the banned card you are glad it got unbanned - Single Choice
Quote from Mortal Coil »Sword of the Meek was the most hilarious unban. People were on tinterhooks about how broken it would be, only to find out that it wasn't even that good in the context of that meta. It also helped pave the way for more interesting unbans, like JtMS and BBE.
Quote from headminerve »My fav is Sword of the Meek because I really enjoy playing it in UB Tezz, especially with Kaladesh being released soon after and allowing brews to improve the Sword Foundry combo.
I think Valakut brought sme frustrating moments in my experience of Modern, so it's not the most enjoyable to me, even though it had a big impact.
Jace is very symbolical, but I prefer to play it in legacy. In modern it doesn't bring me no excitment.
Also it doesn't hurt that I sold 800 play sets of the cards once it was unbanned. Grin That was my biggest 1 day payday in Magic. I made almost as much as I make in 2 months at my regular job.
*Actually I wanted it to be good in Modern. Tested the snot out of UB Tezzeret when it was unbanned, only to find that it lost to my other decks. Not a good place to be (I calculated it's win percentage in my testing to be 40%) Ugh. So, my actual reason for enjoying this unban was tri-fold.
Sword of the Meek makes a powerful, but slow, combination with Thopter Foundry. This combination was part of a format-dominating deck in the Extended format that Modern replaced. However, another element of that deck (Dark Depths, used with Vampire Hexmage) is also banned. Sword of the Meek might enable some slower combo decks, perhaps of the combo-control variety. It could be used as an alternate win condition in Lantern Control, which is powerful when unexpected but not currently a large part of the metagame. To allow for an increase in the number of controlling combo decks in the format, we are unbanning Sword of the Meek.

Don't mean to hurt feelings, but this one may take a while.
but the card I'm glad it got unbanned is Jace, the Mind Sculptor.
