This was always a classic argument. I was recently having a discussion with DUke over on another thread about this: http://www.casualplayers.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&postid=178200#post178200 So there's the question. Old school undercosted powerful cards: Hypnotic Specter Dual Lands Lightning Bolt Swords to Plowshares Kird Ape Serendib Efreet Hymn to Tourach Control Magic Counterspell(??--it has been eliminated from the main game) Mishra's Factory Just a few off the top of my head. I've heard two opinions on cards like these all the way back to my first days during 4th edition. Those who cry foul, and go on and on about how "broken" and unfair these cards are, and people like me who say "Lightning Bolt go BOOM!" Talk amongst yourselves.
