Quote from Heenock »Why control players always cry for have a tier 1 Blue deck ? There are tons of Blue based decks which are highly performing. (http://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/modern/764899-state-of-modern-thread-bans-format-health-reprints?comment=5630)
There has never been a tier 1 white deck and no one comes to cry "white need some love, pls wizards" ....
You want the modern to become like legacy ? meta of 80% of blue decks and boring battles of counterspells ?
Unban Preordain will help more combo decks (ad nauseam, storm, reanimator) than control decks.
I've been playing legacy for a couple years now, and I don't think I've ever seen "battles of counterspells", Most of the time it's minusing yourself off a FOW to just not lose on the spot, or using countermagic as an attrition tool.
I highly doubt that unbanning one decent cantrip is going to turn the format into a blue hell.
There are also plenty of really strong decks that don't need to play countermagic, thanks to every color getting strong answers, you get tools to keep combo in check like wasteland.
Elves, 43 lands, Death and Taxes, Aggro Loam, the new sweet RB reanimator list, Eldrazi stompy(Which is terrifying to play against), are all really good decks. Sure, meta may be skewed blue, but the difference between a tier 1 and a tier 2, or even tier 3 deck in legacy is a lot smaller than it is in modern, and every color gets to do broken stuff.
And honestly, yeah, I do think that modern could do to be more like legacy. At the very least, you don't need to ban the best deck in legacy every 6 months.
