This, it's just sad.
So now it's a card too weak for new players to bother using and it's no longer the card that made old players like it to begin with.
What's the point?
At best, the card might see a couple months of love out of nostalgia before people remember how broken the game has become
which makes it not that good anymore.

I really hate card changing errata.
Errata is supposed to be there to make a card's effect easier to read and understand.
To make it more clear so there's less arguments on how an effect works.

The way they are using it now, it's just them too lazy to make up a new monster.
That's what these are; new monsters with repeat artwork.

It's like they are actively trying to kill off the game.
That's what happens to any IP right before the end.
They pull out all the stops and do any crazy thing they can.
If it's going to end, there's no point in preserving it anymore.
There's no point in having banned cards when there's nobody following the card game.

I'm going to call it right now.
Yata-Garasu, Witch of the Black Forest, Thousand-Eyes Restrict.
They will all get this history erasing, errata-unban done to them.

I just checked out the latest errata on DMOC, I can't believe they changed it so much. It is almost not even the same card anymore. They will do the same thing with brio, and as you said Mystic, all the other good old cards

Same could be said for Sangan according to this thread.

Remember what they did with cards like Tribe Infecting Virus and Fishborg Blaster? They made Tribe Shocking Virus and Fishborg Launcher. Both had worse effects, but I still would rather them do something like that instead of completely destroying the original cards and then unbanning them. They could have just made a new Sangan-esque monster and gave it that new text. They would also have to change it to something other than level 3 as well.

Exactly this. What about the people that play traditional? Or want to relieve a specific format? Now the cards that existed during that format (think goat control, TeleDAD, etc) do not even exist anymore, properly. Yes of course you can just overlook the card effects and get together and say "Hey lets play the way it used to be even though the card says otherwise" but it is just bad that it even comes to that.

Make Dark Wizard of Chaos and Chaos Ruler Dragon and Witch of the Dark Forest and Sangin and Hundred Eyes Restrict.
