Quote from Ryperior74 »You are aware that casual players were also asking for flash to be banned right?
I’m sure Sheldon and the other rules committee will listen to the casual community as well not just the CEDH (they take casual into factor with bans)
Quote from schweinefett »Yea, that's the thing, right? I get that there's no cost to start the game with an 8-card hand, but it just seems a bit too knee-jerky to not at least debate/consider reintroducing 'banned as general'/'banned as companion'.
By the way, as the rules of EDH stands, since the companion isn't technically in the deck, does colour identity count? I get that it probably should, but not sure if the rules technically say that too.
Quote from Macabre »So, just to clarify, you've interpreted my statement about giving players a chance to better themselves, as "git gud" ?
Quote from Carthage »Give me back my deck slots.
The diversity of the game is already dead. That's the whole point of this topic. It's not interesting for me to make a deck anymore because of how many slots are already taken by broken standalone cards that outclass everything and will forever outclass everything.
Quote from Carthage »"You sound like you just don't want to lose"
"I can't spend money on cards right now"
"I only have the one deck"
"I want to win"
"I prefer games with stronger cards"
"Combo is just part of the game"
Quote from DirkGently »I think a way better example would be expropriate. Maasaybe wotc primarily made it for draft (unlikely for mythic), but most likely for commander I think most would agree. And it suuuuuucks.
