Friendly reminder MM2015 came out a year ago. If you want your staples from that set, the window is closing.
>tfw you want to drop $10 or so on boosters just to see what you get
is this really such a sin?
Faeries player here. Lost favorable match ups and now preparing for the Tron and Eldrazi shit storm.
As a burn player choosing whether to bolt a delver or just burn the face is one of the hardest decisions I'm consistently presented with.
They run 4 delvers and counterspells, I only have 4 bolts.
Delver is a trap in Modern. The lack of good library manipulation means that you have to play far more creatures to reliably threaten your opponent's life total, which in turn and together with the lack of library manipulation, means that your Delvers are much less likely to flip.
I've played U/R delver for a bit after cruise was banned. As burn, I feel like you could just front load all your damage before delver can get into a favorable board position. Always bolt the pyromancer though.
Memeskai is a shit deck and you know it. I'll feed on your tears once I extirpate ur Memeskai Ascendacy from your deck and burn it IRL.
All fa/tg/uys know no pro player will play Memeskai in a ProTour
i already do that
That's my main concern, that DnT is too difficult to pilot for me. But on the other hand the mana base for Abzan will be expensive and I should challenge myself to become a more skilled player. And yes, I was worried tokens was too glass cannon/ not diverse enough.
Delver was only good in Modern when it had Treasure Cruise. At all other points in the deck's history it's sucked donkey nuts in Modern. That's why Twin was such a thing, because even at the times when Twin wasn't very good all other blue decks in the format were fucking atrocious.
I thought about buying into Faeries, but holy fuck Cliques and BBs are outrageous.
Instead I decided to get my 4th Wooded Foothills and Windswept Heaths to up my fetchland collection to 4 sets out of 10 (other two being a set of Arid Mesas and Polluted Deltas). They'll probably repeat Faerie cards again when they get around to MM3, as a draft archetype it seems to be a fixture.
Don't know what the rates are for pulling an Expedition, but I got one during prerelease.
Otherwise its probably worth buying a fat pack and keeping the land pack sealed for future price hikes.
Yeah, you pulled one of the shitty ones. And now there's going to be Expedition Tec Edges and shit. Seriously, whatever fucking moron thought that a $50 Tectonic Edge was a good idea can suck my wang.
Cinder Glade is the only shyland that sees actual modern play. It's seeing some play in BTL/ RUG Scapeshift as Stomping Ground #5 and is a playset in Titanshift. Could've done worse, imo.
Why do all of the autists love Blue so much? It's the fedora of magic colors only played by faggots who like to adjust their glasses and chuckle like a Yugioh villain as they counter spells. Red is the best color.
Just play all the decks over xmage or cockatrice or whatever before wasting your money
Once you've played all decks in this format you'll realize it's garbage and the only reason people keep playing is sunk cost
You think you can come in here, and talk shit like that, and get away with it? Think again, fucker.
>red is the best color
Spoken like a true retard
Blue is liked by good players because its main mechanics are card selection (i.e. consistency) and card advantage (i.e. winning)
Counters are just catch-all answers. They're not loved as much as they're just appreciated for almost always being the best option when you have to deal with some problem
But really, having a favourite color beyond mechanics makes you a pathetic manchild.
I'm trying to decide my next deck to build for Modern, /tg/.
How is Troll Worship? I'm looking to build the WG version first so I can keep it budget for now and with my next paycheck, I would upgrade it to Bant with Geists and Swords of X and Y.
Personally I play Zoo like a true patrician
Every time I turn my Wild Nacatl sideways I get a painful erection and have to satisfy it under the table
Fucking blue mages with there faggy blue counterspells are bullshit!!!!!
