Top 10 Most Tedious Magic: the Gathering Cards


A few days ago, I rediscovered Ice Age all-star Chaos Moon. The first line of text—"During each player's upkeep, count the number of permanents..."—literally made me laugh out loud. Could you imagine playing a game of Commander with 100 permanents on the battlefield and having to count them all four times each turn cycle? Rather than playing Magic, you'd be playing some weird counting simulator. Chaos Moon starting me thinking about other cards that are generally fine as far as power level but are just incredibly tedious to play with in paper Magic, which in turn led to today's video: the Top 10 Most Tedious Magic: the Gathering cards! What other cards make people groan whenever they hit the table, not because they are too good but because playing with them is so painful? Check out the video to find out, and if you have a personal favorite tedious card, make sure to let us know in the comments!
