Fiery Gambit - Another random rare flipping card. At least this one is almost useful. Paired up with something that lets you reflip, and it just might get very interesting. 

By the way... we could use your help!! We just posted our New Website for Shuffle & Cut Games, and it would be great if some of you could drop in and give it a test run.  The Strategy and Search features are not active yet, but we're working on them.  Please send any bug reports to:  Thanks, everyone!!

Constructed: 3
Limited: 3

The obligatoiry coin flip card of the set. I had to actually help someone through playing this this past weekend, and unfortunately, he won the first 2 flips and chose to stop rather than going for it all. In constucted, outside of your casual Chance Encounter deck, this won't see much play.
In limited, it is coniditional removal. I doubt I would go past the first flip, unless my opponent was on the ropes (at 8 or less life) if I hit the second flip (putting him at 2 or less). It would really depend on if the card pool I was playing had enough removal. I wouldn't want to run this, but would if I was light on removal.
Constucted: 1.25
Limited: 2.25

They really want you to play with coinflipping cards apparently, because
those are some big rewards.  Plus the card that lets you flip two for each 1
coin,  and this -may- even see some constructed play.  Hard to set a value
on a card that will do what you want it to less than 50% of the time though.
constructed 2.4
limited 2.9


Fiery Gambit is the first card with coin flipping that may be of some use. Normally randomness is bad but even 1 flip is decent, 2 is great, 3 is pushing your luck. Maybe flips still aren't so good. . .

Constructed - Potentially powerful but randomness is bad - 1.95

Limited - Creature removal at 1 flip may be worth it - 2.10
