People will compare this to Fireball, but it's not.  It's actually quite different.  Here is why:
#1 - Kick off cost is RR vs R on Fireball
#2 - You MUST pay at least 1 for Y or Z to make it even target anything, where Fireball gives you a built in target.
#3 - It does have an upside, though.  Fireball makes you split damage.  On this card, there is no damage split - it will deal X, as many times as you spend for Y or Z. 

That all said, how good is an X spell that requires you to spend 4 to even do 1 to 1 target?  Even at a whopping 9 mana, you're looking at 4 damage to 3 targets.  That's Shower of Coals at threshhold, and it's only 5 mana.

In limited, though, burn is burn is burn.  Anything that deals more than 1 damage, can hit a creature, and it variable, is good.  Not optimal, but definitely playable.

Constructed: 2
Limited: 3.75
Current Price:
$1.45

Not a bad burn spell for the Unglued set. Pretty versatile.  Better in limited than in constructed, but if you're playing unglued....

PS: For those of you that are interested in seeing more, the cards from this set are completely hilarious! If you'd like to see pictures of some of the cards, you can See Them Here.  Just click on Non Foil Singles, then find the link to Unglued, and after you click on it, you can click on the card names to see the pics of each card. =)

Constructed: 3
Limited: 3.5

A more expensive version (by 1R) of Fireball. X spells are great in limited, but otherwise, I'd just play Fireball in constructed.
 
Constructed: 2
Limited: 4.5

Versatile, but too expensive, although it's one of the only reasonable burn
cards in the set.  although cards that remove multiple creatures in limited
are always good.
constructed - 3.1
limited - 3.5

The Ultimate Nightmare of WotC Customer Service is actually a decent card. Sure it is more costly than a Fireball but it is great for spreading around precise amounts of damage where needed.

 

Constructed A little slow but not too shabby 2.45

 

Limited Very useful as is any removal 2.95

 

PEZ Decent but slow 2.10

Scott Sager The Ultimate Nightmare of Wizards of the Coast Customer Service

The all purpose removal spell that gets around CoP:Red and other typical anti-red sideboard hate.

<editor & Level I judge's note:  A spell's color is defined by the mana used to cast it, not the actual color of the card.   This is actually a red card.  - Scott>

Ltd:  Probably the best uncommon in the set.  This wins games by itself.

Constructed:  5

Limited:  5
