Quote from BloodyRabbit_01 »If you ban Looting, you kill half the format. Is totally unreasonable, and Wizards knows it.
Quote from Ayiluss »I'm not sure if I like this. As I said in my previous post with this deck gone Tron will come back and we have metagame where fair decks are dead except for uw. I wish I was wrong on this one but I'm very sure this is (unfortunately) going to happen.
Quote from lukey52 »All things considered I'd say this ends up as a win for modern. I'm still shocked at some of the cards on the ban list considering what is legal but I'm glad they did what they could to not disrupt other decks and also keep the Hogaak deck as a competitive option.
I am starting to get worried about WU control though. With bridge gone and the Hogaak deck slowing down in general sweepers will become far more effective. On top of that with the 4 field of ruin 2 surgical package tron is a far less scary matchup than it used to be so if people reckon tron will be back that's pretty grim.
It's not like there's any 1 card in WU that is too strong it's just that in the last 2 years the deck has got access to field of ruin, opt, big teferi, little teferi, narset, jace, force of negation, dovin's veto and other less played options like fof and search for azcanta. That is a ton of tools that have really pushed the deck to the top.
Quote from Melkor »Sad Commander player asks- I don't suppose there is any home at all for a pile of now almost worthless Paradox Engine in Modern ?
Quote from tronix »solid announcement. i think many of us, including myself, were and are still hoping for some unbans; especially moreso along the lines of the precedent they set last year with the jace/bbe unbans. however for a non-rotating format like modern, and with the higher frequency of b&r announcements there isnt any rush.
if anything the format has been too chaotic as of late. better to give things time to settleQuote from Melkor »Sad Commander player asks- I don't suppose there is any home at all for a pile of now almost worthless Paradox Engine in Modern ? its shown up as a 1-of in urza lists. other than that the card is just way too slow to be relevant in a format like modern.
if you are really sitting on a stack of them id bite the bullet quick and dump them as quickly as possible.
Quote from Cranial_extraction »"Our goal is not to eliminate graveyard strategies from the Modern metagame, but rather to weaken this version of the graveyard combo archetype that has proven too powerful for other decks to reasonably adapt to."
I take this as a shot at people asking for looting to be banned. You are perfectly capable of adapting to looting decks. You just want dad to punish everyone else for playing them. LONG LIVE FAITHLESS LOOTING!!!
