Two Planeswalkers walk into a bar…
This comic would have been a whole lot more topical if I’d made it a couple of months ago when [card]Jace the Mind Sculptor[/card] got banned in the first place. He’s banned in Modern format too and that’s kinda recent. Right?
So it’s fine to have [card]Jace Beleren[/card]. [card]Jace, Memory Adept[/card] fine too. But as soon as your blue buddy starts sculpting minds he is outta there.
Pretty glad he got banned. When a bejillion dollar card like that becomes a virtual pre-requisite for Standard decks it makes a format pretty intimidating to get into. I imagine the recent rise in FNM attendance is due in part to his banning.
But what’s this? They’ve banned both [card]Preordain[/card] and [card]Ponder[/card] in Modern format. Isn’t that like banning milk at breakfast time? Apparently deck consistancy is considered a bad thing if it leads to consistant third turn wins.
I can see their reasoning behind it. It was either ban these two cards or ban a huge swath of powerful combo cards. It does seem like they’re taking away a big reason to play Blue in the first place.
It’s Innistrad pre-release time this weekend and that is ultra exciting.
They’ve really hit the nail on the head with the horror world theme and there’s a whole lot of new stuff to love.
I have the urge to staple together 13 zombie tokens just in case I get the chance to slam them down all in one go with [card]Army of the Damned[/card].
I shall be there at Mana Leak on Sunday. Hope to see you there.
