one sided pyrostatic pillar now exists. doesn't even care about cmc.
Needs a “draw a card” tacked on
@blindtherapy The card feels like a pyroblast to me.

@botvinik How so? The two cards have nothing in common other than being red spells?
They are red spells that hate the blue spells. They shine vs combo and cantrip decks and wane everywhere else. If I were looking to swap something with this the first place I would look is a pyro. This is a bit evocative rather than explanatory for which I apologize but it's more of a feeling than a thought so this seems the best way to try and get it across.

@botvinik There are a non 0 number of decks this affects that are not specifically blue decks. Looking at the deck by color as opposed to archetype in vintage is a lacking evaluation strategy to be honest.
Getting this down early against shops can yield a lot of damage on that first turn. Likewise survival decks cast a lot of free madness stuff that all trigger this.
My biggest question about this card is honestly is it actually better than pillar? Generally speaking when you play pillar you do not care about the self damage so this being one sided may not matter much in many matches, but pyro can potentially hit every spell, not just the ones after the first, and is not a targeted card. Pillar does not see much play so if this card is questionably better than pillar it would be hard to imagine it seeing much play.
