Please fix or remove Mind Control

Posts: 7
Every time I play against a priest deck, all my top creatures stay in my hand for the entire match. The spell has recently been changed from 8 mana cost up to 10, which is a good start. How about limiting the duration, or making it possible to be silenced? Shadow word death can kill any large threat for only 3 mana, isn't that enough? 2 SWD and 2 MC nullifies both my Boulderfist Ogres and my Ironbark Protectors with no counter what so ever. I have seen this issue before, Protoss Replicant anyone?

1. Not all priests are running Mind Control.
2. If you want to play your big minions, include ways to control/remove them in the event that it does get Mind Controlled.

I always keep Mind Control in mind when I play against a priest, and just don't play my more powerful minions until I bait out the mind control or have removal in my hand, or I'm doing well enough that if he does mind control my minion, it won't stop me from kicking his !@#. You cannot use the same strategy against every class.

MC simply doesn't bother me.

It'd be cheaper if you only had it for a couple turns. You sure you want that?

Chill. There are other cards that need your attention if you hate this, like Sylvanas, MCtech, Faceless manipulator, and the like. If you don't like the mechanic, grow up and get used to it, because it's gunna be around for a while.

You should probably put a card or two into your hand to counter large minions since that seems to be all you are thinking about. Newsflash, large minions can be in anyone's hand at any time and not just come out through mind control. Sorry you were counting on that guy only being useful to YOU.
I am shocked and appalled to have to use strategy in my strategy game

Every single priest I've based has had a mind control. Please stop spouting BS. Thanks you


January's pretty far back, but your November necro was better.

Well, you can theoretically put all 4 of those on the table before the Priest could even cast MC.

Edit: and many players, myself included, only run 1 of each because they can and will clog your hand early game.
