Quote from Kelzam »I appreciate healthy debate and discussion over the format. BUT, it gets a bit ridiculous seeing months and months of discussion of the same handful of vocal people coming back and posting new anecdotal stories to try to crusade to make their case when the entire rest of the format has settled fine. Especially considering this card has been out in the wild for... *looks up the release date of Aether Revolt* ...almost 3 years, now. Because that's not enough, the argument is now "It's getting worse! New cards are being printed!" ...And? How many threads pop up here every set with a kneejerk reaction about the supposed power level of a card. Simic Ascendancy anyone? Narset, Parter of Veils? Razaketh, the Foulblooded? Please. Give the sensationalism a rest.
Take a quick look at how long Sundering Titan was legal. Think about how it hits ban criteria. Do you think just because it went for so long it suddenly got worse?
Consider a bunch of people actually have issues with PE, but don't post here.
Yes there is, and always will be kneejerk. Panharmonicon was one from Revolt, but PE has actually been doing bannable stuff. You certainly do not have to discuss it, but please don't turn people who are into something else.
Dies to removal will always be a terrible argumentQuote from Muspellsheimr »Paradox Engine is a 5 mana artifact that does literally nothing without both 1) an established board presence that benefits from untapping, and 2) spells to trigger it. It utilizes a triggered ability, and can be responded to.
The card is a very strong enabler for a few, specific types of decks, and borderline unplayable everywhere else.
If the card has been causing problems at your table, and you have still been unable to figure out how to deal with it, Paradox Engine is not the problem.
You disliking a card is not valid grounds for banning.
