    Clue #3 seems interesting. What kind of drawback could balance a Worst Fears for all opponents and in a permanent's Continuous effect? My first thought would be something like Underworld Breach, aka. a permanent with a spell-like effect that sacs itself after a while, but maybe it's something super narrow, like "You control your opponents while X is being targeted by a spell" or something.

    A product can sell well and still damage the game.

    It can be an auto-lose if someone is using Phage. Wink

    I like this you can prevent people from storming and you can turn on a no life gain button


    Nope. The Storm trigger places copies of the spell on the stack - they are NOT cast.

    I knew that I'd be painted as some curmugdeon who tries to take other's fun away for this. However, that's not actually the case. I just don't want Magic to become the TCG equivalent of Super Smash Brothers. Of course I won't police people on this - if it gets too much, I'll just quietly leave.


    This is mostly how I feel. As long as it doesn't encroach on the storyline and stays within the realm of casual whimsical fun stuff, it's all good by me. Thankfully these products seem to have been limited to a mostly casual crowd and haven't invaded Magic as an actual game to any meaningful degree.

    There is no slippery slope fear here. There is only the lack of confidence that Wizards can balance cards such that they don't accidentally print a card far stronger than intended and a lack of confidence in their willingness to reprint indemand cards at a reasonable pace. Both of which are supported by history.


    Honestly so much this. I could care less if they want to print a bunch of flashy limited crossover cards, so long as they aren't overbudgeted and cause massive demand spikes in eternal formats. I don't like that these are legal in Legacy, however as long as they're kept to a power level of the caliber we have seen, their legality in the format won't be relevant.

    However, as the quoted post states, I have some concern due to the fact we are talking about the same company that has recently printed Uro, Oko, Wrenn and Six, et al.

    Of all the Secret Lairs, I feel the only somewhat interesting one to me has been the Ooze one, and mostly for the flavor text on Voidslime.

    Value or not, I could care less for this one personally. They seem to be making these often, however; maybe one will appeal to me after enough iterations.

    So...can these flip either way? The way the transform icon is handled seems to imply that.

    If so, that's pretty cool.

    EDIT: Just realized there was an article explaining how they work.

    This is how a ban list should be used. Not just as an emergency fix for obviously broken formats but as a healthy booster for when formats stagnate or as basic quality of play improvements.


    Just because you personally fail to appreciate "broken" formats that try to recapitulate on important aspects of Magic history does not mean bans should not potentially address the health of said formats.

    I can be brutally subjective too: 75% of the formats impacted are useless fodder and will be soon go the way of extended. See what I did there?

    This set is so KEKW.

    But Wizards doesn't pay attention to the secondary market.

    They have no clue about Pioneer, none.


    Wizards haphazardly creating a nonsense format for no reason other to drive sales with no idea how to balance it?

    Nooooooo waaayyyyy

    Whatever gives me the return of Phyrexia as the main source of villains will be good with me.

    Still utterly fails to explain why it wasn't in Modern Horizons like tons of people were asking for but ok.
