I'm partial to Thrive, personally.

The first article actually mentioned to me was the one I wrote about my Masques block Thrive deck.

If only my matchups had bee better, I could've won that thing! (as it goes... well, so it goes.)

Out of the X burn spells I'm partial to Rolling Thunder, I'm not sure if that's the name of the card I'm thinking of but it's the one that you can distribute the damage any way you want without paying for additional targets but costs an extra red mana.

Out of all of the X spells I'd probably have to say either Stroke of Genius or Drain Life.

Stroke of Genius is the best.

I miss Rolling Thunder terribly...

Stroke of Genius is the best, Rolling Thunder is my favorite for multiplayer utility, Illuminate is simply the coolest X spell ever printed. Death Grasp ain't so bad either.

Ooh, Mind Twist, I forgot about that. I don't know which is better, but I prefer to do the Twist.

TICM, you're a pimp for playing Dregs of Sorrow, one of my all-time favortie cards. I can't believe I forgot it.

Mind Twist, should read

Target player discards X cards at random. As an additional cost to Mind Twist you must prepare yourself for the beating of your life.

Ok. Spell Blast is a better answer. I admit defeat.

How about... Meteor Storm!
Double the X-ness!

Dude, when I started playing, my first starter had a Meteor Storm in it and I thought it doubled the mana. So 6 mana does 10 damage, divided however you like. That card was God!:)

you mean Meteor Shower, which would suck compared to Rolling Thunder, if not for its Jaya Ballard quote :D

Gack! Now, not only am I an idiot that can't understand a card, I'm an idiot that can't understand the wrong card.
