In almost any respectable CCG/TCG forum there's inevitably one or more thread or forums that makes a specific list of cards that either warrant a closer scrutiny on, or even highlight for outright limitations and/or bannings of from sanctioned competetion. Of course with Culdcept, there's really no way of restricting or banning cards other than informal consensus, and even with XBL editing the game to implement such changes are outright impossible without releasing a new edition.
I think it might be useful for players here just for FYI awareness and even consideration for their own games and tournaments if two forums or sticky threads (one for each game) were created for the purpose of addressing issues of cards that are just by common observations maybe just a little too good or even outright abusive in full sets, much less treated as Extras.
For example, Trespass is coming up as one such Too Good card (even though I have no idea what it does. Don't have a 360 or broadband and GameFAQS doesn't even have a spoiler on Saga cards yet) frequently. Extra cards are pretty powerful but they're inherently limited by their 1 per deck only nature and they can be banned from a game by Rule settings. The purpose of these forums or threads would be to discuss cards that aren't Extras but come close to being such themselves and reach an informal consensus on whether they ought to be treated as Extras or even banned from consensus games.
