Quote from cfusionpm »"Modern is in a pretty good spot" and "Cards could and should come off the banned list" are not mutually exclusive, nor dependent on each other. One being true should have no impact on the other. People thought the format was going to come to an end with Jace, The Mind Sculptor unbanned, and it pretty much did nothing until paired with exactly Teferi, Field of Ruin, Opt, and Terminus, and is STILL not anywhere close to dominant.
Perhaps many of the fears and risks are being assessed by people who are incredibly terrible at evaluating cards and decks...

I will not be replying to rebuttals that are not at least as fleshed out as my assertion. If you're grown up enough to use the internet, you are grown up enough to understand that posturing, nit picking, and corner cases are not enough to constitute a rebuttal to an argument. You will attack my argument in full or you will not be getting a response from me.
Quote from BlueTronFTW »It is an uncounterable drain 3. I don't know if it makes dredge an absolute terror, but I think it gives the deck reach against control and lifegain against burn and other linear decks that are a bit faster.
On another note, I look at the top decks in modern and most have interaction. Burn, grixis shadow, UW control, mardu pyromancer, hollow one. There is plenty of mixtures of removal, counterspells and discard. I mean yeah, humans is more linear but its also disruptive and synergistic. I think this is the best modern format that has existed in my entire time playing for about four years. It is not some linear hellscape of solitaire matchups.
Quote from pierrebai »So, first page complained about no unban, page two portraying that people claimed Jace would end modern. Just need a twin post and the state of modern thread will have gone back to is steady-state.
Quote from AUTUMNTWILIGHT »Burn seems high is it inflated by being the cheapest Top Tier Modern Deck?
Quote from izzetmage »
With the benefit of hindsight, SFM is not coming off while UW is a tier 1 deck. It's like, here is a deck whose strength lies in the lategame, now let's give it a tool to make its early-game better, so it can be good at all stages of the game, also keep in mind this deck is already tier 1 now...I just don't see the sense in that.
Quote from idSurge »Even if they unban nothing, I simply want to know why. An overview like izzetmage provides above is all I am asking for, though adding some numbers, historical context, something, would be appreciated.
Either way, not worth talking about as clearly Wizards cant be bothered and we dont get a modern event until October 20th...huge 'zzzzzzzzzzzzz'.
Quote from Tvtyrant »Considering the massive hatred burn and tron see in the fanbase despite not being oppressive or even dominant, I think that is a fair assessment.
Quote from cfusionpm »UW is doing well because it runs 4x Terminus. You think a 4 Terminus deck is going to cut 6-7 slots for a creature? Never mind a laughably weak one in today's meta?
Quote from idSurge »wut?
Cut 2 Teferi for 1 Creature and an Equipment?
Quote from gkourou »We just saw a lot of Dredge decks in the latest challenge trying out the new Creeping Chill card.
Do you think the card has any legs in that deck or not? Has anyone played with the card? I am skeptical.
