Take that, Faeries! I just wiped the board of
your little guys at instant speed! And you can't
counter it! Only my 4/4 remains! Muhahahaha!
Friday - Volcanic Fallout
One of the breakout cards of Conflux, as many
people expected. This gives any deck that can
produce double red an answer to Faeries, the
dominant deck of the last year. It can also
sweep the board of weenies against decks like
R/W and B/W, and it even slaps them for 2 damage
in the process. This is better than Pyroclasm in
pretty much every way, and is one of the reasons
why 5-color control was able to perform so well
this past weekend. If you're running red in
standard, you should be running at least a
couple of these main or sided. Just watch out,
because cards like Burrenton Forge-Tender can
still stop it.
In limited, uncounterable board control can
swing the game in your favor. I'd definitely
play this if I felt like I could support the
Constructed - 4
Casual - 3
Limited - 4
By their own admission, Wizards of the Coast's
R&D designs most cards with Standard in mind.
Nowhere is that more apparent than Volcanic
Fallout (and its Conflux print-run-mate
Scattershot Archer) - an instant, uncounterable
global damage source attacks all three of the
Faerie deck's vulnerabilities simultaneously.
It's a very strong card, much better in some
situations than core set staple Pyroclasm. I
wonder how it feels when, like Faeries now or
Dragonstorm and Affinity before it, your
favorite Standard deck is one that R&D
officially shows its distaste for in such a
for just over 5 years
-Playing MTG for just over 10
Unstoppable pyroclasm/shock combo. Love it. Love
it. Love it. This card will see play and lots of
it. Many decks want the early board cleared.
Yeah, Yeah...it can be countered. What can't?
This card has rock the Standard scene right out
of the starting blocks. Poor little Faeries. It
will sit in the shadow of Path to Exile for
awhile. It help 5cc deck win PT Kyoto. So it
might get up there with Path to Exile.
2 damage at instant speed is great.
This a great burn card for limited. Would pick
it high and even hate draft it to. Good thing it
is a uncommon.
Overall a great addition to red burn's list.
