Quote from Ritokure »Clue #3 seems interesting. What kind of drawback could balance a Worst Fears for all opponents and in a permanent's Continuous effect? My first thought would be something like Underworld Breach, aka. a permanent with a spell-like effect that sacs itself after a while, but maybe it's something super narrow, like "You control your opponents while X is being targeted by a spell" or something.

Quote from soramaro »I knew that I'd be painted as some curmugdeon who tries to take other's fun away for this. However, that's not actually the case. I just don't want Magic to become the TCG equivalent of Super Smash Brothers. Of course I won't police people on this - if it gets too much, I'll just quietly leave.
Quote from user_938036 »There is no slippery slope fear here. There is only the lack of confidence that Wizards can balance cards such that they don't accidentally print a card far stronger than intended and a lack of confidence in their willingness to reprint indemand cards at a reasonable pace. Both of which are supported by history.
