Firespout

Did someone say board wipe?  Any card that can clear the courtroom is worth looking at, and usually worth playing.  Granted, red/green is usually the color that is hurt most by this, but the fact that you can control which half goes off and which doesn't is a very nice tweak.

Constructed- 4

Casual- 3.5

Limited- 4

Firespout
 
Firespout has already seen play in Standard and Block constructed as a foil to large groups of elves, kithkin, and fairies, and for good reason - it's well worth the mana you pay for it. It's not entirely inaccurate to call it the green Wrath of God. (Yes, really - think about it.) And the check for mana colors means you can make it completely one-sided, in a way I haven't really seen since Pernicious Deed. This is a very good card to have around, in any format.
 
Constructed: 3/5

Firespout:

 

Constructed: Block and Standard this card is the best removal for green and red decks. Other formats not that great.

 

Casual: This card can really cause you to get other players mad at you when you clear the board with a green and red deck.

 

Limited: Top pick and top use in sealed. Great card to have.

 

Overall a great card that will be used in Block and Standard constructed for a long time.

 

Constructed: 4

Casual: 4

Limited: 4
