Letter to WotC--Best Hyped DS Card

    I am preparing to write up the letter to WotC concerning the "What is the best card in Darksteel?" vote. I wanted to get some numbers squared away before doing so.

    As I totally derf-derf-derf'd out on putting Skullclamp in the lineup, it appears that 2 of Skullclamp's votes were put in the "other" category before a wise moderator decided to add it in.

    For the vote results, should I add the "other" to Skullclamp? That would mean Skullclamp got 6 total votes, winning the CPA election.

    Skullclamp isn't just the best DS card - it's the best card in Standard. It's use is so universal that I think it should be banned.

    It has done one useful thing, though - it killed control. It's impossible to "control" someone when they're drawing 3-5 cards a turn. It yields such a huge card advantage for such a minimal cost that it really seems absurd to play a deck without it.

    And yes, their are lots of anti-artifact cards available to deal with it, but if I have to dedicate a significant part of my deck to deal with one potential card, that's the definition of "broken".

    Engineered is a card that almost single-handedly shuts down the clamp...

    as for adding the "other" votes for it - if they were for "it", then yes, they should be counted...

    :)

    Mention us liking the indestructible mechanic, and mostly, that they need to bring back bury as something that takes care of indestructible...:p

    I'll assume all votes for "other" were for Skullclamp, since that's all anybody mentioned as what their vote woulda been for.

    Engineered Plague. Too bad it ain't in Standard. Boy I do love that card. train, we keep mentioning it, they'll likely call us both addicted to it. The new coat, it seems... :rolleyes:

    I agree with your assumption that any "Other" votes are probably for Skullclamp. You should have told me earlier to add it in the poll 'cause I didn't do it... :)

    for some reason i was thinking it was in 8th... It's not...

    back to the drawing board...

    If I had asked you, Spidey, that woulda meant I was thinking... ;)

    And if my brain was active at all, I woulda remembered to put Skullclamp as an option rather than "other." Doh!
