Me and Merchant go way back. It's really sad that we didn't get this card untill it was pointless. By the time we got it it was already coming to us restricted. Painful Choice was also banned as well. Oh and for kicks might I add that it came in the middle of a format where it really didn't matter. Maybe one day it'll be up lifted off the banned list and then may be just may be we'll be able to try it again.