>HOT NEW DECKS<
Blue Extra Turns
Jeskai Flash Midrange
Blue Annex Midrange
Feel free to post more hot new meta decks
>implying people do nothing but permission
The only difference between me casting Mana Leak on a Ravager and you Bolting it is that if he has an Etched Champion, you cry but I don't care. Also that my counters will get anything, but your Bolt can only Bolt.
this is looking only at the cards used as answers, not how Bolt can also be a threat, you fucking idiot
if you even thought of bringing up that Bolt can go to the dome you're a moronic sack of shit and you're probably the product of cuckolding
Nah, I genuinely pull money cards consistently. Bought a box of Innistrad when the set came out for shits and giggles and to draft with my friends. Ended up with several Lilianas and a playset of Snapcasters.
Similar things have happened every time I've bought sealed products.
Control is trying to prevent your partner from prematurely blowing his load, making sure he doesn't get to leverage the opening's surprise factor before you can assemble the tools needed for your sexual extravaganza, and then giving him the loving of a lifetime when he's run out of gas and you're still there with a full tube of lube
No, but Modern is pretty much all linear, noninteractive decks. Burn, Affinity, Tron, and Infect and Eldrazi vary from "I have a few spells to slow you down" to "turn 2 hellbent"
I would rather play Control than any linear deck. At least you're actually playing Magic if you lose.
Non-Titan Scapeshift is pretty interactive, especially for a modern deck.
>Similar things have happened every time I've bought sealed products.
Right, I'm far more liable to believe this over the fact that you just didn't feel the exceptions were worth remembering.
Also, everyone playing in Innistrad already had a playset of Snapcasters for 10 dollars/each. Only cost me $40 for my playset as compared to your what, 100 for a box?
Nice luck you got.
Seriously, recommending people to buy boosters should be punished with beheading because both the man recommending and anyone who believes it is a complete retard
The fact that people actually believe corporate statements is actually a huge eye-opener to me.
Imagine if it's always been like this in other industries too, and we just thought no one believed it because we weren't in the loop.
If we'd been in the competitive monkey makeup market or something
>if he has an Etched Champion, you cry but I don't care
i.e. counterspells are a universal solution while other forms of answers are much more narrow
i.e. counters are a way for the control deck to have several ways to answer any given deck's plan in the main 60, as opposed to other decks' far narrower (and more powerful sometimes, of course) sideboard answers
i.e. you don't play the counterspells just to say no and draw a bunch of cards, you do it for the same reason play Stony Silence against affinity: making your own deck marginally worse so that you can hopefully drastically reduce the quality of the opponent's deck and thereby squeeze out a win
i.e. Bolt et al are narrow, counters are general you boob
>Control has infinite answers to answer everything you do and they can solitaire the best sequence of counters against you without even knowing what cards you're playing
>Rebecca Guay still paints artwork for M:TG 15 years after I first saw her concept art
Even though I stopped playing a decade ago, for some reason this gives me a warm comforting feeling. Maybe it's the familiarity and assurance. Regardless, I'm happy to have noticed this card on the front page.
Scapeshift is actually pretty solid against aggro. Four bolts mainboard to kill burns guides and a couple spells snares for their eidolons, along with a set of remands to keep them behind and a set of cryptic commands which are usually online by turn 3. You also have a couple Baloths and flashfreezes in your sideboard.
what's your opinion on lili for this new meta, /tg/?
The one saving grace of playing merfolk right now is using spreading seas on eye of ugins and temples. Just get to watch all these bandwagoners get visibly flustered the moment i drop that shit and their hand becomes uncastable.
My friend wants to get into magic, specifically modern, but he's being a cheap ass (despite having more expendable income than I do) and would rather play pauper.
How do I make him stop being a cheap ass and explain to him pauper is worse than modern?
And please no splinter twin ass hurt fags saying "pauper is better because twin was banned waaaahhhh"
>but he's being a cheap ass (despite having more expendable income than I do) and would rather play pauper.
people don't accumulate income by just squandering it, maybe you should take some pointer from him you cuck
I should say that our entire group plays modern and he wants to do paperback pauper, not online.
