Actually, you do see this kind of stuff in modern magic from time to time. See Obsidian Fireheart. A lot of people don't like this kind of stuff, though, so it's used rather sparingly.

"Is it just me or is that Oracle text way more confusing than it needs to be?"

@lica_barelli: The second ability does sound really complicated at first, but i think there's no way to make the Oracle wording much simpler. In such peculiar cases, Alpha's common language might still help as reminder text, but just won't do it for such an elaborate game anymore because it's not distinct enough once there are card interactions.

It still does basically exactly what was originally inteded with " If Cyclopean Tomb is destroyed, remove one token of your choice each upkeep, returning that land to its original nature."
I'm pretty sure back then they didn't plan that you could still Stifle this ability, say, twenty turns after it went to the graveyard (long after it could remove any more mire counters), though :D

This ability is very uncommon or at least something you wouln't find on newer cards of this sort (that change particular array of perma... (see all)

Flavoursome ability - I don't think you'd ever see anything like this in modern magic.

Interesting art. The card is just a pain to keep track of, though.

@Baconradar (great name, btw) - Incredibly flavourful! Right down to the intricate mechanics: the corruption caused by the artifact slowly disappears once it's destroyed.

You know what else you don't often see in modern magic? Art this friggin metal. Mummified remains resting in the pupil of a giant stone eye? The surrounding area even looks like it's part of a 'face'. I wonder if there's a full version somewhere... Anson Maddocks consistently produced some of the best art in MtG
