It's Friday, and as a bonus, it's new expansion day! Q Who, the eighteen (18) card expansion introducing the as a "beginner" deck is now available for free. The cards will be legal next week, so you've got a week to work out your first drafts of these new Borg decks. May your deck building be blessed by the Great Bird of the Galaxy.
Last week, we talked about banning cards. Thus I figured it's only natural this week to talk about the opposite: removing cards from the Ban List. Specifically, cards on the OTF Ban List. It's timely as well, becase James Heaney (BCSWowbagger) recently completed his research into the origin of every banned card. So today is the opposite question of last week: asking about removing cards from the ban list.
What card would you immediately unban without changes?
For this question, once again assume that you're in charge of 1E Ban List decisions for a day. You have the unilateral power to remove any single card from OTF, for any reason, but without any change. For this question, you're giving amnesty to a card and not going to make any changes to the card.
What card would you unban, and why? Maybe you really miss instant speed ships with What Does God Need With a Starship? Or maybe you think the collateral damage from In the Zone being gone is too high, and you want it back. Or maybe your deck desperately needs Clone Machine. Whatever the reason, the decision is yours.
Normally, removing a card from the ban list requires getting several people on board with the decision. In the case of this question, your power to spare a banned card card is unilateral. So what card would you immediately unban without changes and why? Feel free to be altruistic (for the game's overall health) or selfish (for your own desires).
Have a good weekend, everyone. Play some 1E, if you can.
