Rekindled Flame

Reusable burn is almost never not worth using. Honestly, I'm surprised Thunderblade Charge didn't see more use. The condition may be a little hard to trigger, but any burn spell that can take out multiple creatures is worth looking into.

Constructed- 3.5
Casual- 3.5
Limited- 4.5

Rekindled Flame
 
I loved Hammer of Bogardan back in the day, and this latest great-grandchild of the Mirage block is fairly solid. The condition needed to return it is a little more difficult than for its ancestor (or even for its half-brother Thunderblade Charge) because it depends on your opponent rather than on yourself, but I wouldn't be too surprised to see this in constructed play at some point - even a one-time effect of four damage for one mana isn't terrible.

This is basically a super expensive The Rack which is off colour. Obviously it sucks. It could hit creatures though but why would I use
something like this to hit creatures? It would be marginally ok if it was instant but sorcery ruins this card.

Rekindled Flame

 

Construction: It is like the Hammer but it triggers off an opponent not have any cards in their hand. 4 damage for 4 at Sorcery is okay. The ability is good but you have to have a opponent with no hand. I am sure I would keep at least one card in my hand during your unkeep.

 

Casual: Burn is always fun. In multi-player someone will eventally not have any cards in their hand.

 

Limited: This card burns away alot of critters. Especially Tuesdays COD. Or if your opponent is at 4 life than its game over. Good thing it is a rare.

 

Overall a good burn spell with a nice ability. With the opporunity to use over again.

 

Constructed: 3

Casual: 3

Limited: 4

 

Almost there.

Rekindled Flame deals 4 damage to target creature or player.
At the beginning of your upkeep, if an opponent has no cards in hand, you may return Rekindled Flame from your graveyard to your hand.
 
Nice card, you think its worthwhile, combine it with discard but then you hit a stumbling block. With almost no instant speed discard in T2 it becomes an expensive burn spell (Flame Javelin at the same cost or cheaper). In basically any game your opponent while simply sandbag a land and you'll never see the flame again, so maybe combine with LD, not likely.
In limited its burn so take it.
 
Constructed: 1.5/5
Casual: 2.5/5
