TypicalTimmy: I think your trigger does not work as you expect. This is far too easy to play on turn 1 (half 0 creatures 0), so you can ALWAYS play this on turn 1's second main. Even if it were to enter tapped, a repeatable Black Lotus for 2 life, even with the colours preset is too powerful to exist.

Path of Champions


When Path of Champions enters the battlefield, any opponent may reveal a historic card from their hand. If a player does, tap Path of Champions.

: Add , or .

Create a card that is designed to trick players who are new to draft--i.e. it looks powerful on its face, but you should never, ever draft it.

True story that happened to a very close friend of mine when we were all in College living together in a Frat House.

Dave scored a Black Lotus back when they were going for around $50 (1995?) and decided it would be "cool" to put it on our fridge (sleeved) with a magnet holding it in place.

No-one else in the house thought that this was a great idea but Dave was adamant that it was the best thing ever. Obviously it drew a lot of attention and when people came over they would be like: "Wow! You gotta Black Lotus on your fridge dude, that is SO epic" etc..

So we have a Keg Party the next month and, sure enough, the next morning the Black Lotus was nowhere to be seen. I'll never forget a very hungover Dave desperately yelling: "It might have fallen under the fridge! Help me move this f**king fridge man!!"

For the was black bordered - either Alpha or Beta.

Additionally, you can go with the Canadian Highlander (or Australian) version of "restricted" list. Canadian highlander is 100 card singleton format where every card legal in Vintage is completely legal in the format.

How they deal with power level is that every powerful card has points attached to it. For example, something powerful like Black Lotus is 7, while something cool but not so powerful like True-Name Nemesis is 1 point. In your deck you can play cards that are no more than 10 points total.

For example, if you want to run Flash (3 points) + Protean Hulk (7 points), you cannot include any other card from the points list in your deck.

You can certainly make this Modern-only, remove the singleton nature and call it a format that will be easy to determine whether a deck is legal.

goblinguiderevealpls... I mean, Black Lotus and Time Walk and Balance are also on the banlist. I think they will never be unbanned, whereas prophet has a chance.

Biismuth on FBB Black Lotus?

When I was young, I played sometimes with magic card of my dad, looked at them and tried to understand the rules. I can remember now a card that I had in my hand and found it realy bad because it "only" give mana and isn't a big creature, and I'm not sure but I think that maybe this card was a Black Lotus. I start playing magic recently, so I try to find my dad's cards, but unfortunately, I didn't find all the card, and sometimes I discover a card somewhere in my house. I know that all the collection is french black border card. But among all the card I recover, guess what, no Black Lotus. So I want to know, did the Black Lotus reprint in FBB or not? Because when I searched some picture of Black Lotus, I saw no picture of a FBB one. So, does it worth to search this card on my house or it's just my bad memories, and Black Lotus in FBB was never print?

I saw your post on your rules question mentioning you did not know how to link cards. Here's a brief intro, just so you know moving forward:

For cards use double brackets:

[[Black Lotus]]

For other players, use the following:



For decks copy and paste the red part first:
