Welcome to black, targeted enchantment removal. Now what?
Quote from Reaper9889 »This is a very strong card in future standard I think. It is likely better than Heartless Act in most matchups simply because there are a reasonable amount of counters (on creatures - the spell kind is rarer) running around. Besides that there are a few enchanments that would be nice to destroy and even a rare few creatureless control decks. It is bad vs red agro, but otherwise solid. It is funny on Stonecoil Serpent
Quote from Morphling »This card is equal parts troubling and promising.
I hope it is a sign they are finally going to let all colors do stuff but they must do it in a way that is (yes) handicapped in some way that is flavorful to what that color wants to do.
It could be great or it could completely ruin significantly change the color wheel and by extension the game itself.
The thing is though..it feels like they've basically alrady been doing this in red for nearly a decade now, nibbling around the edges here and there. And the game didn't break in half. Based on recent comments out of R&D seems like they went on a similar path for white (and we're going to start seeing a lot of it). Maybe black's getting some adjustments too.
Maybe the rules that Red & Black can't deal with enchantments is just stupid-flavor-driven and not actually good for game play? What if the game actually gets better when each color can do what it needs to do but might have to pay some additional costs in order to do some of those necessary things? We might find out here pretty soon.
The only problem is (as they found out with on-purpose colorshifted stuff like Damnation) you can't un-print stuff. Once you've done it, you've done it and the game can't really go back. (And I believe some those cards have definitely caused some problems in formats over the years.)
It does feel a little strange they printed this here and not in Theros..
