in Jim's Big Deck handout (which i am currently editing), he states the following:

Ante is optional during duels. If ante is not being played then all ante cards are errata to have the following rules text – (0), exile this card from the game: draw a card.

should the cycling ability be given a mana cost to be more fair? a free cycle seems pretty good. or should we ban ante outright?

I have no problem with people running ante cards if they want to, especially since some people enjoy playing for ante. If they draw one of their ante cards (which are probably Jeweled Bird or Contract from Below) they just remove it from the game and draw another card, just a simple draw replacement. Since it's only 2 cards out of 250 I don't see if affecting the density of their draws or causing any problems, and it allows those players to play ante if they wish.

Note: I made this rule because I don't like the rules on Contract from Below on the existing 5-color sites; B -Discard your hand. Ante a card if playing for ante. Draw 7 cards. In non-ante games this basically says pay 1 black, discard your hand and draw 7 new cards, which makes is insanely overpowered.

Edit: If we need to we can remove the part about "exile it from the game" to something less likely to be abused. I am just copying the new rules template from Wizards.

it's not exile from the game, it's just exile. i changed it on the handout.

i know it's negligible, but free cycling reduced the number of cards in a deck. oh, and Contract definitely needs to be dealt with. a double Ancestral Recall plus one isn't fun, especially since we banned Recall!

i'm ok with zero though.
