    The game has always had the paper/rock/scissors aspect to it.

    Except "Scissors" is considerably better than everything else. But we tell ourselves it's "good" and "diverse" because there are 7 different kinds of scissors.

    Paul Cheon and Melissa De Tora speak about how everything is totally fine in Modern at the moment.

    If that's truly the view of WOTC, I might as well sell my cards now. That's extremely disappointing. But then again, these are the same group of people who claim UW is the 2nd best deck in Modern, and Jeskai is 3rd...

    I feel like "it will be better soon" is something I've been saying for several years. So I'm skeptical that anything meaningful can be done at this point, without nuking the format and starting over. Maybe Horizon will do that? /shrug

    After tonight, I have a hard time not switching my response to #5. What a miserable experience, again. Horizon can't come soon enough.

    No changes seems great. Modern is in a great place, and its about to be shaken up with MH1.

    2/3s agree.

    Called it to a T. No changes and not a single word about Modern.

    I would be fine with stoneforge mystic getting the unban even if they have to give it the golgari grave-troll treatment later

    Not to go too much off topic, but this assumes they print equipment better than Batterskull and the Swords, which is incredibly unlikely, if not outright impossible given their thoughts and feelings about their past mistakes. Because GGT wasn't a problem until two GREAT new enablers and one AMAZING payoff card was printed and busted the deck to shreds. GGT was legal for more than a year before being relevant with these new cards. These two situations are nothing alike.

    I really just want to sit down to play magic every week, and know there 75% of my matches are going to be interesting games, full of decisions, potential back and forth, and just generally stimulating games.

    ...

    I just want to play interesting games.


    That's all I want too. But it's not something you can get from the vast majority of top decks in the format today. Frown

    Sneaky SFM unban with new cycle of Swords in MH1. Breaks no rules or spoiler claims, gives us a ton of swords to tinker with our new unban.

    ... Or no change. Whatever.
    Why would they unban a card that they consider "risky" AND print extra toys with said risky cards? Doesn't really make sense as a logic.
    Because it's not risky whatsoever to anyone remotely familiar with the format? And anyone who believes she poses any threat to Modern is woefully misguided?

    Her placement on the banned list has exactly zero to do with her power level in the current state of affairs.

    We are absolutely and most certainly seeing "No Changes" at the next B&R. I'd hazard a guess that we won't even get a text update. Just: No chanhes. Next announcement such and such date.

    Splinter Twin was a payoff card and win condition. Exarch/Pestermite were the enablers.

    imo there is something other than pure demand that has kept up tarn prices.


    perhaps it's also partly because of price memory during the twin era?

    from what I remember, tarn is the fetchland who blew up in price the most. I remember when twin was legal, someone was already offering to buy 2 from me at 80 dollars each.

    I don't know about that, they took a considerable drop both after the ban and the reprint. It's a combination of super high demand across multiple formats (especially now, thanks to UR Phoenix), while only ever being printed in an old set and a Masters set.

    That being said, they were available all day for $40-50 on eBay shortly after the MM17 reprint. The drops were so hard, that I was able to pick up foil MM17 tarns for less than regular tarns are going for now!

    In addition, oftentimes certain people (mostly from people who vocally dislike modern for the past few years), claims have been made that modern is just not enjoyable. Popularity numbers in general indicate to the opposite, as well as event attendance.

    Popularity does not mean enjoy, as shown by the number of people selecting Option #4. There are likely many players who are so heavily invested that the choices between selling out the cards or begrudgingly continue to play, lean towards continuing to play. They have spent so much time/effort/money on the format that walking away would feel like a monumental waste.
