With the number of wheels Nekusar runs, I would never be unhappy to have a Sol Ring in play.

Is the number of printings relevant to banning a card?

Yes, in some instances.

Library of Alexandria- Banned mostly because it is so expensive and goes into any deck with little opportunity cost. Were this card as cheap as Reliquary Tower I don't think it would be banned, though that's debatable.

Ancestral Recall- Banned because it is so expensive. Its the best at what it does, but were it a 25¢ common I don't think it would be banned (though I don't doubt we would have a "This Year's Ancestral Recall Thread).

If Sol Ring were a $150 and hard to come by it might be banned. But because it has been printed so often its now only a few dollars. I know Mana Crypt is expensive, but its been printed a few more times and isn't anywhere in the same demand as would be the arguably better Sol Ring were Sol Ring at the same scarcity.

I'm not sure when a card becomes worthy a ban. The only card banned in recent years that upset our meta was emrakul. And we stopped playing it before the ban came down.

But it seems that when a card becomes central to the meta to the exclusion of other strategies and fun it gets banned. Sol Ring isn't doing that.
