Quote from FoodChainGoblins »I don't actually think that Censor is that good. I tend to agree with SuperHans99, except that I think that Force Spike would be playable.

Quote from Polymorph »I'm a Modern-Player for 'bout 3 years now.
I attended PTQ's, PPTQ's, FNM's and Local gamestore Tournaments.
When i started, teh Format was quite assesable.
Yes, there has always been a bunch of niche-decks, but there has been Pillars and after that a big pool of Tier 2-3 decks.
This circumstance made the format sonehow predictable.
I knew i had to pack Twin, Jund and Delver-Hate like every time.
Nowadays i really lost my mind about Sideboarding. It became ridiculous crazy - so many decks, so many choices, so many cards to hate on specific Matchups.
I really appreciate our newcomers in Eldrazi and Dredge.
But these are not the only ones that pop up here and there - there's a crap ton of old archetypes that creeps out of there holes, making Sideboarding a horror. It becomes even more frustrating once i recognize that i got no Maindeck-Cards against some Tier'ish-3 Decks.
Wereas these are all personal complains of mine, one thing is really embarrassing:
There are 0 viable All-in Combo Decks right now.
Spell-based Combo is like completely dead archetype, only exception right now are Titan Scapeshift and Griselbrand-Combo, which pops ups randomly.
I'm no more a competitive player right now (because Job, girl friend and other hobbies took over my free time) and it's hard to keep up with the format's wide-spread decks, strategies and secret-sideboard techs. Pillars are nowhere to be found.
