    When did GDS get bad again? It was fine as little as a month ago.
    GDS is just a high variance deck, masquerading as consistent. Either it does its thing and kills you fast with 1 mana protection, or it flounders and does nothing after dealing damage to itself and watching its only threat get killed. I personally hated the feeling from my side of the table when the outcomes of most games felt mostly out of my hands. Either I had a good draw with Stubbs in hand and won, or I didn't and I lost. Perhaps others feel the same way.


    That's literally a description of every deck. "Either you get a good hand and win, or you get a bad hand and lose."

    It seems a little more impactful when your only real win conditions are attacking with one of eight vanilla ground creatures. You play it? If opponents have removal or you don't have your Stub, the deck does a whole lotta nothin.

    The collector number says uncommon, but the symbol is rare.
    Good spot. Never mind then!

    The Force cycle seems like a cycle of safety valves so far. Negation is against unruly combos, Vigor is against unruly prison strategies.

    I'm trying to predict the others now, but I'm at a loss for things that could get out of hand that Red and Black could deal with. White, has some potential for something, but I still can't even guess.

    Hoping for 2 mana Swords to Plowshares in white.

    Have you seen this image floating around? Doesn't look like an official spoiler, but seems like a pretty believable leak, if that's the case.

    As mentioned in the locked thread: Usual disappointment of another lack of unbannings, accompanied by an absolute gutting and slaughter of blue decks in Pauper. I expect nothing less from them at this point.

    Modern is still in desperate need of anything to make it less frustrating to play.

    There are ETB tapped duals that are snow instead of Gates. Only in allied colors though. This set could complete the cycle for enemy colors.

    What a disappointing missed opportunity if they didn't introduce something good or new. Preferably untapped.

    The card could hilariously become parts of humans or UW spirits SB. It's very weak against those decks, at the very least, and allow them to tap out against combo. It's especially good in spirits since it pack a good amount of blue cards.
    Both of those decks want all their spells to attack. It's a lot just to get them to find slots for anything beyond Vial and a few Paths when it comes to noncreatures. Besides, Humans has Freebooter, Meddling Mage, and Thalia and Spirits has Queller, Wanderer, Rattlechains, and Drogskol Captain. I'm not sure either are very interested in this. Maybe Spirits?? Replacing a single SB Negate? Can Humans even reliably produce blue mana for non-humans?

    Splinter Twin can't play it at all, and other blue decks can play it to stop the red enchantment. Dovin's Veto also counters your twin + dispel plan. Could this mean we could safely have Twin back in the format?

    That would give WOTC's R&D a lot of credit for making such a decision. I don't think they will use that rationale, because that would involve looking at the deck in the real world, and not as the mythical boogeyman people have incorrectly spent years convincing people it was. I hope they prove me wrong, but I await another soul-crushing array of disappointment at the next B&R.

    Well that was fast... Probably precludes Counterspell. I'm conflicted, but this is very likely just fine if not hardly playable. Not hitting creatures is a real issue. I'm speculating that Prohibit sees more play than the FoNz in the current meta.

    I'm on my backup prayer now; unconditional 2cmc Black creature exile.

    A lot of the cards that facilitate many of the broken creatures though (Looting, Manamorphose, Cathartic Reunion, Stirrings) get hit by this though. I think it's a big win overall. Maybe not 4x staple like FoW, but I could see running 1-3 in any heavy blue deck moving forward.

    Shoal is super narrow and requires you have specific cmc blue cards in hand. It's pretty clear this is a step up, at least when combined with creature removal.

    Well then... Fixed Force of Will?

    Doesn't hit creatures, but... Interesting.

    Counterspel, much like Stoneforge Mystic, is just a matter of principle. Neither of these cards are even all that good compared to what the format is doing and cares about.

    Prohibit is underwhelming, just as Counterspell would be underwhelming.
