I was so confused the other day, this guy Oblivion Ringed my Wurm, then destroyed all colored permanents. I had the only creature in play, and it was 6/6.

@A3kitsune; This is Lorwyn block. It was heavily based on Brian Froud's 1978 work Faeries and several similar works, where a suggestion to ward off the "fickle folk" was to use various strange charms. Sugar was meant to either simply ward off supernatural pests or bribe them into going somewhere else as a treat.

Good attempt, but it's wrong,
Ashling, The Extinguisher was from Eventide,
Which was AFTER Lorwyn/Morningtide,
After the Aurora messed everything up.
The O-ring itself is causing some sort of purple gas or powder, if you look closely,
The Flamekin is catching certain bits of it aflame.

I like this art the best. Unfortunately, they probably won't ever reprint this specific art, since it has an elemental and they are so closely identified with Lorwyn.

The sugar thing is an interesting example of anachronism in folklore, because access to granulated sugar in the British Isles (except as an exotic luxury) only arrived with the advent of mass slavery in the Caribbean and advances in technology - long, long after the period that would later be romanticized into the basis for Lorwyn had passed. Beet sugar arrived even later than that, once granulated sugar had become a staple part of the European diet but Emancipation pushed up its price, but since what we've seen of Lorwyn's climate (and can infer from its real-world basis) is much better-suited to the cultivation of beets than sugar cane, and extracting sucrose from the former is actually a bit lower-tech than the latter, and if they meant like honey or something they would have said so, I feel like it's a safe conclusion that the sugar referenced in the flavor text is beet sugar - assuming it's not some magical granulated pollen extract or the like.

One of the most versatile and powerful white removal spells ever. Its ability to remove planeswalkers is an added bonus.

This artwork for Oblivion Ring is the better of the two. Also best Lorwyn common hands down! =)

If I'm not mistaken, the creature trapped in the art is a Nova Chaser.

Sure, for a 3-drop removal spell, Vindicate is still the best, but if you don't play black this is the next best thing.
