Hell's Thunder
I remember wondering once, many years ago, why Ball Lightning didn't have flying. After all, lightning came from the sky, and here was a creature made entirely of lightning. Apparently Wizards read my mind, and designed Hell's Thunder. I really like that it has to be destroyed more than once, and represents eight damage in one card - compare Call of the Herd and Firebolt. This should be a fine addition to constructed burn decks, which will think of it as either a pseudo-Char with flashback or "Demigod Lite."
Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 2/5

Hell's Thunder


Constructed: It is 4 damage for 2 red and 1 colorless. And for the late game for another 4 damage. It should see some play for Red decks in Standard, Block it should be great to use.


Casual: Elementals has so many good cards it is hard to chose what to use. I would use this one for sure.


Limited: Really good card. All of the good red cards requires you to go heavy red. But in a draft you could make a good mono red deck, if the cards are available.


Over a okay creature for any burn deck. The Unearth ability has some good plays to be explored.


Constructed: 3

Casual: 2

Limited: 4
