Jiwari, the Earth Aflame
This card is an instant Hall of Famer for limited play. Yes, this card is better in the limited Environment than Arc-Slogger was last year or Kumano has been this year. Fireball on a stick (but only for non-flying creatures) is a grade A first pick of the HIGHEST ORDER. In constructed, this card could make the cut in certain decks (obviously decent in block constructed) and could be a sideboard card for controllish red decks of the future.


Jiwari, the Earth Aflame

Too bad it can't hit a player...it would be an insane card. Without that ability, it is relegated to the world of limited, where it admittedly can kick arse. If you can get Jiwari down and start firing at your opponent's creatures, good times. You should be able to gain board control fairly quickly. Or, for a ground pounder Wrath of God, you can Channel it. Channel is turning out to be better than advertised, and can be a nice, non-counterable ability in the right situation.

Constructed - 2.5
Casual - 3
Limited - 4.5
