"Overall, 3.5/5" - I'm sorry, but that is the joke. This card deserves nothing less than a 5/5. I t costs nothing, and in the right deck can balance out the game play or keep you alive to destroy your opponent.

In the right decks (balance, necro, crucible) this is crazy.. but what really makes this card truly amazing is that you can put this in any deck and have life gain on demand.

The effect is rather poor on its own, but this is perhaps the best sacrifice outlet ever made. {0} cost, no other costs to use besides the sacrifice, and the 2 life just becomes gravy. The cards it usually gets paired with in these comments were all stupid ridiculous, but I have a feeling there are combos with saner cards that are still pretty crazy.

Combos with a third of your deck.

"Sacrifice a land to gain 2 life" is pitch-perfect iambic pentameter.

Ugh, back in the day this card + balance... if you were on the receiving end of the combo it was game over. The black summer of 1995... those were so NOT the days!

In the right deck.. overpowered. In the wrong deck... Can save you in a pinch.

One of those cards which has to played to understand how truly, game-winningly awesome it is. You can't just read it and think you 'get' it.

I alwats liked the artwork and flavour text too, even if they're a bit 'generic fantasy' for my usual tastes.
