They'd better not be rare when they come online.

The original trash rare cycle! Everybody had a huge stack of Lace's amongst their stack of tradable rares until I eventually realized this plus Blue Elemental Blast was a wonderful combo :P (and other similar tricks like Black Knight plus Purelace /mwahahahaha)

I got this card as a rare once in a 4th Ed pack as a kid, and I remember being so ticked off, lol.

The most useless cycle ever printed, especially since they were rares...They saw some play but never in serious decks...

"They are too narrow to be uncommon. Wouldn't work in a draft."

The laces were printed long before Limited formats were invented. This won't explain away their questionable rarity.

Should have been uncommon. I'd like to see these reprinted. As uncommons.

Should allow you to draw a card after you have played the spell.

Cantrip type cards always make effects like this that would normaly give you card disadvantage for not much gain much more appealing.

They are too narrow to be uncommon. Wouldn't work in a draft.

Prismatic Lace is a turn in the right direction, but still too little.

How about this:

Universal Lace


Target permanent becomes the color or colors of your choice. (This effect lasts indefinitely.)

Let's remember again: Vorthos was the main audience intended when the game came out, and they had no real reason to imagine Spike's existence (they didn't know the game would be so popular, remember?). The reason the laces are rare is simply because they have, by the original set's lights, a VERY strange ability. Changing a spell or permanent's color is, well, extremely meta, in the same fashion as Sleight of Mind and Magical Hack. Putting them in rare can be thought of as an attempt to ensure that none of the nuts and bolts--the cards you DID find at common and uncommon--would be drowned out by the arcane oddballs.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
