Welcome to the Modern banlist discussion! Here, you can discuss everything related to the banlist, from questioning the possibility of unbans to recent announcements of new bannings.
Please follow a few simple rules while you are here.
All MTGS forum rules apply here. If you see a user flaming, spamming, or trolling for example, please report him/her instead of responding to it.It is okay to discuss Legacy only if it is related to Modern bans and unbans.Discussion about dramatically increasing the size of the banlist by more than 2-3 cards is not allowed. In the past, this sort of discussion has derailed the thread into completely unconstructive debate. There is a fine line between approved ban discussion (e.g. cards that are consistently breaking the turn 4 rule in top tier decks, or cards that make oppressive top tier decks) and spammy, prohibited discussion (e.g. banning Immolating Souleater and Fling because they theoretically break the turn 4 rule). If you see someone doing this, report them instead of responding to it. If you have a question about this, feel free to get in touch with staff to ask. Do not discuss the "death of Modern" or generally claim that it is dying.
Remember, this is a place to discuss, and have fun. Keep it civil.
Quote from Lantern
Same rules apply as all the other ban threads. Don't murder anyone please.
You guys are all serious optimists in expecting unbans. I doubt something gets unbanned for a long long time.
Quote from i-never-smileI also would like Gravetroll back, just because I think it would make the format more interesting. Dredge is a fun deck to play against; the interactions are unique and fresh compared to more typical ones.
Quote from Konstant1nI was wondering why Council of the Absolute had the 'non-creature' clause then I remembered... This is modern magic.
Quote from SteBI saw Elvis riding a unicorn with his buddy Michael Jackson on the night sky yesterday. You can say it didnt happen all you want. It did.
Quote from MastodonWhen I throw a deck together, all I do is stick 3 surgical extractions and 3 pithing needles in the sideboard. Then I think to myself "that'll do"
Quote from TakeYourShoesOffThere is no way Bitterblossom should be unbanned.
I would say safe unbannes are:
Bloodbraid Elf (only if the unban Jace)
Jace TMS (only if they unban BBE)
I will also say I would not be surprised if they banned Deathrite Shaman, but I dont think its needed. If they want to unban BBE Deathrite should go.
All in all Wild Nactl is easily the safest unban along with Visions
Quote from Tittliewinks22Bitterblossom is a safe card to unban now... the amount of MD removal for it is absurd, and fae can only run 4 copies of scion of oona... a 1/1 dies to pyroclasm as well as the rest of the deck. Fae is not nearly as strong as it would have been in standard/extended... Abrupt Decay says hello.
