|New Rating system (RIP Greven)|
Power | Flexibility | Synergy
3.0 - Total Bomb | 3.0 - Effectively Colorless | 3.0 - Best with others
2.0 - Play this card if you can | 2.0 - Splashable, 3 color | 2.0 - Better with some decks
1.0 - Filler | 1.0 - Playable in 2 color without problem | 1.0 - No special interactions
0.0 - Unplayable | 0.0- Needs 10+ colored sources | 0.0 - Sideboard


Great card, but tricky to rate. You can first pick it, but I wouldn't always. You really need on the order of 5 artifacts (and non-creatures are better).

1.0/1.0/3.0

Isn't this a play this card if you can? Having 4+ artifacts plus good card draw seems really good for it.

It gets a low rating because it's literally unplayable without another (artifact) card. In fact, it's a straight up zero with zero artifacts.

OK: Power Rating = (Number of Non-creature artifacts + Number of artifact creatures/2) - 3.

I think, compared to other cards, this should be a 2.0 on power. That's for p1p1 or early in pack one. Later, it goes up or down, as shown by the high synergy score. But for p1p1, picks should go on power level, and it's pretty easy to turn this on if you get it early, no need to make a lot of sacrifices in deck quality.
