I was scanning this card really quickly and mixed up the rules text and flavor text and somehow I came up with the idea that the rules text said "Rusted Sentinel enters the battlefield with your face."

@DoragonShinzui: Read Ferlord's comment just a little more carefully. Yes, Rune-Scarred Demon costs 7, but he said it was a 6/6 flyer for 5... with a Demonic Tutor attached. Demonic Tutor happens to cost 2, and what's 2+5?

I really like the "enters tapped" drawback. It's usually good for +1/+1, and the effects are temporary. As long as blue creatures stink, cards like this will always be playable.

On a side note: we say that no one ever blocks, but playing a card like this really makes you realize exactly how often you expect summoning sick creatures to supply some D.

Doesn't look all that rusted to me. I think it's just lazy. Lazy Sentinel. Yep.

"Enters the battliefield tapped" is actually a lot more prohibitive than it seems at first. Despite the fact that most creatures can't attack on the first turn, this prevents haste entirely, and keeps you from blocking, with what would honestly make a nice blocker on turn 4.

.Amulet of Vigor for a super boring deck.

You threw Ornithopter out of the core set for this?

Pulling this as an uncommon is a terrible feeling when opening a pack, almost as bad as getting an Arbalest Elite. This thing is playable in limited, completely useless anywhere else. I'd have rather had Steel Golem back, which this is obviously meant to replace.

That flavor text is atrocious.

Sentinels seem to take the "Drake" roll of Artifacts of being the "Not-worth-the-cost" creature. (Mostly and entirely referring to Bladed Sentinel. Sorry, I fail History assignments for not having enough sources).

However, unlike my pathetic friend, This is a Golem, and can still be used with the Splicers. It also could be used as a general card for any deck, considering it's artifact-ness, but why does it have a negative effect?

This leads me to believe the Magic world is really messed up. Sure, it's rusted, fine. However, these artisans and creators of these machines are pretty inefficient, since it seems like they can't make something without it partially backfiring, and here comes Rune-Scarred Demon, flaunting his awesomeness of just about being a 6/6 flyer for 5 CMC with Demonic Tutor attached. I thought Demon's were supposed to have negative effects, while machines are perfect! Things like this put Lord of... (see all)
