    Re: [Deck] Death and Taxes

    Hey that's very nice of you. I also think the current state of this message board (and message boards in general) is kinda tragic. I grew up on message boards and think that Discord is just a poor...

    Re: [DTB] Death and Taxes

    The card feels similar to Prelate to me in that it's very good against Storm and Miracles, but a blank against fair creature decks. Considerably worse than Prelate vs Delver, Lands, Loam. It's a two...

    I care about legacy being an interesting and dynamic format more than I care about the legality of the card Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. I don't just 'not care' about Probe, I think the card led to...

    I feel like you guys keep trying to bring up DnT examples as if I have some special irrational feelings reserved for the deck I play. But...I don't. If DnT were the best deck in legacy for an...

    The point isn't that there are 15k legacy-worthy cards, the point is that as a % of magic cards printed, the number that have been deemed too powerful/disruptive/whatever for the legacy format is a...

    TNN, Chalice and Griselbrand should all be banned and all conceivably could be one day. I think Griselbrand is probably the only one where the fanboys might kick up a stink. Most people would be...

    I think you make some good points, in that Probe was probably the 3rd most powerful cantrip in legacy, and only currently abusable by a few shells. But you overreach when you say it's just 'because...

    Chalice should obviously be banned. It's the most feel-bad card in legacy, leads to the most non-games of any card in legacy, and does not reward skill in any sense.

    Thalia is less powerful and...

    The 'criteria' for banning is more complex than just 'ban the most powerful cards'. Probe was a powerful card that irked people and decreased the amount of meaningful play to a game. Wizards' aim for...

    Literally nothing else, most of my testing has been 'watch Eddie stream and try to convince him that Knight of the Reliquary is a bad magic card'.

    I tested this deck pretty extensively against Miracles, something like 20 games, and I don't really think it's favored - your clock is just a little too slow and you're pretty much priced into...

    Yeah, they put batman symbols on planeswalkers. Perhaps they're purposely sabotaging the program at this point.

    Yeah, and if people were reliably casting planeswalkers on turn 1, there would be a problem.

    A fine alternative to banning Chalice is to just ban the Sol lands. Chalice is a much more reasonable...

    Chalice decks are terrible for magic and the card leads to more stupid games than any card in the format other than maybe SnT. The card is already restricted in Vintage, which sets a precedent its...

    Re: [DTB] Death and Taxes

    Eldrazi is definitely not a good matchup, at best it's even. The deck going bigger and playing Walking Ballista hasn't helped. (The saving grace is that Eldrazi players tend to be...Eldrazi players.)...

    Re: [DTB] Death and Taxes

    DnT is really good against tier 2 decks right now and pretty bad against tier 1 decks, which means it's gonna crush locals and do fine in leagues, but it's gonna struggle at larger competitive events.

    DnT is a control deck and we usually want to drag the game out and out card-advantage them rather than beat them quickly with an empty hand. I think if you're gonna shift to a Plateau Stompy...
