>>45277376
white border objectively looks better, I've asked non magic players and they overwhelmingly prefer white border

you only think white border is worse because you associate it with low value

the correct choice is to reintroduce white border but only for high value cards, all mythics and foils as well as rare promos will now be white border

>>
>>45277571
Soul Sisters is a fine tier 3 deck. It'll do fine at your FNM but anything above you'll probably get smoked.

Just the way it is.
>>
>>45277572
There's pretty much nothing that can stop this deck besides one mana removal and not tapping out turn one.

I think that modern has reached a turning point.

They either unban things and allow the format to speed up. Or they ban the best deck in modern every year.

It's better than Soul Sisters

>>45277601
With a sideboard of something like 1 Chalice 1 Anti-LD of your choice 1-2 Pithing Needle 2-4 Melira 1-4 Anti-burn (Swagtusk, Feed the Clan), Gut Shots, Nature's Claims and Warping Wails you have a chance to bounce back g2/3 vs all of those. 15-20 damage by t3 with a free thoughtseize from Eldrazi Workshop is too much but either Temple or Eye is getting banned after the PT anyway.
>>
>>45277606
um. they are pretty clearly going to just keep banning things.
>>
>>45277584
I don't. Stony Silence and Ghost Quarter makes the matchup pretty 50/50.

>>45277608
It doesn't hurt to split the sisters, to be honest. So it's just an extra precaution that I have no reason not to take.

Also if the sisters deck has removal it is a fair match against infect.
>>
>>45277631
> Stony Silence and Ghost Quarter
As a Tron pilot, trust me it really doesn't. A Ghost Quarter is so much negative tempo for you while allowing me to cast Stirrings and Scrying without an egg or giving you life it's not even funny, your best bet is to beat my face in with a fat Pridemate by t3/4. Tron never keeps an opener without Nature's Claim g2/3 unless it has natural Wurm/Ugin/Karn t3 (on the play you can crack map before SS).
>>
>>45277645
>I can win 10-0 matchups!
>>
>>45277632
tron has always been weak to decks that are very fast and that is what eldrazi is, it comes out fast and is also huge and resiliant against the removal that tron has

you need fast tron and a wurmcoil or you are in trouble

worst of all is that tron just isnt better than eldrazi at anything, theres no advantage to the deck
>>
>>45277529
I don't think you understand what CoCo does and where it works best. You don't have a single 3 drop in there, the best you can hope for is getting equal (2 two drops for 4 mana)
>>
>>45277657
Not only is Eldrazi fast, but Ugin's -X is useless at stabilizing the board.
>>
>>45277645
Honestly, the only rough matches sisters had were tron, bogles and bloom. I'm not sure how it would fare against eldrazi, but with the lifegain, token chumps, and ghost quarters I could see it win. Getting a serra's ascendant online would probably win the game.

Don't underestimate the sisters. You can grind harder than jund, eat burn and go just as fast as affinity. Gonna start playing it again and see how it does. My lgs was full of tron so I stopped for a while. Maybe the meta has changed enough now. My other deck is pretty good against eldrazi anyway, but I'd like to be able to handle them either way.

Eye is fine compared to temple. Even if eye was banned, temple still allows for turn 2 thought-knot and turn 2 reality smasher with simian spirit guide. Eye of Ugin is legend so they can't play two and Ugin + Urborg doesn't allow for the turn 2 thought-knot.
>>
>>45277749
It's broken in the same way tron is: as soon as wizards starts printing better ways to interact with nonbasic land bases, it'll crumble into dust.

no you're retarded, eye is the more broken land and its not even close

eye taps for 2 for every creature you play effectively, so it often ends up "tapping" for 4 or 6 mana

Nothing's as fast as it since they keep banning stuff.

If they ban eye then we'll get a grindy eldrazi deck early plays replaced with targeted discard and removal. (jundrazi/junkdrazi) Likely heartless summoning to get the discounts, the creatures are great.The mana base will be fragile as fuck.

>>45277833

>>
>>45277835
How does it feel to be retarded?
>>
>>45277823
But it doesn't allow for degenerate turn 2 and 3 plays. Sure they can play mimic and endless one for free, but it prevents a turn 2 thought-knot and a turn 3 reality smasher without simian. Plus it makes colorless mana matter more as ugin doesn't generate colorless even with urborg.

Eye of Ugin is the logical ban. It takes away some of the acceleration, it isn't in print anymore, and it takes away the inevitability of the game.

I don't disagree with what you're saying, but the suggestion that Twin "barely won anything" is ludicrous. Twin won 2 PTs, with many more top 8s and was similarly dominant on the GP scene, I think it won something like 7 GPs and put up a bunch more top 8s too.

As long as they keep doing, what makes you think people will stop doing it?

Also I believe their motives for banning twin, and pod to some point, were not that simple and had more to do with their own self interest. They downright said after the fact that part of the twin ban was "Making the pro tour exciting" not to even mention their clear intent to push BFZ cards this whole event which would have happened even if memedrazi didn't break the pro tour.
>>

Eldrazi draft chaff has the better match up in the mirror. Other eldrazi beats everything else.

To be fair, Chapin is a fucking moron. A few of the very loudest, most obnoxious people were bitching about the fact that Siege Rhino just got slammed into Pod, and so Pod got the axe for the "design space" argument they occasionally drag out and ritualistically beat with shit like SFM. Nobody was bitching about Twin. The deck wasn't dominating, it didn't break the rules, and the ban came seemingly out of fucking nowhere. Anyone who didn't have their nose firmly planted in WotC's collective ass was left wondering what the hell Wizards was thinking, because the Twin ban doesn't make blue better.

Eldrazi, on the other hand? People have been muttering about this here and there since OGW got spoiled. There was a general realization, especially among older players and pros, that we already kinda had two Sol lands for that deck already, and that Legacy-style Eldrazi Stompy was going to be a thing. Even a few people on cardsellers' payrolls questioned whether the decision was intended to let Eldrazi flourish at the PT.

6/8-ing the Top 8 is only causing people to bandwagon behind something the smart players already knew: letting Eldrazi have 8 sol lands and then printing cheaper, more efficient Eldrazi was a horrible decision.

The wierd thing is that the bw eldrazi build that started the hype wasn't even played. That version and the other midrange versions could survive a eye ban which despite everyone's bitching I don't see happening before they ban the tron lands. The main reason it was so dominate is because it's new and people tried a completely new build of it that hasn't been seen before. And affinity still dominated like usual but no ban calls there.
