So using certain potions on Gruul 1.0 was a exploit as well?tbh, "Clever use of game mechanics" is a nice way of saying exploit, the same way gentle caress is a nice way of saying fuck
If anything, it's a design error. What if the encounter was intended to be this way?
Besides, they only used what, 1 mage? so it's a piss poor execuse to be envy.
