I've always found this to be a reasonably good permanent to have in play when you're top decking lands. What else are you planning to do with all those lands that turn??

While this card is certainly not stellar by any means, it does have one very useful application: in an artifact-focused deck, it can serve as an alternate win condition between the ease of producing colorless mana and its ability to be searched with Trinket Mage. Of course, there are much better win conditions for such a deck between Steel Overseer, Master of Etherium, Chimeric Mass, etc., but against a deck with lots of things like creature removal/Runed Halos/Pithing Needles/Meddling Mages/Phyrexian Negators/Linvala, Keeper of Silence, having one or two of these in your sideboard can really serve to keep your kills from being completely shut down.

Plus, if you're running an infinite mana loop like Grim Monolith/Power Artifact, this could be a turn 3 win (... (see all)

Is it just me or is the original wording a lot better?

It seems with that, you can have it deal damage to multiple targets, and not just one, like Oracle says now.

Hmmm i may have to revisit this card with the new proliferate mechanic.

@AluminumAngel

For some reason, many '!' and some other punctuation got truncated when they fed in the cards to Oracle from whatever they used before. Card names seem unaffected, as some UN- cards have punctuation in them. But almost every flavortext with an exclamation point is missing it on Gatherer. Some italics and other things are screwy too.

Seemed to be OK with '!' within quotes though.

Edit: Never mind... Look at Craw Giant. I don't know what the pattern is, I guess.

Oh look, another use for Volt Charge.

Mono-Red artifact proliferate is looking better and better every day.

There's an error in the Oracle flavor text.
