"Overrated", in terms of flavor alone, speaks volumes.

Why they gotta be white citizens? There aint no brothers in this village?

Maybe Icatia was a multi-cultural place, the citizens could have been dwarves and humans and goats for all we know.

Why did Wizards not change this card with the Grand Creature Type Update?
"Townsfolk" was changed to "Human", yet this Citizen card were kept as it is and even new ones got printed?
That's not a creature type, being a citizen is rather a condition.

I couldn't disagree with you more, beowulf. The flavor alone is incredible, from the effect to the cost to the art to the flavor text to the relevancy this card has within its own set and block. The cost is a little high, but you're comparing it to cards now; that's a huge fallacy, considering where the game is now and where it was when this was new. The citizen deal makes sense to me, as well, and I can see an argument for why it wasn't changed in the grand creature type. I think that adding "Human Citizen" might have been an okay idea, but then again, it would ruin the flavor of this card, which is very potent and (for me) worth keeping the integrity of the original printing.

Yes, I'm a major Vorthos, but that's what appeals to me about Magic in the first place. As such, cards like this just set my brain whirling with stories, lore, myths and customs that these Icatians might have had in their day.

This is honestly my favorite Magic the Gathering card ever produced. Quality doesn't matter when it comes to novelty like this. :

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
