EDH before TA banning was a lot less fun than after TA banning. No other ban list change has had as much impact on the format's experience than this card. This is of course taking into account the volume of players, which means the earliest changes don't count a lot.

I'd say the same thing about the Gifts Ungiven banning too. For those who love either card, much like Primeval Titan, there's a bit of an initial hit but overall the format is just better.

Hey, you know what would be awesome? Unbanning Primeval Titan and Tolarian Academy at the same time.

Wouldn't that be fun?! Right guys? Guys?


...Why do you want to see a grown man cry? Because I'm definitely crying at even the prospect of this. Not cool, man. Not cool.

But, you're missing out on the cool synergy that's totally not broken!

You could search for Tolarian Academy and Mirrodin artifact lands! Get it? Huh? HUH?!

You get to tap Tolarian Academy for three, count'em three, mana the turn when you swing with Primeval Titan the turn after you play it, assuming you spend your first two searches on Tolarian Academy and a trio of artifact lands! How is THAT broken? I defy you to demonstrate it.
