Quoting from Smmenen’s Alternative History of the Banned and Restricted List:
The restriction of Sword of the Ages is inexplicable. According to Beth Moursand, it was restricted because it “allows any creature-heavy deck to do a huge amount of nearly unstoppable damage.” Yet, this was a case of bad timing. As noted above, the Legends expansion ushered in the “creatureless era of Magic,” a hyperbolic description to be sure, but it was nonetheless a metagame where this card was rarely seen. It should not have been restricted.
