    Then what is the point of any 'eternal' format?

    How is this better than Frontier? This is starting to get dumb.

    Significantly larger card pool, lowering the odds of 5 color goodstuff simply dominating the format. Allowing for a more diverse format, barring any need for emergency bans. Has a much higher potential ceiling.

    So Frontier is essentially this new Pioneer format announced today correct? https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/news/announcing-pioneer-format-2019-10-21?c

    From Return to Ravnica onwards with fetchlands banned is the new official format.

    Maybe conceptually the same. But Frontier was introduced with what, 10 legal sets or something like that? Compared to Pioneer being announced with 29 legal sets? I suspect the formats, comparatively, will be drastically different from each other - regardless of if fetches were legal or not.

    Buy, utterly burned out and not even 2 weeks in.

    I can only take so much Field of the Dead and Nissa, Who Shakes the World, at this point. There was enough of it before rotation and I am not very pleased to see that the format on Arena is still absolutely homogenized by these cards. I am typically not someone in favor of card bans, but it is crazy how out of control they are letting design get these days. No wonder this section of the forums is a ghost town.

    Some pretty pushed cards in the set, I am loving it! Really big fan of the mythic artifacts in UBG.
    Sadly WR seem, unfortunately lackluster for Commander.

    I did accidentally kill an opponent in one game, which is a shame because I could have used his army against the others. I goaded Opponent A, who then attacked Opponent B with his commander, Atraxa. I used Duelist's Heritage to give Atraxa double strike and then cast Berserk as a kill spell. Unfortunately, I didn't notice the two +1/+1 counters on Atraxa, and Opponent B took 24 commander damage to the face.

    I am confused, isn't that the idea? To have other players eliminate each other by using Goad tactics, so that you are the one going into heads up with another player?

    Or are you saying that you wanted to use Player B's army?

    The green stat monster we've always wanted. I'm in shock that this has zero downside. Hits planeswalkers hard, especially since most tokens that planeswalkers generate can't block this.

    Also, True-Name Nemesis dies blocking this.

    Why do True Name die?

    Protection prevents the damage that would be dealt to TNN. Questing Beast no longer allows protection to prevent the damage, thus TNN will take damage and die upon combat in which it is dealt lethal damage.

    This is a pretty powerful card, damn.

    Unfortunately, I think I am going to skip it. I enjoy that it is 2GG. But I think the 4 drops I want in a midrange green decks are just better than this card upon my 2nd or 3rd evaluation of this. Definitely an add to the Ondeck binder.

    I have always wanted Stax in my Cube to gravitate to BWR, and that is really hard given that G has so many great Stax compatible cards. More interaction for things like this + Welder is always appreciated, and I will rejoice if and when the day comes that I can push BWR more. But until then, this card is kind of a miss for me.

    As hot as the Mardu Blue list looks, I am still ever so wary of not running green for cards like Abrupt Decay and Assassin's Trophy. You have no outs to a resolved Bloodmoon. That has to feel pretty bad.

    highly considering banning the rift?

    That’s not what I said.

    You literally just said it was on the fence for being banned... implying such.

    Feel free to back up and reiterate.

    I know this was yesterday, but I absolutely love this card! What are some ideas people have?

    For anyone absolutely entrenched in the format, these products will always be disappointing... that is just how it is. These decks have never been what I hoped they would be for a $40 price tag, but they are nice to see anyways. Players deep into the format are likely just going to pick up singles anyways, this product isn't geared towards them - it is geared towards people who likely don't have a commander deck or who don't spend a whole lot of money on a secondary market.

    I love how the attempt to completely troll and de-rail this thread, has succeeded.
