    Why is this card so darn awful.

    • Alexandre Donnart

      The worst part is that we still have Essence Extraction in Standard and we just got Final Reward as a common in Limited. Why this ?

      • Dave

        Essence Extraction only hits creatures, though. Not that this is good but it could fit in some janky RB burn deck with the cost reducing Amulet and that card-draw-or-life-spell.

        • Alexandre Donnart

          And why would you play a 5 mana Lightning Helix in a Constructed deck, even a janky one ? Nah. Kameenook is right, this card is just “so darn awful”.

          • Dave

            I just said cost-reducing but okay.

      • Kameenook

        And even when not considering something like Essence Extraction you’ve got Lightning Helix for only two mana, two COLORS of mana, and this has to cost three more than that ? We couldn’t even get it for four ? Or for 3 ? just awful

    …this’d be fine as a common y’know, but alright.

  • Grant Jacobson

    hey you can use this card to target yourself, so you could spend 5 mana doing nothing but contemplating why in the name of WOTC did you put such a worthless card in your deck…if you want to that is.

    Art looks like Inquisition of Kozilek from a different angle.
