    Really? I just beat that deck recently in the tourney. I don't think it's overpowered at all. It's a good deck but it's not broken by any means.

    WrathofRob,

    I personally play a Painter deck, and have put it to the wayside for now, because many players can easily beat it. What colors do you play? Each color usually has a way to kill it, which can be seen in a staple of that color.

    Most combo decks in Legacy kill turn 3 or better, I dont see why this deck can't do the same.

    This is the most absurd whine I've heard in a long time. In case you didn't know, Gaea's Blessing>Grindstone. Taking that into consideration, don't you think we need to ban blessing too?

    I saw the title in CAPS, why did I even click it...?

    Painter/Stone is an interesting, strong, but not overpowered deck to play with and against. I'd actually like to see a reprint of Grindstone, so the decktype is more accessible for the Legacy crowd.

    Not overp. at all. I have a Belcher. I win on turn 2 usually, turn 1 quite usually and turn 3 sometimes. I play Duresses, so I can disrupt my opponent's disruption as usually as Painter's Stone with their FoW's. You can kill Painter's Stone with a StoP, with a PtE, with any creature removal in the format. Also, you can kill it with any artifact removal in the format. Belcher is not affected by those at all. You need 2 combo pieces to build the combo, if you're playing Painter's Stone. Well, I need as many as I can get, but becouse I can play 52x the other combo piece and 8x the other, I get enough usually.

    Sure, Painter's Stone is better in a control metagame, and don't get me wrong - it is a good deck! But, Grindstone doesn't have to be banned.

    dreinal,

    Smart Painter players know to pack 2-3x Stifle, or to use Mikokoro, Center of the Sea to cause a win condition with Gaea's Blessing on the stack.

    The deck is a solid deck, and can perform well. But there are a number of things that can handle it, including Swords to Plowhares, Path to Exile, Pithing Needle, Krosan Grip (cant be Force of Willed), Lightning Bolt, Snuff Out/Smother/Diabolic Edict, your own counterspells, etc....

    ...Really? The combo dies to pithing needle, kgrip, StP, PtE, snuff out, or whatever creature or artifact removal in the format. Hardly needs to be banned it's a solid deck sure but it isn't ban-worthy. If anything LED is closer to being banned than grindstone is as it is far, far more broken than grindstone ever will be.
