    No, there's actually a bunch.
  • A lot of older white cards destroy enchantments, but seems like nowadays white gets artifact or enchantment removal(Decommission, Fragmentize)

    I know, I was just being humorous about it being a common instant speed AOE that could be free.

    Woah, thats a lot of words! XD
  • Looks like Alanis, Natural Leader has been declared winner. I'll get to making the new bracket at once. 2 notes on that:

    1: Can someone else please provide the images? Getting the images of the cards takes a lot of time, and though my time has opened up a bit, I'm still pretty busy.

    2: I don't want to remake the past bracket, so I hope you don't mind if I start the new bracket from this round. If you really want me to, I still can, but I'd prefer to start with this round.

  • @Gelectrode and atleast I personally abstained from voting brackets that had my cards in them, since I felt like that would be show of good sportsmanship. But I am pretty sure that voting your own cards is not against the rules.

    @Glasseschan, thanks for saying that. I voted initially because I was unfamiliar to how everybody else was voting, but when I saw that everybody voting abstained from voting on their own cards, I pulled out my vote. I am sorry if I gave te impression that I have poor sportsmanship.

    Just for reference, here is why I voted for Loamhold Campion:

    • Eradicator Priest is a very strong card that is certainly overpowered. It is clean (if temporary) removal supported by a hefty 4/4 body that probably has protection from most of your opponents spells.Think Thought-Knot seer except harder to kill and harder to recover from.

    • Not only can Erasicator priest kill creatures, but it can also get any non land permanent. This would make it much more dangerous and effective.

    • I like to judge composite cards by looking at their components. Eradicator priest would be a combination of Oblivion Ring plus Watchwolf plus a restricted Pentiarch Ward. That's 8 mana and 3 cards reduced into 1 4-mana card. Quite powerful in my opinion.

    I hope that helps!
  • @Gelectrode and I hope that you didnt feel like I was accusing you of bad sportsmanship, since that wasnt my intention.

    I also want to compare Eradicator Priest to recently printed card from Amonkhet, Angel of Sanctions. Both of them are oblivion rings with bodies with some differences.
    Eradicator Priest: costs 1 less mana, protection.
    Angel of Sanctions: +0/+1, flying, embalm.
    So yeah, we can see that oblivion ring with a body and some benefits is something that Wizards print at a similar manacost. But I also want to point out that the protection ability makes Eradicator Priest to be harder to remove, and that makes the Oblivion Ring part stronger, so Eradicator Priest would be probably balanced at 5 mana.

    Judging cards by their components is not wrong, but when so similar card is printed by wizards, it is easier to judge cards by setting that card as a base level, and then figure out pros and cons.

    Also, Gelectrode, Eradicator Priest is 3/3, not 4/4( pretty sure that is just a typo though, since you talk about watchwolf being one of Eradicator Priest' components, and Watchwolf is a 3/3)

    Well Eradicator Priest has atleast succeeded in making people discuss about it
  • @Glasseschan, excellent point with Angel of Sanctions. But I do agree with you that Eradicator Priest should be 5 cmc.

    Yep, the 4/4 was a typo. I corrected it initially, but my computer blipped out and the edit wasn't saved.

    @Beeswax will probably like our discussion
