  • posted a message on Pioneer Banned List Speculation
    Deathrite, Cruise and Dig are all fueled by fetches in the formats they're banned. They warped formats but I don't seeing them getting hit here because they are still pretty medium casting wise without the fetches and cheap cantrips that are ubiquitous in formats like legacy or even modern. I don't even see Aetherworks Marvel getting banned because of how anemic the energy mechanic is. Aside from the mechanic, the early shakings of the format are always defined by busted combo or really fast aggro and that's what kept marvel out of being big in Frontier. If anything gets banned it'll either be Saheeli/Felidar or T3/Oko. The recent planeswalkers are really strong in other formats and that is even more compounded in Pioneer. The format doesn't really have clean answers to Planeswalkers outside of AssTrophy, Decay, Downfall, Dreadbore and Bedevil. In a couple of months we will absolutely see just how much the WotS/Eld planeswalkers hit this format.

    Between Flusterstorm, FoN, and Prohibit Delver is looking pretty dang hot right now. Here's hoping for really good U cantrips in the set

    I'm hoping for Brainstorm Lite something along the lines of

    Brianstorm - U
    Draw 2 cards, then put 1 card from your hand on top of your library.

    Here's hoping, but I'm sure it probably won't happen.

    With the addition of Trophy does that mean Bob can be a staple in Abzan now? I remember the argument was that the overall CMC of the deck was too high and that was the reason why Bob was always left out. Also, do we go into the old Noble Hierarch/ Flayer Builds of old?
