While I would personally love for that to sort of happen, I have no idea what has driven you to believe this paranoid babble.
No offense but if you like midrange grindfests with dumb creatures and 3 CMC removal, Standard seems more up your alley. It's one thing to have midrange decks like Jund or Abzan, which is completely fair and I enjoy, and another completely different one to have decks with 5-6 CMC dumb midrange creatures, 3 CMC removals and 5 CMC wraths. We don't need another dumbed down format. If they want more cards to impact the format maybe design good blocks like the Tarkir one? It was so good that 14 or so cards through the whole block shook Modern heavily, two of them even being so powerful they saw a ban across the board.
I prefer midrange decks than some stupid linear decks (read combo) and also than boring control. Midrange decks offer you all aspects of game and still being very fair.
But the point of Modern is to showcase all the different archetypes. That means midrange, control, aggro, and combo. Each plays an important part in balancing the format.
