    Oh lord, the white hurts my eyes. Makes it look like the art is unfinished.

  • Miles Rinesmith

    was wondering if they were going to reprint this in this set.

    • Jakob Schneider

      You, and many others.
      And they delivered not only as a regular card, but even as an Invention, too!

      It’s so cool that you’ll be able to open a masterpiece of this and actually play it, even (at least regarding some limited tournaments).

      • Johan K

        You can play all masterpieces you open.

        • Jakob Schneider

          True, though I’ve also heard of tournaments where the non-Standard legal masterpieces weren’t allowed.

          I’m not sure what the official ruling is on this, although Wizards usually allows the store owners some liberties, so I could imagine that this ruling could be legit.

          • Hedronal

            The official ruling is that masterpieces are allowed if you pull them in limited, any other ruling is an exception.

  • Jakob Schneider

    »Regardless of the century, plane, or species, developing artificers never fail to invent the ornithopter.«

    Which is why I am very happy to see this hovering around in Kaladesh, THE plane of artificers.

    • Jakob Schneider

      Btw, does anyone know what the flavor text says?

      I’ll be even more giddy about this if it references the Mirrodin flavor text.

    Obviously part of the Paradox Engine deck.

    Paying 0 to untap all of your nonland permanents makes this classic dork an automatic shoe-in for the Paradox Engine combo.

    • Daniel Kaine Allen

      You sir just earned my upvote. I can’t believe that hasn’t crossed my mind yet.

  • Bostorket


  • Derek Niles

    keep em’ coming

  • Brian Schmidt

    I don’t know the given state of standard right now. But is this going to make it even faster? Free mana with your improvise? It just sucks because some cards almost push the envelope and just fall short of making it in some eternal format. Am I the only one thinking this?

    • Hedronal

      At least it can’t crew.

  • mehngo

    What a piece of art…. I love this artwork a lot.

  • Shagoth

    Imagine some new player opens this uncommon with a Masterpiece. They slowly slide it up in aw because they heard these masterpieces are like winning the lottery, they see it and it’s Ornithopter. The same card as an uncommon in their pack.
    Seriously this is screwed up.

    • Junior Crusher

      New players need to learn. As a player of 20 years, I want a masterpiece ornithopter!

  • kmk888


    Paradox engine and/or paradoxical outcome love this card. Cards as weak as this can really shine in the right set and I would guess this is the right set.

  • doof


  • joe98921

    Oh my god ornithopter is reprinted

  • kala7989789

    imagine opening the original and the masterpiece in the same pack

  • Xiangyu Chen

    It’s an uncommon

    • Miles Rinesmith

      Still legal in Pauper.

    • Daniel Kaine Allen

      Sometimes reprinted cards get a change in rarity. Nothing new. Besides, its definitely going to go well with several cards in the set, like paradox engine

    • Raven Knight Vincent

      For the most of its life, it has been an uncommon. The only thing common about it is its original appearance in Antiquities and 2015 core set.

  • TheAweDude

    I was waiting for Ornithopter to arrive.
