NobodyPicksBulbasaur King of Games
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.

I'm also confused about the "tradition" that's being ruined. Can you elaborate?

Yeah let's let Modern calm the hell down before we power ban anything for no reason.
And why the hell would Amulet Bloom get banned out of the format? You can't get all pissed at a deck just because it does powerful stuff. That's the entire point of eternal formats.

This week's SCG open has one Abzan deck in the top 8. It also has a Naya midrange deck. Local metagames matter. So do the skills of the pilots.
Any realistic deck has a shot in the current metagame. Abzan is just the posterchild "good stuff" deck.

All I'm hearing is that everyone created their own little Magic utopia in their heads, and are pissed off that WotC didn't produce exactly what each individual person envisioned.
We don't even know what the hell DKT looks like yet. Can we hold off on the trashfest until there's at least something real to complain about?

It's much more likely that the dragonlords will impose their wills upon the remnants of the clans. Without a will of their own, the identity of the clans will become the identity of the dragonlords (i.e. 2-colors, matching the dragons).

Speculating on the clan mechanics is foolish at this point. It's unlikely that any of us will guess them correctly, and even if we do it's not like there's a prize.
The "morph" mechanic will probably remain Manifest. Manifest seems tied to Ugin, and since he'll be around for DTK, it would make sense for Manifest to stick around as well. Could be wrong. I've been wrong before. I'll be wrong again, I'm sure.

I'm building a Bant-colored Dovescape deck, and I need a finisher. Basically, I expect the board to eventually be doves as far as the eyes can see, and I need a card to break the stalemate.
I'd prefer if it was a creature spell because I don't want to rely solely on Boseiju, Who Shelters All.

@RoarMaster: With 'X' spells, X has a value while on the stack. If I cast it for X=4, it has a CMC of 7 while it's on the stack. When Dovescape counters it, it counters it from the stack, so it sees that it has a CMC of 7.
Basically, if you Convoke the chord using all of your doves, you get a large value for X, and thus get a bunch more doves when it gets countered.
