Quote from Crispen_Smith »Did Lightning Greaves get banned while I wasn't watching?
This is *not* going to happen every game, but running Sol Ring and Lightning Greaves is pretty much just good deckbuilding.
T1 - Plains(or any other mana source) Sol Ring, Lightning Greaves
T2 - Bird, equip, swing, fetch your land, play a land. Make a 1 mana play
T3 - Bird again, equip, swing, fetch.
Again, this is the cieling of what can be done, but if you have ways to eat your own lands (like Kjeldoran Outpost, Dust Bowl etc. this gets very sick. So that's the tension the developers had when designing the card. It may have been nerfed a little too hard, but if it were much better it would have to be a green card or just break the pie.