It's just kind of like "that's cool you guys do this, but you should totally disregard that shit and do that"
He's go more expendable income than you because he's not as retarded, uneducated and puerile as you.
Modern sucks and only idiots (e.g. you) play it.
As much can be easily be seen from you having to ask at a Polynesian Beekeeping Referendum why a format you've already decided is bad without ever playing is worse than a format to which it's in fact strictly superior.
It's saying "you guys are fucking idiots and I won't buy into your shitty cult, if you want to play with me you know my conditions and if you don't want to, that's fine because I don't care enough about this shitty hobby to make it a central part of my interaction with my friends and I'll just do something else instead, but I won't waste money on shit that I don't even like"
Well a paper pauper deck outside of things like mono u gush decks are like $5 to build.
Theres nothing wrong with asking your playgroup if they would be interested in buillding pauper decks as a fuck around thing. We have like 9 or 10 of them all together and will do random deck pauper tournaments every once in a blue moon and its a blast.
But lets be real anon, asking someone just starting to play magic to "build a modern deck its only a few thousand dollars" is a real shitty thing to do. Draft or play sealed or cube with the guy or give him one of the groups budget deck to play with.
So uh, how bad of a deck would this be for a player just getting into modern?
MtGproxyfactory. Keep in mind he only sells fakes in $100 assortments.
Most people here say they get them, and I hear a lot of people talk about they shitty quality. One of my friends tried it and never even got a confirmation email from the chink.
Back when there was no limit on how many cards you could have of the same name in a deck the generally agreed upon minimum number of cards in a deck was 40.
Also, Lotus+Channel+Fireball is more likely the deck you're thinking of.
dont need only btl for it to be in scapeshift. you can replace a stomping ground with it (you dont fetch that many red shocks so it gives you an option since u get a lot of basic land ramp any) or a mountain if ur so inclined (same story basically)
there was a slivers deck similar to this one that reached top 8 in an scg open several months back before getting its shit slapped by infect. You might want to refer to that list.
>The last card Rebecca painted is 7 years old.
Well fuck, now I'm sad. First my car dies, then this. I wish I hadn't thought of her today or expressed that idea at all, life is just a downward slope of tired disappointment.
>Delver is a really good card in Bolt: The Format.
Then why isn't Delver bad in Legacy the format who runs the most efficient removal (because Vintage doesn't have time to dedicate those slots.
>I wish I hadn't thought of her today or expressed that idea at all
It will be OK, Anon. Guay is doing her thing and she's doing fine.
Delver is always a 3/2 the game after you play him, he hits at least once for 3, most often twice.
In Modern Delver doesn't flip and the second most popular removal after Bolt is Swords, not Abrupt Decay. Sometimes gifting your Delver opponent 3 life in Legacy is a death sentence.
Brainstorm, Stifle, Wasteland, Daze, Force of Will
How is competition at FNMs at your local game stores? I'm considering getting into modern and I was wondering how it looks, I've been lurking around these threads for a couple of days and it seems like things that aren't tier 1 or 2 are a waste of time. I don't have enough money to just drop 600$ on a deck so I was thinking of building a budget version of something and getting cards I need over time. Is it possible to do? I saw a couple of budget affinity options that are upgradable but I'm not very interested in that archetype. Something like Delver, Faeries or Death and Taxes seems much more fun to play.
-Get a split between Manaweft and Gemhide Sliver. Dodges fringe maelstrom pulse cases.
-Run Bonescythe Sliver in the mainboard. Probably getting rid of a Diffusion Sliver.
-Run Chord of Calling if you're going to run Sentinel Sliver. Vigilance is overrated since you're going to get islandwalked by Merfolk and trade poorly with Goyf. Your only real advantage with Vigilance is against a weenie deck like Burn or Hatebears.
>ban red card that has purely red effects
>Blue players complain that it hurts blue
Maybe you should start using mill or unblockables or another actual blue wincon, rather than pretending that red/colorless combos are blue just because they can go infinite.
