Back in the day, they started nerfing color hosers because they were too binary/swingy.

For them to be playable, they either have to be crippling to their target or playable without a valid target. They moved towards the latter

Veil of summer was closer to the former, and some would say too much so. It's a 100% dead card against naya and a crippling blowout against dimir control

But to be honest, I have zero pity for control players crying that their counterspell was countered.
You did indeed stab me in the back. However, you are only level one, whilst I am level 50. That means I should remain uninjured.

I wish it could have been a little narrower though. Like at least only give green creatures the hexproof.

RIP my playset. I didn’t think it would get banned given how long it took them to ban Top a while back.

I had picked up three of them back when they were around 25 each. I was hopeful that it would, but wasn't counting on it for another announcement or two. RUG Delver was performing better than Grixis Delver with DRS and Probe.

Thank the maker. Oko needed to be hit with the hammer hard.

Once upon a time is a bit of a surprise but not... really...? It's a very very powerful card too.
