I absolutely don't follow that reasoning. Golos is the essence of 5 color goodstuff and pretty much the opposite of a build-around commander.Quote from Card Slinger J »Quote from[...] many people have spent their hard earned money and time to build decks around this card. Being the most important card in decks that use it as a commander, it is unfair to ban it. In some cases, the banning of this card may even result in making a deck virtually useless. [...]
Sure, it's probably not viable to simply make a 1:1 swap to Jodah or a similar replacement, since you now have to actually run some amount of ramp/color fixing in the deck, but that should be solvable and imo brings back an essential part of deckbuilding that was just circumvented by simply tacking it onto your value engine...
Or, if it's not even complicated or much work, the cEDH people could just create that second list themselves instead of complaining forever?Quote from TheOnlyOne652089 »The existence of an "official" banned list for the format is what produces this issue of having only 1 list.
If they realized that, they could certainly have 2 lists, with both directions in mind and thats not even complicated or much work, its just that you have to do it, or you dont and people will rightfully forever critique that problem.
Why would it be on the RC to create a second banlist for the people that play their decidedly casual format in an unintended way? Don't get me wrong, everyone absolutely can and should play the game the way they like, but if that warps a format so much that the original rules and restrictions don't fit it anymore, that's on you.
