Quote from H3RAC71TU5 »Can you expand your thoughts on the other things white should be able to do? After red's recent makeover it seems like it's white's turn again.
Quote from Thalassoporos »
If you wanted White to be better, then wizards needs to stop ignoring its actual toolbox. Tax, stax, hatebears, land destruction, wraths, cheap removal, lifegain, anthems, weenies, plains-tutoring. Using a fraction of those just because they aren't fun to play against is exactly the reason why white is regarded as an almost non-existent color in many formats with very few decks that actually allow it to stand-up.
Also standard is terrible metric to base a card's power off of. No one really cares if white gave esper or azorious a new toy, because most people regard standard as a joko of a format and it continues to be one.
Giving white "big splashy monsters" is absolutely a borked concept based on the very fundamentals of the color pie itself and would require white to heavily break and bend the color pie to do so which would also make it as you put it "Green but *****ty".

Quote from Thalassoporos »Quote from Ritokure »White has its problems but removal is not one of them. If we give White more efficient removal, all that's going to do is make Esper or Azorius Control better and White will still be crap. What White needs is more tools to do things other than play a bunch of weenies, gain life and proceed to scoop phase as soon as an opponent draws a wrath.Man just look at all those white removal cards from GP Portland, good thing white doesn't need more.

Quote from Xcric »i don't doubt that at all, though i do hope white gets efficient removal to deal with those threats. efficiency being key. it'llmost likely be something stupid like 4W, exile target creature with a power greater than 5 or something that's just trash like that.
