Now that AD champs can get a ridiculous amount of armor penetration and armor shred with The Black Cleaver and Last Whisper, wouldn't it be nice if an item had a unique passive effect of reducing armor pen/shred?

So you want a counter, to a counter, to a counter?

Well its just that normally you build armor to counter AD but getting both Black Cleaver and Last Whisper is getting popular on AD bruisers. The two items combined provide a ridiculous amount of armor pen.

Alternatively, you could also consider stacking health along with armor to make it harder for the carries to kill you.

You're not alone.
  • Player 1: I play Raigeki.
  • Player 2: Not so fast. I activate Imperial Order.
  • Player 1: Too bad. I chain Mystical Space Typhoon.
  • Player 2: I activate Magic Jammer.
  • Player 1: I play Seven Tools of the Bandit.
  • Player 2: Ha! I counter with my own Seven Tools of the Bandit.

And so it goes on...

It would only go until 10 traps or spells were played total, as I believe you can't play from your hand in Yugioh (True? Can you play trap cards? Can't remember - MTG fuzzed out Yugioh), and you certainly can't draw from your deck.

You're right. You cannot play trap cards from your hand; only those which have been set face-down. But the play I described above is perfectly possible if all those have been set. Mystical Space Typhoon can be played from your hand as it is a Quick-Play Magic Card.
