Fireball is an elegant finisher, a relic of a brutal past long forgotten, when players had Disintegrate and Mana Flare. Even without ramp, it can be a sinister end your opponent never sees coming. Yesterday I stalled out a game with countermagic and burn until I had 13 islands and mountains, and then sent my opponent to the next dimension!!

Useful and super cheap. I like it.

No, when you cast the spell you have to choose the first legal target, and have the option to declare additional targets. You cant cast this spell with 0 targets.

And if you remove the target while this is on the stack, making it "0" targets, the spell will just fizzle away, not breaking any laws of mathematics.

Its literally impossible within the rules of magic to cast a targeted spell without a legal target. Thats the drawback to Hex. There has to be 6 legal targets on the field to even cast Hex.

I put this and Dual Casting in the newly released Izzet Duel Deck and handed it to my friend for a multiplayer match. He made three 10+ balls and then it was all over.

I have a question!!!
If I have Fireball in my graveyard, and my opponent uses a card whose effect reads, "You may play target instant or sorcery from target opponents graveyard without paying its mana cost." then does the (X) become a zero, or does your opponent pay (X) mana??

@Xineombine: You're playing Phyrexian Obliterator and Liliana Vess and talking about overpowered? Get the hell out. Plus Bonfire of the Damned which is the card you reference is far more powerful than this.

Also Magic came before Yugioh and Yugioh is just a cheap knockoff.

@Williambrutal: X is automatically 0.

I'm still holding out for a card that costs {X}{B}{B}{R}{R} that's ability is: Deal X damage to target opponent. You can only use Black and/or Red mana for X. Gain life equal to the amount of Black mana spent on this card and deal damage to target player equal to the amount of red mana used on this card.
@Xineombine So it should be rare because you lost to it? Well then I guess that means Goblin Piker should be rare because my opponent finished me off with it once. Oh wait...

Fireball is a fun thing to say when you finish off your opponents with this card. It's also very versatile because of it's multi-taget ability and the "X" damage. 5/5
