    I jumped the gun on that one. I thought that the thread was locked but glad it wasn’t. I invent was to involve an intellectual conversation about this action, and I’m glad for the most part it stayed that way. I believe names of cards should be removed and I’m sure they weren’t thought of that way and no intended harm was well intended. So they are trying to correct what they feel was a wrong doing on their post.

    The mire fact that this thread was locked shows no one knows how to talk about this issue which has been the problem for the last 100 years and still is today.

    These are all valid points and I’m glad it’s been well thought out responses and not attacks. Thank you all for sharing your opinions. In the end it’s up to us to make the change regardless of what a card says. But j understand their point by removing all references they might help make that change. I have enjoyed playing magic with anyone that is willing to play with me and I hope that’s the same for everyone as well.

    I unstated where all this is coming from, maybe if they changed the art it would resolve the issue. The card extreme prejudice can be remade with a different name if needed. Not sure anyone played that one anyways. But they were still debating other cards in the article. Wondering which ones they were referring to?
