Yeah, I knew Bridge from Below was on it's way to the ban hammer. Really just a matter of time honestly because it's just one of those cards that has always been on the fringe of possibly being broken. Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis & Altar of Dementia just pushed it over the edge in my opinion.

After seeing cards like Bloodbraid Elf and Jace, the Mind Sculptor in action in a this modern "cycle" I feel comfortable saying that I like to see Stoneforge Mystic be unbanned now. Something I was VERY NOT inclined on a couple years ago perhaps but now I can see where SFM would fit in. I would be good and maybe cross fingers slow down the format a little but it wouldn't "break" it. If jace and BBE couldn't then I'm sure SFM can't neither.

I just don't want to see Splinter Twin again because it's not because it's too strong or busted...... it's because every control deck conceivable eventually morphs into a twin deck and makes the format super redundant, hurting the diversity in decks(particularly control decks) and kills any type of suspense to the meta. Games against twin are fun.......having 1/3 of the field be a twin deck isn't just because it's the "de facto control deck".

I was afraid they were going to unban Stoneforge Mystic . It's a good thing they didn't: a 4/4 on turn 3 is just way overpowered.

Funkydiscogod that’s all you have to add? Lmao. Any reason or logic behind it?

I agree that they won’t bank anything available in Horizons.. yet. SFM should be unbanned. Turn 3 batterskull isn’t scary. And the line of Giver of Runes into Stoneforge Mystic seems sweet, and exactly the kind of thing modern needs.

I don’t see them having any reason to unban Stoneforge Mystic until they have a set with it in to profit from (ala Jace). Doesn’t make business sense to unban such a popular card without getting some sweet money gains

I can most definitely see Stoneforge Mystic being unbanned. I’ve got no clue why they keep avoiding an unban. If they do, I don’t think a Umezawa's Jitte unban would be wise. We wanna make fair decks better, and Jitte makes combat really unfun.

As for the Hogaak deck running around, I feel like too many people are clamoring for multiple cards to be banned from it (which is a bit much, imo) for WotC to ignore. The main reason for this is that the deck is waaay more resilient to hate than Dredge has ever been. The fact that 2 Surgical Extraction on key pieces of the deck usually isn’t enough is insane, and the Hogaak player’s sideboard is dedicated to fighting through hate.

Admittedly, I’d really like one of two things to happen:

-we get a sweeping ban that hits multiple decks. I’m talking a ban on Stirrings, Looting, and Bridge from Below . Make the upcoming Mythic Championship something more interesting than Hogaak mirrors all day.

-we get a massive, sweeping unban. If people don’t want to lose their busted digging spells, then give the blue decks their own. Unban Preordain or Ponder . Or both, why the heck not? Obviously SFM would be my biggest hope but I don’t feel like they’d do that without giving us a reprint first because that’d be an easy $100 card. Splinter Twin could be fine. Finally, a card I think would be interesting to see back would be Seething Song . It’s not like Storm’s even Tier 2 at this point; while people play it for nostalgia, it doesn’t do well anymore. Song would give it the boost it needs, and it could also spawn some new archetypes, like bigger All-In red. This would be my preferred course of action, but I am insane, so take that with a grain of salt. :)

not sure why people keep mentioning Ancient Stirrings . they can leave Faithless Looting alone as well. too many other decks depend on it.

never played against hogaak myself, but looking at the decklist i see no immediate problems with it. it runs zero interaction, and its not like graveyard strategies are a new thing. modern players should already know by now to run some sort of grave hate. same thing with Altar of Dementia and artifact removal. players should already have some anyway. i'd disagree that hogaak is "tier 0". just because a deck wins doesn't mean its unbeatable. its just a numbers game. the deck is simply the new hotness so lots of people play it, so naturally it wins a bunch due to sheer representation.

hogaak itself certainly won't be banned since wotc still wants to sell horizons packs.

i think they should unban Stoneforge Mystic and Umezawa's Jitte .

I propose to take out Aria of Flame for Goblin Engineer .

  1. We don't need another win condition and Aria of Flame is kind of a drag with its 'Instant and Sorcery' only while giving our opponents 10 lives each.

  2. We need to have our pieces connect and leave less to the luck of the draw.

Right now we have disconnects in our sequence to winning... Feather, the Redeemed has a disconnect with Sunforger which tutors for Enlightened Tutor to grab us Paradox Engine but only if we get to draw using a draw spell. But where is Aetherflux Reservoir ?

I have Thalia's Lancers to tutor for Paradox Engine , even though it is up to luck if I draw Thalia's Lancers , which leaves Enlightened Tutor to grab Aetherflux Reservoir .

But by having Goblin Engineer I can grab any one of the missing artifacts that is required for our win condition. With a casting cost of 1R and activation cost R, we just need Crimson Wisps or Expedite to pull our artifact into the battlefield for a total CMC of 4, which is the same as Aetherflux Reservoir and less than Paradox Engine .

And, if need be, we can also pull Sunforger , straight into the battlefield. Which is cheaper CMC than using Stoneforge Mystic and Open the Armory (When combined with the casting cost of Sunforger ).

Yes, we need to sacrifice an artifact for the activation but that's why we have Ancient Den and Great Furnace , and that Mind Stone doesn't seem so useless in the late game anymore.

By the way: Goblin Engineer can be tutored by Imperial Recruiter and Recruiter of the Guard . I might even take out Thalia's Lancers and replace it with Goblin Matron / Goblin Recruiter .
