Chaos Orb Errata:

Chaos Orb (2)
Artifact
1, Tap: Choose a nontoken permanent on the battlefield. If Chaos Orb is on the battlefield, flip Chaos Orb onto the battlefield from a height of at least one foot. If Chaos Orb turns over completely at least once during the flip, and touches the chosen permanent, destroy that permanent. Then destroy Chaos Orb.

 

The reasons:

Allowing several (cheaper) reprints of the legal cards allows more players to participate in the events, it allows the community to grow. While „pimp“ is enjoyable for the involved players, JK-Entertainment doesn’t want to make its Old School events an exclusive club. The goal is to enable more players to have fun playing with all those old cards they used when they started to play.

Fallen Empires allows a bigger variety of decks to be played. We recognize the imbalance Hymn to Tourach causes for the classic 93/94 control decks, but that only diversifies the format.
