[img]Lotus Bloom is a fine card. That's all.

It will never or rarely see play in Vintage. The main reason, as many of you have allready mentioned it, is its speed. Turn four? Vintage is all about speed. Turn four is very often to late to change the destiny of a game. Furthermore, to have it turn 4, you NEED to draw it turn 1 or simply have it in your opening hand. What are the odds? If you play 4 of them perhaps it will appear quite often in your first 7/8 cards. But who in the world will play 4?? That's four invaluable slots! Most (all??) current decks just can't afford to give up 4 other useful cards. Besides drawing a Bloom in turn 3 or 7 is just terrible. That's almost like giving a draw away...

Summing up: Lotus Bloom is an interesting card but it will not be played a lot. On the other hand all the people that have always dreamt of a o lotus, but can't afford to buy one, can enjoy it. Have fun!
