Hazezon isn't a junk rare. He's on the reserved list, and sells for $30 a piece. He's a great EDH commander.

Aaron's Random Card Comment of the Day #5, 10/1/10
Nostalgia is what makes this card at all palatable to me. I have countless Chronicles versions of this doof filling up some box in my garage, but the Legends version still has some mystique to it. Yes, I have cast this guy. No, he wasn’t impressive, even to my less-savvy 1995-era self.

The way the Legends set introduced “gold” (multicolored) cards was interesting--they tied the weird mana costs to the brand-new creature type (that would later become a supertype) “Legend.” Each of those first gold cards had two significant drawbacks: they were harder to cast than normal cards, and there could only be one of each in play at a time… heck, for a long time there could only be one of each in your deck at a time! The modern designer/developer in me immediately wants to counteract those two drawbacks by making awesome cards, you know, like Doran, the Siege Tower and Dralnu, ... (see all)

Not that bad, although I wish there was a little more flavour behind this card...

Average, which for a legend from Legends, is as good as it gets. They must've thought "legendary" was a good thing back in those days. It's still a mostly-good set, but it has cards that have "since these early sets were designed by college students, we can assume this is a 4/2 for 0 mana." Also, they lock you into two colors; this poor chap locks you into green and white, which already have good damage prevention.

This card should have flavor text. These legends are supposed to be characters, but in those days, we had nothing to go by.

@Aaron_Forsythe
The reference to Captain Sisay is interesting, since an EDH deck of her is one of the few that would seriously consider playing this chap. At least in my opinion.

Legends doesn't get enough love.

I don't think most of the other Legends cards will get much Gatherer traffic, but this has an 'Aaron's Random Card Comment of the Day' on it, so I figure if I'm going to rant about Legends, I might actually be noticed on this one:


Legends was awesome. @bay_falconer, I think there is no greater divisive issue between Vorthos and Spike than what your comment said. "They must have thought being legendary was a good thing back in those days."

Being Legendary is the best thing that a Designer or Developer can put on a creature, hands down, bar nothing to Vorthoses. Because of that, hard-core Vorthos would prefer 1 copy of any given Legend from Legends in his deck than 4 copies of Squadron Hawk.

Normally, the idea that 'Spikes just want to win' and 'Vorthos is just a bad player' is not nearly close to the truth, but for Legends, well that may almost be the case. BUT! there is one major thing that Legends has that no other set will ever (likely) do:

I'd actually prefer Healing Salve to this!

At least he's not in 3 colors like most other Legends legends.
