Proposal: Untouchable

Reached quorum 5 votes to 1. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 26 Jul 2018 18:08:07 UTC

Repeal the rule “Banned”.

Remove the “Speak Easy” card from the ruleset. If that card was in a Wizard’s hand when this proposal enacted, give that Wizard a random card from the deck.

Remove the “Drink” card from the ruleset.

Brendan questioned this during voting, and I think he’s right - saying “this is a list of cards which are X” without including any such list means that no cards are X.

But this is a lot of risky overhead for at best one minor card effect and at worst a major Card scam - by reintroducing repealed cards as being “cards” again, a card effect like The Prophecy’s “you may choose any card” will allow a player to draw a Banned card.

Maybe remove Drink tokens as well? I think removing Speak Easy would orphan them.

“by reintroducing repealed cards as being “cards” again” that’s not correct, Banned should hold a list of cards which are removed with the card prohibition or its clones. Cards repealed by proposal/CfJ wouldn’t end up in that list.

I was just using the word casually there. It’s still a problem that an apparently removed card could still be selected by any effect which casually referred to “a card”.

There is no such thing as a Drink card, there are Drink tokens. imperial

Tokens are cards:

“This rule contains card which are created by other cards for purposes of tracking information or for when using the played card is unfeasible.

The following numbered list is a list of legal token cards”

I like “banned” cards technically still being cards. It makes them harder to access, but still legal if you do things right.
