Yeah, other than removing counters being a black thing and card that prevents counters being black there is nothing else to prove that black can prevent counters. Oh wait.

That said, people on Discord were confused and unsure. I asked MaRo, so I'll notify you if there is any updates.

Flavor mostly, if there was a color that could manipulate poison, it would be black. Especially for a price.

That's a disingenuous argument. How often do you finish your game at more than 0 life? Not to mention more than 20 life. Yeah, corruption is weaker against life gain, but life gain isn't that common of a deck.

If 2 damage is corruption and 18 damage is regular damage (assuming no healing) you lose. It works together with damage, it's not a parasitic thing like poison. Granted healing mitigates it, to a degree.

I don't think I'd actually do anything that requires removing corruption, since that works poorly in multiplayer.
They were made with some design constraints, same way colors get design constraints.

It's white, it's common, and it exiles. It's part of white's color pie. I see no logical reason it couldn't do that at common, other than it never did it at common (it did it at uncommon - Thopter's arrest and it's uncommon probably because the text was 4+ lines).

To the same manner
