Unfortunately that thread was deleted by a EU user who did not agree to the new terms and conditions of the site. Thanks for pointing it out, I've fixed it. If the explanation provided by tronix is not enough, then try the new link.Quote from Maorri »When I click on the "Here" link from the below section of forum rules I am taken to a page that says forbidden. I would like to know how to use a cards tag so I don't break forum rules. Thank you for your help.
Use Deck/Card Tags
When posting a list talking about card(s), please used their corresponding tags. This makes the conversation easier, as people can now see exactly what card(s) you're talking about. An explanation on how to use them is here. For new posters, moderators and other users will just remind you to use them. For repeat offenders or veteran posters who frequently forget, you might get a warning or infraction.

That is true. With the new EU laws we are unable to have any content that the original user did not opt-in for keeping on the site. Because of this a new primer and thread must be made from scratch.Quote from antlorgut »Thank you so much Torpf. Then, I think it is impossible to relink the previous primer of this deck right?
Jan 30, 2019It might not be spring yet, but here at MTGS we want to get ahead on spring cleaning so we're rolling out our primer update initiative. As many of you know, with the change of ownership, some users have not returned to the site which has left certain threads deleted. At the same time, many of the primers in Established are out of date, so we are calling on users who would like to step up and take over ownersip of these primers to help get the Modern subforum up to date again.Posted in: Modern
If you would like to take over a primer then have a peak at the "How to create/take over primers in the Modern subforum" thread, and then PM the modteam (Ulka, Torpf, CavalryWolfPack, Xaricore) with what threat you would like to make the new primer for.
Lastly, if you think any of the threads listed below don't need a new primer, or you think one should be added, please PM the modteam with why and we'll take care of it.

Jan 24, 2019As per the subforum rules, please keep all ban/unban discussions to the State of Modern thread.Posted in: Modern
As this thread has gone off topic from OP's original intention, and since the both threads are quite similar and looking to discuss the modern metagame/health, we ask that all further discussions on the topic are taken to the State of Modern thread in order to keep all of the discussions in one place.
Jan 23, 2019Since the banning on Monday it is clear that KCI will no longer be sticking around as KCI. As such, it is getting moved to Deck Creation while players figure out how to salvage the deck, or move to a new one. Beyond that, the primer hadn't been updated since 2013 so now is a great time to start a new thread with a fresh OP. We will give it some time, but if everyone is moving to a new thread then this will eventually become archived as any future iterations of the deck will be very different.Posted in: Modern Archives - Proven
EDIT: It's clear this deck is dead, so I am archiving it. You can continue the next iteration of the deck over at the Eggs primer. Happy Brewing!
Jan 23, 2019Torpf posted a message on Pro's and Con's of banning Aether Vial and Mox Opal?Thread locked. Please remember to read the Modern Subforum Rules which is stickied at the top of every non-thread page before posting, and to take all banlist discussions to the State of Modern thread.Posted in: Modern

Jan 21, 2019Posted in: ModernWelcome to the State of Modern Thread!
Lately, Modern community members have expressed interest in talking holistically about the challenges and problems facing Modern. Whether or not Modern has "challenges" or "problems" is up for debate, but what is clear is that people want to talk about all of these issues in one unified setting.
As such, Modern staff are opening this thread as a replacement for the old "Banlist Discussion" thread and the "State of the Meta thread." You can use this thread to talk about any and all of these varied Modern issues and their intersection. This thread will be heavily moderated, so be sure to read the rules before posting; anyone who posts in this thread is assumed to have read and understood these rules.
- Bans, unbans, and all things related to the banlist and banlist policy
- Metagame health and diversity
- Reprint suggestions and reprint philosophy
- New cards and design philosophy
- Prices and Modern finance
- Archetype definitions
- Format health, successes, and challenges
- Anything that constructively relates to these different issues
Prohibited topics and behavior
- All MTGS forum rules and Modern subforum rules apply here.
- Rules spotlight: No flaming (insulting other users) or trolling (baiting other users into a hostile response). Posts must be civil and respectful.
- Rules spotlight: No spamming. Posts must be constructive, on-topic, and supported with evidence and argumentation.
- No format bashing. If you don't like Modern, that's fine, but constructively/respectfully explain why and be optimistic.
- Similarly, do not use this thread to voice grievances, complaints, and personal gripes without constructive/respectful suggestions.
- If you see a user flaming, spamming, trolling, or breaking any other rule, report him/her instead of responding to it.
The mod team will strictly enforce these rules. Please make this a place where people are unafraid to post constructive thoughts.
Update from the January 21, 2019 B&R Announcement:
Krark-Clan Ironworks is banned.
Next B&R Announcement:
March 11, 2019
Current DCI Modern Banned List
Here are some reasons that cards are banned in Modern:
- Some cards enable a top tier deck to consistently win on turn 3 or earlier. Because this violates the "turn 4" rule of the format, the following cards have been banned:
- Other cards have been banned because they make certain decks too consistent/reliable and thus stagnate the format. Here are some examples of these cards:
- Some cards, currently only one, are banned because they were just mistakes. This card is one of the most broken cards of all time and has been banned in almost every format where it was or is legal:
- There are also some cards that were banned for logistical reasons. These cards made tournaments last too long and were banned to make events run smoother. They were not necessarily banned for power reasons.
- Finally, one card is banned because it creates a problematic "battle of sideboards" in Modern.
The following are links to WotC's in-depth explanations as to why cards have or have not gotten banned since the beginning of the format:
Krark-Clan Ironworks is banned
Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Bloodbraid Elf unbanned
October 2017: No changes
March 2017: No changes
Gitaxian Probe and Golgari Grave-Troll are banned
Eye of Ugin banned, Ancestral Vision and Sword of the Meek unbanned

Birthing Pod/Treasure Cruise/Dig Through Time banned, Golgari Grave-Troll unbanned
Bitterblossom/Nacatl unbanned. DRS banned
Addition of Second Sunrise
Addition of Bloodbraid Elf and Seething Song
