Why does Wizards insist on reprinting Hill Giant over and over again except under new aliases?

Guys. Look at the flavor text. "None of which have changed them one bit."
It's so ancient, it is meant to be judged by 1993 standards. That's why it sucks. Because it should have been a standard vanilla card for the early days of Magic, not a crappy creature for 2010's Magic.

@ZEvilMustache
In the Russian name for the card, the Cyrillic letter Ge is used, which in Russian represents a hard G as in the English word "log."
That being said, is the emphasis on the first or the second syllable?

Vanilla or not, I think the REAL question here is whether to pronounce the J as in "Log" or "Magic." I'm all for the second, as I find the first unpronounceable. I'm sure we'll all be arguing about this for next two years.

"I attack with my Lagac Lizard."

"You're playing that junk?"

"Um, you were supposed to criticize my pronunciation..."

This card is epic! I have used it in every deck I've ever made:
My RedDeckLoses
My 500 Memnite/4 Mountain/ Lagac Lizard deck
My Yugioh Divine deck
My Monopoly Chance Card deck
My UNO deck
10/5 Stars, Black Lotus! I...
This is the wrong forum, right?

Cardcypher, commons are for limited. Lord of Shatterskull Pass and other bottom-of-the-barrel rares are for your unremarkable kitchen table deck.
Maybe if you were rating it down saying something like, "a copy of hill giant, a baseline card, -1 star for being printed in a limited environment in which a typical aggro deck is less viable than usual," you would have a point, but as things stand it's painfully clear you have no idea what you're talking about.

"There is never enough vanilla creatures."
"There is"
"So there is never enough Hill Giants."
"..."

This is exactly what can explain how red commons work at most.... sadly.

Go away, Hill Giant! Can't you see that nobody likes you? Dressing up as a minotaur or a lizard won't help!
