I was wondering... what cards have people removed from the game/expansions and why?

I know some people are really anti making any changes, but personally I think building your perfect deck is part of the fun.

I agree; every card draw should be interesting! (or at least most of them) I take out any cards that are unfun for everyone or just pointless space blockers.

Removed from adventure deck:
Magician
Dungeon Doors
Talismans (we like to get them from quests or encounters, rather than find them in a field)
Mad cap
Parthenon
Bane sword
there's a lot more that I can't remember right now

After a game, if there was a card that came out that seems pointless and uninteresting (and like it probably will be in future games, too), I'll remove it from the deck.

I almost hated the Dragon expansion, until being inspired and made my own variant. Not gonna share it all here, but it does entail removing all cards that effect specific board spaces like the castle and village. I also removed cards that deal with scales, sleep, and other odd effects.

I also dislike the day/nite variant, so don't play that, which therefore entails removing most cards that specificlay deal with day or night, tho I have left a couple in, deciding randomly on those couple of exceptions.

And while I enjoy a good Halloween flavor during the season of Autumn, I don't like it in my game most of the year and so remove many of the heavily Halloween flavored cards from Bloodmoon as well. Thus a good percentage of BloodMoon has been removed.

I also think having the Reaper and Werewolf is over much, we enjoy the Reaper more so we have removed the Werewolf as well.

And the only card I have removed because I felt was over powered was the Scribe. But have been tempted to remove others, but have not.
