    Has anybody else noticed that Sparring Golem (Inv) has the exact same ability as rampage? Have the people at WOTC ran out of ideas and have to re-animated rampage?

    Well there are 4888 different cards in Magic so I wouldn't be surprised if they just threw it in. Anyway it isn't exactly like rampage, rampage is "creature gets +X/+X for each creature blocking after the first"...at least I think so.

    Really! I thought there was 4887. Shucks, musta missed one ;)

    It`s not QUITE rampage, but it is a close analogy. I think they basically decided Rampage was a good ability, but badly worded so made a simplified version - first seen on Elvish Berzerker in Exodus, yes?

    ...keep saying that WotC has ran out of ideas?
    Wasn't Invasion enough or something? I mean, come on! Most of the cards in Invasion are bran new cards with bran new abilities. Kicker? That sounds good to me, and don't even tell me it's a "watered-down" version of "whatever".

    As for the ability, well, some cards you have to give them what you have to give them, no matter how "old" the "mechanic" is or whatever.

    I bet in the future we'll see a creature with "All creatures blocking ~ gain -1/-1 until end of the turn", sure, you'll say it resemble flanking, but hey, the card just MIGHT beg for something like that, so hey:)...

    There:)...

    Actually, I thought it was supposed to resemble rampage since Sparring Golem is pretty much a reprint of Horrible Hordes.

    I know. It was bad the first time, it's still bad now.

    I think its a decent card, and yes, rampage still excists, just not officially. This is the "less confusing" wording now.

    DUke: This is an old coversation. I like invasion, it was just very low on new ideas. Kicker wasnt explored nearly enough, the pile cards are...well, piles (Even though i do like them), and eveything is a reprint with multicolor stuff attached. Im not saying its a bad thing, just pointing it out.

    But at least the reprints are good:

    Good:
    Ravenous rats
    Harrow
    Quirion elves
    Soul Burn (To a lesse extent)

    Bad:
    Zap

    see?

    and What's so confusing about rampage?
