Please ban Alrund's Epiphany
I have been playing since beta and there is no combination I have hated more than Epiphany/Emergent. I will literally just quit a game if I know it is this deck. Cards that give you an extra turn have been a perpetual problem. PLease, please, please ban Alrund's Epiphany.
+1 for banking this card. Platinum and diamond ranked is now an endless procession of these decks, forcing you to either join in or play a deck that's a hard counter. Wouldn't mind if the games didn't have 0 player interaction until the end.
who the **** created this monstrosity of a card.
I would like to RNC them.
Guys its been like four months of diamond and mythic players getting four to six turns in a row. Ban Alrund's or Galvanic already. It has gotten to where I am just scooping like three of every four matches against exactly the same broken deck and its super exhausting and frustrating. Nobody wants to be countered for ten turns over and over to have their opponents win con be to get 4-6 turns in a row, it is not fun, and unfair to anyone not running these two cards. Listen to your players, look at the comments, fix this please. This shouldn't be this difficult. Avid MTG player for over two decades and this sucks.
And please, no more extra turn cards ever. EVER.
Alrund's Epiphany has made standard so polarised. Either you play it or you play mono green/white. Or you play some interesting brew which can win against mono green/white but auto concedes to the Epiphany decks. I'm sure I need not mention how awful it is to have your opponent take 5 turns in a row. This completely destroys the design of the game by reducing interactive gameplay, negating resource management, moving tempo and boardstate to the irrelevance bin. I would like to for my in game choices to matter which I feel they don't at the moment. I would like Alrund's Epiphany to be banned so there are more than 2 archetypes in the meta. Standard is getting really old really quickly. I, as many others, am now auto conceding to these decks.
Why wizards you keep creating such cards? I have unlimited times that oppooents casted 3 epiphanys with turn and turn and turn again. It s really boring playing against something like that. I returned to mtg after 2 years and the fun is worse than ever. I thought you have promised no more extra turns will ever printed again.
Please BAN Alrund’s Epiphany from the game. It in most cases means instant win. I managed to win against this only when opponent clearly got flooded by lands and could not cast any spells. Copying this card or combination with Hullbreaker and/or Lier is just insult to injury. To have change you must run decks which are narrowly dedicated to run against this or use same strategy. Please do not let this card rot the game like Ugin which ruined few prvious rotations. Mana cost is not argument here for long time since we have ramp and decks using those cards are made to last until I WIN CARD is pulled.

This whole deck is ********. No more extra turn cards ever !!!! Put this **** in historic where it belongs. Fire the *** that developed it and the POS that approved it they have no business designing games. This being in standard is a joke
With Hullbreaker, that miserable land, and all the cards to copy this stupid pos card, backed up by counter magic and control to make certain Alrund’s Epiphany goes off.. Utter garbage! If I wanted to see this trash I’d play historic format! Standard isn’t even fun anymore! Just keep breaking the game, and expecting players to shell out loads of money to find ways around R&D’s carelessly egregious mistakes. God forbid someone would want to make a werewolf deck or a vampire deck in Innistrad (or any theme deck in current standard) and then run into this Izzet wall over and over.
If they aren't going to ban Epiphany, then stop printing new "Copy" spells. Unless you specifically build your deck against this combo, there is enough other Blue cards to stop you. With addition Hullbreaker, Lier and Hall of the Storm Giants, it has gotten even worse.
I can't deal with this pos card anymore. I think I'm finally done with MTG
I still can't believe this has not been banned. Rather than inventing a whole new format all they needed to do was ban one card. Alchemy just introduces more stupidly complicated and cheap feeling cards rather than just balancing standard.
When this card is chained with Galvanic Iteration players can win a game from having 1 health and defeat an opponent with full health without allowing opponent to untap. It's stupid. Playing against these decks almost feels like playing any other game and encountering a game breaking bug.
Taking extra turns is a broken mechanic to begin with, but allowing a 2 mana spell to duplicate it is some of the worst game design I have ever seen. The birds are just an extra slap in the face to any player who doesn't want to shell out wildcards to copy paste the championship decks.

This card alone is making me contemplate uninstalling again. I stream and the cheese with Alrund's is so bad that I am going to quit playing MTGA and streaming it because WotC is a POS company that can't manage its product properly. Good job driving off your customers because you are too afraid to admit you made a mistake.
BTW, I was Mythic ranked 54. I am not a bad player. Every other game is against Izzet Turns cheeseball matches. They are not fun. The card has ruined the game. Galvanic Iteration into Alrund's, rinse, repeat, cheese to a win when they were losing. Over and over and over and over until the rest of the MTGA player base has left and the only thing left is toxic Izzet players.
Please look at this, game moderators. This is also making me want to quit. I've been playing the physical cards since the mid 90s but only recently got into the app. Since then (about 3-weeks), I've already spent about $300 in packs and releases. But, I'm not going to keep playing if this card isn't banned because it's too cheap, and I'm encountering it in at least 30% - 40% of matches now.
quitting cuz WOTC failed to ban Alrund's Epiphany. GG
This card is the sole reason that I will not spend another cent on this game. I usually buy the mastery pass with every new set release, but until this card (and future cards like this one) don't exist in the game I'm done. This is the epitome of anti-fun and is overly abused. Get rid of **** like this.
I just left my LGS, and everyone there (60 people tonight) have deleted the MTGA app because of this card. The card alone is not OP, it is the fact that it can be copied and placed in a deck that literally counters every other spell someone attempts to play.
I know it has turned off at least 20 new kids who came into the store hearing all the veterans complaining how the game is broken because of the same style deck, match after match, after match.
Never though leaving a card in the game would cost your company thousands of dollars...
Just gonna say, it feels like Alrund should fit the criteria for a banned card. It literally makes me quit the second I see it. Gameplay suffers and I’m not a fan of literally watching for half a dozen turns. Please consider banning.
I cannot believe this hasn't got more votes... It has completely ruined the game for me. And now not knowing if a ban is coming or not I cannot use my wildcards. I can use up my precious few rare wildcards to simply join the Alrund band vagon and then see it banned by mid november...or I can just stop playing altogether.

This card is VERY broken, especially when doubled with Galvanic Iteration and in combination with Ashmouth Dragon.
