    As Core Set 2019 had only one Doble-Face card, Bolas, I also predict this set will probably have only one Double Face card the ascending of Urza as planeswalker.

    There are a lot of cards totally legal that are completely cancer to play against.


    I'm shocked nobody ever mention (not even the EDHrec 100 saltiest card) stuff like Land Equilibrium which can play effectively or even be more oppressive than Limited Resources which is a banned card. With all 0-1 cost mana dorks and mana rocks it's so easy to totally break the simmetry of the card. Same is true for Ward of Bones

    And that's why it's still banned. People will put Sway into lists as a "well maybe it'll make for an interesting story" card, and end up making everyone at the table miserable. Worldfire is a card that clearly communicates "use this to win immediately", Sway doesn't.



    This still doesn't make sense, because if "win the game immediately" cards are fine then they should unbanned also cards like Biorythm or Coalition Victory, also cards like Worldfire that cost tons of mana, that require a minimum of setup to win and just end games when resolve.

    Doesn't matter how you see it, the unban of this particular card but not others just doesn't make sense.

    I think that what they are trying to say is that World of Fire end games, Sway of Star doesn't.


    Yes I get it. And this is against the social philosophy of the format, as I tried to explain. Sway of the Stars could lead to interesting games. Worldfire never.

    I think the reason for the Worldfire unban, but not Sway of the Stars is that one is a simple "Remove Everything but decks from the game" and the other is "Let's restart the game, but at 7 life."


    The comparison really doesn't explain it. Even if opponent float extra mana before doing Sway of the Stars (which is exactly the same thing you can do with Worldfire and your general), the draw is still symmetrical and opponents still got a chance to interact with free spells. Also, game doesn't end immediately, 7 life x 3 opponents still means 21 lifes to take down, which is still a lot.

    So really, there's absolutely no logical and coherent explanation of why Worldfire was unbanned while Sway must be on the banlist.

    All of these, including Worldfire, are annoying, but by comparison, Worldfire is less likely than these others to make the game go on for another 3 hours.


    Worldfire just end games, exactly like a Coalition Victory and those cards were banned exactly for this reason, because ending the game out of nowhere is not on the social philosophy of this format.

    No, that was and always will be Primeval Titan

    don't give players with world fire any ideas


    Players already had those ideas in the exact moment the card was spoiled, which is why it was insta-banned and never been legal in first place.

    ah, damn it, didnt read the "total power" part but only the "any number" part. Ok, it's just cute at best now.

    Only guess is that you will have cards with the held mana but there’s barely any cards that can kill all 3 opponent with one spell (something that deals 7 damage to all opponents)


    But opponents draw too, and could draw even response (like Force of Will/Negation). With Worldfire, if resolve, its just so much easier to win and setup a game ending strategy. suspend with Jhoira of the Ghitu. Cast while you got antyhing trapped with any Oblivion Ring style cards. Float even just one more mana to cast a 1 red mana general.

    This unban is dementially nonsense. Of all possible banned cards that could lead to even a slightly more interesting gameplay, the unbanned the most unfun and game ending of them all.

    Is it only me or Moorland Rescuer is completely broken? This is one-side mass reanimator at just six mana. Ok, it must die, but its not that big hoop to do. This card is totally crazy in grave based deck.

    Why didn't they unban also Sway of the Stars? at least could lead to far more interesting gameplay than Worldfire.

    Damn you can't even debate.


    It's hopeless. It will just loop all over the same exactly rant and numbers and ignoring all your objections, as always. It's a total waste of time discussing with him

    WOTC cares about money now. They don't care about the game. Magic is dying.


    LOL. Dude, this is my last reply to you, because I see you're just looping the same rant over and over, no matter that everybody else telling you why you're wrong...
    Magic is definitely not dying. WotC has probably never made so much money out of Magic, and was so popular among players since it's inception.

    YOU will very probably not survive Magic, and one day abandon the game for one reason or another.
    But Magic will surely survive and still go on without you.
