I think Wizards should reprint at least one hilariously atrocious common of each color in every core set, just because the best negative reactions to it are creative or hilarious or both. You have to give the people who came up with the best Storm Crow jokes some new material to work with.

And if you're going to print bad cards for that reason, this might be the best bad card ever -- you really can't beat an overcosted bad ability with art featuring an inexplicable giant glowing ballsack-looking thing and racist flavor text.

This card is the ultimate nexus of suck. That has to be worth something.

Obviously this card is awful in constructed, but in limited I think it works. On magic game day this card saved my life at least twice. Many of the decks I faced were faster than mine in the early game, so I'd take some damage while I ramped up to my big creatures. Once they hit the field I usually had a dominating board presence that they couldn't deal with, but if a flier or direct damage spell slipped through it might be able to finish me off. This card provided a decent buffer that gave me time to run them over with my bombs and win. Still wouldn't touch it in constructed though.

Say what you want about this card but if you are a pro like me, than you will have a lot of land and this card would then be useful!

Combos with Boundless Realms.

Which is not going to help you alot against an aggro deck (or any other deck), but who plays aggro anyways?

All the hate on lifegain here at Gatherer. It's as if Chalice of Life never existed. Gatherer loves the Chalice, though.

This is one of only two unplayable cards that Jason Chan has illustrated. The rest are either amazing in limited, constructed, or have been at some point. The other unplayable card is Noble Vestige.

Really great art, but i wish they had made it an instant.