Posting my U/R Delver list again, would go Grixis but then I couldn't play my jank cards.
So you quite literally can't beat Tron and you're too slow for Burn/Affinity.
Just because he can't block you doesn't mean you're winning the damage race, numbnuts.
No I'm telling people to stop calling their combo brew a blue deck because they put a counterspell in it. It's like calling every deck with bolt in it a red burn deck.
Now that twin is gone, we'll start to see the return of good blue cards. Maybe not the cantrips, because storm, but wizards is getting more comfortable printing "sometimes counterspell" and "sometimes ancestral recall" effects.
Unfortunately fun decks are not cheap and Delver, D&T, and Faeries will burn through your $600.
I honestly do not recommend playing the format. Like most decks the only cards that are interchangeable are your mana base and your mana base is going to be the most expensive part of your deck. Prices are outrageous and budget options quickly don't become budget even though they're on the fringe. The only reason I'm playing it is because I got in on the ground level and now my Modern cards have tripled in value. You will get more play-time using your $600 on Limited or Standard. Or use the $600 to buy fakes. $250 should get you four sets of 56 cards that contain most of the manabase and high-end cards in Modern. The remaining money can be used on filling out the deck.
The only recommendation I can give to anyone who wants to experience the format at all is to just build mega-budget burn. Just pick up every burn spell that's 3 damage to the face including Incinerate and Searing Spear and Monastery Swiftspear and go to town. Though not as effective, some decks are still cold to it.
Today, I watched a guy spend over a hundred dollars on three cards. I don't care how much money you actually have, that is a poor fucking choice.
That's really sad, lurking in a thread due to spite.
>tfw you hope for the pro tour to be all linear decks so your whining is justified and you can continue to do so until wotc finally unbans a good and fun card
The real issue is that she's fair.
Not big enough or tricky enough to win with.
But then half the decks in the format or more aren't going to try to win with combat damage in a way she can deal with. Legendary, so you can't get 2 out if you draw them. Basically, it's a good card, it's not good enough that you couldn't find something better.
>LGS has 4 RG Tron players and 3 Twin players
>Tron players celebrating hard
>Twin players converted to Scapeshift, Ad Nauseam and Jeskai Ascendancy
>Tron players get rump roasted last FNM since all they did was watch the ex-Twinfags go off
Feels good to watch tbqh senpai
The removal checks of the format are Path to Exile and Lightning Bolt.
This does not mean that cards that die to those spells are unplayable. But the decks that that get fried by those spells usually have some means to apply continuous pressure or the creatures are blank to Path but not Bolt. And the creatures that do eat a Path the deck can leverage the extra mana.
See how this deck is very vulnerable to 1-for-1 removal. But it shreds the opponent's hand and often kills the opponent with one or two creatures.
>Twin players converted to Scapeshift, Ad Nauseam and Jeskai Ascendancy
How do tokens decks generally respond to board wipes? It seems like if you're pretty set back if your bitterblossoms have taken a third of your life and then everything gets supreme verdicted.
Yes, and watch the price spike to Tarmogoyf levels.
She's a midrange tool now, I don't know why she's still banned
Considering BGx is dead in this meta I'm fine with the value train
Makes blue stronger in a Tron meta. I'm good with it.
I don't know how to feel about this.
I think Agent is commander so it's not even unbannable although I could be wrong.
>he doesn't want to be speshul
Okay mr. midrange. Or should I call you aggro? If that IS your real name...
I'll be here with my sickass totally rad solitaire combo. Meet you at turn 4, kid.
I mean it probably still is but that doesn't stop it from making top 8.
BFZ and OGW helped out, lantern scout as maybe a 2 of and a playset of Ally Encampment, I forget what else is relevant.
Probably not merfolk-tier but it can win games for sure.
