Quote from ed06288 »I think stoneforge is cool, and don't mind if fair decks get access to an "unfair" package.
So anyway is hogaak eating a ban in the future? Does looting or gravecrawler get banned?
Paying 4 mana over 2 turns, using a creature without any form of protection, for the payoff of a 4/4 creature with Vigilance and Lifelink that is susceptible to Path, Push, and virtually any removal that isn't Lightning Bolt, is not in any way unfair. You're saving 1 mana and getting Instant speed on an Artifact that does not win you the game instantly. A good rate? Yes. But it is painfully fair, especially when top decks have multiple 3/2 Hasty fliers recurring by as early as T2, or can literally win the game by milling you out on T3.
