No. A reprint of LotV was desirable with or without Hogaak.Quote from The Fluff »WoTC reprinted Leyline of the Void. Could this mean they want Hogaak to stay in modern?
Neoform has 1 appearance in the last two MTGO Challenge top 32s, so it is not comparable with Hogaak. It is not safe to assume that WotC is OK with a lot of graveyard.Quote from cfusionpm »They have long since shown they are OK with the level of graveyard abuse, and do not see any current decks as a problem. They will likely hand-waive off Hogaak, just like they do Neoform. Unless it takes like 4+ Top 8 slots in back to back to back GPs thanks to London Mulligan, then maybe they might pretend like they care about all the fast combos and GY abuse. They'll share some stern words, and tell us "help is on the way in upcoming sets!" Meanwhile innocuous, fair, and considerably less powerful cards continue to rot on the banned list.
Quote fromGolgari Grave-Troll—Dredge, the mechanic and the deck, has a negative impact on Modern by pushing the format too far toward a battle of sideboards. With the printing of Cathartic Reunion and Prized Amalgam, the deck once again became unhealthy for the format. While those cards were discussed, the real offender always has been the dredge mechanic itself.
