fireball and Blaze. Personally Disintegrate is the best. Demonfire and Banefire are tied for most tenacious. This is good because it stops you from being milled, and it makes Bloodghast stay dead. We could all use that.

I used this card to nail an opponent stuck at 11 life in EDH after he dumped his Raksha Golden Cub and an army of Cat Soldiers onto the battlefield in a last-ditch effort to aggro my Numot deck out. It didn't go well for him during my main phase.

Very good in limited but crap for constructed, just a glorified blaze.

In the meantime, Green gets an overpowered tutor that's viable in almost all formats...
Red gets shafted on damn near every cycle nowadays, with probably only Pyromancer's Ascension being a recent exception.

I think it's quite a bit better than it first appears. Unlike most of the other Zeniths, this one scales down nicely while still maintaining value. It's not just another Demonfire either — you can re-use it!

Why is this rated so much lower than Disintegrate? A reusable one sounds great to me.

Why is this rated so low? First of all, it shuts down any graveyard based abilities, such as Mimic Vat, you shuffle it back into your library, therefor making it useful both late game and early game. Awesome.

@ Nighthawk42 Disintegrate kills indestructibles. The creature still takes the damage, but the destroy effect doesn't happen. Disintegrate says if the creature would take lethal damage-damage equal to its toughness-it's removed from the game entirely. Disintegrate is my favorite burn spell for that reason, but this card is still aces if you have any love of the burn.

I think it would be cool if, instead of "if a creature dealt damage this way dies, exile it" if some red spells had "if this assigns damage equal or greater than a creatures toughness, exile it" or similar. That way, spells like this would be able to remove indestructible creatures (by exiling them, bypassing lethal damage)

Am I wrong, but maybe this could have been the first spell of this variety to be an Instant?

Devil's play (its successor) is not as good. I guess that's asking for a lot though. I still think it's a really solid card for any Red deck.

Took me forever to realize that those goblins are not cheering, but panicking... actually now I'm not sure.
