  1. Re: 2020 sets announced - Theros and Zendikar return, Ikoria as a new plane

    I wouldn't mind a Stoneforge Mystic reprint in Standard. It'd help the price, plus unless they go and print stuff as powerful as the Swords again it should be fine.

    The last equipment to see real...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    Stoneforge Mystic doesn't seem like a good fit in Bant Spirits. Bant Spirits is an aggro deck, and Stoneforge is absolutely not an aggro card. Maybe if it were a Spirit it could work, but even that...

    Sticky: Poll: Re: All B/R update speculation.

    I think you're underestimating how powerful Hogaak is without Faithless Looting; Looting wasn't even responsible for the most absurd starts in the deck. But let's suppose that it's possible Faithless...

    Absolutely no way. Hogaak was perfectly capable of crazy powerful starts without Faithless Looting. Yeah, the loss of Faithless Looting hurts the deck, but banning just Faithless Looting also means...

    Re: Modern Horizons Spoilers

    What makes me sad about this set is how cool it would be if it were in Standard.

    Also:
    In what way does it help the deck running Karn? A deck running Karn is likely to be hurt by it (as Karn...

    In Standard they have. In supplemental products they've bent things a bit more. Though honestly, I don't think Stasis would even be good in Modern; the card seems way too slow. Wasn't the main reason...

    Re: Modern Horizons Spoilers

    The most recent deck on that list is from almost a year ago, and it didn't see particularly frequent play even before that. My point is that if Containment Priest was as gobsmackingly good as was...

    You're talking nonsense here. It's extremely difficult for a deck to get "killed off" by a sideboard card that's only playable in White decks and dies to practically every single piece of removal in...

    A huge problem with Tron? You mean the deck that didn't get a single Top 8 in the last four Grand Prix? Seriously, I feel like Tron could be less than 1% of the metagame and people would still whine...
  10. Re: Blood Moon really should be colorshifted to Green

    Not counting Green/Red cards, there's been only one anti-nonbasic land card printed in Green in the last 10 years, Wave of Vitriol, and even that isn't so much an anti-nonbasic card so much as the...

    That's true.

    However, Sensei's Divining Top makes it a whole lot more likely and makes it so that the matches that do go to time last longer.

    The last ban there was in Modern was nearly 2 years ago. How long does a format have to go between bans to no longer qualify as "ban[ning] the good stuff all the time"? Heck, Legacy's had more bans...

    What I find obnoxious about Lavinia is that it only affects opponents. I think a hate card like that should be symmetrical, as Gaddock Teeg was.

    So I've never really paid too much attention to pricing trends from Masters Editions because they were never cards I needed, but I could use a few Tarmogoyfs and they just got reprinted in this set....

    Re: [UMA] Ultimate Masters Edition (?)

    I don't think they would even have to go back down to the original Modern Masters MSRP, just stick with the $9.99 price point they've been using for the recent Modern Masters sets.

    It'd take more than a Brainstorm ban for Treasure Cruise to be of reasonable power level. That thing ran roughshod over Modern, which didn't even have Ponder or Preordain. You'd need to at least also...

    The fact Standard has been pretty awful for the last 2-3 years probably did a lot to make people like the company less. It's managed to improve a lot recently (and for the first time in a long time,...

  20. Re: New format 'Premodern' if you have not heard about it!!

    It seems a bit odd for a format called "Premodern" to skip over the earliest sets (it starts at 4th Edition/Ice Age), but maybe it's to skip over the really expensive stuff.

    Some of the bans on...

    I don't think so, as he made a point to note Long's lack of disqualifications, plus I know Rosewater has said in the past he doesn't think Mike Long was a cheater.
