Wrenn and Six Discussion

I myself am also very behind the spirit of Modern Horizons, what it tries to do and how it does it. I rate MH1 an overall 8/10 and here's why:
I like the concept of "fixing" legacy cards and make them suitable for Modern. However, I think they could have been about half an inch stronger.
The set is very flavorful.
I like most of the reprints, yet I think there should have been others.
Mix and match mechanics are a homerun.
My conclusion is, as a proof of concept MH1 was a homerun. They still need to adjust some knobs to make it better, but I certainly think this needs to be regular product. It will impact Modern at some point, and my personal preference would be that the impact results in a broader environment aka more decks being playable competitively, rather than pushing a hand full of decks over the top.
Thanks for reading and sorry for long post.

Horizons' code is MH1, which definitely indicates they want to leave the door open for future iterations.
Anyways, I can't say I'm super happy with Horizons. Modern's overall still where it's always been for the past while (graveyard format and all), and we had to get a fast ban on the Hogaak terror that arose from the set release. All that's really changed, in my not-very-informed opinion, is that the cost of buying into Modern increased, just because of some upgrades for a few decks (most notably Wrenn and Six ).
If I wanted a format where every set shook things up dramatically, Standard exists and fills that niche just fine. The whole appeal of nonrotating formats is that you get over the upfront cost and then maybe tweak your deck a little every set. Horizons, to me, sets a dangerous precedent where the Modern meta becomes dictated by new targeted set printings rather than just naturally absorbing the best of each new Standard set.
Personal dislike aside, I'm not sure how well Horizons has done. It's theoretically a print-to-demand set, but I hear word that many stores are still sitting on boxes and not likely to order more. Wallet fatigue could be the issue, given that WAR came out just before and also shook up every constructed format.

Been playtesting a lot lately, and it has gone very well.
I've made two MB changes:
-1 Walking Ballista +1 Chandra, Torch of Defiance : The deck really struggles to close out the game sometimes, and with all the Karns I can always get to Ballista when I need it. I may end up running two in the side.
As for SB changes:
Switched out Crucible of Worlds for Chalice of the Void . For every reason Crucible should be great, but because Wrenn and Six can handle so much of the same functionality plus some, I found myself never wanting to wish for Crucible. Chalice was an immediate thought to combo with Trinisphere to lock the opponent out of even more spells, and running it MB really requires Simians.
I am still on the hunt for 1-2 more artifact based alternate wincons to test. So far the runner's up are Goblin Charbelcher and God-Pharaoh's Statue . If I could guarantee I could get more mana on the board I would definitely try Blightsteel Colossus but unfortunately I hardly ever get above 8 or 9.

@SP3CTR3_chelts: BUMP: PLAYSTATION 3, WILL RETAIL FOR (SWITCHES CLIPS ENTIRELY) JUST $299.
Wait. Sarkhan Vol knew Elspeth Tirel? This must be about SHARDS OF ALARA Era crap. These two, alongside an enraged Ajani, & Tezzeret when he was considered "Heroic", fought against Nicol Bolas; right? That's the only hint I have at the Sarkhan & Elspeth Relation. Sarkhan became evil, Elspeth was last seen in Theros when having an identity. Sarkhan is now less Chaotic Evil, now he no longer serves Bolas; & even reminded the Elder Dragon of their former alliance.
Personally, I'd decide on Xantcha regardless as Rakdos as an Identity never had the idea of Political matter before; just Mindless Violence & worse (See: Hatebear Decks.).
As for stuff to get, it updated.
- Gaea's Cradle (For Omnath.)
- Gauntlet of Might (For Mono- Burn)
- Lion's Eye Diamond (For cEDH Boros)
- Wrenn and Six (For Superfriends, & Lord Windgrace )
- Force of Will (Several Decks involving )
- Many Mana Rocks.
- Other crap.
Well, do you want to check my Omnath deck yet? Just asking as a reminder. ;D

- Wrenn and Six is powerful, no doubt.
- The 'walker works well in the current meta, but the format is still young.
- There are many card combinations that work consistently due to the nature of the Oathbreaker format; many of them powerful, even amongst the lower ranked 'walkers.
- The 'walkers in maximum-power have been assessed to have far greater latent abilities and combos, even if they are slower.
I was going to write more, but I felt like I was extrapolating.
Saheeli, the Gifted is banned according to the Oathbreaker Ban List (https://oathbreakermtg.org/banned-list/)
There may be some other reason pertaining to this on the website, but I can think of a couple good ones to supplement:
- She provides a mana-cost reduction as a +1 that could be very easily abused.
- This mana-cost reduction works with her other +1.
- It is more than likely due to her synergizing too well with artifacts.

I personally think Wrenn and Six should in the top tier. His low cost and plus 1 when combined with his signature spell Crop Rotation and Strip Mine will lock most decks out of the game by as early as turn 2-3 consistently. I’ve had it happen to me numerous times.
No data for this card yet.
