Magic: the Gathering in the UK
That Ginger One said:
I disagree, regular Highlander doesnt ban Kokusho or Recurring Nightmare. But anyway you are really just arguing the toss with the banned lists, some cards are missing from one list, some from the other - the differences are not dramatic, especially in a 100 card singleton format (even with tutors).
The general provides an interesting dynamic thats lacking in regular highlander, and gives you a focus for the deck. It also means you don't just put the 100 most broken cards of all time together, but look to add otherwise unassuming combo pieces that work well with your general.
EDH is where it's at.
If we have to play EDH, can we play house rule-Nephelim count as legendary? Its fun, and they make fun generals..
