"Inferno Tempest" works extremely well with "Soul Absorption" - you will gain 500 Life Points for every card removed from play - easily making up for the large amount of life points lost in order to activate the effect of this card.
This card is broken. First time i got it to activate it removed 3 cards from my opponents deck and 4 cards from his graveyard and then 2 cards from my deck and 3 cards from my graveyard wtf there were still cards left in both our decks and graveyards! Doesn't it say remove ALL?? Super confusing
Yeah you had something going on there until you chose a skill that does no damage to you, I think it would (maybe) work if you put lava golem on their side and then had them crash it into you. Thats probably the most "consistent" way, but its still not great if you are already below 3000 health (which is likely if you're playing a deck like this)...
I think this card has some potential there. For example, buff enemy weak card (1500+1500) once while you have more powerful monster in hand. Clear them all in deck/graveyard. No one can stop you. Mask/something else also works. You just hide your monster card in hand to use next turn.
