    so 7 mana for sweltering suns and a 6/6. looks like this will be just another limited bomb :(

    • DJ Pad

      No kidding, at least give it haste or something.

  • Gregory Walter

    Oh hey! Hellions are on this plane! :D

    • jaya

      Too bad they still sux, still got amazing art. But thats a recurring problem with red overall.

  • Giuseppe Rizzo

    Combo: Maw of Chaos + Cloudshift imprinted on Isochron Scepter, in a Boros Burn Deck.
    Then, just imagine adding also Overwhelming Splendor.

    • DJ Pad

      All those boros burn decks that run 7 drops.

      • Giuseppe Rizzo

        that is right, indeed. adding extraplanar lens will give the mana.

        • DJ Pad

          Are you referring to EDH? Because this card has zero potential anywhere else (and probably little potential there either). It’s worse than Crater hellion in most cases.

          • Giuseppe Rizzo

            EDH or casual!

          • jaya

            I think you mean casual EDH and very very casual casual. Boderline playing land-pass.

          • Robert FakeLastName

            azami is kinda draw-land-go.

  • Absinthman

    Flavor: “Sandwurms are not at the top of the food chain.”

    • Han Solo II

      really? Because that seems ironic when it can’t deal with them

      • jaya

        Its always been like this hellions have sucha strong lore behind but end up always suxing in card, except few exceptions.
        Still badass flavor.

    • KILLEN

      This translation is wrong!

      It says: “The food chain does not end with sandworms”

      • Absinthman

        My translation is not wrong. It’s just not literal. Foods chain ends with an apex predator at its top. It’s just another way to put it. I’m just putting a bit of creativity in the way I say it. It’s flavor text after all.

        • Mark Pilzer

          But that still isn’t the actual flavor text

          • Absinthman

            Of course it’s not. Not sure what your point is.

          • Hedronal

            That if you’re translating the flavor text, either take it literally or clearly say you didn’t in the original translation post.

          • Happy The Cat

            literal means something a bit different here, if you google Literal, it’s definition 2 “(of a translation) representing the exact words of the original text.” basically what it means is the difference between “Sandwurms are not at the top of the food chain” and “The food chain does not end with sandworms” both of them MEAN close to the same thing, however the subject and the object of these translations have been swapped. this is common and is due to differences in Russian and English words/sentence structure.

          • Hedronal

            The point is still, if you’re translating flavor text, close to the same isn’t going to be enough for many on the net.

  • MTG fan

    Is it weird that I want to try to use this in Standard? 4 Chandra Torch of Defiance and 4 of these seems really reasonable to ramp into.

    • AMP1212

      Good luck with that mate. I’d love for it to work, but it’s just way to shotty. You’d need to hit every land drop, and have amazing draws.

      • MTG fan

        True.

  • Shagoth

    Know, limited BS because boardwalk, but this feels like such a basic, generic, and used design that it feels uncommon or even common. This feels like if they would make a hellion tribe in a set, than this would be the presentative common.

  • Nanya

    If it was one mana less it would at least be almost as good as Inferno Titan.

  • Happy The Cat

    oh, hey Thunder Dragon, you look a lot worse when you are outside of the tribe.

  • Hedronal

    Is that a golden hellion?

    • Will

      No…it is THE Golden Hellion!

      • Robert FakeLastName

        it would have to be legendary for that to work.

  • Nelson Chandra

    hm
    is there some kinda red ramp deck that wants this as a board reset?

  • Nyos

    Hellions make me sad. Badass art… killer flavor… sucky card :/

    • jaya

      Isnt it always like that tho, its hellions and drakes, they make me QQ, always amazing art and flavor test and then sux 95% of time.
      Whats most amusing is this is a rare…trololololol wizards pls.

    • Bostorket

      Yeah. If it’d been the full 6 it could make for a great room clearer.

    • Will

      Yhea, the art alone made me :0
      Then I looked at the card and began to cry a little on the inside…
      Seven mana in red – and not even with haste

      …But, that art man, that art!

  • Ryuji Nichol Pabila

    What’s with the high cmc red cards? Unless they plan to print red ramp spells in future sets they’re borderlining on sabotage here

  • Chaospyke

    “The food chain doesn’t end with the sandwurms”

    Are ya sure? Cuz ya just got straight outclassed by a green uncommon wurm.

  • AMP1212

    Should have been an 8/6 with trample…
