    I agree with Gizmo. SplitSecond is just a reintroduction of Interrupts. All older interrupts are now Instants, and certain Instants can now become effectivly Interrupts... except that you can't interrupt a new interrupt.

    With interrupts they were attempting to make the game a lot more convoluted than it should be, so they changed it back. By adding a keyword ability now it is a bit horrible. The original playtest wording for Krosan Grip was "can't be countered by spells or abilities" just as with Last Word, but it became a new keyword mainly due to the popularity of Time Stop and now is thusly a mini-godlike keyword.

    Interrupt though being an ability. The original interupts were types of spells. The Inturrupts,,if you want to call them that, are still instances, with the interupt type ability.

    And no hooked on phonics did not work for me.
  5. Nightstalkers Creature — Nightstalker

    Anyways, on gaia they're arguing about how this card is crap because it denies card advantage.

    Well with that. It's an end-all ability. The ability is great. Let's see it paired with something powerful.

    Like Interdict?

    *feels a reprint in his bones.

    Thought this would be of interest to... well, myself. There's been a quick discussion on the newsgroup about whether Lotus Bloom currently works. Because the card has no mana cost, the rules say it can't be played as a spell. The same thing applies to Evermind. So what happens is that the last sentence of the Suspend ability doesn't work. As a result of this, I've also been informed that my assumptions about the Golden Rule were wrong. The Golden Rule is powerless against rules that specifically use the word "can't".

    Same here, although I've seen the card and I'm not a HUGE fan of it.

    I think the whole of WOTC site is down. I can't get to magicthegathering.com at all...

    Well for those that don't know, here's the card

    Buyback - 2WW
    Gain control of target creature of an opponent's choice that he/she controls.

    That's a rough wording. I don't like it. You don't get to pick the creature and it's expensive. I don't like it. But, I've been wrong in the past.

    It's also white?!?! Usually "take control" abilities are either primary blue or secondary red...

    It's modeled after the "Preacher" Card from The Dark.

    Ah. I thought the "new color wheel" realigned that kind of stuff, but hey...

    So white gains an old ability back, but no cheaply. Then again, blue usually also has to pay a lot for such an effect. This is certainly something that surprises me.

    I'm not sure if I like this card...
