    The difference is that when Scour was legal it wasn't during an enchantment block. People are maindecking Revoke Existence sometimes and with the new block having even more enchantments I fully expect white control to run 2 Deicide in their 60.


    Actually Urzas block was an enchantment block, it was where Scour was first printed.

    @urweak unplayable? It is an instant speed answer versus one of the most used card types on standard. Revoke existence sees maindeck use, and the only thing it does better than this is exiling godsend. The god clause makes this an answer against thassa, mainly, maybe versus athreos depending on how much play it sees- it makes the card better, not worse- let alone unplayable lmao


    I think you missed the part where I clarified that I think the card is unplayable outside of Block/Standard. It's in the nested quotes if you read carefully.

    Good card for the block, but they should have just made it any enchantment. Its almost unplayable outside of block/standard.

    It can exile any enchantment.
    If you talk about it taking away all copies of any enchantment this card would have been just broken. Yes I exile all your Underworld Connections, Detention Spheres, Courser of Kruphix, your gods etc.


    Black Lotus is broken, Yawgmoth's Will is broken. Being able to exile all copies of one enchantment isn't. Look at Scour, it's an old card that cost 4 and is uncommon. With Decide being rare and the fact that we are getting all these powerful enchantments, I think we need an updated version of Scour. Adding the God stipulation just makes the card unplayable.

    Wow, I wish I could find over a $1,000 in cards in a drawer. Gaping

    As for the deck, instead of scrapping it and starting new. You still might be able to make it a decent deck. Drop the hippies, bridge, pit, orb, and rack. Up the Enlightened Tutor count and add the combo of Rest in Peace + Helm of Obedience. It's and instant mill combo. Also cut Smother for Dismember, replace sink holes with Wasteland; like suggested above.

    The vintage decks of today usually have another win with Tinker + something big like Blightsteel Colossus. But you dont have the moxen and other artifact cards to support Tinkers sac requirement.

    Personally, I just view the criticism of her as misogynistic hate speech.

    That was a different time in our country. At the time, the president believed that marriage should be between a man and a women. Has the CEO changed his views in recent years? Also, does anyone use JavaScript?

    Not really a Fox News fan, but I do enjoy Red Eye. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7giFxTFCmxk

    This whole thing reminds me of that Paula Deen mess awhile ago. If only politicians were held to this kind of standard.

    I hope they print something that turns a creature into an enchantment. Keeping it's abilities, but stops being a creature.

    Let's start out first by saying this. Large businesses do things by a vote. It's majority rules, so if the majority of the employees have taken communion, that would be one way.


    Well that's not true.


    The CEO reports to the board of directors.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Board_of_directors

    The legal responsibilities of boards and board members vary with the nature of the organization, and with the jurisdiction within which it operates. For companies with publicly trading stock, these responsibilities are typically much more rigorous and complex than for those of other types.


    Quote from FoxBlade

    Hmmm...From the first paragraph in the link you provided:

    Corporate personhood is the legal concept that a corporation may be recognized as an individual in the eyes of the law. This doctrine forms the basis for legal recognition that corporations, as groups of people, may hold and exercise certain rights under the common law and the U.S. Constitution. For example, corporations may contract with other parties and sue or be sued in court in the same way as natural persons or unincorporated associations of persons. The doctrine does not hold that corporations are flesh and blood "people" apart from their shareholders, officers, and directors, nor does it grant to corporations all of the rights of citizens.

    Billy is saying that a corporation exists in the same capacity as a flesh and blood person and therefore is deserving of the same religious freedoms. Let's not play word games, I think you knew what LordOwlingtonIII was getting at.


    In the legal sense a corp are people. It's that simple, if you want to ignore the law, we have nothing left to talk about. Because you are speaking from magical christmas land.

    Particularly since the notion that one will believe corporations are people when they see one go to jail is a common rejoinder given by people well aware of the idea of corporate personhood and find it distasteful.


    So you think that everyone employeed by Enron should have went to jail? Is there something distasteful about the opposite happening (only a few people going to jail)?

    Quote from LordOwlingtonIII

    The Catholic faith requires members take communion. For LordOwlington LLC to be a Catholic (which is possible according the corperations are people [my friend] model) it needs to take communion. How can LordOwlington LLC do this?

    I'll spell it out for you: It can't because no matter what legal argle-boggle that's currently posing as law corporations are not people. When a corporation goes to jail, we'll talk.


    Let's start out first by saying this. Large businesses do things by a vote. It's majority rules, so if the majority of the employees have taken communion, that would be one way.

    Secondly, you seem mention an LLC and a Corp as if they are the same thing. They are not.

    Finally, you make the wild statement that Corporations aren't people. Clearly you have no idea what you are talking about, you should take some time and look into Corporate personhood. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporate_personhood
