Release information

This card was reprinted in the Base Set 2 reprint set, which was only released outside of Japan. It was also reprinted as a reverse holographic promotional card by Wizards of the Coast in the Best of Game collection. A jumbo version of the Best of Game print was also released, lacking the reverse-holographic treatment but including the 'Winner' stamp. A special reprint with the same artwork by Ken Sugimori was released in the Platinum expansion. This print modified some of the card text to bring it in line with modern card wording whilst still allowing it to retain its original effects.
