Problem is, for the same cmc you can get Glory of Warfare.

The orcs always fought harder when their leader busted out his skull-on-a-stick. They knew it meant that there would be a pizza party at Round Table after the battle.

Not quite, Sooku, you're missing one card - Cyclopean Tomb, which was printed without mana cost at all.

Oh, and let me respell your comment more accurately, Guest:
"The most gorgeous of the Alpha misprints, this card was great at a 2 CMC...it remains a rather useless card at 4 CMC..."
Even back then this wouldn't have been broken alongside with Crusade or Bad Moon i guess, and these days you still get cards like Honor of the Pure. It would be a powerful card, but not a broken one.

Actually your both wrong. Armored Pegasus, Samite Healer, Mogg Raider, and Warrior's Honor from Anthologies and the Squall from Starter were printed with the wrong cost. In addition to Oriflamme and Tomb, another Alpha card, Orcish Artillery was printed with the wrong cost. And there are even more misprints when you get into foreign language cards!

This may very well be the only card in magic history with errata-ed mana cost.

The most egregious of the Alpha misprints, this card is broken at 2 CMC...it remains an excellent card at 4 CMC...

They really should not have increased its mana cost.

With the Power Nine around at the time, why the hell did they think this needed to get more expensive.

Sometimes I have no idea what Wizards of the Coast are thinking....

4/5 for the cost it should have kept!!

@ Axelle:
Actually, they didn't really increase the mana cost; the card was supposed to cost four, but like several other cards from Alpha, the final product was misprinted. Here's the address to an article on the subject:
