When I first saw it I liked it, but the realist
in me soon gave me a quick slap on the wrists.
Sitting in the same mana cost slot as Incinerate
and Lash Out, and yet doing a mere 1 damage,
looks very bleak. And yet the clash factor
suggests that maybe you might get more out of
it. Can you, really? Oh, the odds are slim, too
slim really for this ever to take the place of
Incinerate, but in Limited, maybe, if you have
some high mana cards and the clash would be of
particular use and you saw a ot of X/1's? Alas,
I doubt this will ever see serious play
It's probably not efficient enough for
constructed, not splashy or interesting enough
for casual, and it doesn't do enough damage to
many of the creatures that are best in limited.
If you get lucky, you might get to play it three
times or so. But at only one damage, I wouldn't
depend on it to win games.
Magic Noob in Canada since 2002
2 mana for 1 damage is really, really bad, It
does have the possibility for a reuse, but it
would a lot of clahses to mae this useful, and
even then it's still bad since it takes so much
mana. That said, it is unplayable in contructed.
In limited, it does kill various X/1, but
there's very little of them to make this card
good. At least it's not completely unplayable
here since it's still removal, and if you can
win multiple clashes, it can take down a larger
creature with enough mana.
Casual: 1/5, better clash cards out there
is Release the Ants from Morningtide. For two
mana, you get to deat 1 damage to a creature or
player, which isn't a whole lot considering that
most burn spells for 2 mana deal at least 2
damage. However, you also clash with an
opponent, not a bad thing considering you know
what you and your opponent are going to draw
next. If you win the clash, you get the card
back to your hand so you can play it again.
Morningtide has a set of cards like this and
this one can potentially burn for a lot of
damage. I'd personally would like it more if it
were 2 damage for two mana, but then this card
would be broken. For Limited, this is one of
red's better burn spells from Morningtide.
