Turn 3, sure, but turn 1 was stupid and making it last more than one turn was even dumber. This card was not made using what we call common sense and because of the Rogue List Bandai can just make these cards and then go "derp let's Rogue List it because we have that in case this card is too strong". The Rogue List being there shouldn't be an excuse for them to make whatever card, let it have some stupid price and then Rogue it for the sake of the game when they could've used both common sense and testing to avoid this. Mifune may not be on the level of Jonin's Intervention but it was a stupid card to make overall.
I don't disagree that there are stupid cards to make and the Rogue List shouldn't be a get out of jail free card. Erratas are also not a get out of jail free card.
The only way to prevent broken cards is better testing methods. Realistically, there's nothing the playerbase can do unless Bandai wishes to let us do something about it. In the end we have no power over how they make their cards. Even the ones that get to create their cards after winning Gencon have no true power over how they make their cards because the cards become *******ized versions of them by the end.
Without an ability to gain access to card testing and application to make sure nothing too busted comes out there's really only one thing the playerbase can do. Abuse the broken cards that do come out to no end so that they leave within one format. Nothing more, nothing less.
