    Spell eater bands? SERIOUSLY?

    Where's my armor saying 'you cant take damage from physical attacks till you are damaged by abilities X times' then?

    I understand that you guys REALLY wanted to make thieves competitive. But this one item makes whole idea of burn decks obsolete.
    And yes, I know about the ley line. But then a thief makes me discard it randomly, hitting me with that anklebreaker with shadow ability, and voila. I know that I have already lost this game, even tho I am at 26 hp and he's at 5 with a dot ticking at him.

    Same idiocy as the old Darkclaw ability. 'I AM INVULNERABLE, SUCK IT'. Such crap makes this game unenjoyable.

    Spelleater Bands is fine. It's a expensive card to play and any hero has a way do destroy it, so nothing wrong with that. Also you can just play allies to destroy it.

    In v1.29, ppl complaining that there were no counters to mages burn. Everyone was saying 'they can bypass the board, I can't do anything, the game was unenjoyable bec of this crap".

    In v1.5 there is finally spelleater band and legion united that provide some cover against burn.

    And now the mages player cry "crap".

    I also think it is ridiculous that this was only given to thief class. Burn decks are generally skill less easymode, it is completely unfair that this item should only be available to another easymode hero like lance. Hopefully all decks will have anti burn cards in the future so people can learn to play better.

    Play a mage deck against a good hunter or thief with this 'fine' item, and you will see how 'balanced' it is. When just ONE card can make you obsolete unless you can counter it, just by being there, it's not OK.
    It does not just make mage's life harder, see? It makes you immune to a defining mechanic of a human mage deck.

    In other words, 'so people are forced to move away from burn decks and play other heroes'.
    Thank you for proving my point, albeit in a stupid maneer.

    Just use LLN and you even get a card out of it. Which is, oh wow, a neutral card usable by everyone.

    How do you think your opponent feels when you have skillfully taken your opponent down to 5 health as well as wiped his board completely and taken minimal damage?

    Do you think you have out played him?

    Do you feel that it is fair that you can do all this directly out of your hand with no way of your opponent to stop it except for this one card?

    Almost every competent mage uses LLN and usually it lasts only one or two turns at most.
