    Well now I guess I am forcing PE in Modern.

    Banned because it wins seemingly out of nowhere. No other criteria mentioned.
    While other cards also meet this criteria, it seems they leaned on the fact that it requires little deckbuilding focus to be effective.

    I believe this is the first card to be banned because it wins seemingly out of nowhere since Coalition Victory. I do not know if this means other cards will start being more heavily considered for banning... but that seems like the logical conclusion.


    Certainly shocked, that’s for sure. There’s precedent now for similar cards gaining traction for potential bans. Tooth and Nail being the first card I think falls into a similar category.


    You know that tooth and Nail can be sued to tutor anything else that isn't combo right? Tell me what does Paradox Engine offers other then straight up combo? Untaping a couple of mana rocks to add more mana? Woow.

    Tough i think they could have explained more the reason why it was banned, but now people aginst the comitee will twist their words in this and used it as more ammuntion.

    I'm curious in how Painter will be used in a fair way, the card is very unique

    If you ban Looting, you kill half the format. Is totally unreasonable, and Wizards knows it.


    Don't you think that the format dies because if a card is banned, isn't problematic? Looting should be considred before it becomes a Brainstorm.

    Thats young Nicol Bolas, even before he gain his spark. The Eldest reborn descripts when he got revived during Time Spiral, he was "dead" for sometime when Tetsuo Umezawa defeated him at the high of his power as a planeswalker.

    The Ravager IS WAAAYYYYY before before the events of The Eldest reborn, during his younger days pre-spark.

    Make a list for modern printed cards
    Hmm, depends if you mean "printed since 8th" or "legal in modern". I'll assume the former. In which case, it's:

    Sliver Legion: $115.47
    Selvala, Heart of the Wilds: $40.47
    Sen Triplets: $37.94
    Sliver Hivelord: $36.27
    Rhys the Redeemed: $34.96
    Urza, Lord High Artificer: $34.74
    Sakashima the Impostor: $34.17
    Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger: $33.30
    Skithyrix, the Blight Dragon: $32.26
    Araxa, Praetor's Voice: $32.22

    *so yes, I was wrong earlier about rhys being the 2nd most expensive modern legend

    As you can see, it's a much tighter pack, especially at the bottom. Idk wtf is going on with sliver prices, though. I mean seriously.


    JESUS CHRIST!!! Why is Selvala so expensive? Wasn't aware she was this crazy played in commander(i have a Selvala deck tough)

  • posted a message on Sheldon's Thoughts on infinite combos
    Some infinite combos are so increedibly anti climatic. I don't mind havingg some, when it fits the theme of the deck like for example, my Scarab God has Gravecrawler + Rooftop Storm combo because they are thematic and usefull to my deck individually that happens to be a combo. But stuff like Tooth and Nail for Mikaeus + triskelion feels so boring and anti climatic. The abd part is when this becomes way too constant, forcing to build your deck more competitivelly, in the end slowlly losing its identity. Basically becames an arm race. Thats anoying, specially for the casual group.
    I guess the plan is make casual decks and 1 very competitive and opressive deck that makes the combo player suffer to a point he will stop doing it.

    Infinite combos have their place........only if moderate, in my opinion ofcourse. used to have combo decks, but they got so boring so i just scratched them and went for thematic and fun decks.

    My bet is on Saheeli. Izzet artifacts is really easy to break in half, even with the expanded banlist.


    She is the most broken XD. Only walker to be banned in the format funny enough

    Paradox Engine is simply boring. So easy to combo with it or just evenw asting time in the table calculating how mutch mana it generates with mana rocks. even traded mine off because when i used, it wasn't fun at all. Really boring in the end.

    Whats the point of this card other then ops i comboed? Haven't seen PE in my group for a year, because the card had no purpose other then win a game in hyper competitive way. I'm in the team of banning it because the card has no other purpose other then combo. Cards like Mikaeus, Kiki-Jiki can be played fairlly and have other strats to them other then combo wins. Paradox Engine doesn't have anything going for it other then been a combo win.

    I'm thankefull my griyp isn't been ravaged by it, but i cans ee how "pointless" the card is for majority. I won't groan if it remains unbanned, but i won't shed a tear if its gone either.

    Leylines, step aside. We got the proper reprint here.


    I won't be satisfied until Storm Crow makes a standard appearance. Only then will I lay my decks to rest.


    Only when the Reserved List is abolished that we might have a chance to see Storm Crow 's greatness again

    If Looting is that important for some decks that would DIE just by the loss of it, really shows the absurd power of that card. Its a draw 4 for 1 mana in graveyard based decks. Thats insane. I agreed that it should go aswell.
