It's a 5/2 with maybe haste for 3R. Yeah, it firebreathes, but if Molten Sentry didn't catch on, I don't see this going anywhere. Granted, it's a relevant creature type, but there's better Elementals and better Warriors for your money. With two toughness, all this will do is kill whomever your opponent decides to block it with. And since Warren Weirding already gave us a cheaper "target player sacrifices a creature" card, I'm not interested.

Constructed- 1.5
Casual- 2
Limited- 1.7

The Firebrand looks like a pretty good play to follow an opposing board sweeper, when you will (in a properly constructed deck) have Warriors in your graveyard. In the old days, getting hit by Ball Lightning was basically game over because of all the burn spells you knew the red deck had; Vengeful Firebrand only does one point less damage and can be inflated if you have spare mana. I think this card is only waiting for its moment.

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

Again, this is a splashable card. Anything that has haste can be helpful and there are not many option for this in block constructed. A 5/2 surprise hit is not too bad. However, cards like blistering firecat and Solifuge were extra good because a simple shock or terror could not stop the surprise hit. As a result, I doubt this will see much effective play.

Constructed: 2
Casual: 3
Limited: 2
