Quote from ValanarchIf that was a problem for control, Scapeshift wouldn't see play (I know, its combo but it still functions as a control deck) and American control wouldn't be able to run stuff like Sphinx's Revelation. And it doesn't have to be reliant on the graveyard. Gifts Ungiven is instant speed, so you could just leave up the mana to counter something and then cast it. It seems like everything a control deck could want.
Quote from Badd BusinessYou do realize Gifts Ungiven decks play tons of disruption, right?
If turn 3 & 4 combos were the issue, Sphinx's Revelation would be the worst card in the format, but it's clearly not because those decks play disruption, just like Gifts decks do.
Quote from wsurugby10I guess I'm still wondering why play the Kuldotha Forgemaster if we basically have to play a Tron list to use it. Should we just play Tron?
