The funny thing about Antiquities?

I can't find a consistent answer to say HOW MANY cards are in it -_-

Gatherer says 85.

MTGWiki says BOTH 85 and 100, and has a short 'explanatory' paragraph that shows a breakdown of rarities, but does not quickly/clearly state why it gives both 85 and 100 as the number.

And other sites sometimes say 102, which I believe is due to two notable misprints.

I found this:

"Rare cards are shown in bold text and occur only once (u1) on the uncommon sheet.
Uncommon cards are shown in italics and occur either two (u2) or three (u3) times on the uncommon sheet or
once (c1) or twice (c2) on the common sheet.
Common cards are shown in normal text and occur four (c4) times on the common sheet."

Which probably helps to explain sets with only U's and C's, but specifically Antiquities is weird even among those. :P

This is typically the "Pimped" mishra's; probably because it not only looks the nicest but probably also because it's the "uncommon" one. Either way, this card is extremely good and still casual friendly. If you want to beef your deck a tiny bit; swapping some basics for this guy is a quick upgrade.

A new player may look at this and think "meh"; but anyone with a bit of experience can attest it's continued value.

May I also point out something fun? Deserted Temple can allow you to double boost meaning if you have a 2 Swamps,a Temple, and a Factory; you can block, boost to a 3/3, then untap it, then boost to a 4/4; all with only one factory! Very fun.

I would love to see a mash-up of Nightmare before Christmas and The Brothers' War. Mishra could be Jack , and Yawgmoth could be Oogy-Boogy, and Urza will be the mad scientist who then has to take him down!
