So, I played T4 for the first time in years tonight. Wow, is Epic Experiment broken. Do you all play this in your stacks? Is it problematic?

Nah man, we don't play that. Too busted.

Aren't all the X spells historically too powerful in T4?

Pretty much yes. Only one I play is Heat Ray, and it still manages to kill players via damage redirectors.

But some people like busted stacks that only last 3-4 turns, so to each their own.

X being in a mana cost is not strictly a sign of too powerful, but most implementations (damage, power, life, cards) are banned in my stack.  Epic Experiment seemed to toe the line, when I put it in, but now that I've played it a few times - it's functionally more powerful than drawing.

Actually I remember we also use Braingeyser. It's good, but you're still limited to keeping 5 cards and if you have draw too many too early, you might end up decked.

For reference, X-spells in my stack:
- Captain's Maneuver
- Chord of Calling
- Divine Deflection
- Dominate
- Ertai's Meddling
- Flash of Insight
- Rally the Ancestors
- Shining Shoal
- Skeletal Scrying
- Spell Burst
- Wake the Dead
- Wargate
- Who/What/Where/Why/When (we errated the gain line to cap @ 10 life, because the card is otherwise so fun)
- (Aeon Chronicler)
