    Re: How to save Legacy

    This isn't true, if you were going to play UW the mana fixing and the ability to be bounced by Teferi (which some people aren't even playing at all) don't outweigh the upside of a better cantrip like...

    Re: How to save Legacy

    There was a 100 player tournament in Beijing at the start of November and probably 90% of the players were Chinese?

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    I think probably a lot

    I think the deck relied on Hymn for grinding vs other fair decks and that's not a realistic plan anymore. Before, you could go under the RUG decks and get some virtual CA...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    True, but oko and veil are also pretty annoying
    I think as long as Oko is a relevant card it gives enchantment-based options a significant upside compared to artifacts (even moreso than previous...
  8. Re: WotC apologizes about canceling the romance between Chandra and Nissa

    What you don't quite seem to get is that "the status quo is good and we should try to preserve it" is itself a political ideology, one which you seem quite willing to push onto everybody else
  9. Re: WotC apologizes about canceling the romance between Chandra and Nissa

    I mean right there in the post you clearly implied that this stance would cause wotc to lose money by alienating a large portion of its playerbase

    Re: [Developmental] GW Opal-Wave

    The new 1-mana rule of law (Deafening Silence) is also perfect for this archetype as it slots in perfectly with Serra's Sanctum etc and Storm combo was one of the worst matchups before. Could be a...
  12. Re: For Fun - Which of the Mystery Playtest Cards would've been played in Legacy

    Does it combo with infernal tutor? Because it also turns your Infernal Tutor into a shock

    It does work pretty well with Experimental Frenzy though

    This might make sense 'in theory', 'in principle', or 'in a vacuum' but seems to be either unnecessarily thinking in absolute terms, or just theorycrafting way too hard and ignoring reality.

    Ok, but there wasn't a proactive threat that beat Wrenn either (except arguably Tendrils). Why is having wrenn be good better than having CB/Hymn be good?

    well, yeah you can cut ports for black sources, but overall I don't think this is worth it if you're doing it just to support 1-2 Munitions Expert

    I guess there are situations where a 10/10 TNN is better than a 3/1 but this is still a pretty good point I think.
