Wood Elemental is forgivable since WotC had no clue what they were doing back then. Crud like this makes it very clear they know *exactly* what they are doing - printing common garbage to waste space in boosters so folks rush out and buy more in the hopes of getting a playable card. Compare with Grave Titan, remember that rarity is not supposed to equal power and mythics were not supposed to be tournament staples, and you'll see what I mean.

4 of these + 4 Chimney Imps = Unstoppable Deck.

I feel strangely honored to know I have the third-worst-rated card in the entire Gatherer.

Not so honored that I have about 10 copies of this clunker.

This is probably one of the best candidates for a 0.5 rating I can think of.

First of all, it's below the curve. Way below the curve. Its P/T spread is vaguely reminiscent of Ball Lightning.

Second, it can't block.

Third, if you win a Clash, one of the less interesting abilities in the game, you get.... a 5/2 for {5}{B}.

So to sum up, a creature that can pretty much never take any hits whatsoever that comes out turn 6, and if you're lucky will occasionally be completely uselessly stronger.

The only things I can think of for this card is that it's a creature that can trigger a clash ability, if you're running a Sylvan Echoes deck and REALLY NEED A 6 DROP BLACK CREATURE THAT CAN'T BLOCK.

So yeah, this is just plain terrible. I think Face of Fear is actually better, though this can deal more damage.

Lowest-rated common and third lowest-rated overall. What a crap card.

"Dies to Scorching Spear" is not a very dignified distinction for a 6cmc creature.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
