What's your favorite artifact in Magic?


Steve Warner: Helm of Obedience was probably my favorite artifact card ever. I was always a big fan of using my opponents' decks against them (tai chi style), so I would use Control Magics and Steal Artifacts along with Helm in order to take their stuff and kill them.

Helm of Obedience

The best part of the Helm was that it didn't matter if they were running creatures or not. If they didn't have any creatures, you just milled them forever. Helm of Obedience was also very fun with tricks to untap the Helm and set it off multiple times before the first use of its ability resolved, trying to get multiple creatures.
