    Re: 4 Card Blind

    I think you're right; it's a super technical MU because the greedy Kolaghan's is worse than Nez if you get the chance. I think I was thinking "I can't win with arbor cause he'll nuke it so I have to...

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    It's slightly worse than that. If we race with our 1/1s then I eventually win; because even though I'm behind on life the final turn I get to add 2 damage with factory.

    It's not warping the format to have cards that address things. You build around chalice, sphere, field of ruin, discard, big dudes, etc. Just because I offered a pro-blue uncounterable card that...

    * Rishadan Port (you port him every turn and if you have a threat you win)...

    He agrees, you're just misreading his format. I did the same thing as I went over it. Basically he's saying "OTP I get 3 points, OTD I get three points" instead of saying " 6-0 like some people did;...

    I'd prefer only banning the things that need it at the moment. We've had one round. The meta isn't stale. We haven't gotten to do a second round where people know a bit better about what to expect...

    I believe you're correct, rethinking it. I was thinking you had to choose between pumping vs blocking (basically during your own upkeep) but you can actually pump if I don't attack. I'll go revise

    This is also an argument to keep wasteland though (and thoughtseize, and similar)

    For example, my Factory decks survive Thoughtseize just fine and my blossom deck survives wasteland just fine.
