VtES History: Double Edge

When the VtES expansion Gehenna was about to be released in May 2004, the french trading card magazine "Lotus Noir" featured an article on the expansion (along with the promotional card Anthelios, the Red Star). Beside some information on Gehenna and some spoilers, there was also a rumor about an upcoming rule change, the Double Edge.
If you keep the Edge one full turn, it transforms in a Double Edge which gives the following advantages:
  • You gain one pool in your untap phase, if you have the Double Edge but it comes from your prey pool.
  • It is worth 3 votes, if you discard it during referendums
When asked about the Double Edge in a VtES developer chat on May 15th, 2004, LSJ and Steve Wieck clarified that they found this in the eleven year old playtest notes from when Jyhad was first created. They put the rule then to test when developing the Gehenna expansion, but eventually dropped it.
