    Another good one. The art is...fine.

    Nice!

    Super hot! Definitely a solid card in standard.

    Gotta say, they've been doing a great job making playable cards for FNM promos without hurting the secondary market for rares and mythics.

    Quote from clan_iraq

    Oh, I thought he was talking about playing a spell that is countering a spell with counters on it as it comes into play, but I see you guys were just discussing whether he was flashing a creature with flash in order to flash a flashback or just flashing a creature with flash but not needing flash in order to flashback a spell without flash.

    -regarding Snapcaster Mage.

    Well, I think I see an incentive to try and get higher in the rankings. Would be nice to score these for the kiddo.

    It's rare that I prefer the promo art, but I think I may like this better than the original.

    Wizards could put $100 bills in packs and people would complain about how they were folded.

    Same here, I much prefer the promo art. The FNM Pillar art is literally a huge pillar of fire that's right in your face. The AVR art is like Moses looking at the burning bush off in the distance.

    I prefer the AVR art personally. However, the art is not bad.

    This is one I will not mind giving to Yomako...unlike my FNM Evolving Wilds.

    Oh, the fridays I'll have to miss the drinking and the sleeping because of this card. Love it, entirely.

    (Give your LGS judge a hug. He deserves it.)

    Nothing. All I want is Heroes vs. Monsters spoilers.

    FNM promos are only ever common or uncommon.

    And why exactly we would have care if we would pick up a playable rare as FNM reward sometime? I wouldntn mind once in a while getting a 5 dollar card as reward.. Not expecting snapcaster mage or something similar but i would like to get something valueable saving me money from buying it..

    Nevertheless it is nice..Always FNM promos are nice.

    Isn't that true of basically every common/uncommon burn spell ever though?

    Pillar is a good choice, it's actually one of the harder commons to find simply due to demand.

    1) FNM promos are for uncommon cards at best, never rares or mythics.
    2) As far as value goes... you really haven't been paying attention, have you? Because if you had, you'd have noticed that they issued Dismember, Lingering Souls and Go For The Throat all within the past year.

    Good promo is good. I may pick up a playset if I want to go U/W/r Control.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    I approve... I want a set for red deck wins...

    Its odd the promo has Avacyn's collar on the staff but not the original.

    Cool choice for FNM though!

    WotC needs to break the "no rares or mythics" rule for Armada Wurm. Because if any card needed alternate art, it's that one. I mean, come on.

    I don't care if it becomes the rarest promo card on the face of the planet, I'll buy a playset at premium just so I don't have to look at that ridiculously bad art.

    ON TOPIC: I like the art on Pillar's FNM. I think I'll have to see it IRL, though to see if it's better than the original.

    Pretty good. Although I still think I'd like it better if the promos were things that would still have slight monetary value in the future rather than none.

    Well they want to make the promo a card that anyone can use... not just a good rare used in 1 deck. From what i can tell Pillar of Flame is one of most used cards in standard.

    I hate the reserved list.

    Mythic rares are fine.
