View Full Version : Nerf Sorrow, it's far too powerful

Earlier today I was using my shin'hare deck and joined a game against a blood deck. All game long I was pumping out battle hoppers and I was able to get more and more every turn. I wasn't ever able get anything else but I always managed to have a blocker for whatever my opponent could throw at me. Eventually I had nine quadrabillionjillion battle hoppers and I finally drew a buccaneer. Inspired by my Charles Barkley-esque rabbit commando I was truly ready to slam jam for nine quadrabillionjillion damage...

...and then my opponent played Sorrow. I mean WTF, it prevented all that damage, with just one card. Sorrow is way too powerful, and it must be a bug if it can prevent that much damage.

...

See what I did there, at some point it just gets absurd.

In fact, all the cards are OP. Let's just have a nice friendly game of Go Fish.

I was going to recommend Blackjack instead, but then I remembered about the aces. I mean, come on... one OR eleven? Talk about overpowered. Nerf!

All cards are OP and need a buff!

Haha, nice thread. If anything, sorrow should be buffed, just to piss people off.

And on a similar topic, atrophy should be buffed to -2/-1 or -2/-2. It isnt worth putting in a deck - it is less useful than sorrow and the card draw does not mitigate that fact due to it costing 4. Or it could be -4/-4 and temporary, with a card draw.
Eh, I am probably complaining over something that will perform well enough in drafts, but I just want to like Atrophy.

You know what card is way OP? Resource cards! If you have enough resource cards, you can play ALL the cards in your hand- and your opponent has very few options to deal with that.

It's a good Inquis counter, so worth sideboarding. Though, if you play a 2/0 Inquis, does it keep coming back and will its on-play effect still work? I might need to try this out...

On the topic of OP cards though, I think the Royal Flush should be nerfed. Not really fair that one hand can win you every single game of poker. Let's give my pair of 2s a better chance, right?

Inquis should still work, but come into play effects are broken right now when a troop has negative or zero defense.

And I wouldn't sideboard atrophy for inquis anyway - its more cost effective and more versatile to run chaos keys.

I don't know if it's bugged or as intended, since we don't have the full rulebook yet, but I can confirm that "on enter play" abilities don't trigger if you play a troop with 0 or less defense, it just goes straight to the graveyard instead.

Almost as bad as having 8 creatures on the board for lethal and seeing an extinction come out. Sadness all around.

Sorrow too strong.

You think sorrow is strong wait until you see misery.

Misery only works if you have Company in play though, so it's still pretty balanced.

Not to be confused with the similarly named Miser-y, where all of your cards cost 1 less so long as you only have one copy of each card in your deck.

Wouldn't that be Miserly?

Also, SO overpowered in EDH. Nerf!
