This card reminds me of Kai Budde in 1999 :)

Cool flavour, I'd love to see more dragons associated with artifacts.

Doesn't actually look that dangerous until you encounter it on turn two or three when playing against Dragon Stompy.

Card ruined do the the forever "loved" Official Reprint Policy Reserved List. Gotta love it when Wizards ruins what could be great (ie. in M11 with Scars of Mirrodin)

Would do a good job in M11. Right before Scars of Mirrodin will be released.

I always wondered why dragons want treasure, must be a bling issue, like that covetous bird.

I think this is where the idea for Phylactery Lich came from.

Once again I ask: Why does this trigger during a resolution of a spell when Maro doesn't drigger during Wheel of Fortune?

@Continue: I don't think you realize how much of a difference that one red mana makes, especially splashing it into a green ramp deck and seeing a 6/5 flier on turn 3.

Also, @tavaritz: relevancy?

This is a triggered ability, Maro's is a state-based ability. State-based abilities are checked as priority is given to players, triggered abilities go on the stack as soon as the event happens.

May have worded that slightly off, but that's the general idea.

I.E. -You have this and you Polymorph your artifact creature (your only artifact.) Polymorph starts resolving and destroys your last artifact, this guy's ability goes on the stack. You finish resolving Polymorph and then go to this guy's ability. Whether or not you found an artifact card is no longer relevant; this guy put the ability on the stack:
"Sacrifice this creature." The ability is NOT "Sacrifice this creature if you have no artifacts", it's "When."

Because of all this you're stuck losing him if you EVER hit 0 artifacts.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
