You know, Malakir Bloodwitch and other white-warded creatures are really a pain in the butt, but if your deck is good you can survive. Phyrexian Obliterator is very strong, but as long it may die with a Sword to Plowshares you can survive.
What really has proven to be deadly is Phyrexian Crusader because there was no way in which I could prevent the poison counters. The best strategy that I've found is to place 4 Soldevi Simulacrum in the deck to quickly get basic lands, to add other lands that grant extra life points, 4 Moonglove Extract to kill them... and 4 Jester's Cap in order to get rid of the same Phyrexian crusader, then Get's Verdict and then Consuming Vapors. Those cards are really DAMN strong.
I really wonder if they will ever do anything to re-balance White coloro because, even if it is the only one who may exile creatures that will automatically re-shuffle in the library, it is the most vulnerable color to white-warded creatures.
I mean, black has Diabolic Edict & co, Red has Ghostfire, Blue has Vedalken Shackles and Counterspells, while Green doesn't have to worry too much about warded creatures and most often is already in advantage.
So, which cards do you use to re-balance the power of Black now?

Instead Maze of Ith was a surprice: the fact that it doesn't give mana was a severe limit for me. Are you still using it? It is no longer restricted in 1.5, isn't it?

Because in custom version, that Crusader is dealing both and I would like to know if it is an approximation or maybe just the custom version that is buggish (like with Doran, which has part of the code in Magic.exe file and which is missing in the Custom version).

That's the reason why you think it's overpowered.
In fact it is not.

If you are a white creature deck fighting a black creature deck, then you could run Stoneforge Mystic + whichever equipment suits your fancy.
Re Maze of Ith: just think of it like a spell slot instead of a land slot.

Anyway, now that I've seen that the P. Crusader doesn't deal any damage, I've removed it from many decks and re-evaluated it
I just wonder what they shall do in the next expansion set to re-balance colors....
