    Re: Extirpate / surgical extraction deck

    Plague Engineer could effectively "surgical" any x/1 from your opponents deck, and it acts as a slow wincon.

    Re: 8-Rack

    To be honest, I don't actually know. Your guess on the meta is probably better than mine, even with you not playing it in a while!

    Even better- the venue added another 100 to the max capacity so they are contacting people on wait lists. Prize payout was also upped, I believe.

    In that case, if this is true, modern will get dark ritual. EDIT- these appear just to be variants like the Japanese cards, H, did you see something else about it relating to MH2?
