What cards seem like they should be under close watch because of how much more they drastically improve in the 1v1 matchup?


The first one that comes to mind is Necropotence. It is as good as Yawg Bargain in head's up.


Skullclamp saw nuking in every format but Vintage. Then again, I think this would be pretty hard to break in this format before lots and lots of other cards Wizards have admitted were bigger mistakes.


Tinker is pretty amazing, but our fast mana not really so.

I'm not sure Flash has done enough in enough formats for me to *really* panic yet.

Any other specific cards people fear, specifically, that remain unbanned, that should maybe only be banned in duels?

Besides Islands?

The first things that come to mind are Goblin Welder and Disciple of the Vault, but I doubt those are as absurd in 40-life, 100-card singleton formats.

Oath of Druids, maybe?

I'd say Tinker and Skullclamp are definitely worth looking at.

as a general you mean ?

because, turn 5 or 6, when you have 3-4 cards in hand she's clearly less efficient.
