Quote from Teia Rabishu »It's quite probable that hurting the fair decks of the format by removing their ramp + pressure one-mana planeswalker would advantage unfair decks too much to be worth it.
Quote from Teia Rabishu »They have tons of data from MTGO Competitive leagues and Format Challenges to go on as far as DRS' prevalence goes, and if you look at the results, sometimes they surprise you in how DRS isn't always the top dog.
Quote from Teia Rabishu »...it does pop up in multiple archetypes (aggro, tempo, control, even combo to an extent if you consider Elves) enough to say that it doesn't put any one deck or archetype at the forefront of the format.
Quote from Teia Rabishu »Right, but that doesn't address the actual argument I'm making, which is that DRS is old enough to be an ingrained staple in the format.
Quote from Teia Rabishu »...how long does a card need to warp the format around it for in order to be okay?
Quote from Teia Rabishu »Quote from drmarkb »the card has not become ingrained like broken Brainstorm has.
Why hasn't it, by this point? RTR is like 6 years old by now. That's more than enough time for a staple to become ingrained.

Quote from sealteamfive »I'm curious as what ya'll believe are the most versatile duals in terms of flexibility for future deck building? I currently have x3 Scrubland, x3 Badlands, x1 Plateau, x1 Bayou, x1 Underground Sea, & x1 Tropical Island. I had also planned on trying to complete the set of Bayou, so I could play Elves, but then I saw the price of Gaea's Cradle and quickly abandoned that plan. So right now I'm just trying to lay down some sort of mana foundation that I can build on in the future. I really appreciate any thoughts or suggestions; thanks, folks!
Quote from KnickM »Quote from crimhead »Big Tabernacle spike.
Tabernacle is the new Black ... Lotus.
It's way more playable, and an essential part of a winning Legacy deck that will never be reprinted. I wish that I could be surprised, but this is the world in which we live.
