WOTC things an abundance of high variance graveyard abuse is healthy. I guess it's time to sell out of the format? I have heard many people compare the past few months to how awful the GGT/Probe meta was, and I agree with them. I'm curious how many at WOTC actually play competitive Modern, instead of simply look at excel spreadsheets of deck labels and card names.
Well, based on the announcement itself, it seems like they were focused on the MC results to assess Modern's health:
We were happy with the outcome of the Modern portion of Mythic Championship II
Which seems super loose after some months of Phoenix dominance (at least in metagame share).
We already know that we shouldn't make conclusions from a small sample size and that
I agree that no changes is probably the best outcome for Modern right now but I didn't like that they used the MC as an indicator of how Modern fares to be honest.
