Back in my day... we had at least one of these in every deck. It was just a given. We also had to walk to and from school. Uphill. Both ways. In the snow.

Sol Ring makes more mana than it costs - that's the trick. This is why Sisay's Ring didn't work.

In order to justify NOT having this card in your deck, it would have to have no spells with colorless mana. If your deck has spells with colorless mana in the casting cost, you should have this card in it. No exceptions. I don't think it's any more complicated than that.

Sol Ring's getting the From the Vault treatment!! It's going to get reprinted with new artwork! It's also exciting to see how this card's price has always stayed in the affordable range, so even your poor kid on the block can have some vintage mana ramp against power 9 players.

I think Vedalken Engineer from Darksteel is one of the best cards in the set, mostly because it takes the Sol Ring formula from "hideously, brokenly powerful" down to merely "way too good." Obviously a fantastic card, possibly more worthy of the Power 9 than Timetwister. Whatever, this is P9 material to me. :)

I love this card. It's served me well these past 15 years. I remember when they were a dollar lol.

For the comments about it being the 10th card in the Power9, making it the Power 10, I'm not sure I agree with that, because Library of Alexandria is already at that space :)
