The missing piece to every combo.

This is going to get insane in Scars of Mirrodin. If you're a very serious player or a "market player," get these now.

"Hey, guys, here's an awesome idea! So, you remember how Voltaic Key was banned because it was broken as hell in its block? Well, there's an artifact block coming up, and I think we should reprint it! Come on, what could possibly go wrong?"

Glad they used the PvC art.

The flavor text is reminiscent of M10 Lightning Bolt.

Be prepared for some mad combos once Scars of Mirrodin gets released.
(I guess Wizards will keep track of that, though.
Well, i hope they'll be careful with artifacts that have a powerful effect by just tapping them^^)

Flavour text is spot-on.

All these comments are pre-Scars. This didn't have the game breaking effect that these comments mention. Nevertheless, this will definitely have a big impact ion Modern Artifact decks,

Time Vault + this= win.

This is out, and it's already made the current artifacts scarier. With scars on the horizon, it looks like artifacts just might become dominant in standard again.

What's next wizards? Printing Time Vault in Scars?
