Soulfire Grand Master

This card is nuts. Nuts, nuts, nuts. It’s nutty. Good gravy is this nutty.

Do you think this was originally templated as a Legend until they realized people would give Blasphemous Act lifelink and get beaten to death by their EDH playgroup? I can’t say. I do like that we’re seeing a lot of creatures with the activation of the Khans’ other colors.

There isn’t much to say about this card that hasn’t been said by the labored breathing of burn players all over. Gain 6 off of a Lightning Helix and put it back in your hand. Cute. Give Stoke the Flames lifelink. Dirty. This card is very good, but very fragile.

Want a card to compare this to? How about Pain Seer? I haven’t seen preorder pricing for this yet, but this is likely to presell for way too much money. I’m not a buyer over $10 on this, and I bet it goes above that. Bust these from packs and out them before people come to their senses. Cards like this are the reason it’s profitable to presell cards. Do I think this card is nuts? Yes. I love it. But let’s be real – this is probably overrated right now, no matter how many times you buy a Time Warp back.
