    "This random one occurrence in a game filled with variance means the format is fine!"

    Ok.

    Basically what it comes down to is why are your experiences valid, and mine are not?

    Again, if you don't want to hear it, ignore me instead of needlessly provoking me.

    I enjoy Modern very much; I think it's full of interesting, interactive decisions, which a skilled player can take advantage of.

    I would love to live in this fictional world!

    We got your opinion. Stop pestering the topic with the same thing repeated until exhaustion. It’s toxic.
    Feel free to use that ignore button. Smileup

    That's great that you can enjoy dying on turn 2 and have your experiences filled with non-interactive decals that all attack on different axes and require specific narrow answers in your opening hand. More power to you.

    Complaining 5 times at day makes you feel better?

    Do personal attacks make you feel better? Unibrow

    At least I stick to complaining about all the stupid ***** happening in the format that leads to awful play experiences and terrible gameplay.

    Saw this on Twitter with the captain "my 8/8 is better than your 8/8"

    I can't wait for the London Mulligan to be accompanied by "no changes"!

    Such as relaxing by a pool and enjoying summer.

    Besides Commander, I've been getting heavy into D&D (ironically another, better managed WOTC product). I'm a player character in two different campaigns, and have been DMing Tomb of Annihilation since last October. Dance

    Helps take the sting out of how *****ty Modern has been.

    also, wth do you guys/girls have going with SFM? why the obsession with this friggin' creature? it's only a win package. there's things way less deserving of being on the list, like jitte.

    I will be fully transparent and say that there are two reasons.

    1) The principle of what is, by comparison, an extremely fair and low powered card sitting on the banned list, while BS nonsense has been allowed to run free. Stoneforge is not good. And outside of hype and volume, would likely see no success at top tables. She was banned for the sins of another format and has never been Modern legal. It's a joke that she remains banned.

    2) I have 3 playsets of her and want to sell them for big profits.

    Its the same as my issue really with all the GY hate. There are SO MANY decks that could leverage the yard, but if you are not doing that PLUS 1 or 2 other busted things, you dont get to hang with the big kids table.

    That was actually the nail in the coffin why I stopped Grixis Shadow. If someone RIP/Leylines me, if I mill/lose any of my 7 mana producing lands, half of my win cons (Gurmag) are literally uncastable. LOL. God forbid I just wanna play some Delve threats, K Command, and Snapcasters. These 7-9 GY hate pieces in the 75 tell me that if I'm using the GY, it needs to be absurdly busted to justify it. Or it needs to be in colors that can deal with resolved enchantments.

    Decks like Phoenix/Urza/hoggak can progress multiple game plans at once while seeing a high volume of cards. Even if you path 1-2 Phoenix you're still fighting the yard/thing/and aria of flame. Even if you hit hoggak with yard hate you're still slogging trough 8-20 power on board accross multiple bodies by t2 sometimes. Even if you have spot removal for Urza you still need to have artifact removal for the sword combo/prison elements of the deck.

    I find it interesting that many people used this exact description of a multi-layered approach as justification for bans in the past. It's just as silly now as it was then, but no less infuriating to see these decks praised for "diversity" while the last decks that had multi-layered approaches are all banned, and celebrated as banned for that reason.

    nice, the deck even has infinite combo. Should be a deck to watch out for, espescially when Hogaak finally eats a ban.
    and glad to see that the iconic character Urza has found a home for his card in Modern,

    When I first saw Urza, I was sure it was just a Commander card. A local player who was on KCI, Lantern, and pretty much whatever current artifact iteration is best, has picked it up. Wow how wrong I was. In addition to just being good, it looks like another badge to sew onto the sash of horrid decks I hate playing against. bunny

    Little Teferi is terrible in Modern, terrible in Standard, will be terrible in Historic, and is likely the worst design mistake in years.

    After sitting on piles of Flooded Strand and Polluted Delta that have done nothing for 5 years, I have long since changed my "spec" criteria. I basically never buy into anything unless I expect to play it and want to avoid having to pay the "hype tax" later on.

    Remember that WOTC may see us as players, Hasbro sees us as customers. And at the end of the day Hasbro wins.

    Some hype around Esper Mentor with Unearth, and as a Sideboard plan in UW Control. It was always a card waiting for a shell, and if it actually takes off in Modern, its going to jump even harder.

    I picked up a playset as soon as Force of Negation was spoiled. Glad I did, even if it has only been mediocre for me personally. Only time it shined was out of sideboard of Jeskai Phoenix. I could see it in UW though.


    Yeah, the lack of free counters is always what held it back. I've had a playset for ages just waiting.
    Ironically, I had a playset back when it was in Standard and I was playing Jeskai Ascendancy Tokens with Hordeling Outburst, Dragon Fodder, Raise the Alarm, and Stoke the Flames. Was awesome until everyone started running main deck Dromoka's Command. Sold them off long ago for... about what I paid to get em back. No harm no foul!
