Quote from cryogen »I'm curious to see what the format would be like without DEN or Prophet (not necessarily both at the same time). Before Prime Time was banned the community was really divided about it just like we are now, and once it got banned a lot of people voiced their opinion that it was a stupid ban. But after a fee months without PT people realized that the format was more diverse. I'm curious if we have a similar scenario with Prophet.
There is pretty much 0 of both of these cards where I play. They'd just die from spot removal before anything crazy happens.
Also regarding the low-mana wins with gifts ungiven, you could grab hermit druid, lightning mauler, unearth, and noxious revival. It only costs 5 mana total. (This discussion was a bunch of pages back)
