Declaration in Stone
 
This card uses an awful lot of words to write out a very simple effect. Of course, so does Balance, and we all know what its pedigree is. Declaration in Stone may not go on to have quite the same long-term legacy, but it's pretty spectacular nonetheless. Card drawing isn't quite the end-all of Magic that it was once considered to be, and there are plenty of situations where your opponent would rather have a table full of creatures than a bunch of random extra draws later on. Don't forget that it can in fact target tokens, and it's actually advantageous to do so - don't skim the text and misread the "non-token" clause on the wrong part like I almost did!
