Zur the Enchanter
 
When Zur was new in Standard, we had just recently had Enduring Ideal, and there was some number of people who questioned why he was any kind of improvement over that card. Of course, now we know that the answer is that he can be a commander. The other answer is that for almost every category of card, especially one of the fundamental card types, the chance that more of them will be printed at some point is very high, even when restrictions like Zur's are taken into account. Even in the year he was released, Zur could help you draw cards, destroy permanents, and steal cheap creatures. I haven't looked up any more recent EDH decks with him of late, but he's almost certainly even better now.
