That old Type 2 deck Black Rasmussen put in the article looks awesome. I didn't use Thermokarst a ton because of the double-green color requirement, but I did have it in some old land destruction deck at some point. The new art and flavor text are probably fine. I might just be nostalgic for all the iconic Richard Kane Ferguson art I saw in the 90's. But the original flavor text? My favorite flavor text on any card. It's just so delightfully violent. I didn't find much that resonated with me in the Zach Barash article. But I contemplated it and I guess all of that stuff is probably about right... ...for booster draft and perhaps other Limited formats.
