Quote from Lord Seth »The inclusion of the Swords makes me wonder if we may see the printing of a "fixed" Stoneforge Mystic that will work with the Swords but not Batterskull (e.g. a Stoneforge Mystic that only works with equipment that costs 3 or less).
Quote from Spsiegel1987 »I'm really not understanding the bitching about counter spell.
Quote from Spsiegel1987 »Sweet art work but it looks underwhelming.
I'm not sure I love the idea of SFM being unbanned anymore...I think UW midrange/control would see a major restructure but I don't love the risk. I'm beginning to agree---what is she benefitting in modern right now? DnT? It's certainly not UW decks. Abzan...has some serious fundamental issues that is outdated in modern now. Abzan would still be a very bad deck.

Quote from cfusionpm »Quote from Arkmer »I also don't think Logic Knot is the same 99% of the time, but that could be a whole new thread.
I spent 6 months casting Knot in UW (and find it unplayable in just about every other blue shell for various other reasons). It was Counterspell most of the time. But it's mediocrity wasn't due to not being able to pay enough for X. Rather, the largest factors for its mediocrity were on-cast triggers, activated/triggered abilities, Cavern of Souls, and Aether Vial. Counterspell just ain't what it used to be. They're much more effective when trying to protect what you're doing than trying to stop what they're doing. Battlecruiser at its finest.
