It tells you something about the Mirrodin block that an uncommon from it's been Rare in every reprint since.

@ViashinoWizard: It tells you something about the Mirrodin block when more than five uncommons are now reprinted as rares, mythic rares or outright banned.

@Perfect_Genetics This got bumped up to rare because it ruined Sealed and Draft when everybody had one or two of these in their pool, and it would show up ALL THE TIME. Though one could argue that it was rarity-bumped due to its popularity and effectiveness as a card, that's not a debate we'll get into ;p

At uncommon, this ruined limited. It was way too inevitable in a limited where playing MD artifact hate isn't a good idea, or is hard to come by.

This card is often a game ender with my deck. More flexible then Behemoth Sledge. Great card. 4.5/5

@Tommy9898

I think it's because battle ends in a vowel and axe begins with one, and if you don't know that its a compound word, the 'ea' would be pronounced as in 'read'.

war and hammer don't have any such issue, and are pronounced the same no matter how you combine them.

@Tezz

While it is true that complex cards are often rare, it is not true that simple cards are not rare. Rarity is the means by which wizards can control the frequency of cards appearing in limited. If baneslayer were uncommon, multiple people would play multiples of it in sealed, it is much too powerful to be showing up like that in a limited environment.

Why is it that warhammer is spelled just like that but battle-axe has a dash? It makes it so hard to remember the correct spelling for cards. >:O

Loxodon warhammer Obsidian battle-axe
