Molten Disaster

In a world without Earthquake, this is better in almost every way. Not only is it nigh uncounterable as long as you have RRR, it wipes the board of what you want it to. Your opponent's guys die, your Dragon lives. Aggro will be more popular now that Lorwyn's out, and that means any card that can kill a wave of little guys all at once is extraordinarily valuable.

Constructed- 4.5
Casual- 4
Limited 4.5

Aethereal

Thursday - Molten Disaster

Now this is a pretty handy board clearing card. It is very mana intensive, but it WILL clear the board of small things. And again, it goes well with Greater Gargadon if you have creatures out when you use this (what is this, things that are good with him week?). The option to add split second is just icing on the cake. A solid red card overall, but it doesn't replace Pyroclasm; it has its own place.

In limited, great for clearing the board or dealing those last few points needed to win (remember, this hits players too).

Constructed - 3
Casual - 3
Limited - 3

Molten Disaster

Like its ancestor Earthquake, this card gives you a high level of control over the size of the disaster, ideally so that your creatures survive and your opponent's don't. That versatility alone would make it playable. The fact that the kicker allows you to kill Troll Ascetic, Augur of Skulls, Korlash (if you have enough mana), and get through a counter wall puts it over the top. I expect this card to see a lot of play in the next year.

Constructed: 4/5
Casual: 4/5

Molten Disaster

This card has won so many games for me it's not even funny. 90% of the time I need to topdeck something for the win, it's this card. Split second is really good, as it can kill Troll Ascetic against opponents that do not set up regeneration shield during upkeep. It also wipes the board clean against any creature based deck. It's also a key player in mono red Stuffy Doll burn.

In casual, it still wipes of the field. In limited, it has a heavy red mana requirement but seeing as how it's mass removal and burn damage, it's still extremely good here.

Constructed: 4/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 3.5/5
Meb9000 Molten Disaster

Here we have a very interesting spell from Future Sight that many people thought would be U/R control's best friend, but since the Urzatron left Standard, that has yet to be the case. In any regards, Disaster works well as a finisher for R/G decks that use a lot of mana elves and have already been turning on the offense for most of the game. It also helps deal with hordes of ground-pounders as well. The ability to give this split-second is just gravy, since it just laughs at the various Teaching and Mono U control decks out there.

Constructed: 3/5
Limited: 5/5
