Quote from TheOnlyOne652089 »Playing a proven working deck is better in almost any case than failing to ponder around with your own brew, not that its not fun to brew stuff up, but the vast majority of people is not really successful throwing their own ideas into an actual working and competitive deck.
Quote from SilvosRogueElemental »And a giant kraken starting as 2/3 is wonky.
Quote from the n00b king »
Lightning Bolt and Inquisitions are huge reasons why. Also modern is significantly faster than pioneer. Most modern decks don't care about Oko. The only deck that plays it is Urza and that deck doesn't even need to.

Quote from Pappy »
Certain decks do have an easy answer but others, like ur emerge, mono white aggro, etc. Don't have the urgency to race it or have any good removal against it. This would just polarize the format.
Quote from thatmarkguy » That ... really doesn't compare to the likelihood of an on-demand revolt trigger in a fetch-loaded modern deck. Like, not even close.

Quote from Courier7 »Any thoughts on how this might interact with Underworld Breach? Is it possible to apply an alternate escape cost to a card which already has escape? If so, can you use the one which is less expensive?
Quote from Gutterstorm »I don’t think that’s necessarily the best way to describe it. If I play Athreos I can animate him by having five other exclusively white pips in play. Athreos cares about black and white. The only place it gets messy is with hybrid mana, and now this card. But as I said above, dollars to donuts, the intent of this card is to provide one devotion to every god.
