Quote from WarMachinePrime »Finally validation of what I was trying to get across. Its a great day today.
Fathom Seer is a strict downgrade and much slower and less flexible. It takes 3 mana to cast and has to be played on the opponents main phase. I'm glad Gush is gone.
Same for the other two as well. Now when blue keeps showing up maybe they will think about a Delver, Augur or Brainstorm/Ponder/Preordain ban as well. I shouldn't get greedy, I am ecstatic at this announcement.
Firstly, do you know how Morph cards work?

Yes I do. I also know that your opponent can play Gush on turn 2 with 2 islands either on his/her turn or wait and play it at instant speed as late as your end step. Seer requires 3 MANA (not 2) to cast face down so turn 3 at the earliest with no ramp and on his/her turn during mainphase. Yes they can Morph/Unmorph without using the stack at that point or at any point thereafter. But the point is it isn't as flexible as Gush or as fast as Gush. It may be more resilient (with the 1/3 body) but it is slower and more narrow, it is a strict downgrade.
As for Tron, if there are more aggro decks being unshackled by the control of Blue then Tron better speed up its clock.
The whole point, blue gets weakened a bit. I am ecstatic.
I think that Prismatic Strands and Ghostly Flicker & Displace still need to be banned. Tron is way too good and while Prismatic Strands is normally a tool of fair Boros decks, there is nothing stopping it from being incorporated into Tron.
but are flicker effects really that bad?
