Titan's Revenge

It's a potentially reusable Blaze for one more mana. And any deck that can pump mana into X is probably packing enough high-end goodies to win a few Clashes, right?

Constructed- 3.5
Casual- 4.5
Limited- 4.9

Titan's Revenge

Just when you thought there was absolutely nothing left to do with an X spell, along comes something quite unusual and quite interesting. Those who have run the statistics tell me that you're not that likely to win any given clash, but I think in reality it's like Demonfire's hellbent ability: a neat extra for an already solid spell. You could try it in an established archetype like green-red midrange which has a fairly high curve anyway and thus an inbuilt higher chance of winning clashes, or make something based on stacking the top of your library with cards like Elvish Harbinger and Foresee.

Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 3/5

Titan's Revenge

If you can successfully clash this once you will likely win because 20 life isn't so hot after being Fireball'd twice (which is kind of ironic). However, I doubt in constructed this anyone will fire this is a sufficient amount to make a huge difference so this card ends up not being so hot after all (which is kind of ironic).

In casual, some person will use this to try to repeatedly deal 20 damage.

In limited, this is reusable removal that kills pretty much anything.

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 3.5/5

Thursday's card is Titan's Revenge. For two red mana and X more, you can deal x damage to target creature or player, plus the clash effect should you win will allow you to bring it back for more punishment. This is a definitely nice finisher for burn, a reusable Fireball type spell if you can get the clash effect. Clash is always nice because you always know what you are going to get next. Big spells like this love things like Cloudpost and Urzatron and this loves big spells like Giants for the clash.

In constructed, this card doesn’t seem to cut it. Red/green Mana Ramp is the only deck that could really put this card to use, and Bogardan Hellkite would probably be better anyway. In limited, this card is amazing. Whether as a big finisher or removal, this card is great.

- Constructed: 1
- Casual: 2
- Limited: 4
