Far too expensive for what it does. Reduce both costs by 1 or 2 and then it could be nice.

Where is it!, says someone at the back.
"Aladdin is already using it, stand back!" Says Aladdin's friend.
A beggar mumbles: "...poor Aladdin, he might have hit his head or something."

Nervan must not have been referring to this ring.

To be honest, I would love this card if it dealt 1 damage instead and lost the tap payment, because although that would make this card even worse, it would make this card more understandable. Making it deal 4 damage makes it seem that the Ring was meant to be good and rewarding to the player that got enough mana. For this effect of "your chronically built-up mana finally paying off" to be fulfilled with the cost of 8 colorless and tapping I think the damage would need to be at least 5. Having the damage at 4 is confusing in this way, since the idea of it wants play but the numbers create too insufficient an effect for the player, leaving them disappointed. Having the damge at 1 would shatter the illusion that the card is supposed to be a nuclear bomb that ends the game, as well as admit to not having play ability instead of trying to achieve so, and thus makes the card more understandable. Losing the tap payment would make this useful ... (see all)

Jostens were always overpriced to be so lame.
