Demonfire - Dissension. Rare
XR: Sorcery
Demonfire deals X damage to target creature or player. If a creature dealt damage this way would be put into a graveyard this turn, remove it from the game instead.
Hellbent - If you have no cards in hand, Demonfire can't be countered by spells or abilities and the damage can't be prevented.


I would like to note that this is the new "blaze" FTW. Note that this card removes the creature card from the game, this says hi to the kamigawa dragons. Next, the hellbent ability gives an added bonus, giving a certain feeling of hitting. Maybe the combo is now called Lotus, Channel, Demonfire? possibly.

The Duck's Rating: 3/5

I still think Lotus, Channel, Fireball sounds best...

Anyways, as said, this is just a better blaze.

Yay?

Seriously. I said this before somewhere (I think), that if you're stupid enough to throw this at them to win, and walk into a counterspell, then you deserve to get that countered.

Anyways, still is a potential game wining card, etc etc, works against rakdos theme of low cost spells to empty hand cause you want this to be huge, etc.

I dont know what to rate this. I'll figure it out when I find where I put that quote..

I already reviewed this card, and I will give it the same 4/5 rating as before. I'm not reposting my rant.

Poor klducks.....Man, no wonder he didn't want to review Dissension cards till they were released.....

3.5/5, as before, and I'm too lazy to even copy and paste my rant. <_< Rar.

I erm... Say Fireball is slightly better for the ability to split damage, which in my opinion is slightly more versatile than Hellbent.
