Quote from LEH »Ugh, I'm a Jund player and even I hated the DRS era, DRS was so obviously broken - I swear, when WotC was designing DRS they must have had a discussion like:
Head Designer: "what are the best 1 drops in every format?"
Rest of Designers: ... "Noble Hierarch"... "Grim Lavamancer" and... "Birds of Paradise".
Head Designer: "Great!, now lets make it have all of those abilities toned down!"
Rest of Designers: "HUH?!"
Head Designer: ... "also, lets make it easier to cast by making it Black or Green... and hate on graveyards like a slightly better first ability of Relic of Progenitus."
Anyway, I agree with you that I'd like to see more than BBE unbanned too. The way I see it that if they don't unban BBE, there is little chance of anything else coming off the list as I'd argue BBE is significantly less risk than any of other cards on the list.

A good display of "getting it" from the coverage team.
I also really liked the "Eternal Command" deck that was shown in round 2. I mean, it is a pile, but what a pile! Pulse of Murasa, Savage Knuckleblade, Surrak Dragonclaw and Thing in the Ice? Sign me up!

Quote from Ertai Planeswalker »So this is in the Ixalan spoiler right now:
Settle the Wreckage 2WW
Exile all attacking creatures target player controls. That player may search his or her library for that many basic land cards and put those on the battlefield tapped, then shuffle his or her library.
This can't possibly be happening right? MASS Path to Exile? Isn't this hideously OP? I mean, if it's real it's going straight into my O-Kagachi vengeance deck but man... Angel of the Dire Hour is usually already a blowout, yes I'll have one at over 40% discount...

Quote from Lilijuana »
Their reason for banning probe was as succinct and to the point as it gets...and correct. I don't see how tournament reports are necessary when they are addressing how the card influences gameplay.
You mentioned the Delver deck above. It runs 17 lands and essentially 56 cards b/c Probe enables such a composition to be viable when normally it would not.
