    Neglible life loss and just outright cool name. I'd play it just for its cool factor

    Deliberate Engineers 3R
    Creature - Goblin Artificier U
    3R, T: Return target artifact from your graveyard to the battlefield. At the beginning of the next end step, sacrifice it. When you do, it deals damage to each player equal to its converted mana cost.
    2/2

    "Perfect!"

    I just want to be selfish here and say that, just for me, personally, I'm happy this ban is a thing. I hate playing against that stupid card.

    I promise I'll look at the bigger picture in another post.

    Unrelenting Desire R
    Sorcery C
    Create a colorless Treasure artifact token with "T, Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any color".
    At the beginning of your upkeep, you may pay R. If you do, return Unrelenting Desire from your graveyard to your hand

    Planeswalker in each booster? Or a card mentioning planeswalkers in each booster? The second works for all rarities and is possible with modern printing technology. Maybe three cards in each booster either being a planeswalker or mentioning them. Limited will be weird in that case tho. But I really have issues figuring out what else this whole ordeal is supposed to be. I don't think the Kamigawa treatment of planeswalkers is going to work out at all.

    I'm glad all of you believe that current Burn is managable. I really care about Burn so the fact that it isn't a problem lightens my heart. I was really worried because Skewer really makes the deck that much stronger. Good thing it's so easy to sideboard against.

    This reads so well. 6 mana for a reanimation plust +1/+1 for your whole team. I've never played it tho.

    I think they should have been more cautious printing Skewer the Critics. It's definitely upped Burn's power significantly. I'm unsure what the correct costing should have been, however. Instant with nonspectacle cost of 3R? Burn thread says it's cast for R about 80% of the time, and with that rate, 2R is fine to pay for it every once in a while. Another issue is that I'm unsure what to ban from Burn if it runs out of control. Probably Eidolon?

    Another go at a modern cmc 2 blue counterspell that's fair in Standard.

    Stop It UU
    Kicker - Discard a card.
    Counter target spell unless its controller pays 2. If Stop It was kicked, counter that spell instead.

    The lack of Splinter Twin does not mean battlecruiser Magic is the only viable thing in Modern. Simply because battlecruiser isn't the only viable thing in Modern. Infact, I'm not sure what decks are battlecruiser beside maybe... Does Tron count? Battlecruiser basically means EDH or Rise of the Eldrazi limited, neither of which resemble Modern at all.

    Anyways. It's ridiculous to have a deck exist that you cannot tap out against on turn 3 onwards. That's all it is. There's a difference between that and that it's horrible to be fatesealed to death against Jace, in regards to the WotC quotes. You cannot tap out against Splinter Twin turn 3. It only got worse over time due to being a blue deck with permission. This was the situation when the deck was legal. Whether being fatesealed to death was a thing would depend on the strength of Jace, which they never tested as he was never in the format. Wizards has data on the first, the second was a wrong assumption with reasonable justification behind it.

    Flying Pig
    (G/U) Creature - Boar Bird R
    (You can't cast Flying Pig.)
    Flying
    "That? That will work when pigs fly - I mean, when sharks walk - I mean, when oozes think - I mean..."
    2/2

    I see this as an answer against search. Imo too much of a silver bullet in the 100. I wonder how often it would actually work out when gathered and cast.

    Also, importantly, his power is very subtle, and don't draw as much aggression as many other PWs.

    Hero of Oxid Ridge doesn't belong in a 360 powered list. Hellrider does the same job far better in most situations.

    FTK is boring but incredibly good. You can exclude it until you want to give red a power boost.