I've been pulling in wins with Turns though so IMO you can beat t1 decks with t2 decks; however, not all of em, hence why it's t2
i've gone 2-1-0 at the last two modern days at my local shop, playing a janky deck that is far from tier1 or 2. I spent around 140 but it could probably be built for under $200 right now.
The meta is generally affinity, 8rack, Utron, RGtron, infect, merfolk, sometimes UWx control, delver, etc. You should try to scope out modern events at ur shop and see what decks pop up, to figure out what might be viable for you to bring.
I would also advise you to try out different decks on cockatrice or proxy or whatever before buying anything.
Also, you can do red burn pretty cheap as >>44997169 suggested.
Quite interesting, as the monogreen stompy guys from mtg salvation are crying after twin (as supposedly the twin ban nerfed their deck matchup wise). I thought other tier 3 competitive decks shared the similar fate.
>tfw i made that reaction image
>tfw there's another shirayuki fan that plays modern
I play faeries too. I don't usually have much of an issue with tron. Sucks we lost the twin matchup though
It does, it's Guay alright.
It's just that she drew it in Lorwyn block where Bitterblossom originally came out. They just reused it recently when it was reprinted.
I think she does occasionally make art now too, but there ain't a lot of it. I think the last was in Tenth edition
>Buy a booster box
>No Chandra (Even if she sucks, I like her card), No Tazri, No Expedition, mostly jank outside of a Kozilek
>Cousin buys one booster from a store
1-for-1 removal is pretty meh unless you're backing it up with something to win the game, and for most decks that backup plan requires too streamlined a list to pack mainboard 1-for-1 removal
are you so retarded you actually care enough about the color of cards to consider it an important part of the deck beyond just mana constrictions?
because if so you should probably be playing yugioh instead
alternatively, playing russian roulette with a glock
>implying it would be expensive if Wizards would just stop being greedy kikes and reprint the fucking staples at a reasonable level
Nah, 10 dollar commons of the worst cantrips ever made with no Modern Masters reprint is probably better
well do you want one creature unblockable for two turns, or unblockable for one and a card to replace that one in your hand? one yields the same effect while the other might yield better or a land
>top 16 of latest SCG modern
>13 aggro decks
my fucking sides are being obliterated
this format is the best joke ever told
the best thing is how every single person knew that fast aggro was going to be the only thing anyone would even bother playing now that it can't lose to Tron or Eldrazi and there's nothing else to worry about
Judged at the Open today. Saw some Modern. Can confirm that Top 4 was Jund, Merfolk, Merfolk, Temur Delver. Top 8 included Affinity and 3 others I didn't see. Tron did poorly from what I heard. Eldrazi was okay.
Loving Every Laugh
Aether Vials are going no where but up, and we have only ourselves to blame.
>affinity is 15% of the meta
To promote format diversity, arcbound ravager, cranial plating, everything you love, and all your hope and dreams have been banned fromthe modern format.
>the year is 2053, Magic: the Gathering is dead
>in 2041, all cards were made illegal in all formats and almost all professional players were massacred in what is now known as "The Great MTG Purge."
>I lived, but lost my reason for living
>Magic was gone
"Hopefully with these changes people will move away from unfair toxic uninteractive poopy colorless artifact strategies and move towards fair and good for the health of the format colorless Eldrazi™ strategies instead! We think this might maybe make modern better I guess whatever mumble pro tour mumble. Don't forget to buy a booster box of Oath of the Gatewatch™ so you can compete in modern too!"
So lets see how this diversity promoting ban has gone so far:
Aggro: 46->51% (and gaining a lot)
Control: 21% (and falling)
Combo: 28%(and quickly falling)
Last SCG top 16 has 13 aggro decks.
The collapse of modern is amazing, the DCI will never do it, but they really should reverse their ban decision.
Was testing an Affinity build with Ancient Stirrings and a forest MD and Natural State in the side instead of Ancient Grudge so I can pawpew Stony Silence (worked in 2 different matches, needs more testing though. Ancient Stirrings grabbed gas almost every time I cast it, seems good). Had a guy playing Eldrazi get all salty about the matchup. Poor little lamb.
