🤔

A bold include. This card is a lot of things.

You could have gone for Balancing Act or even Magus of the Balance.

I want to say "balanced" is one of the few things it is not :)

I honestly don't know what this would be like in the current environment though. While at the time it made sense for it to be got rid of; is it now a problem? Maybe not, it's not like weenie decks that only need to play two lands are facingoff against combo decks that run no creatures any more.

I don't know, I wasn't sure if include it was the right thing. The doubt was between this and Armageddon

Ok, lol, well Armageddon is certainly it's own kind of insanity. Given all the other cards in the set, they both seem a bit out of place if you ask me.

Yeah, you're right. Do you have some suggestions? I'm looking for iconic cards that are also good in limited

How about a 'walker such as Serra the Benevolent? Cataclysm perhaps? Humility xD? Balancing Act is reasonable as well if you ask me - at least more so than Balance. Strangely all these suggestion are hitting the {2}{w}{w} cost...

This might be a fine opportunity to design a custom card btw.
