Times in top 8:
the rest are situational.
In 5 tournaments, partners won 3 times and zurgo 1 time.

You have one of each removal spell, they have two commanders. You kill one of them, the other one is fresh, you kill that one, the other comes out.
It is unsustainable to keep up with them, so either share the general tax or ban Thrassios or just remove the mechanic, which is meant for a game with 3 other people and so on. And on top you get 4 colors. It's a bit much. With these commanders, all the small things add up quickly.
You know what is funny? One person from Committee said to me that partners are so strong and always in top8 cause players are bad and play bad decks
Every top8 of the last year is a big sequence of : partners-zurgo-titania and some situational deck. Funny.
Feb 27, 2018I'm happy cause the meta atm is stable and there aren't card that need ban.Posted in: 1 vs 1 Duel Commander (French)
But PARTNERS guys. PARTNERS.
They start with 1 more card than the other deck + all the resources they got from their colours. Is not acceptable, cmon.
They make an incredible pressure keep playing generals.
Is not that difficult : the general tax should be shared between the legendary creatures with partners mechanic.
P.S.= try to mulligan vs partners with only one general and share the % of win

Why Cataclysm? It's a card that becomes much better only if you have Planeswalkers behind it, and is extremely dependent on your board state as well. If you take this away, Aggro has...Armageddon and Ravages of War (if you can get it) and neither of those replicate Cat's advanatge. Balance is actually pretty fine at the moment, there aren't any fast mana rocks to ramp into it for a blowout.
Fastbond I can see being banned again, but there just isn't enough Titania/Gitrog going on around here, at least, to make it a no-brainer.
Ancestral Vision why? You can kill them well before it resolves.
Cataclysm makes sacrifice also Planeswalkers. Armageddon and Ravages of War require a perfect situation to be good, it's really hard.
Fastbond has no sense. Titania is tier 1 since was printed and Gitrog in this meta is really good; with fastbond those decks has the opportunity to win since the first 3 turns. Cannot be possible.
Ancestral Vision in the end is fine. Since Fireblast is gone i don't know why we have still Force of will legal.

agree with you i would have ban, in add of the cards they banned:

Edgar Markov is now banned as as commander only.
Fireblast , Eidolon of the Great Revel , Sulfuric Vortex , Price of Progress are now banned.
But.. where is Fastbond ?!
I can't really think that they have not understand yet the overpower of Fastbond.
Yesterday against Titania the match was this:
1st oppo turn: land+fastbond
1st my turn: land
2nd oppo turn: pay 1 life and put on the battlefield a forest and a fetch, cast Ramunap Excavator, re-play 3 times the fetch from the gy and play Courser of Kruphix from the hand. Courser makes 0 the damage from fetch and fastbond -> 5 forest, Titania and keep play infinite times the fetch to create elementals.
Also Balance can't face this cause Titania creates elementals in that way.
You guys wanna play in a format that accepts match like this?! It's ridicolous.
I always trusted the committee but this time, keeping Fastbond legal, they are wrong.

Your 20% argument is not valid as the sample size of games with Edgar is far too small to not be skewed by large degrees variance.
We have 5 tournaments from 26/08 to 24/09 one month:
22 players: 1st Edgar
8 players : 1st Edgar
29 players: 1-2-3-4-5 Edgar
39 players: 1-2-3 Edgar
27 players: 1-2-3 Edgar
You wanna tell that in one month people did not change their list to deal with Edgar and lose anyway?! The 20% argument is extremely valid.
Quoting @Ashiok: "When you start to have to metagame to one particular deck then that means the general is too strong."
And remember this tests made from Loxmatii and Asimov (not casual players) that are ridicolous: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1u77I2vYKUWyLOf-DZHp-Zcdh6LMekn2xkRL3tHTZYAc/edit#gid=0
Sep 21, 2017Someone has seen the lists from the latest top8? :http://mtgtop8.com/event?e=16896&d=304541&f=EDHPosted in: 1 vs 1 Duel Commander (French)
I think he miss some irreplaceable cards (like Maze of Ith, fiery confluence, fire covenant etc) but i would know if there is someone that tested the 3 gideons all together to take advantage of the emblem of gideon of the trials and the enchantment ghostly prison.
I was thinking also about Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar; if you have the slots for playing both ok but if you have to choose, which would it be better?
Atm i think that Gideon is better cause creates a blocker/attacker 2/2 and can also attack by itself, it's more aggressive than elspeth and, obviously, is good with the emblem of the gideon of the trials.
I put back Armageddon. Versus monoG deck is the only sure win condition we have most of the times. What is your opinion about it?
I tested and i added this card declaration in stone: is really impressive. Exile at the cost of a clue for the oppo is great; and it's also very very good vs the Titania's elementals and the tokens from Edgar.
Rakdos charm also is in my list to have an answer vs graveyard's deck like titania and cause vs edgar is like a win condition lol (is also good vs smuggler's copter and manlands like mishra's factory, nexus).
Btw this is my current list: http://tappedout.net/mtg-deckpaste/21-09-17-xOG-deck-paste/

Edgar is not a problem because we play at 20 life. He would be a problem even in a 30 life format, because he gives the player an emblem that can't be interacted with and that generates tons of advantage. That is not an issue of life points, the card is basically perverting the idea of playing commander by giving you a free effect without ever needing to move your commander from the command zone. That's why it should be banned.
Doesn't work so simply like that. When you start to have to metagame to one particular deck (would you really play pyroclasm and propaganda if not for Edgar?) then that means the general is too strong. What's worse: it is entirely unclear that these cards actually make the matchup better for you. Just killing the vampires is not enough, you need to apply some pressure. Imagine it like a burn deck - if you kill all their threats and discard all their cards you will still die if you don't have a way to put pressure on the table. Edgar is even worse than that because even after you remove all the threats and start to hold up counterspells the 1/1s vampire will still hit the table since it is a cast trigger.Quote from Etienne »... here comes a new challenger !
Everybody finds him strong. Everybody loves him or hates him.
And curiously, nobody found a way to counter him!
In which world are we afraid of an army of 1/1s ? I don't know ! IF you play red, play pyroclasm! If you play blue, play propaganda, ... there are a lot of answers that are not dead cards against the other decks.
A great thing in Magic the Gathering, is the new extensions. We encounter new cards, add them in existing T2 decks, some T2 decks are killed, other T2 are born. Why DC would act differently ?
Darwin once said : "the ones that doesn't adapt dies".
I don't see why the format should bend over backwards to deal with a card that is clearly too unbalanced to stay on it. He and Arahbo should bite the dust, and I'm saying that as someone that actually likes aggro and plays with Arahbo.
This is exactly my thought after this new great top8: http://mtgtop8.com/event?e=16875&f=EDH
Sep 8, 2017I have not tested Arahbo yet but i saw many games and, since i play Xenagos, God of Revels in multiplayer, i can say that the most important thing is not have a big powerful creature (you have the strenght in your general's eminence), is having abilities to make damage like: trample, flying and unblockable/protection.Posted in: 1 vs 1 Duel Commander (French)

My friends and me made a big test session for Edgar. Here are our results: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1u77I2vYKUWyLOf-DZHp-Zcdh6LMekn2xkRL3tHTZYAc/edit#gid=0
to tell the truth, i was really shocked with such results. Total dominance.Of course we can start to change decks to beat Edgar, but will they be able to play vs other metagame. As for me- Edgar is too strong for current meta. Such words i can say about Zurgo. I hope that in some time i will find opportunity to make a test session of Zurgo vs all the meta
Do we really need something more than this to understand that this general needs ban?