Honestly if it was up to me I'd keep Summer Bloom too but too many people would bitch about it
I just realized something. The reason why I hate such high prices in Modern.
It's because I do everything in cash. I don't waste my time dogfucking around keeping phonebook-thick trade binders; I just buy what I need.
Now, you can trade 4 Inquisition of Kozileks for a single Grove of the Burnwillows. A couple years ago you could make that same trade. Except the difference now is that instead of trading four $1.50 cards for a $6.00 card you're trading four $25 cards for a $100 card. The relative values haven't changed, inflation has just gone through the goddamn roof to fit in line with $100 Lilianas and $200 Tarmogoyfs.
I think it's too early to say that aggro is dominating, especially off the weight of a single tournament. After a shakeup most everyone just resorts to aggro because that's what's reliable and nobody has put in the effort to research new deck tech and test the metagame.
Given that most pros don't even bother practicing for Modern like renting a house and grinding the format for a week anymore I think we should just wait a month or two for MTGO results.
When will glorious boros reign supreme over the multiverse
Shadows Over Innistrad will be a shitty cash in on a popular set with all of the new mechanics being shitty +1/+1 counter allocation and oversimplified garbage that brings nothing back. One mechanic from the previous block will be brought back (a la Landfall), most likely Flashback. Wizards is probably also going to cash in on Lovecraftian pop culture references due to the name of the set being a reference to one of his works, and Emrakul possibly being a player in the story. All in all: 0/10 worst set ever made, Magic will die.
How to really fix modern
Arch Bound Ravager
Eidolon of the Great Revel
Inquisition of Kozilek
This would make modern a much more enjoyable format.
the returning mechanic is going to be morbid because capitalizing on creature deaths is morbid and lets players get value out of when their creatures are removed because it negates the feel bads of when your fucking rhino dies
why do people expect anything nice out of this company anymore? they just disappoint us every single fucking time and we line up for more with optimism of things to come.
Will that be the day that flying 1/2s for 2 will be top value?
Would the most oppressive deck at Pro Tour Zimbabwe be Storm Crow.dec?
Was that the plan all along?
Did Wizards create the format just to summon Satan?
>Two Temur Delver lists in the top 16
Get fucked kids Delver is fucking amazing in this format.
Dude it's pretty obvious that so far aggro is dominating
Whether this will remain true or not is yet to be seen but right now aggro is the undisputed king, the others cannot compete
The aggro lists haven't changed, neither have the others, but the ball's in "not-aggro"'s court because they're the underdogs now
Aggro is always the safest go to deck after a banning, this can be seen throughout every ban update
Just like right after the Pod/Cruise banning Burn got extremely popular THEN midrange variants came back into the picture.
>I'm an idiot who doesn't know what he's talking about :)
Weren't you the retard in the last thread who played Miracles on xmage and managed to lose against the worst deck in the entire format?
except people were still playing the other decks that also existed before the ban and they all got trashed
it's not like people switched from Tron or Eldrazi or whatever other dumb non-aggro memedeck they were playing to aggro, it's that aggro is well-positioned in the meta pre-transition to new deck tech
I'm not sure what's so hard for you to understand about aggro being good in the current status quo, before people start adjusting for it
This. As an Elves player, I abhore that matchup. It's a good thing Skred is for people who want to be a special snowflake, because really, when your deck has 4 different boardwipes, you can safely assume any creature based strategy can go right out the window
I mean as a UR delver I'm stoked as hell that it top 8'd but I wish the guy had piloted the version with less goyfs and more pyromancers, although he played the better version, it salts me that UR scrapes by and goyfs can give it the boostershot it needs.
At least blue gets Frostwalker, the best P/T ratio of any 2cmc creature :^)
I don't want this tbqh
there is already a variety of counterspells, and nobody will take the 1U variants for mana's sake. Counterspell will no doubt buff blue but it won't seem like an organic buff, it would ruin the fun of choosing between a handful of viable counterspells.
