Quote from user_938036 »Extended was a failure for the exact reason why they are now committed to making a new format every 10 years. The number one thing players hate about playing magic is when their cards rotate out of the format they were playing. This is why they axed the twice a year rotation. Pioneer will be a thing for a long time just like Modern is still a thing and to a lesser extent Legacy is still a thing.
Quote from user_938036 »This is almost literally what people said when Modern came out. While you can't say Legacy is thriving it would be equally wrong to say its dead. Magic has simply become so large that it needed this new format. And it will need another one in 10 more years. It's just the nature of the beast.

Fabled Passage isn't an enabler for Deathrite Shaman. It will bring lands into play tapped early. Deathrite needs support to accelerate early. Also Fabled passage is only good in 2 color decks honestly. Things like Satyr Wayfinder will be enabling DRS abilities.

These surely need to be banned on sight
Quote from Quamobrem »Have they said anything about how many are available? Also, should magicstore.wizards.com be an actual website instead of a blank password request, or is something wrong on my end?
I honestly don't think this sounds like a bad product, if they print more than twelve of them this time.
