The whole idea of the sort-of-mono-blue Blazing Shoal deck was to have: Blighted Agent
or Inkmoth Nexus
on the field and cast Blazing Shoal
but instead of using
you cast it for its second cost removing either Progenitus
from the game to swing for lethal infect turn 3. Since you only need to cast blue spells it only has blue mana access but at the same time has a number of big red spells to sac for Blazing Shoal
. It can theoretically win on turn 2 with little or nothing your opponent can do about it. Hence banning.
