Would've been better as a Phyrexian walker... oh well. Is gonna be good after Jace rotates, hopefully some kind of superfriends deck pops up around him.

He's a'ight. Nice to have a colorless walker, finally. I agree with the previous comment on the art.

Reminds me of Nicol Bolas a bit...but colorless. This card will be a pain to acquire since every EDH deck will want it.

Shahrazad Buy, but not as pretty or as much fun. There was a reason she was banned.

A very powerful Plainswalker...and is COLORLESS!

Too bad there's a pricetag of 7 mana attached to it. It is slow, but not weak. You'd better watch out once this beastly card gets a few loyalty counters.

Issue I have with this, and I got this response from wizards of the coast after emailing them this question. If there is two minutes left on the clock, and you have each won one game and are on game three, and someone activates Karn's last ability with nothing but aura's and sorceries exiled under it, that is an act of stalling. But according to wizards, it ISN'T an act of stalling. Problem though, it IS stalling. You're restarting the game when you know there is no chance of finishing another in two minutes and three turns each. I've had someone do this to me to avoid losing against my two threats that either one was going to kill them on my next turn, and according to wizards his actions were not stalling.

Point, Karn makes it possible to legally cheat by making use of a technicality loophole to attempt to run out the game clock, and not just in the situation outlined above. You could also just restart at anytime with nothing relevant under Karn to try to slow down the match. According to rules this is not stalling when it actually is, legal cheating is still cheating. Is this not a loophole that should be closed?

hmm, that problems' a serious one.

maybe what wizards should do is create an errata for Karn, changing his last ability's text.

BUT, we've seen loopholes happen before and it doesn't really have a considerable impact on the state of the game. the opponent was simply trying to win in a different way making use of Karn's ability to win. you just have to find a way to deal with the Karn in play.

In my situation he is not making use of karn in an attempt to win. Restarting the game with a grave titan is a very different story. Restarting with nothing is not an attempt to win, it's an attempt to stall for time.

It's not stalling. Heck it would be your fault for letting him get to 14. This guys is pretty awesome. Some basic land acceleration and ta da! He is out in a blink and then ripping apart your opponents hand and their creatures.

That's not cheating, poor form, but not cheating. Draging games out to a draw is a d-bag tactic, but valid. Besides there is no real way to template a rule about karn that would not interfere with legitimate use. Suck it up and get used to an increased likelyhood of draws. It is infuriating, I know it's happened to me before, but sometimes people do rude stuff like that, deal with it.

Sure, it's my fault for letting him get to 14 when he starts at six. That makes a lot of sense. I agree people that do that are d-bags, and judging from the language of the last post they are not the only ones.

I love Karn
Karn has potential in every deck
He controls in great way

Now as to some of the past posts

yes Karn has that power, Its is not cheating
Its the way of the game
Learn to deal and stop crying about it
I do understand from having that senario. It was annoying
But I got the win cause I was able to kill in less then 2 min and 5 turn count

You are hating on Karn cause of one ablity
Your not looking at it as a whole


His art ehh but everything else is great

I'd stall the crap out of you guys, just for the fun!

On a more serious note though: awesome card.
