If you’re comparing this new Force to Force in Legacy, it’s worth pointing out that the vast majority of Legacy players will suggest running 20-24 blue cards to support Force, and even the most “greedy” proponents will suggest running a bare minimum of 16.Quote from Melkor »I like the single Blast Zone, it has done work for me
As for Force of Vigor, I am interested. one of our green cards is a big ask, but it's not for the games where one of them is what we need. it's for the games like the Affinity match i lost tonight, where we stumble even a little bit and they have too much going and our only chance is to blow a big hole in what they are doing and we don't have the resources for the other options. I beat a prison deck in a very long and challenging match tonight, if I had been able to blow up two artifacts with one card and just give up a copy of Scrying after I was already flooded, that would have been really nice instead of using Karn activations. this is not for when we have other outs. Legacy players don't use FoW proper when Negate will get the job done, this is for the games where we expect that we will have two solid targets, because if there are two things on the field in Modern that you wouldn't feel like it was a waste to Claim, you're in a rough spot.
By comparison, we run 8. While I agree that the logic of “We don’t want to pitch our green cards” is somewhat flawed, our odds of having a green card to pitch is really small.
