Quote from Mimeofacture »If it were me, I would have actually started TWO years earlier with Scars of Mirrodin, just for the cutesiness of like, being able to tell people about it: "You know how Modern starts with Mirrodin? Well, Pioneer starts with SCARS of Mirrodin." Idk i feel like it would make it easier for people to wrap their heads around, plus we'd get the Titans from M12! And if they brought Historic back to Kaladesh from the Beta, then all three non-rotating formats would start with an artifact set, if people wanted to conceptualize it that way.
Idk, I just think that, since Modern's start date is so well-established, the other non-rotating formats that start from somewhere should be able to relate back to that same kind of starting point in some way, just so people can think like, "Oh well this one starts from this artifact block (Modern-Mirrodin), this one starts from the next artifact block (Pioneer-Scars), and this one starts from the most recent artifact block (Historic-Kaladesh)" rather than, like. if you ask a player to remember all this stuff, MRD/RTR/XLN feels a lot more arbitrary

Quote from AmicDeep »historically i would agree about dropping rancor, for a long time it has been only a 2 of, but with the meta shift to fair creatures (most of which tend to be fairly small) rancor is becoming more important as evasion and between narnam, hexdrinker, and now syr faren and Yorvo i do think that 3 might not be such a bad direction. although is dose depend on how big burn ends up being
i also agree that syr faren is a 2 of, as he is legendary but also opponents need to remove him if he hits which may make him a 3 of in future depending on meta, as a not unreasonable curve with him in had can be
turn 1 a one drop,
turn 2 syr
turn 3 savage swipe on syr (with protection held up) and the add a rancor to and attack for huge amounts of damage (12 after removing a blocker with mana left for protection and if that protection is defence and you use in response to a push at at beginning of combat with the pump on the stack, its potencaly 16 damage swing which is normally ggs in modern if you on the play.
