Comet Storm

Red is the color of Seething Song, so getting the mana you need into this shouldn't be too hard, right? And a Fireball with a built in Forkis noting to sneeze at-- you can go "low X, many kicks" and take out your opponent's army like a one-sided Firespout, or go "high X, unkicked" to take it straight into your opponent or take down one big creature that's too big for any of your other burn. And of course, any card that can take down multiple creatures is worth consideration, even if the mana is a little much.

Comet Storm
 
I'd put Comet Storm in more decks, if I didn't think I'd have to hire a mathematician to calculate how much damage it just did. It seems to have been designed for multiplayer, but I'd be very surprised if you never found one pointed at you in any other play mode. And if you're still not sure how to get that much mana . . . check back tomorrow.

Magic The Gathering Card of the day: Comet Storm

Welcome back readers today’s card of the day is Comet storm an interesting red card from Worldwake, Comet storm acts as sort of a more expensive and more versatile Fireball. You can take out multiple targets and insure damage dealt. In standard this card is not seeing a huge amount of play as Banefire is the preferred finisher card and other forms of removal take care of pesky creatures and Day of Judgment to clear swarms. In extended this card won’t see much if any play its too slow and mana intensive to see play. In casual and multiplayer this card can be a good sweeper and a good finisher, combine with cards like Man Flare as well as Heartbeat of spring and go to town. In limited its removal but its mythic rare, so the chances of getting it is slim to none. Overall an interesting and flavorful card although Mythic status hurts it overall in limited, it’s a good fireball variant I cant complain.

Constructed: 2.5
Casual: 3.0
Limited: 3.5

Today's card of the day is Comet Storm which is similar in some ways to the old Fireball, but at Instant speed.  For five mana you can do two damage to two different creatures or players, for six mana it could be two damage to three targets, or three damage to two targets.  This is a very versatile later game burn spell, but of very minimal use in the early game.  It isn't the best choice for a large number of creatures or a single high toughness target, but excels at destroying or finishing off a few targets in the middle.  The added one mana cost compared to Fireball is more than made up for by the Instant speed and damage not being divided.
 
For Limited this is without a doubt a first pick in Booster as both a Mythic and a versatile potential bomb during the endgame.  In a pinch this can be used earlier to lesser effect, but sometimes that is all you need to gain the advantage.  The two Red in the casting cost does limit it for Sealed, but for the power any deck that can afford the Red mana sources should be playing it.
