Today I actually bought a Starter Deck with the Astral Sentry in it.
The number of commons, uncommons and rares (not counting the Astral
Sentry) came out as:
- 48 Commons
- 18 Uncommons
- 2 Rares

This would lead me to believe Astral Sentry is a rare, as then the
numbers would all match up to what we've normally found in Starters

I've also shot messages off to Skuzzy and FASA both asking to clarify
the rarity of the card.

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