Make a strictly better cancel, or another cool downside counterspell (logic knot did good on this)
That surge counterspell looks cool, but cantrips are sorc speed so it sucks, it could maybe be good if you run all instants... idk they're trying, give it time friend.
I like revealing cards as a downside, lifeloss is pretty standard, next turn downsides are cool imo (next turn dont untap the lands used to cast or something)
Grow some cahones wotc!!
Holy fuck I asked you guys what you want to see modern grow into, and all you chucklefucks give me is
>fuck you X sucks unban Y
Like you couldn't dream any bigger? Modern is perfect as is minus a few cards? Fucking seriously?
they gave tribal that new equipment in ogw, and goblins got a new bushwacka. Dunno what vamps got since I don't play them.
beware of upcoming t2 goblin meme decks, they may be more fragile than your t1 burn, but they are just as fast.
It's not aggro that holds back the format...
Midrange decks with a bit of defense can stabilize and take over the game (jund). Counterspells fuck tron, they have a bad blue matchup, so with blue in short supply why play a midrange deck like jund when you can hit turn 3 with tron and aggrowin, or drag out the game if you want.
Affinity is kinda the same, counter the cranial plating and they can't aggro you.
We just need more blue guys
turns is the new twin
But remand does work?
Manaleak/spellpierce work too, cryptic is a big cockblock, and snap+remand is a big cockblock too.
U/W has runs logicknot.
Turns can remand your karn, then exhaustion on their turn, then cryptic/snapremand, then win.
Also people should sideboard their terminates for dreadbores vs tron, I think Jund has a good time vs tron but I'm not sure.
>bolts hit walkers
>kills mini lifesteal wormcoil
>decays kill maps
> Summer Bloom
Summer Bloom with Amulet is too oppresive. A 6/6 Titan with Trample is a pain in the ass and only a few decks can deal with that.
It could make a comeback.
Only if Exarch is banned and Wizards dont print more stupid tap/untap creatures.
> Seething Song
Storm is a thing in the magic world. It can get out of control easily os its a no.
> Second Sunrise
No more 60+ rounds plz. Next
Its a Legendary Hatebear that cucks on Infect and Storm but gets fucked in the ass by other decks.
> Wryn Wingmare
Same as Thalia
> Wild Nacatl
Awful top in late game. Not used in burn at all.
> Glistener Elf
If you cant deal with a 1/1 Elf post sb, then your deck is not good enough.
> Inkmoth Nexus
Need a lot of setup since it cost you 2 lands to attack.
> Arcbound Ravager
Affinity have too much sb hate to ban Ravager.
> Eidolon of the Great Revel
Eidolon is not oppresive to deserve a ban
> Atarka's Command
Why should this deserve a ban?
He only works in one deck m8. In that case, Vial should be banned to stop Melfolk cheating creatures.
> Inquisition of Kozilek
Affects most decks except Tron and Eldrazi. White Leylines exist so it doesnt deserve a ban.
I don't know what list he's playing, but it makes sense. Thoughtseize, Clique beats and hold up countermagic are basically how I side for Tron when I play Esper Control. That's basically what he's playing maindeck, which is why he gets shit on so hard by aggro.
I can't tell if transfigure would be fun or if it would be the absolute worst thing to ever let happen in the game.
>Legacy staples were only $200 a playset six years ago
>They have more than quadrupled in price since then
Is this card game healthy?
Holy shit, what happened during Theros block to double that price?
So are Wizards genuinely too blind and stupid to see that SCG has an absurd amount of power over their secondary market to the detriment of their actual customers, or are they complicit in it?
Wizards has only had increased profits over the last decade so they give no fucks.
SCG only has as much power as autists who throw money at them give them outside of them running tournaments, which they do at 10x the production values of WOTC themselves.
