I expect to only see Hogaak targeted bans next week but just maybe Hogaak was enough to make someone at RnD realize Looting has be the thorn in Modern for a very long time now.
I'm also incredibly disappointed that Magic Arena's Historic format got announced with he excitement of a wet fart without any old sets being brought in. I yearn for a new eternal format that isn't kept in a chokehold by the reserved list
I can't tell you how disappointed and sad I am that the new Historic format doesn't have Kaladesh and Amonkhet in it....... I know they basically said "sometime down the line" which sounds like 2 years or something lel..... kill me.
I am really fearing another Brawl fiasco where they toss a ruleset at the playerbase and hope it sticks without any support. Arena doesn't even have a Historic ladder... I kind of feel they don't WANT Historic to become popular so people keep dumping money into Standard rotation.
These kinds of conspiracy theories are routinely unfounded. I think you (maybe another poster but I seem to recall you participating) had similar speculations about Wizards deliberately tanking Modern in some way to help Standard. Wizards will likely continue to develop Historic and we will ultimately see more sets added and a ladder.
