MTG COTD: Lightning Surge

Discussion in 'Alternate TCG Discussion' started by klducks, Dec 21, 2005.

    Lightning Surge - Judgement. Rare
    3RR: Sorcery
    Lightning Surge deals 4 damage to target creature or player.
    Threshold - Instead Lightning Surge deals 6 damage to that creature or player and the damage can't be prevented.
    Flashback 5RR (You may play this card from your graveyard for its flashback cost. Then remove it from the game.)

    A pretty bleh card. I guess if you run a heavy burn deck, you could have 7 sorceries + in your graveyard. I dunno, I'd rather run Lava Axe since it only uses 1 red mana instead of 2 and it's a secure 5 damage, instead of a possible 6, a possible 4. Lava Axe indeed.

    The Duck's Rating: 1.5/5

    A decent card, four damage for five mana isn't too bad and it does have a chance of doing six damage, the Flashback cost is a little too much though.Fireblast is probably better then this though. 2/5

    TenteiKarite PRIMAL

    it's a tad overcosted (the majority of the time), but it could find a home in a deck with some mana excel (i.e. Seething Song, Desperate Ritual, Mana Seism) that could make use of its Flashback, but it'd be better just to use Fireball in that kind of deck.
    Casual:3/5 access to the aformentioned Mana excel
    Limited:2/5 not so much mana excel here, and the RR in its cost hurts its chances of making a R/G deck.
    Art:4/5 Freeeky.
