I think they reprinted it because the Artist's name was misprinted originally.

Drop Relic of Progenitus and a Leyline of the Void, and you can wall a Tarmogoyf with this classic beast all day.

I wouldn't say that 1 power counts as "greete strengthe", no sir.

great? i think not. cheap? never.
there are also 1/2 one-drops - even with profitable abilities, and seriously by far more than enough white 2/2 weenies at exactly that cost of 1White, most often with useful abilities on top of that.

@Mode: :D

Also, Chaucer flavor text is worth a few stars.

Nice flavor text.

For the record, it was reprinted in order to drive home that no, the past was NOT strictly Mox gems, Mana Drain, Channel, etc. As for its existence in the first place, remember that at the time The Dark came out, the Spike demographic was only just barely beginning to be recognized, compared to the Timmy, Johnny, and Vorthos demographics (not under those names, admittedly...). This was for the Vorthos set.

By the way, it isn't STRICTLY superior to Repentant Blacksmith, at least not if you're playing a red-white deck with things like Giant Strength or Firebreathing (remember, well before Spike was recognized)...
