Quote from wrduardoI'm just so confused by these 3 cards together...UB faeries and Naya zoo would both be good counters to jund, and then it would need less of a ban...
Does anyone wonder if they didn't want Faeries to have access to DRS and they really wanted to unban bitterblossom?
Quote from Death GaaraHow powerful do we think KotR is going to be now that DRS is out of the format?
Quote from FudgesicleBGx was good long before DRS was even printed.
Quote from JaceTheWalletShredder
Ehrmagersh, a new deck is doing well. Breakz out de banhammerz!
Quote from ShodaiFirst they came for seething song and I did not speak out because I was not a storm player. Then they came for deathrite shaman, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jund player. Then they came for Snapcaster Mage, but I did not speak out, because I was not a U player. Then they came for my deck, and there was no one left to speak out for me. But screw eggs because no one liked that deck anyway.
Quote from RamanasNot any stronger than before. What makes KotR good is utility lands, which Modern lacks in comparison to Legacy (where KotR is a cornerstone of Maverick).
Quote from HypeThat seems only half true. Knight will definitely be better because DRS isn't around to just keep it at 2/2 anymore. Also is Jund/BGx falls into Tier 2, it means there will be fewer Abrupt Decays, which will make Knight a more attractive threat as well since it'll be pretty easy to keep out of Bolt range.
Quote from bkohlmanHow do they justify banning a card like DRS, and then in the same sentence bring a card like bitterblossom back in? Apparently they've learned nothing from the past.
Quote from ScarmaskI'm amazed they didn't wait to see what impact BB and Wild Nacatl would have on the format before doing something as crazy as banning DRS.
Quote from HinotamaHe just got banned and you already want to free deathrite shaman? Really?
Quote from SteBA bunch of people should read that paragraph, think, read it again, let it sink in, then read it again, and then think if they maybe should stay away from banned list discussions if the don't have any clue at all what they are talking about.
Quote from RamanasI highly doubt Jund/BGx is going to fall to tier 2, and I'm sure that Abrupt Decay is still going to see a TON of play as one of the best removal spells in the format, if not the best.
Quote from germanturkeyjund will never be tier 2. it was always tier 1 even before RTR came out. its just more in line with everyone else and won't be 50/50 across the board any more.
Quote from awesomeandyagree. They are too good to go to tier 2, that's one reason I think the ban of drs is justified. However, I wonder what the new kind will look like? Does it pick up bitterblossim? Another super efficient spell? What do you guys think?
Quote from RamanasYou do realize that they basically replaced the current "best G one drop creature in the format" with a new "best G one drop creature in the format"?
