Re: Hybrid mana

I feel like people are making this far more complicated than it needs to be. Just look at extort cards. Those are currently a "corner case", allowed via a loophole about rules text. How about we do away with that loophole and treat all hybrid mana costs in the same way as extort is treated? Boom, si...

You're over-focusing on burgeoning. The point is that all 1 CMC ramp becomes more powerful without Sol Ring.

and almost all of it is green.
And they all have drawbacks that make them not an auto-include like Sol Ring which is my point.

Re: [SCD] Sol Ring

@pokken First, I disagree that Burgeoning becomes more powerful in any meaningful way. What exactly becomes more powerful about it? Let's say we're sitting across the table, you play t1 Burgeoning and then I play t1 Sol Ring . Now t2 you have 5 lands and play Gitrog . Even with my Sol Ring , what am...

Re: [SCD] Sol Ring

The strength of g/x decks necessitates fast mana. I've seen far more nongames due to green ramp than mana rocks due to the stigma against stopping the former and numerous people running answers to the latter. Give me an example of a green ramp card nearly as egregious. I assume you're talking more ...

Re: [SCD] Sol Ring

t1 land, exploration, land, skyshroud ranger t2, land, land, tap skyshroud, cast gitrog Take away sol ring and you start taking the explosive starts away from non-green decks. And I think that is a big risk. Especially if you take Crypt too. I think this illustrates my point. Skyshroud Ranger , Exp...

Re: [SCD] Sol Ring

Sol Ring has demonstrated the potential to unintentionally wreck games. Easily inserted into any deck, it combines with cards which players already have heavy incentives to play, generating a great deal of mana with virtually no deck building cost. While the RC doesn’t ban cards which are only prob...

Re: Header and title font looks somewhat dated

I want to also add my feedback since you're getting mixed reviews. I strongly dislike Exo as the body font. If not for the community here, the font would actually be enough to make me not use this site.

Re: First Annual Commander Climate Survey

@SocorroTortoise Not derailing, it's all in the spirit of the Current Commander Climate :) Some other interesting notes about the results: Wishes and Banned as Commander are actually very close to parity, which is surprising because the status quo has a huge advantage. I personally voted in favor of...

Re: First Annual Commander Climate Survey

I don't think the RC should be thinking of tournament play with their bans, but rather what happens when playgroup inevitably arms race or start to run more combo. Social contract isn't always viable because everyone wants something different from this game, and sometimes total agreement is just ou...

Re: First Annual Commander Climate Survey

I cast my vote! Only advocated for Ring / Crypt bans, and voted for a surprisingly significant number of unbans. On a broader notion, I read a great post the other day that really resonated with me: cEDH is a casual format. I don't go to tournaments, I play it with friends at a kitchen table, I don'...
