I've been playing Magic on and off for a number of years now. I got back into it right before M12 came out. I like playing standard because I like the pay-as-you-go approach, as opposed to dropping hundreds of dollars at once on a legacy deck. It also forces me to keep making and playing new decks, which is half the fun.
I did recently drop my collection to pick up a legacy deck, and I've been having lots of fun with it. The people at my LGS help me tweak it, and it's been smooth sailing.
I also love playing in limited formats and EDH, because they turn deck making into a skill, and forces creative play choices.

When I built Sen Triplets, it was pretty much just a pile of the cool esper cards I owned and my playgroup knew it. They just let me have fun.
Your playgroup will adapt to your deck based on how you build it and how you play it. Don't be "that guy" and you shouldn't have anything to worry about.

People seem to forget that Wizards has been balancing mana in Standard for a looong time now. They know what they're doing.
People need to understand that shocklands are probably about the best lands that Standard will ever see again. Hoping for lands on a similar or greater power level will surely leave you dissapointed. Inconsistent mana is an intrinsic part of MtG. If it were perfect every time the game would be worse, not better.

I never said dual lands. Simply nonbasic. There's so much room for development in that space it's crazy.

MaRo today commented that the new Nissa tutoring for only "basic" forests was due to power level. Now, I don't know if you've seen Nissa, but her power level seems pretty low. She's definitely not Modern or Legacy viable.
This leads me to believe that if Wizards is specifying "basic" forest for power level reasons, they're doing it for Standard. Why would they specify "basic" forest? Because there will be nonbasic forests in Standard alongside Nissa.
Wizards is making more nonbasic lands with basic land types, and they're doing it soon!
