    Why is Earthcraft Restricted in MTG? It's not even that fast.

    I'm pretty sure the fastest kill you can get with it, without using something else that's already restricted, is a turn 3 kill.

    In comparison, Manaless Dredge can sometimes get a turn 2 kill without using any restricted cards, and High Tide can get a turn 2 kill one third of the time without using any restricted cards, and High Tide can still get a turn 1 kill with the Power Nine in the deck about 5% of the time.

    So why restrict a turn 3 kill if you aren't going to restrict every other turn 2 or turn 3 kill?

    Moreover, the turn 3 kill with Earthcraft is a 4(correction) card combo in a two color deck, so it's statistically not likely to happen very often anyway.

    The Earthcraft turn one kill is a seven card combo that involves two other cards that are already Restricted, so the probability of that happening is almost literally zero, even if they un-restricted Earthcraft.
