The thing I don't get about Avacyn Restored is the amount of red "army" cards. There are many red cards like this that are only good when you have out many creatures. (e.g. Burn at the Stake, Banners Raised, etc...) However, I can only find one red card that actually makes tokens or multiple creatures, and that is Thatcher Revolt. How does Wizards expect us to make red token decks if they don't give us any red tokens?
@JonTheRed- Thanks, I had assumed you were supposed to use this in R/W, but it seems weird that there are virtually no red cards with which to use this. You're sorta forced to add in white. That is, you can't really play this, Banners Raised, Kessig Malcontents or Burn at the Stake unless you are playing R/W. Of course, Red does have a lot of small weenies in Avacyn Restored, but it doesn't have any cards that really make this worth pl... (see all)

Yeah, whenever I play against this, it is always followed by Burn at the Stake to my face. I should invest into board sweepers one of these days.

actually works as a good substitute for Brightstone ritual in my goblin deck. I just need to find a few more substitutes and i can play goblins in standard until october :P

This is gonna be fun once Return Rolls around. I have a deck idea, mostly just for the hell of it, that runs this with Goblin Electromancers, and Krenko, Mob Boss. I know it's never going to be the most efficient use of him, but it will be a fun way to ramp into.... i don't know, an Epic Experiment.

In a R/W token deck deck it allows the owner to splash their big cards early!

Krenko > make 20 dudes > battle hymn > any burn spell.

You fellas have got to think outside the box. The only reason to run this in a goblin deck is if you already have 4 brightstone rituals in that goblin deck. Or if, for some weird reason, you only play standard.

You have to look at the upsides and downsides to either card. Brightstone ritual costs 1 less, but only counts goblins. This costs 2, but it counts EVERYTHING YOU OWN. Which means Kobolds.

This card takes on a whole new meaning with Young Pyromancer now printed. With some storm decks already running him why not run this card too?

This really shines in an Elven Burn deck. Ramping into massive Banefires is very satisfying, to say the least. 4/5
