    oh i have however i dont see an answer to the -x/-x part. the reason languish is unused in modern is due to damnation being better, however the ability to cast a second card for free pushes this card way pasted languish and black sun. as for damnation this seems to be a perfect budget replacement or in some decks better than damnation. Selfless spirit and preventive spells are a main using in my tech to protect against wipes. though there is nothing to my knowledge that stops -x/-x effects. so a full play set of lead the stampede is all i got? as for it being not as good to against infect and the such, i'd counter with board wipes are not meant for those strategist and if it is a decks only opinion then it was doomed to lose to that type of aggro anyway. Eldrazi and decks with larger creatures always strikes me as spot removal over wipes. I say that "im willing to shelves the elves" simply because they have been bullied into a tier 2.5 - 3 deck and it seems that more hate is building rather than cards to push it into a solid meta game choice. I love what coco did for elves but it would seem in the coming meta they would do better elsewhere. If the general conclusion is that its not a big deal then it'll put my mind to rest. If it does put the final nail to modern elves, i'll always have legacy.

    So I love playing elves, and I've read this forum a lot. So I would like others opinion on "Yahenni's Expertise", the aether revolt black board wipe. Does the print of this card shut down elves from ever getting off the ground? This new card looks to be the best 4 mana board wipe that will be available to everyone.... how does elves live though this? Right now I'm looking to hanging up my elves if Yahenni's Expertise becomes a common modern meta.

    Alright I have to ask why worm harvest hasn't been talked about for another card that cares about lands in the yard. I understand that this is a SB card but its nice that it can take advantage of all the lands that kotr put in the yard. It also feel like a better card than lingering souls for the junk/jund match up. I personally like the combo but I never like the eggs in one basket decks so I'm looking for more value from cards especially when I'm going to put so many lands in the yard.
