A Hairless Thoctar contest, Alara Part 4; Shriek of Flame

First we went to Bant and met Lisha.
Then we went to Esper and met Crucius.
After that, we went to Grixis to avoid the Bone Heaps.
Next stop; Jund, to witness the Shriek of Flame.

"Dragons don't go peacefully into death. When an ancient has become to feeble to defend its territory, it goes out with a bang. In a ritual known as the Shriek of Flame, a dragon finds an unstable volcano, flies high above the crater, then plunges into a shrieking death-dive straight into the magma. A fiery cataclysm erupts on impact, and many lowland groups believe that all volcanic eruptions are the result of the death of a dragon."

Your mission, should you choose to accept it (and really, why wouldn't you) is to design a card that you feel captures the flavor of a Shriek of Flame.

DESIGN GUIDELINES
1. Your card must be red. It may be any other colors in addition to red.
1b. Your card is allowed to use non-Jund colors. The Shriek of Flame isn't a character or phenomenon exclusive to pre-Conflux Alara, so if you want to design a card that might take place in a post-Conflux world, you may do so should you desire.
2. Your card must involve dragons in some way, if not in mechanics, than in flavor.

Given the description of Shriek of Flame, I would encourage you to design an instant or sorcery, though if you feel you can somehow design an enchantment or land or creature that captures the feel, you may do so at your own peril. I will tease you relentlessly if your design is off the mark th, so beware. D:<

CONTEST RULES
1. You have two days to design.
2. You can only enter once.
3. You may change your design any time before the deadline.

If you have any further questions, feel fry to ask.
Good luck and have fun!

As an additional cost to cast Shriek of Flame, sacrifice a creature. Shriek of Flame deals damage equal to that creature's power to each creature and player.
If you sacrifice a dragon this way, deal twice as much damage and this damage can't be prevented.

HairlessThoctar, but I feel bad because this design was pretty apparent, and you always get the first design in. A lot of people went in a similar path to you, but in the end your was the cleanest and probably most flavorful. Still, a fun card, Super Fling Away!

Oh, and Pablo totally broke the rules first, and then Imi half-broke the rules, and then me. So I should share that finger wag.

It's a hard decision between Imi and vlord, but I guess I only get one vote Both cards are flavorful and mechanically interesting.

vlord
+ It partially works around the inherent shortcomings of enchantments.
+ Equally effective on either your creatures or your opponent's.
-  No change to board state until the enchanted creature dies.

Imidazoline
+ Dragoncycling? Yes please.
+ Add is just the kind of ability that looks too good to print, but actually works.
-  Everyone and their mother would combo this with Dragon Hatchling, and it's already pretty difficult to be creative with a dragon deck.

I ended up selecting vlord's card because it just grabbed me better. There's something about that card that makes me need to make it work in a deck, regardless of how well it might actually play.

Imi, I realize that my reason for selecting vlord's card over yours is a personal one. But I really can't find anything mechanically wrong with your card! I hope it's ok that I decided to listen to my gut rather than base my vote on logic here.
voting is like innately personal; it's a personal decision, it's not more or less valid depending on why you did it

vlord's is nice but it doesn't work; the Aura is put into the graveyard before the triggered ability resolves

all the cards are very similar though, so i'm just going to vote for vlord 
vlord's is nice but it doesn't work; the Aura is put into the graveyard before the triggered ability resolves

Should I word it like Reins of the Vinesteed or Necrotic Plague?

"When enchanted creature dies, return ~ from your graveyard to the battlefield as a Mountain with ': This mountain deals one damage to each creature and each player'."

Is that any better?

Thanks for the votes guys.
Yeah, the new text would work. I decided to ignore the rules issue because the intent was clear.
