Am I only one completely bored with +1/+1 counter themes in every set? Cant we do some other means of creature enhancement for a change? For instance, threshold was super fun and unique.
There was ‚Level up’ in Rise of the Eldrazi. But that mechanic was not so popular.
I absolutely loved level up. I still use it in EDH all the time.
The argument that threshold is too complicated to keep track of is complete nonsense.
Also, for colours like red and white that have a hard time filling the yard, just print more cards like thrill of possibility
or more simple white cantrips
We already kinda do have level up in Standard though - it's not called that any more, now it's just an overcosted activated ability on a cheap creature that gives it a moderate stat boost or powerful effect later in the game.
