I'm not saying that t1 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is the deck that beats Eldrazi, because it's not. Eldrazi's major threats come in the form of giant creatures, so Thalia does nothing but run in terror as the Eldrazi menace laughs in her face. The fact is, Chrome Mox alone does so many broken things by itself. Imagine the nuttiest 2-drop you can think of. Now imagine it on turn 1. That's what my point about Mox is. You get too far behind if you don't have your Chrome Mox to also play on t1.
Summer Bloom , and its deck, Amulet Bloom, was a grindy combo deck that rarely could be answered. Imagine a deck representing only ~3% of the meta taking 2 spots in the top 8. That was an insane win rate for the players that could make it happen, and therefore Summer Bloom was banned.
Imagine a meta where Amulet Bloom was allowed to run wild. With the new addition of Growth Spiral , I believe the deck would have been even better than before.
So yes, modern should have a banlist. There's a very good reason for it, as it keeps the power of the format in check. Without the banlist, there would be little variance in decks that would be viable in the format.
Also, let me add that your ignorance and dismissal of other people's opinion is really appaling, and it's probably not healthy in the spirit of this forum, this game, and the format in general.

"i dont really have any idea on what the competitive/pro tour scene would look like as far as what people would play with no modern ban"
Then why are you even having this discussion? Before making this kind of argument, you should have analyzed the metagame that the cards were banned in. Then, look at the win rates of said decks/usage level of said cards. Only then would you have enough knowledge to fully understand why there is a Modern Banlist. Most of the cards that were banned had a really high usage rate, or were key points of decks that were neigh unbeatable during their time, in much the same metagame that exists today (depending on the deck/card). If something like Mental Misstep was legal in modern, 9/10 most played cards in modern would be shut off (based on MTGGoldfish), and 19/50 of the most played cards. If Chrome Mox were legal, imagine t1 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben . It would be unbeatable, it's really that simple.
So before making an argument that is not even close to being based in fact, do the research. Then you can/will understand why there is a banlist in modern.
While some cards are probably deserving to come off the banlist, many of the spells have their place there, and will stay for many years to come.

Want to wish you the best of luck in LA! Went to GP Memphis and played a bit last week, so I really hope everything goes well for you!

Hey guys, just a quick update:
For some reason, there's weird things happening with the code to the description, and I've been going in and fixing it when I see it. It looks like its caused by extra spaces between panels/accordions, which makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever. Anyways, if someone is doing it, it's kinda messing with my OCD, so there's that.
And if it's not anyone no worries :). Not trying to throw shade here, just found it odd.

Ensnaring Bridge , tap effects like Static Orb , counterspells, Toxic Deluge etc. Its never been an issue for me to be honest, creatures swinging hasn't been much of a problem as people can usually never play creatures in the first place through my tax effects, or are too busy trying to remove my stax pieces.

So, some thoughts TheSimikBOat,
Thanks! I never liked Jund, but I liked the playstyle, so I made something I could enjoy a bit more. I favor the colors better, and imo I have equal ways to control the board/stack. Now onto your suggestions,
Grim Flayer is good on paper, but it's really not the kind of creature this deck is looking for. I don't think it's better than any other creature in here, and for that reason, I'm going to have to say no.
As for Tasigur, the Golden Fang , I'm not sure it's what I want either. I like the ability, but it makes me choose between fat goyfs or recursion. I'll say maybe.
The 2 extra Leyline of the Void is really unnecessary in my opinion. Getting one on a 7/6/5 card hand is fairly easy, so I think 2 is the right number.
I really want Hydroid Krasis to be an amazing playable. Its abilities work really well, and even a 2/2 flyer trampler for 4 that draws a card and gains a life on cast is crazy good. In practice, I'm hoping it's as good as it is on paper.
Thanks for the vote, and all your feedback!

Going in to fix the code in the description, please leave it alone until it's fixed :)

Aamuunsaakka, that link is broken, but I'm headed to your profile to find it now :)
A build I've been experimenting with for some time now, I'm testing out Hydroid Krasis in a sultai midrange shell.

Darkshadow327 Voltron/Control most definitely. I would build Voltron personally, because there are better commanders to build control in esper.

n0bunga indeed it would be! just enter it into the first box, and you should be okay!
also, idea I've been working on for a while now:
February 15, 2019 2:39 p.m.
n0bunga I'd be more than happy to show you the code!
color;text-shadow:#colorofshadow 0px 0px 10px; font-family:desiredfont;
the "desiredfont" is where you can change the font of your user. The first two px allow you to shift the shadow on the x/y axis to your liking, and the third one is for blur. Any html color works, and any html compatible font also works. And that's pretty much it, it's way more simple than it looks.
I'm not exactly sure how the code will affect the rainbow effect on your name, rather curious to see the result.

DiverDown, I feel ya. Toning down what you are used to playing is rough, but here's where I would start:
Firstly, I would design a theme for my deck. By theme, I do not mean an Archetype. I mean a gimmick that your deck is going to let you achieve. For example, if that gimmick is to create chaos, there are ways to make that happen!
Next, I would search for a commander that I like that will help me achieve this gimmick. This is largely how The Fat Blue Weirdo came to be. This is one of the more intimate parts of the process, so feel free to personalize as much as you want.
Finally, I would select cards that help me with my gimmick, and push me to succeed. These can be tutors, ramp, or a CA engine.
But most importantly, build to have fun instead of building to win. This is probably the hardest part because I personally think that winning is fun. But I came to realize that you can still have the same amount of fun (or even more) with games that you lose. Just because a game doesn't go your way doesn't mean that it wasn't a fun game.
And that's about all I have to say on that.

Cross, the Silent Partner
Legendary Creature - Human Mercenary
Whenever Cross attacks and isn't blocked, you may copy an instant or sorcery spell in a graveyard with CMC 3 or less. You may cast the copy without paying its mana cost.
Lets keep the heist train going! Another one.
