Quote from Thenarus »Dark Ritual for Modern? There's zero chance of this ever happening, and for good reason. A +2 mana ritual castable on the first turn would be extremely broken, and not just for Ad Nauseam. Noooooo thanks.
Quote from DaveJacinto »Quote from ElectricEye »Dark Ritual - I can't think of a single deck that would play this card except for maybe Ad Nauseam, which isn't that strong right now anyway. I don't know about you but I don't feel like dealing with turn 1 LoTV.

Quote from Renataki »i honestly just want shardless agent.
Yeah, but it's really more "Disney Evil" than practical. It's like being a bond villain and giving a monologue rather then just shooting them.
Quote from Heskatet »I wonder why Opposition didn't show up in the new Ravnica block. Would have fit perfectly both mechanics-and storywise to this block. And it's addition to the Modern card pool would be safe in my opinion.
So i still want to have Opposition reprinted.
Quote from Thenarus »I used to be against the idea of Pernicious Deed being Modern legal despite loving the card because of the fact that it might keep fast aggro down. Really though, isn't midrange supposed to chew up aggro? Deed would be like a slightly more expensive Wrath, with the upsides of versatility and instant-speed activation. It's hard to imagine decks like Humans, Spirits, or Phoenix falling off due to GBx getting Deed. It can hit manlands, but misses planeswalkers, so all sorts of interesting and skill-testing lines could come about by having it.
Daze, Misdirection, Price of Progress, Hymn to Tourach. All of these cards are very high risk, and push all sorts of existing archetypes out of competitive viability.
