No comments? Really? This card is powerful, much better than Ur-Golem's Eye in my opinion.

for those who don't want to spend too much on the Relic's Sol Ring, this will do. This is still a 5/5 in my book. :)

Just the fact that this is a perfectly decent playable card goes to show how truly broken Sol Ring is.

Anyone who thinks this card is aweful simply hasnt used it properly and probably doesnt understand that getting into the game a full turn earlier can mean winning or losing. One turn is all it takes to lose, as real players already know.

The powerstone is MUCH better because you get into the game a full turn earlier, costing 3 instead of 4, and you get the SAME 2 colorless as either of those others give.
It blows thran dynamo and sisay's ring away because you end up being able to use it one full turn earlier than either of those. With thran dynamo and sisay's ring youre blowing 4 mana on turn four so its turn 5 before you even get to use it with any effectiveness.
With the worn powerstone you play turn 3 so on turn 4 you have 6 mana available.

Basalt Monolith was fine in its day, but it stinks compared to the Worn Powerstone quite frankly, because you get to use it once and then its dead weight the rest of the game, unless of course youre the type who loves throwing 3 mana away ever... (see all)

Decent card, but it looked better in older frame.

Hey look! Just like Time Walk to Time Warp, Demonic Tutor to Diabolic Tutor, It's Sol Ring to this!

Pretty ridiculous. Assuming you're getting a land each turn, playing this on turn 3 gets you to 6 next turn without any other acceleration. Sure, you give up a turn, but who doesn't want to be playing a Wurmcoil Engine while your opponent might be playing Trinket Mage?

I've always loved this card. Back in the day, I used it to mana accelerate my mono green deck.

This vs. Ur-Golem's Eye? If you have an open three drop slot in your deck, you play this. If you have an open four drop slot AND is likely to have something to play for {2} on the same turn (most likely an artifact deck), you play Ur-Golem's Eye. It depends on the deck, I think it's as simple as that.

(Comparisons with Sol Ring are not fair, since it's f*ing broken, plain and simple.)
