Quote from Itsar, the Laughing Onelet me state something - the things I tell you will not be wrong. It is you who will be wrong if you try arguing with me.
Quote from TappingStones »2 player drafting is known as "winston draft" I'll let you do some research on what that is.
Quote from NofWhile its powerlevel is not the same than in 1994, The Abyss is still played in 71% of MD here, hiting the "staple" status in my crowd's heart.
Quote from BlimpyReally? What decks are playing this maindeck? While your group might really like this card for whatever reason, I can't see almost anyone else's playgroup having a number that high for this card.

Quote from DarkmindtoneI don't have percentages, but the card sees a heavy amount of play here as well.

Quote from bondafongThe Abyss is more for the artifact deck imo.
