    Re: 4 Card Blind

    I'm really got good at this either.

    I think when I am on the play, I can win, because I can force the race.

    H, otP, Turn 1: Land, Memnite, Hawk, Mennite.
    U, turn 1: Land, go.

    H, turn 2:...

    Well, I remember there was much consternation from people when they started calling Modern "Affinity" decks "Robots" instead. Despite having essentially zero Affinity cards in the decks, people like...

    Re: New Format announced - Pioneer

    Yeah, I mean, it's hard for me to call a deck Burn when Lightning Bolt isn't even legal. I did see CalebD playing a Rg version of Prowess last night though, much like that, plus Atarka's Command.

    Re: New Format announced - Pioneer

    That's not what I was trying to say. Or what MK was trying to say either, I don't think.

    "Less" does not equal "no" in any sense. Less opportunity to capitalize on suboptimal play doesn't mean...

    I agree, generally, with your thesis here, but there are some of the finer point that I slightly disagree with. I do agree that the higher, general power level of cards in Legacy, does mean that...

    Oh, wow, actually I think you are right.

    Chancellor in your hand is a creature card, not a creature.

    Oh, yeah, retrospectively, I'm an idiot. It made sense in my head for a moment, but yeah, I still suck at abstracting cards with no actual cards...

    Right now, I am still a little hazy on...

    We've done this for years here though. I don't disagree with the fact that fetches, when fetchable duals exist, are essentially optimal. I don't disagree with the fact that fetches reduce...

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    While I don't mind some wins, I think these would actually be draws. You can't win the race, so you'd hold Inkmoth back to block, so if I attack, Hawk gets a -1/-1 counter, which then means you...

    Well, I agree in part. I do think that the "needs" of Limited are sort of at odds with Standard. And Standard at odds with Modern. And EDH with the rest. And so on. I've said as much before and...

    I'll have to take your word for it, because I don't know anything about that game.

    But it would not surprise me that they might pull a page from their playbook. I mean, that game has been around...

    Interesting. I mean, I don't disagree. I was just thinking at a "higher level." I don't mean that as a "better level," but rather, one more abstract.

    So, why are we in the sort of doldrums of...

    Well, I certainly don't think that is off the table. In reality, I don't think Wizards actually want Vintage, Legacy, or Modern to "go away" it's just harder and harder to effectively "sculpt" their...

    Well, I didn't really mean that Infect and Dreastill are comparable decks, per se, only that your opponent knowing what you are on might not help them when you are a skilled pilot. In fact, it could...

    Well, keep in mind, that I don't surmise that Modern just disappears. Modern takes on the "Legacy" spot in the "team trios" paradigm, so those will be Standard, Pioneer and Modern events. Modern...

    Well, maybe? I don't know, it's hard to say if anyone really wants that.

    I mean, I'm sure Wizards does, so how hard to do they push it? Then again, most "Pro" Magic player do not like Legacy, so...

    Hogaak was in Modern Masters, it's not legal in this format. And Expedition/Masterpieces don't give a card legality in a format unless it's "main" set prints do.

    Perhaps this is Wizard's "test" of how big the anti-Fetch market is? That is, people who...
