Quote from sss123For those of you who do not understand why people disagree with the DRS banning, please read these two posts first:
Basically what I want to say has been addressed by these two people: Koopa, and eflin
This is such a non-sense banning decision on DRS, because of the following reason stated by WOTC:
"Deathrite Shaman, however, is powerful at all stages of the game. Having a strong attrition-based deck as a large portion of the metagame makes it difficult for decks that are based on synergies between cards instead of individually powerful cards. We believe that removing Deathrite Shaman from the format will leave more room for future innovation. "
Non of the previous banning decision is based on the power of the staple card itself. They all belong to certain categories: such of breaking the turn-4 rule, make a big contribution on the dominant deck in the META (reduce the deck diversity), time-consuming issue.
DRS does not fit into any of those categories, but banned due to the stupid reason : "leave more room for future innovation"?
There is no logic behind...
Quote from Tinfoil HatIf every player in this thread read this and followed it, most people wouldn't be able to comment at all on the non-rotating formats. I made an prediction because I hear from a lot of people that SnT should be banned. Hell, I've been playing the card in a Vintage Oath variant, and its redonkulous there too. Would you have preferred I jumped on the "unban earthcraft" train (which I totally do not support) without even doing a smidgen of research??
Quote from izzetmageTurn 3 kills with Wild Nacatl? Wow, that's new.
Quote from seasonsI've been perusing the spoilers one by one as they've been announced, and the only noteworthy thing, to me, about ANY of the cards that have been spoiled, is how absolutely atrocious the artwork is on every single card i've seen. am i the only person in this boat? literally every piece of artwork i've seen pertaining to M14 so far has been leagues worse than RTR, M13, or Innistrad.
Quote from THEBEASTMASTERAfter watching some of that GP Verona Finals, I felt sick to my stomach
2 grown ass men building a house of cards and then just tapping FTW, I mean WTF
Its like starcraft where both sides could only produce siege tanks and marines, and all you do is make your army bigger than the other dudes then attack FTW
Where is the finesse, where is the guile, where is unpredictability that made Magic such a great game.
Quote from rickdawgYup, I agree with the poster above. Also, STAY AWAY from MTGO Traders.
