Would he not have been much better if he cost X? With a limitation to only need to spend 3 on him?

Also my other problem with a card like this is that he doesn't have 'synergy' with Myr Reservoir and Palladium Myr which is a shame.

Maybe he should be 3 casting cost with sunburst giving a bonus if 3 different colours are spent casting the creature.

Should have been 1/1 instead of 0/0. Would have been a cool, efficient beater.

4x City of Ass and it is a 5/5 too ;)

This card would actually be better if it cost 2 more and did not change in any other way. It is possible unique in that regard. I don't think you could ever say that about anything else, with the possible exception of other very small Sunburst cards.

I would ask who thought it was a good idea to put a five-color theme in an artifact block, but I guess we know.

Aaron's Random Card Comment of the Day #22, 10/26/10

This most-vanilla sunburst card gives me a great excuse to talk about the mechanic in general.

I designed the sunburst mechanic; it was one of the first I ever made. I was still working as the website editor for MagicTheGathering.com at the time, and Mark Rosewater asked me to be on the Fifth Dawn design team because he figured the experience would let me generate a few interesting articles. Little did either of us know I’d be competent at design!

My thought process for sunburst went something like this: “By the time this set comes out, players will be able to make a deck entirely of artifacts, including 24 artifact lands. That deck will be able to produce all five colors of mana, especially if you played a bunch of Myr. Wouldn’t it be neat if that meant something? Also, in limited, having a card pool full of artifacts often lets you be a little loose and free with your colored mana and play the best cards. How... (see all)

@ applecorn: that's way overthought and awesome.

Yes, I had already thought about making a Sunburst deck with Fist of Suns, but there simply aren't enough burst cards.

@ ChaoticDarkness: In the right deck, playing 3-5 colors is easy. But the deck has to be built around that theme.

Fist of Suns can make this a 5/5.

Being an artifact is another weakness. Also, even if you're not playing green, there's always Cathodion.

Not even rated 2 stars. I guess we expect more for our multicolor these days. This just can't compare to Sprouting Thrinax and the like. The 2 cmc version would have been more interesting in my opinion.
