Quote from WenSonfrom my point of view DRS didnt need to be banned
jund is a deck, everyone playn modern, has on its radar, so they all have cards against this deck
in so many matchups DRS doesnt do that much, cause it gets handled pretty quick
and if he doesnt get handled, he does his job, be it acceleration / dmg / life... but from my experience its not soo bad, that it needed to be banned. i mean each card has its purpose and DRS aint some broken 2 card combo that wins the game turn 3 or 4. i was at GP prague, and allthough jund was the most played deck on this weekend, it didnt win. and to be honest, i cant remember when the last time jund was winning a GP.
people say, he does 4-8 dmg per game. actualy i think the average dmg per game is 4 (since it doesnt allways do that) its pretty much the same with wild nacatl...2 swings for 3 dmg is also alot for a 1 mana creature.
i am fine with the nacatl unban, since i never had problems playn vs zoo decks. the real unban, that i think shouldnt have been done, was bitterblossom. it generates so much advantage, that it is a joke, to ban DRS but unban this. i think this card is much more powerfull. and allthough it has a drawback, it is a way to strong card.
maybe we should think about ristrictions instead of bannings in modern.
Quote from The only jpSo, the meta seems to have shifted. Combo is big, especially show and tell, with storm very big in Europe (where I am from). The big fair decks at the moment seem to be RUG, and Death and Taxes, which is a really bad MU for us.
Can we evolve from this, and is the Shardless Agent package still viable? or are we fine, or dead completely? Thoughts?
Quote from TheTubanatorI played Elves at SCG Seattle, and I have to say that between in person matches and online testing I'm something like 14-1 against Shardless BUG. I'd be happy to test with you on Cockatrice, but at least from this side, Elves seems fairly unwinnable.
PM me and we'll find some times.
Quote from RobTSo what do you guys think about Toxic Deluge? Seems right up our alley. We get a versatile Wrath and we can just regain life off a new Deathrite Shaman. Low on the curve and color requirements, to boot.
Quote from Sir BillCongratulations! Did you take away any other opinions on the deck and what was your loss to? I'll be rocking my same list in Milwaukee today, so hopefully I can make something happen for shardless.
Quote from TormodForce of will is a commonly used card because its the best counter spell.
Just like how Lightning bolt is the best direct damage spell
Just like how Swords to plowshares is the best removal
Just like how Tarmogoyf is the best beater
Because they are the most cost efficient of their counterparts.
