    Relevant standard card with better art. Not the best, but better than a few we've gotten
    Many props to DarkNightCavalier over @ Heroes of the Plane Studios for awesome sig.

    The art is nice, but too similar to the current art if you ask me.
  • #4
    Could have been a much worse card so no complaint there. Not really fond of this art. Maybe it will "pop" on a foil but it really doesn't grab me.
  • #5
    any translation on the flavor text?

    XD that matters to me

    Very awesome art, but everyone and their mother already have a playset or two of this card...

    could be worse. if i remember correctly, the next few months are already known, so i guess no modern playables? and by playables, i mean fringe stuff.

    Say what, where's my serum vision FNM? Hang on a minute, was Wikipedia wrong about this? We aren't getting a Snapcaster Mage or Force of Will FNM card?

    I actually l,e the artwork on this, I would like to have seen a galvanic blast one though.

    It's nice. I'm assuming that this card will be in Standard for a couple more years, so it's nice to see a promo of it I guess.

    To be fair, this is true for all FNM promos. They always print commons and uncommons.

    Consider me in the minority. I was actually hoping for Modern cards, especially the "rumored" Sleight of Hand. You know, especially since January will be the first month that Modern hits FNM. A slightly wasted opportunity imho. Still... could be worse!
    Check out some good music!

    So it's the exact same as the M13 edition.

    This is a great promo is you play FNM in Standard, but useless everywhere Lightning Bolt is legal.

    The art is only slightly better than normal version.
    Still, I'll probably end of getting it for my Pauper Cube. Better than me not using it at all.

    That's a pretty good promo of for January.

    Not bad, but not really one I'll work hard to get.

    Nice, my RDW deck needs a little bling, my foil kamigawa mountains are a bit lonely.

    I like that art a lot, the choice of the card is a little suspect I suppose, but not awful either.

    They are always the same flavour text as the most recent versions. Check Gitaxian Probe and Dismember.

    Smart move by Wizards, finally
    Yeah. The most profitable portion of the largest toy company in the world had clearly been making terrible decisions the last two years.

    What I don't like about it is that it further suggests that we won't see any Lightning Bolts in standard any time soon. I already know that Wizards doesn't like lightning bolt because it makes all other burn spells look bad, but a red mage can dream... can't he?

    Lightning Bolt was in Standard for two core sets. It won't be back for awhile, especially given Snapcaster Mage's existence in the format. Standard has not had Lightning Bolt in it before, just like one-drop white removal spells. WoTC doesn't want every Standard season to look the same, so they try to mix things up a bit. I'm sure Bolt will come back years from now, just not any time soon.

    Standard playable foil alt art cards! You won't hear me complaining, will get a playset!

    It is a red card with nice art. That is all I ask and thats what they have given. Thank you, Wizards of the Coast. Thank you.
