    turn 1 a 7/5 with trample seems bonkers to me. not even in legacy easy to achieve, with the 0 mana partner legend also easy in commander.

    so why is he just uncommon ?

    is a turn one 7/5 the new normal ?

    doesnt matter if it is fictional or not

    people get the impression of child soldiers, and to be fair, at first i also thought ... "okay, why is that jungle guy looking like he trains child soldiers? is this intended?"... doesnt matter what the artist ment to depict, if people get that impression, he might have done a mistake. ajani could have just played with them or teach them something in school. but they have weapons and seem to follow orders / be disciplined. and at least the 1st thing is something children should not need.

    i am pretty happy with this banning. i dont think escape into the wilds needed a bann when they do it with omnath. but i actually dont care for this card. so finally something good

    i would be more interested in on how the discussion with wizards went and how they address the concerns of their community in the future

    banning uro is not solving the problem.

    omnath decks still play crazy spells like ultimatum or ugin on turn 4.

    i am really pissed off by this decision. they just banned what the majority screamed for instead of using their brains and solving the issue. and the issue is not uro, and if it were, they could just easyly replace him with Scale the Heights that just does the same without a body. so if there is an effect for the same mana that can replace him, is it really solving the problem of standard ?

    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"


    The problem is "how do I beat deck X" is not really why people enjoy the game. Adapting your list to how the meta is developing is one thing. Totally changing archetype just to counter something because majority of decks simply don't have the tools to fight is another.

    The second is sign of unhealth meta for sure and the kind of thing that hurts the game, specially if you are starting.


    i dont think this is right.
    for example the outcry was loud for oko, but we had an answer in the same set that literally every deck could play in the form of "Sorcerous Spyglass". It was an answer that comes out the turn before oko (or if goose ramped the same turn) and would still be flexible versus other cards/decks if not needed for oko ... did u see this card in any sideboard ? no
    i know it is not the super perfect permanently answer it answer people wish for, but what i want to point out is, that it is not like we r not given options to deal with these cards. and in case of oko there were actually plenty. i am just pointed out one option any deck could have played

    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"

    i honestly dont think uro should be banned. it is a strong card, ofc, but it is not hostage taking as oko was for example. and there are answers, people just seem to lost the ability to play them in sideboards and just complain.
    i dont play arena, but maybe its the best of one modus thats causing all this ? that should not be the benchmark for standard

    i personally dont care much about HP and I absolutly dont care if it will be like godzilla or not.

    i just hope this set just wont be a bunch of wizards and their pet owls. i would like if the schools are just based on the 1 color and that they have different creature types like:

    blue = wizards
    green = druids
    red = shamans
    white = clerics
    black = warlocks

    if they can do that, i accept the 5 school thing. you can distinguish them by the creature type and therefor also by what kind of spells they use.

    you dont need a reserved list to get high priced cards

    look at the foil japanese alternate art Liliana Dreadhorde General.

    Worth thousands... now tell me how many people will go to the LGS and buy it there ?
