Quote from KoopaEverybody who is upset about the DRS ban is not upset because they think the Jund is unplayable. The GBx Midrange decks will still be very good. The people who are upset, myself included, is because this ban sets the bar low on what a card needs to do to get banned. What happens in 6 months when Birthing Pod is putting up results similar to BGx? Will they ban Pod? Because by banning Deathrite they are saying that they will. They are saying that they are willing to ban cards on the precedent that the card is simply VERY GOOD. And when the do Ban Pod, they WILL have killed an archetype. Same goes for Splinter Twin.
Is that the kind of format you want? A format where the best deck is attacked for simply being good?
They already set that precedent by banning Bloodbraid.
