    Yeah that is quite the massacre of deck options. The problem with control is you have to be able to beat so many different type of decks. If you greatly reduce the viable options you just make it easier for control.

    Is SFM going to be backed by a card that copies my equipment and gives it haste? like am I going to get a 4 CMC spell that turns one batterskull with germ token into 4 or something?

    Shades of Grey in a Gatewatch magic story? Yeah I doubt it personally I just hope my favorite characters get some good showings (hard to be worse then Dominaria Peformance) and Bolas does not go down like a Chump. We don't need another Eldrazi Titan Debacle.

    Please don't take away my Faithless Lootings. Frown

    From the GP/PT T8 perspective, Looting is actually a worse performer than SV. I wouldn't worry about it.


    How would you cripple Dredge then? I have seen Looting bring the plague of one graveyard abusing deck after another seems if you want to weaken hese deck types taking out looting is a good target.

    Interesting although I suppose only Innistrad is immediately relevant since it takes usually 5-6 years to return. Although I think Theros and New Phyrexia are far more likely returns.

    He will be on Team Bolas for Ravnica Allegiance. I hope his card is less garbage this time but considering UW already has Teferi not sure what Dovin is really bringing to the table. Maybe he will be 3 cmc.

    Dovin is next up, he was mean to Chandra so he must be "EVIL".

    But as I said I buy oppression stories more if WOTC allowed nonhumans to be Walkers more often.

    As I said before two paths either Looting and Stirrings need to be hit with a ban or blue cantrips need to get off the ban list.

    To repeat an earlier point: What was Vraska supposed to do? All she can do is allow them to be heard and integrate them into Golgari society by providing jobs and such, which we totally see in the story with Vraska holding a speech with Kraul invited and the Kraul guards at the entrance. Should she kick out all elves? Murder them? Tear the guild to the ground and make a new one? I really don't see what people were expecting.

    Edit: What I find really offputting is how selectively characters are judged on this forum. Almost everything the neowalkers do is bad bad bad and hypocritical, while oldwalkers get away with everything and it was just "for the greater good n all". Or there's a throw-away line like "oh yeah we know Urza was bad, but let's go on to the next topic". Meanwhile neowalkers never hear the end of it. I thought we hit rock bottom when people started to defend Nicol Bolas, only because we heard a story from his (very likely dishonest) point of view, but here we have people accusing Vraska of being a hypocrite for not doing something fast enough that barely any of the oldwalkers would have done ever.


    Please I always complain about Lili getting a free pass because she and Jace use to bone. Bolas didn't force her to sign a deal with Demons or slaughter her way across the multiverse as an Oldwalker and yet is Lili every going to pay for her crimes? Apparently not cause she is hot and use to date the male lead of the Neowalker Gatewatch Saga.

    As for Vraska she has had what a few months its going to be hard for her to turn that around this quickly. Vraska might feel for the Kraul but she is not an Oldwaker where she has the power to enforce her will with no issues. She has to convince her powerbase presumably the Gorgons to care while fending off a large Elf contingent.

    Granted I find it funny WOTC tells us thats bad when we cannot even get Elf or other near human Walkers on a regular basis much less something more alien and monster like ala the Kraul so they buy it to.

    Humans skates because it doesn't have obvious targets. I mean what are you going to do ban Aether Vial or Cavern of Souls?

    Whereas you look at Dredge and you see Faithless Looting which has I don't know since Hollow One been enabling one discard and graveyard abusing deck after another since JTMS and BBE escaped the ban list. And then you look at Creeping Chill which is a free uncounterable 6 point lifeswing. I still do not see how Chill got out the door as is, should have a mana cost tacked onto it. Apparently it simply means for your favorite Modern Deck to get broken cards you need a champion in Play Test.

    1) Ancient Stirrings
    2) Faithless Looting


    Those two have been the biggest abusers for ages as every new broken deck that has popped up has abused one of those two cantrips. I suppose creeping chill works as a free target if you want to bring Dredge back in line but don't want to take Faithless looting out. But Stirrings has got to go in my book or blue cantrips need to be freed up. Stirrings users have Oath of Nissa and/or Adventurous Impulse to fall back on anyway.

    Vraska said she wanted to make things better for the Gorgon. She never said anything about making things better for the Kraul.

    The hierarchy seems to be Gorgon > Elves >>>>>> Kraul or Elves > Gorgon >>>>>> Kraul
