Sangan himself isn't really a bad card it's the cards he can search that pose a problem I guess. In the age of Wind Ups, Inzektors, Rescue Rabbit, Tour Guide, Sams, & numerous other derpness they decided to blame little Sangan for the derpness of tier one decks. Really instead of banning Sangan (which doesn't remove the OTK aspect of the decks he poses a problem in) they should ban the cards that trigger OTKs in the first place. Remove hornet, Wind up Magician, Rescue Rabbit, while limiting Tour Guide to one. Hell get rid of Gateway for Sams as well. If you open with a hand where 2-3 cards basically means GG on first turn there is a fundamental problem with the game. Blaming Sangan for the effects of broken ass cards is just wrong. Hell it's gotten to a point where Black Luster Solder (3000 beater that can attack twice, banish a monster, & has virtually no cost to summon) is considered "fair" & is actually legal because of all the other derpness that exist in the game.
Free Sangan & remove the real derp! Not that anyone cares.
