Van Lunen always seems to be the only writer willing to note a preview card's faults as well as its strengths. That said, this card does indeed make some already terrifying cards like Boros Charm utterly ridiculous. If it doesn't have a home in Standard, someone better build one for it.
I'm kind of surprised that you ignored the burn deck that already exists in the format. Seems like this is the perfect card for Boros Burn - http://mtgtop8.com/event?e=6306&d=236280
