Quote from schweinefett »i hate to do this, but in my experience, that sounds like the exact kinda thing that people who've never tried/experienced it in real life would say.
Think about MLD against ramp like this:...
Quote from TheRevanchist »Never understood all the hate for MLD spells. Like others have said, resource denial is part of the game. That's the whole purpose of some decks (I'm looking at you Stax). If your deck gets utterly destroyed by MLD spells, then I would say it's more of an issue with your deck than it is with the spell.
Quote from Pokken »If people are sick of reading about stuff just stop taking part. You have 100% control over what you read. Simic Ascendancy isn't going to get banned just because you didn't tell someone to shut up on the internet.
Quote from SnowBunny »On the other though, MLD has a purpose. It is meant to reign in things like mass ramp. It is meant to punish over extending on land ramp, like how a wrath punishes overextending on creatures and board presence. Like,nothing is more annoying than that Azusa deck that will have 8-9 lands on turn 3-4 and dropping Titans when most people are still trying to get their board state situated, not having any way to stop them because the table banned MLD. I have seen many decks that abuse the general rule of no MLD to have an untouchable field advantage that becomes neigh impossible to stop.
So what do you guys think? Is MLD a cardinal sin or is it a necessary tool?
