Specifically, buff Silence vs Sanctuary!

I think Silence is niche enough without Sanctuary protecting against it. Anyway Sanctuary says "your hand cannot be altered during your opponent's turn" - but Silence doesn't alter your hand, and it's impact certainly isn't felt until it's the Sanctuary-player's turn.

In terms of how much play each card sees, Sanctuary gets a lot of play, while Silence gets pretty little. This trade-off just gives players more reason to run Sanctuary and less reasons to run Silence :(

I really think silence looks like a "cheap hand control" than "blocking a turn".

I think Silence is powerful enough. You don't run Sanctuary in every deck.

InsignificantWeeaboo cross posted this to oetg's forum: https://etg.dek.im/forum/index.php?topic=957

There's a CL deck going around that's SoBr/Silence, pretty good deck

Hey look, moehrpi won monoaether mirror with Silence to break dimchain

You can run 4 PC if you really care about negating Sanctuary

Aether already has plenty of stallbreak

War decks: http://elementscommunity.org/forum/general-discussion/war-12-all-decks-used-67002
Do a search for "624" or "80k"
It's okay for a card to not be strong. There's plenty of cards in etg way worse than Silence. It's a tech card. Next you'll be saying to buff Holy Light

there was no silence in that match you linked to but i agree that silence is already strong enough
Spoiler for Hidden:

while there wasnt complete denial following this opening turn it is not uncommon for this deck to let the opponent have one turn and then be silenced untill they die.
while silence can be use as a stallbreak i believe it is best use as a support in a rush deck, why have a grabbow with fog explosions and bolts when you could just stop all those cards coming into play. Silence is GREAT with drawpower
