. For 20th Anniversary Week, we asked R&D for the most important cards in Magic
's history. Ken Nagle and Shawn Main picked Man-o'-War
. Ken said, "Uktabi Orangutan
, and friends showcased the 'enter the battlefield'-with-a-spell effect, creating powerful creatures for tournament play thanks to their warm bodies being relevant all the time, even if the Shatter
effect was not. Magic
sets nowadays are full of 'enters the battlefield' abilities."
