For five mana, it sends absurd
amounts of damage hurtling at your opponent.The fact that it has to be killed twice
makes it better than Ball Lightning.If it gets blocked the first time, it
even comes back untapped so it could
theoretically block.So most likely it'll kill two of your
opponent's creatures and force through some
damage on one card.Not that bad!
Thursday - Thunderblust
Ball Lightning, but a bit more expensive and
initially without the trample. He doesn't
sacrifice himself, though, so that's nice. The
first hit might get in for 7 since he'll catch
your opponent by surprise, but after that he'll
just get chump blocked and you get a 6/1
trampler, which is still good. Not having
trample from the get-go kind of hurts, though. A
good card, but I think it's too slow at five
In limited, he'll just get chumped and killed,
although he'll get through for damage with the
trample. I'd rather spend five mana on a
creature with a bigger butt, though.
Constructed - 2.5
Casual - 3
Limited - 2
Thunderblust is much more expensive than many
recent Ball Lightning variants, but you get a
lot of extra ability (and even subtlety!) for
the cost. I prefer my Ball Lightning variants to
have inbuilt trample, but with this character
you're almost assured to either take out either
two creatures and a couple of your opponent's
life points, or, if the table is empty, more
than half your opponent's life total before they
can get rid of it for good.
Elemental have drop under the radar lately. This
dude will be great to drop with Incandescent
Elementals are not that popular around my parts.
But a 7/2 haste for only 5 mana is not bad for
any casual red deck.
I really like the persist creatures for any
draft or sealed deck. The second chance with
your creatures create a great advantage for you.
There is only so much removal that is available.
This little dude will be high on my pick list.
Overall a cool Elemental for its cost. The haste
and then persist with trample makes him a real
beat down machine.
