Quote from zemanjaskiIt does seem pretty insane, not hard at all to mill yourself for 10.
MBC is definitely now a thing, black got some great cards.
Quote from Acardus... It's a build but not really a threat to me.
Quote from bone_docActually, it might have more to do with the fact that they don't want to shell out $200 for mana bases in modern.
Quote from TheLatvianRummaging Goblin 2R
Creature – Goblin Rogue (C)
Tap, Discard a card: Draw a card.
Arghh, just give Red regular looting!
Quote from TheLizardThis kind of looting is fine. It's only the mana cost that isn't. If blue can have Merfolk Looter, red should have Rummaging Goblin for 1R, since it's (almost) strictly worse.
Quote from Aradon TemplarIt is strictly worse, which I can't fathom. They clearly want this sort of looting in red's color pie, but are unwilling to give it to them at reasonable costs. It's like claiming 'good creatures' are part of blue's color pie, when they get good creatures, but at much poorer costs.
Quote from TheLizardTwinstrike likes it better.
As for "good creatures" not being part of blue's color pie, I don't understand why they keep saying that, and then printing Phantasmal Bear and Delver of Secrets.
Quote from luminum canThe reasoning is that the ability to loot is more powerful in mono-red than in mono-blue, so mono-red's looting costs more and is less effective than mono-blue's, because mono-red gets more mileage out of it.
I guess Farseek pretty much seals the deal with the Shockduals
Quote from jturphyThis is just so patently false. You should do your research into the format before saying stuff like that. Shocks never cost more than $150 to put into a deck, and that is on the very high end of one particular deck, and even then only if you pay for NM from SCG. You can get all the shocks you need for most Modern decks for under $100.
I do want them reprinted, but it has nothing to do with Modern.
Quote from Aradon TemplarI just want red to receive less extreme cards. Most of their cards fall into three categories: good for handling early game (aggressive but small creatures or damage-based removal), pathetic middling cards like Hill Giants and Geyser Glider, or explosive cards with dramatic effects at unplayable costs. You only use red if you want to shore up your early game, because almost everything else it gets tends to suck :\
Quote from Mister MetYou might want to add Jace's Phantasm to that list. Seriously, how do they keep giving blue these insane creatures that I'm sure weren't properly tested while at the same time limiting red's spells and creatures because 'they don't feel red'?!
Quote from chili01I'm I wrong to assume that rampant growth won't be printed because of Farseek?
I probably am
Quote from RGPRICEaggressive blue decks dominating the format? let's print a 1-cost 1/1 flier that becomes a 5/5 flier after a little work, makes sense.
