I wonder how many people here actually know what Ball Lightning is? Well, for those of you who don't, it's an "atmospheric electrical phenomenon". No one is quite sure what it is, but it has been observed appearing out of nowhere (with or without a thunderstorm nearby), usually hovering or floating along, and then mysteriously vanishing. It can be incendiary, or it can phase through objects without leaving a trace. If you want to learn more about it, go to:


So yeah, even though Ball Lightning doesn't really have a little mouth and eyes, it is real!

Great card, there's not much out on turn three that can stop a Ball Lightning unless it's a wall like Wall of Frost or Wall of Denial.

The true embodiment of red

if an enemy has a first strike creature out, then obv burn the creature and then ball lightning afterwards. You're red; you have burns in your hand for this purpose.

if the enemy has a burn or some kind of removal for it, at least it's 1 for 1 (though you're probably set back 1-2 mana). Or it gets counter'd, fog'd, etc. The thing is, lots of creatures face these problems. But when it comes down to it, ball lightning is 6 damage for 3 mana. It's hard to find a better deal than that.
