How careful Wizards are about not reprinting this in sets near artifact blocks. Otherwise, entire decks would be ruined or made by 1Blue. Also, the flavor text rocks, telling players not to overextend on artifacts, and also alluding to how old this spell is.

Having this on my sideboard with Cunning Wish in my deck allows me to sleep at night.

Sorry, this card is just not the same without Hurkyl on it... :(

This card's beast in Glimpse of Nature affinity. It's also possible to hit with snapcaster pretty easily so it can still be agressive. It's more likely going to be used on yourself rather than the opponent. The later of the two options can still be useful though.

Play with Moxen, Solring, Mana Vault, Grim Monolith and Mana Crypt for shocking mana generation.

Hahahahaha good bye affinity...

Narrow yet versatile. Does that even make sense? It'll have to. A Vintage mainstay and oh-so hilarious against obnoxious artifact-based decks like Raffinity and Mindslaver lock. And a classic combo piece on top of that.

I prefer the old artwork, although the new one's still okay.

I generally use this card on my own artifacts and artifact creatures when someone tries to board wipe. With Reliquary Tower you don't have a maximum hand size. So bring on the Wrath of God Damnation or Hallowed Burial

Mycosynth Lattice + Hurkyl's Recall = game over

Incredible not only as a protector but as a combo piece. You can ramp insane mana with cards such as Mana Vault, Grim Monolith, Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, etc. Even cards such as Basalt Monolith work while producing net 0 - but allows for storm counters to finish with Swathstorm (Grapeshot + Pyromancer's Swath) or Tendrils of Agnoy, not necessarily with Yawgwin.
