Quote from WarMachinePrime »Top cards in the format. Total Golgari-fest.
I would ban the top 3 and then Oko as well. Players hate LD and Thoughtseize on the play turn one ripping out a critical piece is "feel bad" as it gets. Duress and Despise would be there to fill the gap. OuaT smoothes out the strategies for G way too much and is "free" to boot. Copter will warp the meta and eat up SB slots in non tier decks so they can't battle the aggro decks as well.
I am for a heavy hand in this format. Its not "solved" yet but it is getting close already just a month or so into it. Decks are just turning into piles of good stuff, basically a Modern Light. Prices for Tier decks are soaring as well as everyone has to play the same cards to compete. It is what it is but I feel it needs aggressive bannings to keep it fresh.
Top 7 decks as of this time are all $450 USD in paper and up. The usual pay to play.
Quote from Morphling »Well, Giant Spider isn't in the set. If I'm not mistaken, it is the only card that has been every single Core Set ever since Alpha. It was in M19. It's not in M20. I suppose that is equal parts epic and sad.
