I disagree about the latter statement.
Imo the new set does almost nothing for the eldrazi processors deck (the one that started all the hype to begin with)
Unless you are talking about the more recent Heartless eldrazi lists that have been popping up, those do gain a lot but are also a quite different deck with a quite different role in the meta and none of the benefits of the mainboard graveyard hate.
Imo the new set will most likely spawn a quite different form of eldrazi decks wich won´t have that much in common with the original thing (eldrazi processors)

Quote from oaomcg »With so many Eldrazi decks and Tron getting so much stronger post Twin ban I'm going to be pushing 8 seas big time. I've half-heartedly tried it a handful of times and dismissed it over and over but I think now is a great time to give it a real chance.
As a side note... if anyone can find a single 9th edition FOIL Sea's Claim for sale online I would be extremely impressed. It apparently exists only in theory.

Quote from CoBTyrannon »
No aether vial, 2MoW and 3 Seas are my critical points for the maindeck. 2 Spellskite for the sideboard.
I want more creatures overall right now. I also want Vial to come back from the draw against aggro and i definitely don't want to lose strength against Jund. Spellskite just seems less useful atm.
