I know they shouldn't, but I wish they'd reprint the FTV art once. I love that art.

But Truth be told, this card is...powerful, but weak. For "Constructed" play, it's practically no better than many commons.

5/5 for nostalgia and limited awesomeness.

Well, he still kills you in about a turn or two with a nice, big pump. Perfectly playable.
