Quote from soramaro »Yeeeah, I get that self-defense is important and it would be one thing if it was Ajani showing a cub how to fight with a stick, but that AW definitely gives off some uncomfortable vibes, with the soldier-like pose and all.
Love the non-Phyrexian Consecrated Sphinx though.
Quote from Max Rebo »Yeah "The Thran". Kind of really important to the origin of Magic. An uncommon does not do her justice.
Side Note: If MtG made a expansion called "The Thran", it could be one of the coolest powerful flavorful sets of all time. So they won't

They break immersion dramatically. Gonna be real cool to attack your jace with jeffrey dean morgan... what next? Shrek? The monopoly guy? Garfield? Its an erosion of brand.While I agree with basically everything you said it's always dissapointing when someone makes a coherent argument but ignores that part of their doomsaying is already possible. Richard Garfield, Ph.D.
It isn't an apocalyptic future in which we can attack the opponent with Garfield. It is a long standing present in which we can attack people with Garfield

Quote from user-11102155 »tbh i never had a problem with oko, and less do i have a problem with uro.
same is true for jund sacrifice.
i dont know if the reason is, that i am a midrange player, but usually i do not have any problem with the standard format. i dont think there is anything that needs to be banned atm. and if they will argue with diversity i will say, that if they ban on release standard never had a chance to develop any diversity.
maybe i am alone with the oppinion, but i think people complain to easy instead of thinking about solutions how to play vs hard decks. to me this is kind of the thrill that comes with magic... "how do i beat this deck"
