You ever tried playing at a bar? good luck being the guy on the end who has to attack the player five seats down.

I like the politics that can occur because of this. It can stop tokens and fast pace decks from finishing everyone and once. It also helps the player(s) who are falling behind board position wise and need protecting for awhile and turning them into your potential allay. However it can give other players a chance to win by protecting them from others who could deal with them but now can't because of this card.

I love goofy cards like this and Topsy Turvy for Chaos Magic (the precursor to Planechase). This fits right in with those types of cards. Ive been hoping for this effect for that format. It's interesting that this works so poorly with Star Magic though, in most cases making it impossible to attack your opponents. As for odd seating arrangements, the player turn order is the same if if the person to your 'left' is accross from you, so thats not an issue or really all that funny. And playing at a bar like that sounds awful without this card as you would.havr had this issue anyway. If people really start to fight over seats then roll fpr seating arrangement; this card doesn't make seats matter, that was always true.

Amazing in 2 player games. I recommend everyone puts four of these in their deck.

I dislike this card, not because it isn't fun or unique, but because it means people are going to have to fight for positioning their seats based on who is using what deck. Subgame anyone?

Also needs a ruling for weird seating arrangements :3

What I find amusing is that this card essentially puts a mana cost on one of the rules of STAR EDH lol.

Wait. not Star. Whatever. Anyway this is a really common House Rule, but to use House Rules as Inspiration for White cards is I think a good thing, not overly lazy, because this *will* have a genuine impact on the game and be worth casting and stuff, but it can also be Disenchanted by anyone who finds the rule becoming burdensome, including the controller even. AND, the other option for the direction of White "Rules" cards tends to be the much maligned "Catholic School Principal Angels"

Iona, Shield of Emeria
Linvala, Keeper of Silence
Avacyn, Angel of Hope shares equal amounts notoriety and popularity, but she's kind of In this category even though people like her more.
Angelic Arbiter is probably one of the most hated.

Iona is by far cry the most despised of these kinds of cards, but White has... (see all)

Such strange wording on this card...

So I know what this card means, but I thought of something that I can't figure out about it.

If I stand up, what happens? It DOES say "seated", so if we follow exactly what the card says, players not seated can't be attacked... right?

I'm totally gonna build a deck with 4 of these and go to a legacy tournament just so I can stand up at the beginning of each combat. XD

If you don't like this enchantment's controller's selection, turn your chair around and face the other way. If you do this in order to attack that player, I bet the others at the table will let you get away with it. Annoying.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
