    They are not legendary and are disqualified......

    Some cards we want to make exceptions on, but you can't just start doing that. They have not eranred themselves in battle to be generals....otherwise they would be legendary :p

    Quote from Secularon
    Perhaps it's the antithesis of your personal concept of what consists of "fun", but please be aware, throwing this three letter word around as if it encompasses everyone's concept of fun, is overextending your Venn diagram into territory that isn't yours.

    My idea of fun, some other person's idea of fun, and your idea of fun most likely do not coincide. And there's nothing wrong with this. It's ok you like to do things the way you like to do it, and vice versa with anyone else.

    Fun is not a word you can own all to yourself and your version of it should not be pushed upon others. This is why I stay away from casual players and players who shun proxies. They have their core beliefs, and I have mine.

    I'd just like you to be aware of this the next time someone speaks up about something being "unfun". It's not a good argument. Ultimately someone is trying to hijack complete control and definition over a word with relative and arbitrary meaning.

    "I know what fun is, and you don't" - sums up this stance. Doesn't seem like a good one. Seems silly and pointless to debate who knows what fun is. It's like arguing over which comic book character can beat up who.


    A card is fun - Meaning: among the several archtypes of magic user, it is generally considered to be enjoyable to play with and against.

    Upheaval is not. Thanks Smile

    Why do you think Consecrated Sphinx is more powerful or more dangerous to the formats health then Survival of the fittest?
    I have seen the card help, even help alot, but rarely outright win a game.

    first i want to say Balance can 100% never be unbannded. It will without question, and without debate ruin the format. I think if people think otherwise it is more likely they have not played against this card often, and just really want to use it cause it has cool alternate art foils Grin


    1. Library of Alexandria The Price of the card is a fair point why not to allow it. As Seldon, the God Father of the format wants it to be playable by most...and this can harm that. The Effect is good, but it is not crushing in and of itself. This would make control better, but most the cards on the ban list should be banned...so if you are gonna start picking...

    2. Coalition Victory I mean...if you can pull it off....cool story bro. I suppose some jerks will run speed into general, lots of pitch counters and Duress effects. But it is not a hard meta to beat.

    3. Kokusho, the Evening Star Just not scared of it at all. Not much better then other combos (creature wise).

    I don't care how many other people think a card should be banned. What cards do you think make the formate degenerate?

    Blightsteel Colossus
    Gaea's Cradle
    Sorin Markov


    Interesting Choice, since only one of those cards is op. I guess it matters on your play group and how long you have been playing.

    1. Survival of the Fittest. By far the most powerful card, per it's price and easy of use.

    2. Mind Twist. Normally an effect like this would not be ban worthy, but i have seen this end more games then any other card.

    3. Intuition. I don't want them to, in fact i would be really sad, but it's one of the best cards in the format and makes combo nuts.

    As for people that mention Sol Ring, kinda shows you don't know what's up since you didn't say Mana Vualt.

    Sorin Markov isn't very good. He dose alot of damage, but EDH is won on dominating board state, combo, or hard locks. So he dosn't win alot of games by himself.

    The card is good, that is clear. It's effect is not dominating however. He is more like a Solem then a Titan.

    Really wish we had a city of brass effect. the flash back costs are so spread out it's hard to get the right value and actually have your mana.
