Well... Ritual is gone from extended and I'm about 100% certain it won't be reprinted in any future sets. I had originally thought this was a horrible thing, but as the shock settles and I look at what changes it will make... I think it was a good move. Ritual may be gone, but we need something to replace it! The key to the ritual was the blazing speed. First turn Necro and Negators are not very fun to play against... so we need a slower NOT weaker Ritual. What about this : Intense Ritual - Common B1 Instant Remove Intense Ritual from the game and get BBB or BBBB. Flavor Text : Uhm.. yeah. This card would be nearly impossible to cast on turn 1. It would also give you the option of taking BBB instead of BBBB if you are at risk of taking mana burn from the extra B. Feel free to tell me what you think.
