I don't think there are any cards like that. There are things that prevent you from activating activated abilities, things that increase their cost, and things that counter them, but I don't think anything triggers from them specifically. There are things that trigger from targeting, so that might be relevant, but I can't think of anything that triggers from targeting a player. I'm almost positive there's nothing that triggers from damage being prevented.

But sometimes you ante a dark ritual.

I pick Skull Clamp. Its ridicously borked if you build around it, but otherwise its just really strong. It can  be fun in casual.

Ritual is still pretty cheap.




+1

Also, to the Darkpact deck, 4 rits is better. I have two dozen dark rits, and my friend has a binder full.

Attacking the darkness since 1987, turning creatures sideways since 1994.

Regarding the Dark Rituals, I'd say yeah actually the 52 land version works. Wins the mirror-match versus 56 land. I've played for ante many times, it's sort of fun...

All my favourite cards under current rules are banned. So I'd revise my pick to be almost all of them.
Black Lotus.

Someone had to say it...

I don't post much anymore.

Of course, when the Lion eventually becomes banned like the Ape was, I'll have a new favorite for this thread. ;)

Dream Halls for me.
I go with [C]Time Walk[/C]. They had to more than [C=Time Warp]double[/C] the cmc in order to balance it.
Gush maybe, because I like using it with Fathom Seer and Sakura-Tribe Scout with landfall junk.

I don't think Dream Halls is banned in any format.

Another vote for Gush.

Strange. Click on the card and go to Gatherer and click on the Sets & Legality tab. Either the Gatherer entry is out of date, or it was accidentally left off the 1 OCT 2011 updated list.

Trying to help "I'm original" people build better decks is self-sabotage: Good advice will inevitably be ignored because someone did it before. The gist of Magic is going to MWS/MTGO, playing Island, Ponder and watching the opponent ragequit.

What's your favorite card that has been banned in any format?


It was, once upon a time, banned from a format; therefore, Dream Halls can be nominated here.

Nope. According to the most recent list I can find on a quick look, Cursed Scroll is the only card banned in Tempest Block Constructed. Not that anyone plays block constructed.

Attacking the darkness since 1987, turning creatures sideways since 1994.

Dream Halls is banned in Lorwyn block constructed though.

But by using that logic, you can nominate any card.
