How this managed to see seven printings is beyond me...

@adrian.malacoda: Giant Spider. Circle of Protection — any of them. Serra Angel. There are plenty of old cards that fall in between.

I would fly into a whole new dimension of ***ed off if this was the rare I pulled from a booster.

The fact that this card wastes a rare slot is so infuriating that a judge might find that robbing WoTC for our money back is a justifiable crime. It gets a .5/5 for making sure that yet another core set is completely unbuyable.

The token has a name. That's how you can tell this card is old, and therefore probably crud (all old cards are either broken or crud).

Still overcosted after all these years...I have take this card OUT of so many decks. Still, this one has good artwork.

Well, this card is useful for affinity. I'll give it that much. There aren't a lot of cards out there that can pump out artifact tokens. Tokens yes, but the fact that they are artifacts really does help. Yes, the activation cost is way too high, but once I get a Mycosynth Golem or two out my lands are suddenly useless. That's when I can start pumping out wasps. And with Darksteel Forge they're indestructible wasps. It has the potential to be an extremely good card, it's just too damn expensive to run that effectively.

Probably extremely annoying in limited as a source of unlimited flying blockers/attackers, but I definitely wouldn't play it outside that format.

why is this card so bad? my guess, and i'm pretty sure i heard it somewhere too, is that they were afraid that creature tokens would be too powerful, so they nerfed it. Lets face it, they had no idea what they were doing back then

The bees! Not the bees!

I'd rather use any card but the bees!

Mana Echoes, Clock of Omens, and Parallel Lives (or Doubling Season).

With no other Insects, tapping the hive will get you {4} and two tokens with which to untap. I would throw in Jhoira's Toolbox or Hex Parasite (both insects) which will then give you {6} the first time you tap so you can go infinite immediately.
