I think making cards that are staples (or very useful) in multiple formats isnt really the correct direction for the game... just my opinion ofcourse
A game needs a constant supply of new players in order to survive. Nothing puts off new players more that entering an new online game and getting curb stomped by everyone and the *perception* that the gap between them and the older players is impossible to close.
the banning of staples is horrible for new and future players of UR
the problem with banning staples that have multiple format use, is the older players own them and can get away with using them to manhandle new people without any limitations.
bans address some of the gap, since it either prevents us from using them, or "punishes" us for trying to use them (in DTs) to beat up newbies. We have DM T2, Survivor
T2, and DM T1 formats we can use them in. And new people have rooms they can be safe from the monsters they cannot afford.... well except from Jackie Cr
-- cause -2 points is not enough to stop us from using her.
Some will likely say, "we all started somewhere". Correct, but when i started, the most expensive card was the big blue Ulu Watu
at 30000 clintz. Vickie Cr
was just announced but could be had for about 50-60k.
