I agree with mode, even if you hate a card doesn't mean its bad. This is by far one of the best one drops of all time.

The Disciple doesn't need infinite combos, just artifacts hitting graveyards anywere. Do it fast enough, or just drop more than one, and you win. Simple overpowered card, like many others from it's block, which had quite a few other commons banned (all artifact lands got the axe, mostly thanks to him and the fearsome monstruosity that is the Arcbound Ravager working together).

@GrimjawxRULES: In mirrodin block there was no effective way to stop Ravfinity from destroying people in 3-4 turns. A typical run of the first turns was something along the lines of
Turn 1 : Seat of the Synod, Ornithopther, Arcbound Worker
Turn 2: Vault of Whispers, Arcbound Ravager
Turn 3: Great Furnace, Frogmite, Thoughcast, Myr Enforcer, Disciple of the Vault
Turn 4: Myr Enforcer, Swing with Ravager and Ornithopter, pump whichever they don't block for 8, they lose 8 life, drop a Shrapnel Blast and it's 21 points of damage.

The issue was that there was no other deck in Block format that could even remotely begin to answer to Ravfinity's speed and damage. A lot of tournaments became a question of who's ravager could kill the other player first, and thus the game was no longer fun.

Poor guy shows up in New Phyrexia. And he ain't happy.

@feeble That would be because it is banned in tournaments.

P.S. They did not ban this guy or his best friend in Modern. Affinity will rule once again.

Do you seriously have to ask why they didn't do the same to Jitte when you "had to take my 2 out of my Affinity deck along with 3 skullclamps..." ?

@Axelle: I believe the problem is that without the coloured artifact lands, you can't just go 'I sac my board, you lose 1 life for everything that was sitting here. Oh, and since it's a cost, there's absolutely nothing you can do about it. U Mad?' It's still good, but at this point people would rather have Galvanic Blast, Thoughtcast and the like. It could see play... but somebody will have to find a new use for it.

Great card. Been on both sides of this shenaniganry it's fun and then not fun. In response to a few earlier comments about clerics and being evil... Let's not forget in onslaught block they got really evil. My friend and I built a mono black cleric deck that ate everything for breakfast, lunch and dinner... Kinda like bagel bites... On that note going to my freezer I'm hungry.

Better at direct damage than red will ever be.
