Erik's Random card 6/6/2011
I designed Master's Edition IV. I was also on the development team, which was led by Tom LaPille.

I was trying to give a feel of some of the old nostalgic cards. Powerful color hate was part of that. Magic used to have very powerful color hate cards that could quickly decide whole games. We don't tend to print cards like that any more. Why not? Most people find the game less fun when "Gloom" hits the table. The game goes on, but one player doesn't do anything. However Master's Edition is "opt in." If you want to experience how cards like this work, you can do it. If you hate stuff like this, you can play with other sets, or other formats.

A lot of people draft these sets; it's how most packs are opened (they are only for Magic Online). If this type of card is uncommon, roughly one person has it every draft, probably in their sideboard. It could actually be a "shy away from heavy green in draft" type of card. So I put this type of card at rare.... (see all)

This card had my favorite art when I was playing MTG as a kid.
That was back in the day when I used to run cards because I liked the art...

OK, I never really had a physical copy of this, but it would be in my deck when I played the MTG video game, and I'd always be happy to see it come up, even though it's a very situational card. (As in, only useful if your opponent is green.)
