[edit] Strategy

It is generally a good idea to play this card when your opponent has a massive monster bearing down on you (such as Deathwing). A good counter strategy is to send in a weak minion in first to burn the trap before you attack with your massive monster.

[edit] Lore

Surprisingly, this is not a mage ability in World of Warcraft. The only character with an ability of this name in WoW is a Bound Zephyr in the Bastion of Twilight, where it deals a respectable amount of damage and causing the afflicted player's armor to not protect them for ten seconds.

[edit] Trivia

This card's art depicts a mace-wielding draenei mage summoning fire against a tauren. This is odd as mages do not traditionally wield maces, and are in fact unable to equip them in World of Warcraft, the game upon which the art was originally based.
