I'm sure people will continue to demonize this cycle for a long time. They're hella weak and they horn in on valuable uncommon slots.

I'm sooooo going to get flamed for this, but...

...this cycle isn't that bad...especially with the introduction of metalcraft and phyrexian mana. If only they didn't waste uncommon slots on them.

Its actually useful, more than people think it is. -_-;

One time, I was about to start a game of EDH when I realized every body had at least some black in their deck, with a few even playing mono. So I threw it in. And, despite being rated a 1.6 star card here, it gained me over 40 life for two mana by the time it was removed. But it is bad in 1v1, so I guess I'll give it a 2/5. And if it was a common, you guys would be ranting about how you pulled five of this junk cycle at the prerelease. It may be uncommon to stop that from happening, like with Akoum Boulderfoot and razor boomerang.

These cards aren't that bad. They are cheap, they go towards metalcraft, once you get them out, you don't have to actively do anything with them, and if you get multiple out, you can actually get some decent life gain. Nourish is 6 life for 2 green. In a proper deck, this can net you way more life for 2 colorless.

I think Wizards has said something along the lines of their reason for reprinting these is to trick newer players into playing something awful so they can learn later that lifegain isn't very valuable.

That doesn't really sound like a recipe for a crowd-pleaser to say the least.

I can see it being kinda nice for a sidedeck, at least.

Dear R&D,

Please stop reprinting these pieces of garbage. Thank you.

I'm getting tired of looking at this cycle.
