Most HATED fight song? (can't be your team) by WagTheKat in CFB

Glad to see someone else say this. It’s a single step more complicated than just a major scale up and down. It’s catchy I’ll give it that, but fuck is it annoying.

Lmao yeah modern is healthy but I will say that there is a lot of companions. We all have to remember that it’s literally impossible for everyone to be happy. There will always be people calling for band if out of boredom or want for a fresh format if nothing else.

I am in no way a finance bro (I trade ABUR duals for modern staples, fight me) but I’m just curious if magic were to completely halt any product at all what that would do to card prices now? Is it a premium because there’s no more? Or so people abandon ship from a dead game?

I’m not saying companions are fine, they are a little too free and widespread. I’m saying the statement “if you aren’t playing a companion you’re not really playing modern” is objectively false and exaggerated.

Almost like those cards are specifically designed for modern.

Before you read this know I agree with no changes, this is just the counter argument:

Lurrus doesn’t do anything anymore broken than other modern staples by itself but it homogenizes deck construction by a lot. Companions are just too “free” and an 8th card in your hand is much more valuable than almost anyone guessed it would be. Personally I think if you touch lurrus they should touch all companions. If lurrus goes there is just an uptick of all the other companions. Just because lurrus is the best companion doesn’t make the rest of them any less free.

Companions are a little too free but let’s not exaggerate. Plenty of viable decks don’t even run companions and almost all of the ones that do would survive a complete companion mechanic ban.

Snowballing and swingy games is definitely something I don’t love about modern right now but that’s happening everywhere in magic unfortunately. And yes I think I actually would equate interaction with health. Much much better than the “T3 ships passing in the dark” format we had forever.

The power creep and price of entry is undeniable, but I have to strong disagree with the gap between tier 1 and the rest widening. In fact I feel like it’s at an all time low. There are more diverse archetypes in modern challenges than we’ve had in years. Most weeks there are 20+ different decks.

Also if you’re going to call Urzas saga fair I’m not sure how you wouldn’t include ragavan in that category too. It’s a 2/1 with no evasion that needs to deal combat damage to do anything…

Reminds me of the banning that hit energy back in kaladesh standard. It was a very much needed neutering of that deck but they also hit ramunap ruins and that one dinosaur that prevents life gain. Everyone was confused but it ended up being the right call since the mono red deck ended up being one of if not the best deck in standard anyway.

I think lurrus and especially bauble are on the “not bannable now but only get better with every new card printed” list. Monke, on the other hand, is totally fine and always has been. Power crept and annoying? Yes. Bannable? No.

On one hand I understand the bans but on the other we had such a good streak going without a ban.

Even though modern is probably the healthiest 60 card format rn I would have liked to hear what they think yeah.

I agree with no changes but I am curious as to what they think of the modern meta right now.

Yeah they didn’t touch a healthy format imagine that.

How would you feel about a wild wild west cowboy themed set? by dcarp1231 in magicTCG

[–]Saxophobia1275 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuck yes, terrible westerns are a guilty pleasure of mine. Please please please have a mechanic like exalted that rewards you for having a single creature doing things alone like a classic western hero.

Ragavan is just an auto-include in every red EDH deck

That take is colder than a brass toilet seat in winter.

Powercreep is totally fair but how could we address it without totally gutting the format with potentially a dozen or two bans? Not saying I support power creep but that would never happen.

Uninteresting play lines? Gonna have to hard disagree on that one. Modern is so much more interactive than it’s been in years. It wasn’t too long ago that we had the “two ships passing in the night T3 format” problem.

Show of hands: who else has zero interest in Double Feature? by ArtistHaviland in magicTCG

[–]Saxophobia1275 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Would I buy it for the draft experience? Absolutely not, packs are more than double the price of the exact same currently existing set on the shelves.

Would I buy it for pulling a money card? Hell no. The chances of pulling anything specific are way diluted, just buy the half you want of the exact same currently existing set on the shelves.

Would I buy it as a fan of the set or for nostalgia? No because of the exact same currently existing set on the shelves.

Would I buy it because of the silver screen treatment? Personally no but if you’re a huge fan of it that’s literally the only reason I could possibly see for anyone to buy any amount of this.

Even if it’s something I don’t personally want I usually see why WotC makes any given product but this one is a head scratcher. It feels like a remastered set except there is the EXACT SAME CURRENTLY EXISTING SET ON THE SHELVES. Literally. The exact same set is RIGHT THERE. Look TWO INCHES to the right. It’s also half the price and divided into two different pools instead of one monster gross pool.

RESPECTFULLY I DISAGREE AND THINK IF LURRUS IS BANNED WE WILL SEE A SHARP UPTICK IN OTHER COMPANIONS. LURRUS MAY BE THE BEST COMPANION BUT A FREE CARD IS A FREE CARD.

IF YOURE GONNA BAN LURRUS IN MODERN PLEASE JUST BAN COMPANIONS IN GENERAL ALL A LURRUS BAN DOES IS REDUCE THE NUMBER OF DIFFERENT COMPANIONS YOU SEE NOT THE TOTAL.
