Quote from Mergatroid_Jones »Is that you, Reckless Abandon?
Quote from Marek14 »See, this is the problem. You simply throw away nonsense too quickly. You do not recognize that nonsense has a time-tested place in game design.
Quote from noshadowkick »Heartfire is a WAY better Reckless Abandon. Instant speed trickery on effects like this can be busted.
Quote from silentstormraider »Not sure how Heartfire is a "slightly worse" Reckless Abandon.
I'll gladly take instant speed over sorcery speed at the cost of one more mana. Lets you use it in response to a board wipe or removal. Plus the added value of being able to sac a planeswalker is gravy.
Quote from EvincarCrovax »Heartfire is far better. As has been mentioned already sacrificing in response to removal can be very useful. 4 damage for two mana is still very good. I could see it used in a red aggro/burn deck of some sort.
Quote from Th3M4g1cM4n »So I've been waiting for a cheap red burn spell that can deal with Teferi, Time Raveler in one hit, and it seems like Heartfire may be it. I like it.
Quote from desruprot »Heartfire is eh, although it is an instant which helps it.
Quote from theMarc »PSA to everyone who keeps forgetting about the Reserved List:
You're on a website dedicated to talking about MtG. You're only a few keystrokes away from finding out what cards are on the Reserved List. You're also only a few keystrokes away from finding out why some cards on the Reserved List got foil printings in FtV, as Judge promos, or whatnot, as well as why that won't happen again. Stop doing this.

The one problem with that is, once he comes down, you can only use Heartfire when you could cast a sorcery. If he uses his -3, you won't need 4 damage to deal with it. If he uses his +1, he'll have 5 loyalty before you can act, so you'll still need a little more.
