Biorhythm Discussion

SynergyBuild on What cards deserve to be …

Many players love cards like Biorhythm or even Paradox Engine yet, their favorite cards were banned, other people dislike some of the reasonings behind bans, and even many dislike the idea of bans at all in the format.

What do you all think about it? Should there even be any unbans?

By the way, to all of you on the forums, thank you all for the incredibly interesting discussions!

Also, Emergent Ultimatum is a new Tooth and Nail, and Warp World is also super legal xD

It's a weird banlist, also Shaman of Forgotten Ways is a better Biorhythm pretty much always xD

If Biorhythm is on the ban list Tooth and Nail absolutely should be. Of Sway of the Stars is on the list so should Worldpurge. But I'm more in favor of unbanning a few if the things on the list.

I've been playing my Angry Om deck, OMNATH CRUEL GRUUL for a while now and the top 5 cards I recommend are:

1) Stalking Vengeance, as a back-up damage dealer or to supplement Omnath.

2) Cavalier of Flame, does so much work all in one card.

3) Strip Mine, with your crucible effects, you can abuse multiple lands a turn and do a one-sided Armageddon.

4) Shaman of Forgotten Ways, he helps ramp out Om more quickly and his Biorhythm late-game will help you win.

5) Cavern of Souls, once people figure out Omnath is the focal point, they will want to counter him as he is cast, so Cavern will help you ensure he lands the table.

Good luck homie, I always enjoy seeing another angry Om.

I disagree 100% with the assessment that tutorless games are more fun MagicalHacker. That is entirely up to personal preference, and I prefer to play combos because it is great fun to win via a crazy combo and being able to rely on it in any given game. A tutorless combo deck just as well not be played in 100 card singleton because naturally drawing into your combo will hardly ever happen

Imo the banlist can be cut in half regardless. If someone wants to win with Coalition Victory or Biorhythm then by all means they should be able to. Primeval Titan is just a solid value engine. And don't even get me started on Paradox Engine... that being said, I understand that some things are on the list because it effects a different portion of the edh player base than me and if they need it out of the format for the health of the format, then so be it as long as it doesn't blatantly poo on an entire playstyle like your proposed tutor change.

Don't try to split it into 2 formats, that's not a viable solution.

Wrong or no communication is the problem, because of that some people think cEDH-players are just rich assholes who are liking to stomp other players.

But I think that Demonic Consultation & Flash are to really difficult cards atm. especially since Oracle is a thing.

For me it would be no problem to unban cards like Biorhythm, Iona, Shield of Emeria, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn & Paradox Engine. Commander-Ninjutsu/Derevi kinda effects, Eminence- and Partner-commanders are a bigger problem in my opinion.

Because of the high CMC those card are a lot easier to encouter in comparison to cards like Doomsday, Labman/Oracle/LabJace, Demonic Consultation, Tainted Pact, Flash & stuff.

AAAAND just for consistency and logic reasons: ban Gaea's Cradle because Tolarian Academy and Serra's Sanctum are banned, too.

I personally believe that none of those deserve to be banned, and that any player who seeks to ban them is being bitter about them; they are all powerful, but do not break the format in the way that cards that are actually banned would (such as Biorhythm , Primeval Titan , or the power nine).

Boza So far my goal with this thread was to see if there were any bans or unbans that were uncontroversial, and so far Stasis was mentioned multiple times for a ban, no one really said it shouldn't, while Coalition Victory , Biorhythm , and Sway of the Stars also seem okay to unban. I want more data to confirm this, but this is a start to see which cards are said should be added or removed most often.

I don't plan to use this info for much, but perhaps it could help others.
