    There was no way this wasn’t going in the set. Common rarity is nice.

    • Theblue ant

      This is an uncommon

      • Aarhg

        Dangit, Magic Spoiler, I was looking at the text beside the card. Well, still sweet.

    • Happy The Cat

      to be fair, we also said that about Iconic, but this multiple format defining card didn’t show up in Iconic.

      • Aarhg

        But since it didn’t get included in Iconic Masters there was more reason to print it in this set.
        Also, with Dark Ritual in the set, I had an inkling kinda. Of course it was just guesswork, haha.

  • JD Farrell

    We have three of the boons… at this point they really should just finish off the complete cycle :P

    • Kameenook

      The other two being……. healing salve ancestral recall ?

      • JD Farrell


  • ShannoSauro

    omfg uncommon

  • Julian Allen

    o/ bolt brainstorm and counterspell. Immediatepy love this set

    • Cooper Jurgen ZIlkenat

      My 3 favorite cards. I always need copies of them for something, so even if I don’t walk out of the one draft I am probably going to do with a particularly pricey rare, there’s always a couple of those to sweeten the pot.

  • AustinSmith

    Can’t tell if common or uncommon. Looks common to me. My prayers have been answered if that’s true.

    • Edward

      Look at the letter on the bottom of the card next to the card number. It is a U meaning uncommon.

      • AustinSmith

        Ah. My prediction, not my prayers, then.

        My disappointment is immeasurable, and my day is ruined.

  • Ryan Cooper

    i have to say, they are showing pauper some love so far!

    • Aidan23

      This is uncommon

      • Marvin Sürig

        It was common so it’s pauper legal

    • Happy The Cat

      I guess? it’s not like it’s hard to ge- holy f$% Bolt is up to a $4 nf,
      anyhow, it’s not like this is getting added to Pauper or anything Bolt has been common since Alpha.

      • Marvin Sürig

        I guess Ryan meant that there are quite some reprints and new cards for pauper in this set.

  • Happy The Cat

    didn’t think they could disappoint me with Bolt, but they found a way.
    They REALLY had to bring back that flavor text… I guess it is fitting, I was literally just asking where Bolt was, and I kinda am a sparkmage.
    I just wish we could’ve gotten this with “Lightning Bolt deals 3 damage to target creature or player.” full centered on the current border. Would’ve been a great clean foil.

    • Shagoth

      Dang that is some nit picking. You always complain about burn, and when they bring back the king of burn… you complain about old flavortext. Lord if you’re going to nit pick something at least let it be the rarity.

      • Happy The Cat

        Don’t get me wrong, I love that we are getting a reprinting of Bolt. But, I mean look at Counterspell, see how clean that looks? I simply would have wanted that clean look with the current border.

        • Shagoth

          I mean, I guess…

        • Deus Exx

          nah screw that, I love that text and it fits

  • Shagoth


  • sansmyhands

    Love that this is here, but man I wish they would’ve just gone with centered text and the original artwork.

  • Kahai

    Really would have preferred this center justified without flavor text, comeon WOTC!

  • Makarthekorokwarrior

    I wish this were common.

  • Bruiser Moore

    Man, yet again, original art would’ve knocked this outta the park.

  • Dave

    New art would’ve been apppreciated.

  • ConDucktor Whirl Crate God

    Was hoping for new art :/

  • Kameenook

    So is this card common or uncommon ? The set symbol to me looks quite black (common), but on the bottom as Edward noted below there’s a U on the card for uncommon. Uncommon would go more along the lines with what they’ve done with masters sets in the past (and makes a lot of sense for limited purposes) but the card is unclear for whatever reason. Maybe common is possible with counterspell also being at common (another traditionally efficient / powerful effect)

    • JD Farrell

      It’s Uncommon. The U at the bottom is clear.

      • Kameenook

        But it’s also clearly a black set symbol (at least to me) and which is the one we default to to believe?

        • JD Farrell

          The letter. Colours can be obscure, and this set has certainly shown that with people constantly getting confused. That is definitely a U.
