Aaron’s Random Card Comment of the Day #47, 12/9/10

Like Lightning Elemental, Earthquake is a card that would likely be in my “perfect Core Set” that I’d want to put in a time capsule. Unlike Lightning Elemental, Earthquake has a huge impact on Standard environments that it’s in, so it sees print less often these days as we like decks full of little ground creatures to be good sometimes. There’s probably some good reason why we’re okay with Wrath of God/Day of Judgment being more or less perpetually in print but we modulate Earthquake, but I don’t know that I’ve ever actually thought it through. I just remember hearing early on in my career that “Earthquake isn’t a card we want around all the time,” and that made sense to me on some level without having a bunch of explanation behind it.

The card was in print continually from its inception in Alpha all the way through Seventh Edition,... (see all)

Earthquake vs. Wrath makes sense; Wrath kills everything, but Earthquake will usually kill weenies.
