This is clearly abzan and could be really, really good. Essentially you can play this as a way to win the game. Bolster a creature without summoning sickness to give it +X/+X, swing - win the game. I hope there's one that's like a permanent Giant Growth. This mechanic has the potential to be really dumb.

JWiley129 No, you should read what I wrote. I said "ARGUABLY" (note the quotations and caps this time so you don't miss the point again). And yes, it is ARGUABLE because every red deck in Modern runs 4 Lightning Bolt, and in certain cases, some decks run red ONLY for Lightning Bolt. The point was comparing the level of imbalance between those two cards (according to their respective formats). Legacy players aren't worried about people running Brainstorm because it's a format full of first turn kills and Force of Will and whatnot. There are things much more concerning in legacy than Brainstorm and Ponder.

We're talking about Modern here, and the only two cards mentioned so far that come close to the power level of Lightning Bolt for the cost are Path to Exile and Thoughtseize, and yet both of those cards are like infinitely more situational, and don't even come close to the power level of bolt, and to further boot, have drawbacks that bolt doesn't have... and that's completely understandable because neither of those cards were printed in ALPHA.

As for banning Giant Growth, I'm ALL for it. I think every card originally from a vintage set should be dead and gone by now. The only cards I've EVER condoned reprints of from vintage/legacy are the Onslaught fetches, and that's because I think fetches are an integral part of the modern format, as well as the shocks. If they want to reprint vintage or legacy cards for play only in vintage or legacy, that's fine by me. Vintage Masters is a great set in MTGO, they should consider doing something along those lines on paper cards.

Fleetwood-Mat - Did you just say Brainstorm is worse than Lightning Bolt? Are you still talking about the same Brainstorm that is restricted in Vintage and a 4 of in EVERY BLUE LEGACY DECK? Brainstorm, a card they tried to "fix" by making Ponder, which is just as strong as Brainstorm? They made a "fixed" Lightning Bolt in Shock, but no one is going to say that Shock is better than Lightning Bolt. Also, Lightning Bolt was printed in M10, so it is Modern legal. And furthermore, are you saying that Giant Growth should be banned as well? It's from Alpha, might as well ban it.

I could keep going on, but if you honestly think that Brainstorm is weaker than Lightning Bolt we can't help you.

TheHroth: I like the pumps used in the deck currently better then Giant Growth, since the others give a bigger buff, and have other modes.

Phyrexian Crusader would have to be unblocked three times in a row in order to win with the sword. Similarly, Mirran Crusader only has to connect with the sword three times, and that can go to two times if you have already dealt damage or they use lots of fetchlands and shocklands. I think it is more on theme, and unless you have a burn/RDW/Delver heavy meta, then it might be better to use the protection from green to dodge Tarmogoyf.

Really it depends on your meta, but Mirran Crusader is more efficient than Phyrexian Crusader in a deck that doesn't run lots of Giant Growth effects and Inkmoth Nexus

Might of Old Krosa over Giant Growth you have so much evasion that the instant speed in probably to worth the one extra damage you could've dealt otherwise.
