Quote from ktkenshinx »Others will never be happy until their worst matchup, likely Tron, is hit with a ban.
Quote from FoodChainGoblins »I think that's the whole point. You want to play what you want to play because you get enjoyment from it. I believe what Ross Merriam is getting at is exactly THAT. Players make an excuse to not play the best deck.
I do it. I know that I can be super successful with Humans, but it is not all that fun for me (although I did 3-1 last FNM, trying it in a tournament for the first time since I did CoCo Humans). I personally feel that Humans is a super easy deck to play and that is a "good" thing. Also I am not going to hold it against anyone who believes that it is hard to play. I know I don't play it perfectly, but I play it well enough, lol.
BTW, people still don't know how to side against Tron. Probably around 90% of the time, it's pretty easy to figure it out, but how about this? With Grishoalbrand, do I side in Blood Moon?
Enjoyment goes out the window (for me) if I am winning 80-90% of the time. During Eldrazi Winter, I won 84% of my matches. Sure, it may have not been the most enjoyable deck, but winning cards and money, while buying more cards with winnings kind of makes up for that (at least for me). If I was a millionaire, I don't know if I'd feel the same way.
Quote from Earthbound21 »It's a fallacy to think there are two categories of decks, those with many decisions trees and those without. Every deck has decisions that are impactful to the game you are playing, whether it's something as complex as proper land and cantrip sequencing or as simple as "Which card do I Thoughtseize?" (Hint: the one you can't answer).

Quote from Teixeira3 »The biggest problem when talking about Stirrings ban is that, imo, people are underestimating the damage it will do to the decks that play it.
Quote from NRWGN »Posters can be wrong, the length of time they make their argument doesn't give it merit.
Quote from NRWGN »Every time a deck top 8s, you guys cry for a ban.
