They didn't really 'errata-ed in tapping'.
It's a "Mono Artifact" which does indeed require tapping it to use it's ability.
In the old days, Artifacts were Mono (tap to use) , Poly (doesn't tap, but has an activation), or Continuous (always on effect). In the Revised set, they changed the terminology and added the 'tap symbol'.

Hell, the name is so well known, even other games call these decks "mill" decks. I didn't know why until I saw this card :)

The iconic "mill" card. Love it or hate it, you still respect it.

It defined an entire victory condition - "milling."

Not too powerful, but it was epic for its time, if for no other reason than it got folks thinking about other ways to win the game.

I played this when no on in my play circle (including me) knew about Mono Artifacts. I would deck people regularly, rofl. Was one of my favorite cards :)

More than one mage was driven insane by how this card never changed its flavor text.

The namesake of an entire strategy, Milling, this card rarely sees play in its own archetype...

This card would be so much better if they hadn't errata-ed in tapping.

With all the mill cards that exist today, it's amusing to see the strategy's humble beginnings.

Anybody else notice how with R&D's Secret Lair you can put your opponent's cards in your graveyard or vice versa?
