I warned ICE in 1998 about this combo, they banned it on the spot (french nationals 1998). Looks like players like Sauron made them change their mind afterwards.
Another problem with getting the rules to work are the number of traditions based on things ICE said that they never got around to actually writing down. :)

Which incidently was also the last time it was seen in a tournament :lol:. But seriously, I've played couple GO's again the last years, and didn't see the deck come up. How much of a threat is it? It's not cool having a broken strategy, but if everybody just ignores it...

Otherwise, I got no problem with the 1x per turn fix, is fine. Option 2/3 I don't agree with.

I like preemptively fixing broken. If even one person is turned away from the game after playing against a deck in which they can do nothing, that's a loss we can ill afford.
