And I'm guessing the anti-Lotus stuff gets banned in the first two rounds anyway. Should make for an interesting season, I think.

But anyway, so far the creatures and lands only season seems very popular.
It's less anti-Lotus and more anti-artifact, because Mana Crypt is playable and important in making the anti-strategies worse, likely to the point that the format just goes straight to "what's the best 5-drop/6-drop" every round. Seems boring.
