Challenge your playgroup to have one day a match where all decks are banned from any card that contains “search” and (not or; restriction is having both) “library” printed on them.
The point of Singleton is to push game variety. Searching for your cards is a crutch.
There, I said it.
Humans are afraid of the unknown and don’t like putting things up to chance, it is scary for them. Many people play Magic because it is something they understand and can control, granting them stability.
I have to keep my hands busy and have background noise else my focus greatly diminishes. I acknowledge MtG is an escape and probably the most controlled part of my life.
Having played of over 20 years I have learned winning isn’t everything, or rather, I define what it means to win. Maybe I win by killing my opponents, maybe I win by stealing someone’s creature and hitting them in the face with it, maybe I win by dealing at least 5 damage to all creatures on the board with a source that has lifelink, or block an all out effect with a Fog effect, or politic my way to second place.
I enjoy many decks, but my chaos deck was built for Chaos and only Chaos. The deck has three missions: don’t be the last one standing, creature as much chaos as possible, and don’t be the first eliminated. If I rules-win with that deck, I did something wrong, and if one card causes a win repeatedly (like Forced Fruition) it is cut from the deck.
I used to game to be the best and in one game I spent hours perfecting everything and four hours in to a typical six hour practice session, I realized I had wanted to throw my laptop across the room for the past few days. This “game” wasn’t fun for me, winning had become everything and ruined what little joy I had.
I’ve returned to that game, but only to play casually. Just like Magic. I could have quit my summer job and ran the GPs during Theros block. Spent my time traveling away from my S.O. and said summer job I wish I still had (but I needed to pay bills :/). I almost sacrificed the joy in my life to be the best... until rotation.
TL;DR = if your Meta is too competitive, try something more casual. Your soul will thank you.
I would like to point out that Ramp spells like Rampant Growth are tutors. This is to illustrate that one card can cover multiple slots, freeing up more space.
There are also no shortage of removal spells. Even if every player followed these numbers rigidly there would still be a great variety in each section.
