Magic the Gathering cards banned for 'racism'

in #informationwar4 months ago (edited)

So......here I am really wishing I still had my old stash of thousands of MTG cards that I used to HEAVILY play back in the 90s and a bit into the 2000s.... I still have a couple boxes of the junkier ones....I will of course, be going through it very carefully and making sure I don't have any of these, soon to be, very valuable cards (just my hunch)..

One of the cards I already know I have at least 5 of, is the 'Crusade'.
Here is a list of the now banned cards:

"The list of now-banned cards is: Invoke Prejudice, Cleanse, Stone-Throwing Devils, Pradesh Gypsies, Jihad, Imprison, and Crusade."

This is just, beyond ridiculous. I just don't have any other words at this time sorry. Things are going to get more ridiculous very soon I am sure...

Hang on to your cards if you have them. I see them going up up and up!

Indeed.

Time to start burning history books and movie archives.

What's that old saying, "something, something... doomed to repeat it"?

The whole point of MTG and most other games is a virtual "battle to the death".

That doesn't seem to qualify as a "positive message".

WAR = HATE

Cherry picking these specific cards seems to be completely missing the point.
