Just use your card draws wisely, don't overextend, and then when the vote goes to Carnage, you have a full grip with which to rebuild your board. With this out, at some point the game will vote for Carnage so as to wipe the board (if, that is, it isnt destroyed before that time). Point is someone will pull ahead, and the opponent's of that player can vote to reset the board. Just play smart and take advantage of the stall/wipe.

@Lord_of_Gelectrodes: What, exactly, are you proposing we make indestructable?

I love this. Colorless one-sided Howling Mine are hard to come by. There's Staff of Nin, sure, but this is like Staff of Nin that will sometimes play more like a Nevinyrral's Disk or an Oblivion Stone. Plus, it is just a lot of fun having lots of voting at the table.

Coercisve Portal is one of the "Will of the Council" card that's actually better in multiplayer than in 1-on-1. At 4cc and requires a turn, Coercive Portal is not an efficient card drawing engine. If you want things killed, the vote likely will go against you also. In multiplayer, however, because everyone wants to "dethrone" the strongest threat, the voting likely will favor the mass destruction you need.

Still, the wait-for-a-turn is its weakness, and unlike Nevinyerral's Disk, you don't guarantee to kill anything, and at 4cc there are better draw-engine.

Indestructibilty for an incredibly expensive extra draw.

I first learned of this card by word of mouth, and didn't hear that it was a permanent. I thought it was a spell. Y'know, if enough people don't want a boardwipe than you don't lose card advantage. Nope. This is still interesting- is the risk of losing it worth the card draw? While it's scary to look at, it has about a rough chance of doing what you want. But when you have a small army and your opponents are all wary, you may regret playing this card.

Play in 1v1, draw a card every turn by always voting homage.

probably too hard to control without brago's representative

"But when you have a small army and your opponents are all wary, you may regret playing this card."

If you have a board position that everyone is worried about, then why would you play it?
