These sort of cards show up in awkward discussions pretty often (remember that thread that went on for too many months?) Fact is, cards of similar power level to exist in every color, and are just a part of an old game being deep. The reason many people opposed "banworthy" status, is because most of us have played with and against ,, , ,, , , , , , , , , , , , , , so on, and so forth... for years.

There is no script that works to adequately describe what these cards do in regular EDH. No "sky is falling" scenario that is alluded to on some pretense of that even being unique or out of the norm. (and while we're at it)- exist on the same continuum of cards that scale from "Really Good" (like ) to "Rock You Like A Hurricane" (like -) and compared to - this card never quite lives up in terms of true inevitability (because, honestly nothing actually does.) This format cannot sustain itself by reflexively banning popular haymaker cards.
