After the 5 original moxen I think this is the best mox ever printed. I play 4 of these in my 5c stax deck now + the 5 originals. Stax just got meaner on the play. Just Bazaar of Baghdad the other Mox Opals when you draw them. Goblin Welder loves this card too. Definately a vintage worthy Mox, in a Workshop deck it's almost a sure bet it will accelerate your first turn.

Why did they make it legendary if they are going to restrict or ban it anyway?

The only thing that stops this shattering from being so broken is that it's legendary

I got one in a booster pack when the set first came out. It is a sick land, only wish you could use 4 of them.

It's obviously not an auto-include in every deck, but it is in an awful lot of them. I have at least three where it's just as good as a real Mox.

Just be glad we didn't have this back in the days of Affinity.

Who else re-read this, saw it was legendary and immediately thought it was sort of terrible?

If it wasn't for the Legendary supertype, it would have felt as powerful as the other Mox. Imagine, a lucky opening hand: four Mox Opals, a land, a Dark ritual, and your favorite 7 or less CMC card, like, dunno, a Hunting Pack? Well, it's still quite possible to use his ability on the very first turn, with an artifact land and some 0 or 1 CMC artifact card.

limited to artifacts heavy decks, that will see some massive nuke in the future

To play the four glint hawks you would additionally need some more 0 cost artifacts, so that's not a very likely situation to come up. I agree with the previous comments that it is not worth 40-50$, but I do like it as a card. Nice with metalcraft, trinket mage and other cards that abuse cheap artifacts. I'll buy some when they cross the $10 mark ;-).

4 Glint Hawks on turn 1 (or "turn 0") is, last time I checked, pretty damn stupid. Not to mention that turn 2 could then follow up with an Etched Champion. This will drop in price, but I doubt it will drop as much as people think.

@Akym: It is unlikely, to a point, but still a possibility. I now realize that you actually would not be able to play Etched Champion the next turn after a hand like that...wasn't thinking straight. I don't think it will ever be banned, or that it's worth $40 either. But with all the 0 cost artifacts in standard right now, and all the goofy tricks that you can use, I doubt this will drop any lower than $30.
