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.
Quote from HammerAndSickledIn this standard format no one is ever going to pay the tribute, because there just aren't enough strong spells anymore. A two-mana discount on your Lightning Strike or Magma Jet is hardly busted, Burning Tree can already do that and it's fine.

Quote from TurboJusticeNone of those are playable period.
Quote from Stinky_JanglesI think Wizards got this card's rarity mixed up with Flame-Wreathed Phoenix.
Anyway, I think this card has some potential. I don't want to play a Spike Jester for 4, but against an unappealing board state, a free magma jet is nothing to scoff at. The possibility that you're running Toil/Trouble could potentially make this decision very difficult for your opponents as well, especially control players.
By the way, are there any rules buffs here who could tell me if fusing split cards is allowed with this? Even running a mono-red deck, you would still have the option of drawing two card with toil/trouble.
Quote from CaedereI'm going to say it. I gotta say it.
These are the best duals since the fetchlands.
Possibly better, but only time will tell with that.
Quote from BigGrizzy4/15/2013: If you cast a split card with fuse from your hand without paying its mana cost, you can choose to use its fuse ability and cast both halves without paying their mana costs.
Quote from RakathIt's pretty much a poker card. Unlike most Tributes where you know the options, this is one where you have no idea which one your opponent wants you to do.
Quote from dr. teeth I 'm a big fan of flavor, but I sure prefer the taste of bacon to buttholes.
Modern is a basket of kittens, and Wizards is a deranged hobo with a shotgun.
