Aaron's Random Card Comment of the Day #31, 11/8/10

Both Scars of Mirrodin and all the sets in the original Mirrodin block contain many artifact cards with colored mana symbols on them. (I’m pleased that the ones in Scars are actually, you know, colored as opposed to the grayed-out ones on the cards from the original Mirrodin block, which were that way because of a long-since-solved printing complication created when we switched to the newer card frames.) We include so many colored-activated artifacts to both broaden what artifacts are capable of and to narrow what decks they go it. As anyone that has played a fair bit of Scars sealed deck recently can attest to, a huge number of purely colorless cards can be daunting to evaluate. Hopefully the colored mana symbols help give direction.

Ideally, artifacts with colored mana symbols still function in a deck that can’t generate that color of mana, but are way better in decks that can. ... (see all)

So it's basically Counterspell: The Equipment. Sweet. If I'm in blue then I'd rather have this than the Greaves.

"worst then Lightning Greaves"

You can't equip Lightning Greaves as an instant like you can this card. Opponent Lightning Bolt's your creature, you respond by equipping this Artifact to it, the Bolt is countered due to no legal targets.

Indeed akirhol, you are correct. I'd prefer the ol' Leonin Shikari/Lightning Greaves trick, but this is a more than acceptable alternative in a deck not running the Shikari or going for all out aggro, like a blue deck, perhaps.

Sorry, Hibron, but that honor actually belongs to Cranial Plating. This is probably second.

I run 2 of these in my blue control deck just for insurance... they are very helpful.

I like the flavour of this card. Its like the suit is made of a certain liquid metal.
