I think that this card has a depth exceeding it simply being ''another X spell.'' I think Zendikar was a big turning point for red. Not an identity change or anything, but I get the sense that R&D has put some special care into improving the overall quality of red spells.

this is a combination of gameplay-level functionality along the lines of burst lightning,staggershock or chandra ablaze with flavorful cards toting splashy and fun effects like comet storm, obsidian fireheart, surreal memoir, koth of the hammer and inferno titan.

comet storm is easily my favorite red spell besides Koth to come out in a long time. I feel like it is the most direct competition for the zenith. Comet Storm is at it's best as a sweeper. The more targets you have, the more efficient the mana expenditure. The zen... (see all)

It would have been a ton better as an instant!

Does this spell get shuffled into the library if it is countered?

A reusable Demonfire... just missing Hellbent.

I was wondering if someone cast Red Sun's Zenith with X = 3. can it be countered by Mental Misstep?

I've been playing this one as an instant for almost a year now.

Great card. The shuffle back in is a nice bonus, but the key is the exile effect. This card hoses undying cards, as well as other pests like Doomed Traveler, Gravecrawler and Loyal Cathar. I suppose it also hoses Morbid.

Also, on MTGO, if you target your own creature with X=0 (to remove an Ice Cage), and then the creature dies in combat, the creature is still exiled. Interesting. I guess being dealt 0 damage is still being dealt damage.

The only thing I don't like about this card is its lack of flavor text.

Underrated. Quality.

The fact that it only hits one creature is kinda lame, but the low R cost makes it easy to use to get rid of creatures such as Geralf's Messenger, which I know from experience is hard to deal with if you're playing a burn deck.
