Hello, I was wondering on why Preordain was banned in Exteneded and Modern but Brainstorm is considered legal? I have no issues with either, I am just curious as to why
Brainstorm is not legal in Extended or Modern

the reason why Preordain (and Ponder) is banned in Modern is that it makes combo too consistent, and Wizards doesn't like that

I understand why now, look at the cards, detemine next move, draw into next play, rinse lather repeat? I can see why they were cut. I was just starting out when Ravager Affinity was popular, what an scary time that must have been.
