    Rift Bolt - Timespiral. Common
    2R: Sorcery
    Rift Bolt deals 3 damge to target creature or player.
    Suspend 1 -R (Rather than play this card from your hand, you may pay R and remove it from the game with a time counter on it. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter. When you remove the last, play it without paying its mana cost.)

    The sorcery lightning bolt with suspend. This is a cool card for what it's worth. a 1 mana 3 damage burn spell aint half bad. What I dont like is most people just play it first turn to get 3 damage in to the face, which is a waste of removal IMO.

    In some cases, I'd rather have Seal of Fire since this card has limited timing tricks, even if it has 1 less damage.

    However, this card is still a nice card to have.

    IS this dodn't have suspend- well, it'd have the ame effect as some other card, I think. But suspend is what keeps it good if at all.

    Not bad. It's like a Spark or something like that. The only problem with this is that it's a sorcery. Graaaagh.

    The suspend Lightning Bolt. Wow. This is probably the least impressive card remake that I have so far seen. It gives your opponent a huge window of time to take advantage of, and it's probably amazing if there's a worthwhile target in play when you unsuspend it, or if it won't be countered. Not only that, but it lets the monster attack you during that window, and is just a bad Volcanic Hammer if not suspended. I suppose it looks good, but in my opinion, this is an extremely weak card. Slow burn is bad burn (with the possible exception of good X-burn). There's not enough uses for it to actually make a difference, unless it's serving to discourage creature play. Especially with how much the (B and R) Rusalkas are being run.
