Magma Spray
It's hard to believe sometimes that Magma Spray has only been in four sets. It feels like it's become a staple, and it's rarely been overshadowed by other direct damage spells - red doesn't have many counters to graveyard-centric strategies without using artifacts or going to other colors, and that alone basically guarantees it a place in almost any format. While I'm glad that the designers have started giving red access to more styles of spell effects and revisiting the Wheel of Fortune concept, I do think there is still a place for burn variants in every set, and Magma Spray is a good one to have around.
