It says so much to me about the current state of the game when the response is "11 bans, each justified".FoodChainGoblins wrote: ↑8 months agoYep, 11 bans, each of them pretty solidly justified.
Regarding Modern, I do actually believe that the Arcum's Astrolabe ban did have a very positive effect so far. There still are some issues. I think that Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath should be banned. More importantly, I do think some things should be unbanned. But if WotC refuses to do unbans, then I think that Modern is about as good as it can get.
Then I think back to their announcement, where they got away from any scheduled time and tried to rebrand these as an early rotation. And I end up reading that as 11 emergency bans, and they call out possibly more needed.
