Heck, even Naraka isn't like that, at least it has Sacrifice (but it's something similar). Sorry but these are cards made for retards and they dumb down the quality of the game.
It working as intended doesn't mean it isn't broken. It's an extremely broken effect, there's no out to it. There's no "Well the wording is wrong they obviously meant it to do X". There's no obscurity or ambiguity to Mifune's effect. He's busted and it's pretty much what the creator wanted for him.
As for Jirobo State 2, changing the EC (which I actually do disagree with, unless it was printed wrong from the start) is completely different than changing the entire effect.
But let me ask this. As a player, which of the following would you prefer?
A) Mifune, if proven to be a true terror (and let's be honest, it will be) gets put to 0 on the next Rogue List. Problems obviously occur in the secondary market as a premium Super Rare only out for one format.
B) Mifune gets changed to a new version of his effect with different wording that's "more fair". He doesn't lose as much value on the secondary market. Tradeoff is confusion without having his wording on you at all times as his effect change isn't as simple as a one or two word fix and it likely won't be reprinted with the fix.
If you prefer B then do you do the same for every single card currently on the Rogue List?
