Yeah, seems kind of broken with anything that gives it Flash. Or, more reasons Academy Rector is broken.
Yes! Flash and Academy Rector can be a problem... How do we fix it?
Give it the Phage text (plus a modification)!"When CARDNAME enters the battlefield, if you didn't cast it from your hand during your main phase, you lose the game."
Neither Flash or Rector should be reasons to make a card a lot more complex designwise... The nerfed version is so innelegant :(
I agree with this. I will try one more time.
I think it should have a higher CMC and more colored mana requirements.
I think it should be "if you cast CARDNAME during your last turn" instead of "on". I would also make both triggers "enters the battlefield" triggers instead of "cast" triggers. It would still force you to put it on to the battlefield during your turn but would allow for more interaction with the card (both for good and for ill [Stifle anyone?]).
I wanted to make the first one cast so the opponent has a chance to counter it if they're playing counterspells.
