Inkeye's point - which I agree with - is not that they'll just find other replacements for Iona; it's that they'll just find other ways to be an annoying prick to play against.

Sure, you won't be playing against Iona, but your game experience will still be the same ol' suck fest.

It might just be a suckfest with and . Or and . Or . Or any number of other things.

And you're not reading mine (or Inkeyes) where we're not trying to prevent one specific encounter - all you do by doing that is treat the symptom, not the disease.

You're always free to not play when Iona shows up, and pretend you lost to something else.

To be fair, I don't get the idea anyone here thinks you're an idiot.

Your point that it is sad when you spend big bucks on a card and it turns out to suck/frowned upon, but would banning Expropriate make owners of foil Expropriates happy? It wouldn't either. The last few months I've read an article by Sheldon and one by Bennie Smith on what cards you probably shouldn't be playing; maybe that is something that needs sequels? Maybe it is something we as a community should promote? I'd rather have that than some humongous ban list... (and yes, that is mainly because it would spoil my chances of getting Recurring Nightmare unbanned).
