Burn has always had a special place in the world of Magic removal. Swords to Plowshares can kill any creature, but Lightning Bolt can potentially kill any opponent. This facet has always put red in an aggressive place all its own, where its spells both clear the way for attackers and eat away those last few life points. But suppose red didn't stand alone in this regard: how would the other colors achieve the same goals?

Assignment:
- Create a mono-color, noncreature card that isn't red.
- It should be of common or uncommon rarity.
- It should be a removal or pseudo-removal spell.
- It should also hinder the opponent in some direct fashion. You can go the either route (Lightning Bolt) or the coupled route (Searing Blaze). Something like Doomfall is allowed.
- The goal is to make something like Lightning Bolt outside of red. You can limit yourself however much you want in this regard; as long as I can see how you're attempting to achieve this goal, you're good.

Contest will end some time in the wee hours of Saturday morning.

Return target non-land permanent and all spells that shares the same name with it to their owner's hand.
Then, if two or more cards are returned this way, draw a card.

The owner of target creature shuffles it with any number of cards from the top of their library, then puts the top X cards of their library into their graveyard, then draws a card.
The technology isn't all there yet.

Target opponent reveals their hand. You choose a land card from it. Put it on the battlefield tapped under your control.

Doesn't satisfy the criteria.

Well, that puts you ahead of Cato in my book. Probably it's better than everyone's entry, but it's only strictly better than Cato's.
