    This is a great idea. The 'banned as Commander' question didn't have a place to expand, but I would like to see a number of the banned cards banned as commanders but legal in the 99. Rofellos is busted as a commander, but it would just be another good ramp card in the 99
    I feel that way about Erayo as well, although I neglected to vote for her in the unban category. I mostly want to see Gifts Ungiven unbanned. Prophet of Kruphix and Sway of the Stars as well, although I am less optimistic about those.

    Having both sites feels a bit awkward, since I expected MTGS to be closing down. I joined Nexus and really like it though. I'll contribute to both sites and hopefully one of them sticks. Any idea on which site WOTC or the EDH committee will frequent? I like using these communities to voice opinions in the hopes someone is reading.

    Good riddance to both these cards. Iona is awful, and I was sick of feeling pressured to play Paradox Engine in every one of my decks just to go infinite with it. The card literally served no other purpose than to slowly bleed the game to death.

    I’m also pleased with Iona being banned for the reasons mentioned above. It truly is format warping, and being deprived of certain strategies and answers is downside enough in a singleton format to go monochrome. The format doesn’t need Iona to exacerbate that, and lock players out completely to sit and fester for an entire game simply for playing a chosen color. Too harsh. Her banishment will finally allow decks to open up space for genuine strategies and fun interactions that don’t involve fearing one card and stifling deck building for the sake of just being able to actually play.

    My worst commander experience was watching a Defense of the Heart bring out an Iona I couldn’t counter and select blue. I’m sorry, but “stifle or lose” is too oppressive. Granted I could have countered defense of the heart itself, but that’s a harsh price to pay for allowing the Timmy creature deck some leeway to play its own combos, only to get handed the least gentlemanly play of all.

    Finally! Thank you thank you! I’ve wanted both these cards gone. At least Urza can be built in a more fun yet still competitive manner.

    Time to arrange my Want List:

    WHITE:
    Angel of Vitality
    Apostle of Purifying Light
    Brought Back
    Sephara, Sky's Blade
    Starfield Mystic

    BLUE:
    Boreal Elemental
    Drawn from Dreams
    Flood of Tears
    Leyline of Anticipation
    Octoprophet
    Tale's End

    MUTLI:
    Risen Reef

    ARTIFACT:
    Icon of Ancestry
    Manifold Key
    Mystic Forge

    LAND:

    I think this is the first time where my greatest wanted cards are actually not Blue. All the White cards on my want list are what I need most for my decks. My biggest Blue want, Octoprophet is only a common too. Nice.
    I forgot to mention I also want the Green card Shared Summons. A very good card for EDH, one I am very excited about.

    I'm happy it comes in non-foil if I decide to pursue it. Not sure right now if I will. Perhaps if it's reasonable?

    For me:

    1. Starfield Mystic - Amazing art, Theros themed, enchantment support in White, exactly what I love!
    2. Octoprophet - You know how I am about sea monsters
    3. Brought Back - Love the art, and the effect adds resilience to White and works with Planeswalkers to assist my Jaces
    4. Sephara, Sky's Blade - Legendary Angel for my Angel tribal deck, and it's a neat one too with great art
    5. Angel of Vitality - Lower CMC angel that is excellent for EDH with a lot of Lyra syngergy
    6. Leyline of Anticipation - Much needed reprint
    7. Flood of Tears - I admire the theme and using it to clear the board and drop Omniscience
    8. Drawn of Dreams - I like the art and effect, although I do wish it had been an Instant
    9. Lotus Field - John Avon Land art, Lotus themed land, first instance of Hexproof on a Land, and overall great card
    10. Risen Reef - There's something I want to do with this. Master of Waves? Hmm.

    Honorable Mention: Apostle of Purifying Light - This card... very interesting for EDH manipulation. It's on my radar.

    Eh, these really aren’t for me. Which I’m thankful for. Last thing I should need to want is more exclusive promos.

    The hell kind of hairstyle is that on Dawning Angel?
    The major reason it isn't in my list of wants, or being considered for my Angels EDH deck. I am not about to be here for that.
