    MU looks like they'd be genuinely helpful, but I'm not sure sacrificing the Council's autonomy is the right move. If I can get something going, it'd be dedicated to the Mafia community. I'd be open to putting it on a separate domain as well; it doesn't necessarily need to be on annoraxgames dot com.

    If the Mafia community moves to another site, please have someone let me know via Discord; it's a bloody shame that Star Trek Myriad Universes 5 won't be able to happen here, but I'd very much like to run that *somewhere*. If Mafia has no home on the successor site, I'd be open to starting something myself to support the Mafia community.

    Will be interesting to see how exactly R&D rework/reword the card to be functionally identical but not take several minutes for each player to decipher a wall of tiny text.
    "When Dimensional Dungeon enters the battlefield, target creature phases out. That creature can't phase in for as long as Dimensional Dungeon is on the battlefield."

    No Oblivion Ring-ish blink trick with this one, though.
    Going to agree with this. As it would actually be the more elegant solution since phasing doesn't do ETB/LTB and tokens would still be fine if affected by this.

    Fun little trivia fact: https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/phasing-rescue-2005-02-21

    The suggestion for how it could work with phasing was suggested by WOTC in 2005 as:

    When Oubliette comes into play, target creature phases out. That creature can’t phase in as long as Oubliette remains in play.

    When Oubliette leaves play, the creature phases in tapped.

    If the secondary effect is prevented, The affected creature still phases in because it is phased out, just at a later date instead of instantaneously. If it were to be updated like with Void Nothing's suggestion, all it would do is simply not force the creature to phase back in as soon as Oubliette left the field.

    That's not a terrible idea, but it would limit design space should they ever want to do anything that interacts with phasing. I doubt they ever will, but they like to keep design space like that open. It'd also be a functional change, which they're loathe to do.

    I think something involving a variation on Skullbriar's template would be a better fit. I've shown how this can fit on a card within the text sizes they've been established to use (10 lines and 1 line break). It would never work on a card with a rare holostamp, but if it's reprinted at common or uncommon in a preconstructed deck product, it's a definite possibility.

    I'm so aware that this is an old thread, I just found out that on MTGO this is a $6 card and I'm confused why. I see that it mainly gets play in pauper format and with the Ox being used as an alternative I'm still confused. Would it be people buying it in hopes that conspiracy gets played online? Or is it that is the only way to get the card in the first place like the Ash Barrens that is another $5 card.
    Palace Sentinels appears to only be available online through Treasure Chests. I don't know what that means, but likely it has a low print count compared to the number of people playing pauper. It provides a unique effect that is very powerful in the right deck/matchup.

    It appears the be the only card of meaningful value in that deck. https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/pauper-kuldotha-boros-21706#online

    On paper the card is dirt cheap.

    This is correct; there's very little supply on MTGO because it was released only through treasure chests. The Conspiracy sets don't exist on MTGO; new cards that appear in Conspiracy and Commander sets and not anywhere else are only available through treasure chests.

    The recent spike was a response to the new chest distribution list, which removed Sentinel entirely from the rotation.

    It's a buyout, one I was shocked didn't happen a couple years ago. I wish I had more than one of those, I'd outed my spare playset a few months ago. Frown

    MemoryLapse reached his fourth suspension, with 20+ borderline infractable posts made while having two active infractions. These posts, if infracted, would have led to at least a fifth suspension as well. Upgraded to permanent ban due to the sheer quantity of problems.
