Oversoul - you can choose not to pay cumulative upkeep, you don't have to pay it until you run out of mana (or whatever other resource it calls for). The advantage was you could let it go away... unlike the caliph, if he's in play and your opponent turns the tables life-wise... you'll get killed by your own caliph. I agree that the Hall is more about constructed than limited... but, if a card is the bomb in limited and absolutely sucks in constructed, it's probably not going to win because it has some use. (that's not to say City in a Bottle is the bomb by any stretch... ) Spidey - would you update the sticky thread w/ the "winners", erm "Losers"... Homelands entry was Leeches. Thanks.
