I have no idea why Seeds is banned. Looking forward to an explanation from the rules team.

Please note I'm only supposing here.

So, I suppose that the reason is that Seeds of Corruption removes "special abilities" that are defined nowhere in the rulebook, and that can't be defined easily. It's the kind of card that make you think when reading it: "what does it remove precisely"; and you'lll have no way of knowing it, even by reading the rules.
For instance, Seeds of Corruption on Tariq gives him back his 7-capacity. The "-4 capacity" is a drawback, but is considered as a special abilty which is not especially intuitive. I know that because I read the ruling. I hell don't know if the "not affected by blood curse" stays or not, since it's no longer linked to the clan. Previously he would be Independent and Blood Cursed (clan-related). Today, I don't know.

Maybe it will be errated in the future, but Floppy's current policy is not to errata cards until the reprint is on its way. So I suppose it's not for a game-balancing reason, but for rule reasons.

My 2 cents.

"Special ability" includes all text except terms (i.e., it doesn't include Clan, Sect, Title, Unique (or not), Blood Cursed, Circle, Flight, Infernal, Scarce, Slave, Sterile, Vulnerability, Anarch, Black Hand, Seraph, Red List). (note that this only restricts things that are possible only by special ability - things that a special ability makes impossible are still impossible.)

Seems like weak sauce to me. Not your explanation (thanks for that), but the fact that if it is correct that that was the reason

Nice artwork. I look forward to the day that Unmasking is banned if we can't errata it to be "tap to give an ally +1 intercept." Way bigger influence on the game than Anthelios.
