"If opponent doesn't concede the game immediately," really says a lot about this card.

Along with his 4x Darkpact, my friend used four of these as well in the Alpha/Beta days. He'd only play these if he was winning, but some games, thanks to the combo of Darkpact and the Attorney, he would walk away with 3-4 of your cards (the best ones had been taken before even winning of course). Evil combination.

I hate trolls who think they are hot sh*t because they play for ante and put others down for disliking it. It's extremely disingenuous and not sportsmanlike at all.

Ante is a bad concept. It completely eliminates casual play and turns every game into a fear fest because you might lose your cards. It is supposed to add excitement and suspense to the game because you might win a card, but I don't find stealing peoples cards much fun at all, especially if it was a close match or a really good game. Makes me feel wrong inside. It also discourages new or unskilled players from playing because they know they will probably lose. Even if they don't care if they lose because they just like to play the game, ante will make them care because something is at stake. Also, ante benefits all those arrogant rich kids who have the money to buy 300 booster packs and get all those Black Lotuses. Ante makes playing for fun impossible. Magic should be a casual, fun game t... (see all)

Ante is not stupid. It does take some chutzpah to play with Ante.

The reasons for it and against It are pretty much obvious. If you want to hold a special event that you organize by personally contacting 8 people who in a dusty room with bad lighting all agree to everything.....

"Saloon Magic" actually sounds REALLY fun and kinda scary for high-level play. Imagine winning would score you not just a intangible 'player score', but a REAL CARD :O

iMO, casual players should NEVER feel shanghaied or obligated to play ante, "Accessibility" is Very Important, and even in "Professional" League play, there should be non-Ante circuits to make sure people can find the level of competitiveness they are comfortable with...

However, I think that it would be REALLY, Freaking, COOL, if for certain very-high-profile events, the Top Eights, Semi-Finals, and Finals of the highest level events, yes I would happy if they brought Ante back to a CERTAIN part of the game. Maybe even only use it in Le... (see all)

Giving it 0.5 because ante is a stupid concept and I ended up getting 3 of these from boosters.
