I didn't do the necro, so I am justified in posting this...

Yawgmoth's Will is pretty much completely insane. It's the swingiest card ever printed, and if it resolves you typically lose. We actually banned it for our local events and such because they're played in duels. It's not as bad in multiplayer because someone is usually playing blue or some graveyard nerfing stuff.

I'm not really a fan of Yawgmoth's Will in any way, shape, or form, so that colors my perception. However, Will was a problem in our local group in duels, and many people called for its banning, so that is what happened. While not as powerful as it is in Vintage and such due to deck construction rules, Yawgmoth's Will is still easily one of the 5 most powerful cards ever printed, so it's going to be under scrutiny. I have no problems with decks winning without attacking, believe me.

Oh, and without blue on the opposing side, Will IS more powerful, because there are a lot more blue cards that stop it than artifacts, or cards of other colors.

How long do you think it will be before Magister Sphinx from Conflux is banned. "Oh? did your life just become ten?"[/i]

Ok. My 2 cents. (that's my fault: tinker is banned in France)

So, it is a problem. But it's the same kind of problem as a tinkered sundering titan.

I agree with Token on that. I'll always prefer tinkering a Sundering Titan or the missing combo piece to go infinite, than putting a 5/5 flier that needs 2 more turns to kill.

If the Sphinx is shattered, sworded or naturalized, you have no more threat, and the opponent being at 10 life isn't really a problem for him unless you are playing a "beatdown-Esper", in which case I wish you good luck.

Token's comparison with Divinity of Pride is really accurate. It's basically a 8/8 flier lifelink for 5 mana and... nobody plays him.
