Quote from Spsiegel1987 »Its not healthy to see 8 or 9 gy hate in people's 75.
Quote from Mtgthewary »I hope hoogak is the target. Don't need to see it in dredge after we ban bridge
Quote from Earthbound21 »
I will not be replying to rebuttals that are not at least as fleshed out as my assertion. If you're grown up enough to use the internet, you are grown up enough to understand that posturing, nit picking, and corner cases are not enough to constitute a rebuttal to an argument. You will attack my argument in full or you will not be getting a response from me.
Quote from cfusionpm »I remember when "battle of sideboards" was a ban criteria. Now 8 pieces of GY hate in your 75 is supposed to be "normal."
Quote from cfusionpm »So if people are weary of Hogaak's ban potential as soon as two weeks from now, and refuse to buy it in paper to show it off dominating a large GP, then we're just in for yet another period of insufferable misery in Modern?

Why do I play this format again? /shrug
Quote from Deadkitten »So you're saying that those of with the deck should play as much as possible online before the B&R date. Well if I must, I can take one for the team. For the sake of the format.
Quote from FoodChainGoblins »*I'm also very happy that my buddy won the "win a Mustang" tournament down in Alabama with Hogaak. That if the definition of "getting your money's worth." So far for me with Hogaak, I've gotten around $90 worth of prizes, but the Hogaaks cost me $80, so I have a long way to go to get my money's worth, especially considering store credit and gas prices TO tournaments.
Quote from BloodyRabbit_01 »Metagame is perfectly fine. If they are going to ban something, it will probably be Bridge. But Hogaak is nowhere close to a Tier 0.
Quote from BloodyRabbit_01 »IMHO ‘sideboard wars’ are a constant of every format. Grave hate is only a part of it. In the same way as Midrange decks usually pack 7-8 cards against a Tron to have a chance vs it.
Let’s see what it happens at GP/PT, anyway.
Quote from FoodChainGoblins »It had 189 players. (Living in California, I was unable to go.) Jody Keith and Aaron Barich (of SCG Open fame) were in the top 8 and the top 16 from what I heard.
Quote from BlueTronFTW »I don't think there will ever be a time where you don't want four exile gy effects. Game's changed. Grayeyard is now just another resource. What WOTC really needs to do is print more versatile cards, as they have been doing, that say, deals 2 damage or exiles two cards for one mana.
