CCDD 063020 - Quincy, Master Bureaucrat

Attacking and blocking with creatures is a big part of what makes Magic fun, but some decks just don't want to fight fair. They focus on finding ways to win-- or at least accrue an overwhelming advantage-- outside of combat. In the interest of fun I like to find cards that make those decks less appealing, but it's hard to interact favorably with strategies that are fundamentally non-interactive. Sometimes, I find, it's better to fight unfair with unfair.

Without the restriction Quincy's activated ability would just be oppressive-- compare it to Ertai, Wizard Adept's, which requires four mana every turn. With the restriction, my hope is that opponents have plenty of space to play around it-- as long as they're playing (somewhat) fair.
