Quote from Pokken »You know about time warp, capture of jingzhou and temporal manipulation right?
Quote from Gashnaw II »Nexus of Fate
In most cases I would not want to address a card like this but I feel it is probably tad more powerful than what should be allowed. I have actually gone infinite with it since it was the last card in my deck. I would draw, play and then get an extra turn. This allowed me (Having no deck aside form that one card, to win the game by having infinite turns. paying seven mana to make sure I keep getting to play and win. Scourge of Valkas and Dragon Broodmother.
This card need to be banned or at least heavily discussed. I run it because players at my LGS do. I would love for it to be banned, as I have cards I would love to squeeze into my deck. Right now it would be stupid to remove it as while i was presenting one scenario in which i won because of constant casts, i have won just because of the next alpha strike. I Managed to alpha strike with My dragon and draw it to cast again and get another alpha strike. (With The Ur-dragon and Kindred Discovery, and a few dragons, (About 8) so I was drawing 16 cards a swing. I was running low on cards in deck so i was getting it over and over. (luckily i won before i lost.)
It is a card that needs to be looked at. Is a recurable/reusable time spell something that should be looked into?
Quote from Pokken »The yard combos are much easier to set up and the cheap warps work better with seasons past as well.
Scepter mystical is fine it also combos with beacon of tomorrows for a measly one more mana. So nexus is not really doing anything we haven't seen before.
Nexus is not on anyone's radar period.

Quote from Dunharrow »Nexus was definitely a mistake.
However, being the last card of your library puts it in the same area as Laboratory Maniac, which I would say is far from banning.
Quote from Pokken »RIP/Helm exiles, so I doubt this would work there.
Quote from Pokken »Good catch. Man, that replacement effect stuff is really sloppy. My quick reading of it was it was triggered like the Koz.
regardless, i don't think this thread goes anywhere without a comparison to the banlist criteria. That's pretty much the baseline for every ban discussion.
