Being that my original post in this thread was a direct opinion for the original posters topic, (which he then replied to agreeing with), and everything after was me replying to your derailing rant, I'd have to disagree. The topics I introduced here were all in response to your earlier spam.
The topic created is about speculating how the committee may handle changing the rules or what new rules may come. This doesn't mean an exclusive conversation regarding the vintage banlist.
We've already shared our opinions, so how's about we don't make this topic more uninviting for actual conversation.
Yea take a chill pill man. I wasn't taking part in your discussion and whatever is going on that's making you go on such tilt. My posts were adding to the topic of this entire thread - speculation about the upcoming banlist adjustment, and my hopes and expectations.
Honestly why do you take such offense to half of the posts I make? You seem to take everything so personal, like my opinions are always directed at you and only you. I don't care about you or your opinions. I'm only on these forums to talk about the game.
Yet still you all whine. And you're all so excited to have another excuse to say "whoops, looks like it was a huge mistake!" that you didn't even realize that IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SOLVING THIS PROBLEM. You just immediately knee-jerk "oh, there's a problem that's companion is related to? MAKING COMPANIONS WORK IN COMMANDER WAS A MISTAKE! What was the problem again?"
My problem is not with the companion mechanic. I'm all for exploring new mechanics.
Lutri shouldn't be banned as an optional commander or 99 inclusion. There is zero logical reason why Lutri can't be a commander when Naru Meha, Master Wizard exists. Not defining a use-as-commander vs in-99-specific banlist is getting absurd, because there absolutely is zero reason why Lutri can't be played in the 99.
And really, the currently available companions are not adding too much to the format. Drastically limiting card selection by forcing odd/even only cmc, for a situational furnace of rath that dies to creature removal, or a really bad gamble at a situational reanimation spell? A simic draw spell that means you can't play staples like farseek and sakura-tribe elder? A 5-cmc mana-dork strictly worse than prismatic geoscope?
If any would be banned then obviously it should be yorion, sky nomad, because it's pre-requesits just can't happen.
Lurrus and maybe zirda/keruga have potential, but honestly these cards are just not very helpful for deck creation in this format.
So after considering all this, IMO the easiest fix is simple. Just disable the companion mechanic in EDH.
