Quote from DirkGently »Most of the never-to-be-surpassed cards existed at the format’s inception. It’s always just been a question of how much power you’re willing to sacrifice for innovation, and vice versa.
To me, it sounds like you’ve found a formula you think is best, refuse to move off of it, and then blame the format for your own stubbornness.
To be more constructive: I tend to think of some plan that I want to enact, and then build the deck to maximise my ability to execute that plan. If your plan is always just “win” then that’s probably why you don’t see much variety in your lists.

I don't know. Surely old cards had some really broken ass *****cards. But things like Avacyn, Sheoldred or cyclonic rift looks pretty new to me.

Quote from DirkGently »Call me a fool, but I don't think Sheoldred or Avacyn are that great.
Quote from ilovesaprolings »I don't think you are a fool, it's just a meta call.
From what i have saw, auto-includes are a thing even in less competitive metas.
The sky isn't falling and my meta won't die for sure, but since, as you said, power creep is a thing, i hope they won't print another sheoldred, avacyn or cyclonic rift in the near future.
