I don't really see anything to ban here. They're all good cards in a well-designed deck, but it doesn't really hinge on anything in particular. Frantic Search is probably the least fair card here, and if I were running blue combo it would definitely be a 4-of. Ban? I'm on the fence about it, and I generally prefer NOT to ban. Really awesome lists, thanks Kor!

Frantic Search is the ban I am going for with this deck, if not High Tide itself. But without certain cards, High Tide can be slowed down enough to compete against, so banning High Tide shouldn't be necessary. It should still be a deck, but it will run slower without Frantic Search.

Playtested this a few times, and yeah, Frantic Search is the problem card. If I have a Reset in my opening hand on the play and decent other cards, I can go off during my opponent's upkeep once I get 3 lands and a High Tide, but Frantic Search acting as Dark Ritual+ is what makes the combo really run. Without it, there's a much stronger chance of the storm chain grinding to a halt if you don't get lucky.

Good call, gentlemen. For now, Frantic Search will go on the ban list.

No reason not to make that change, thanks Crivaro!
