Quote from idSurge »In the end we both know, 1000s of $ and 3 years later, that it doesn't matter. You'll still have to play against decks that don't care what you are doing, and force you to warp to them, instead of playing with/against you.
Quote from BloodyRabbit_01 »By the way, that’s another reason why Force of Negation is a mainstay, and not running it in the maindeck is digging your own grave.

Quote from FoodChainGoblins »Quote from Simto »That Urza deck looks so sick!
Yep, it looks like Urza, Lord High Artificer is starting to go up a bit after SCG Brian Coval's deck tech and Justin Porches (a player local to me) top 8ing the Dallas Magic Fest.

Quote from Pistallion »I'd rather not have Jitte, straight up skews many matchups.
Quote from LeoTzu »I don't disagree with you on that one. But is having to run grave-hate inherently wrong, or just a natural progression of the format? Why or why not?
I've just seen some people use the prevalence of grave-hate in decks as a sign that the format is unhealthy. But I often wonder if that's only because the format went for a long time with the graveyard as primarily as food for Tarmogoyf or potential targets for Snapcaster, as you mentioned a few pages back. Should we cling to the past, or just move forward and accept that interacting with the graveyard is just something you need to pack (akin to the Force of Will/Brainstorm package in Legacy fair decks)?
Quote from tronix »Quote from cfusionpm »Here's hoping they make it right on 7/8. But my hopes are not high.well if Albegas is correct with the subsequent b&r announcement only being a month afterwards its all the more reason not to expect any changes. as i mentioned in a previous post, for non-rotating formats 2 months is barely anything. i dislike the deck as much as anyone else since it sort of encompasses the worst aspects of modern by hitting basically every point of criticism over the years; also to be blunt id rather the deck go away even if it isn't 'too good' in whatever sense. however i can acknowledge that its just my opinion, and wizards might give it the appropriate benefit of the doubt until results provide confirmation.
being that close together if we DO see action taken on 7/8 id attribute it to one thing and one thing only: the mythic championship.

Quote from LeoTzu »I'm curious to see the reasoning on why we should have such opposition to having to run gravehate.
