B&R, frustrated 

Remember when Wizards understood that needing to ban a card was a sign that they’d failed?

They’ve forgotten that now, and that makes them fail harder and more often.

Just once I want them to design a full year of Standard where no single deck takes over the meta. I want Ixalan/Dominaria Standard back. That was good Magic that didn’t hurt anyone, and all you creeps complaining about low power can be butthurt somewhere else.

For context, Omnath, Locus of Creation has finally been banned, after weeks of waffling.

If you’d just design the game so it was actually hard to cast a four-color mythic, you wouldn’t have this problem

@DialMforMara if nothing else that means it's cheaper to pick up for my K&T deck.

@Haphazard Eventually. And maybe it’ll get low enough in the next couple months that I can write a budget deck tech for it. But I doubt it.

@DialMforMara budget deck tech for Omnath: don't
:p

@Haphazard Budget Elementals is totally a thing

and adding more colors means you have more options

@DialMforMara I know. I made a budget elemental modern deck for like 13 dollars. It was just a joke of a true budget omnath deck is don't (0 dollars) cause current discord of omnath is its not fun to play against.

Though if this was around April 1st I would support that as being the opening thesis statement to an article. Then doing the actual deck tech because April fools really kinda sucks.

@DialMforMara the "move fast and fail often" world of agile tech development can work well when you're releasing nightly builds

not so much a 1-2 year lead on unmodifiable cardboard
