One point I think is missing is that white’s strengths are better at high powered tables than low powered. Many strong white cards are hated on for being “unfun”, which is generally acceptable at high powered tables. Also, spot removal is better when there are specific threats to answer, and not just timmy creatures played every turn to deal with.Vintage Cassette Not Old I’m A Classic 1939 81st Birthday T-Shirt My two cents. Precisely why white is viewed as low power in more casual formats, because it can’t do all the powerful stuff the other colours are allowed to. White is one of the best land destruction colours and it’s been hated out of existence This. So much this. White is bad in normal EDH due to the abilities that make it viable and able to compete with the other slices of the pie being softbanned at casual tables.

MLD doesn’t make up for lack of card draw, the actual biggest weakness of white in EDH. It’s not some magic cure all for white’s problems in EDH. MLD punishes a few types of decks, and especially casually constructed decks that have expensive mana curves and budget ramp and fixing. It is Vintage Cassette Not Old I’m A Classic 1939 81st Birthday T-Shirt completely miserable to play against if you aren’t prepared to deal with it, since it means you have to either play a game where you aren’t actually a player or concede whenever it resolves against you. “Each player chooses a number of lands they control equal to the number of lands controlled by the player who controls the fewest, then sacrifices the rest.”

The hero we need is the “land” part of [[Restore Balance]], probably on a 4-mana sorcery to replace [[Armageddon]]. WotC, please make MLD palatable. Let us punish land ramp without extending the game by another 20+ minutes. I think that would be palatable to me. Although abusable with splendid reclamation effects and Zuran orb/Sylvan Safekeeper, that has enough moving parts to not feel bad about the game winning consequences. Alternatively they could ramp everyone to that same number of lands. Vintage Cassette Not Old I’m A Classic 1939 81st Birthday T-Shirt Probably punishes decks running few basic lands.
