On Very Good Luck

So yesterday, Saturday afternoon, I bought a Darksteel booster of Magic: The Gathering cards.

For those who don't know, 15 card boosters are always split 11 commons, 3 uncommons, and 1 rare. The cards are arranged in that order, to build the suspense as you look through the pack...

So in a thoroughly average pack, I look at my third uncommon. Nothing memorable. So I flip to the rare.

Darksteel Colossus: Artifact Creature- Colossus. (11) 11/11
Darksteel Colossus is indestructible.
If Darksteel Colossus would be put in the graveyard from anywhere, it instead goes back to its owners' hand.

Not bad. A $10.00 card in a $3.67 booster pack.
