Lightning Bolt

Lightning Bolt
When you talk about non-Standard red aggro decks, this card will always be a staple. It's pretty much the quickest and cheapest way to deal your opponent a good chunk of damage (15% of a regular life total), although there are some possible exceptions (Galvanic Blast in very select scenarios, Mana Clash 6.25% of the time (assuming you don't want to take damage), and Firestorm in a 4+ player game or if there are 2 creatures on the field). Still, even though there are alternatives, this card will probably always remain the top red aggro starter but we never know what WotC might do in the next set.

Pros: 3 damage to any target for 1 damage at Instant speed
Cons: None
Rating: 5/5
