Hello fellow Planeswalkers. I made this thread so we can discuss the cards currently on the Modern banlist (SEE BOTTOM OF POST) and look if there may be candidates for unbanning, since it has been a while since something moved off the list.
I'm one of those crazy people that wants to live in a world where Mental Misstep and Gitaxian Probe are legal, but I see how that's not realistic whatsoever, so I won't talk about here. Let's have this discussion to be about REALISTIC, reasonable and safe unbannings.
Here are my candidates:
Deathrite Shaman - With all the easy cheap removal and grave hate in the format plus the general push of power level in the recent years, is this really a big deal anymore? Not even sure Jund wants it anymore. Since this doesn't enable a game winning combo or lockout on the spot, I think it deserves a second chance.
Artifact land cycle ala Ancient Den. So, they even injected another 10 artifact lands - are those even being played much competitively? My gut is this was a probe to see if they indeed could unban the old artifact lands. Artifact removal is much more available these days and the old artifact lands don't even come with indestructible sooo...
Rite of Flame - but Sergio! Fast mana is broken. Yes indeed. But they did ban Simian Spirit Guide and hear my out why Rite of Flame is weaker. SSG does not require you to play or a mountain to activate, Rite does and even costs a mana to begin with. SSG has a secondary feature being a creature and can be cast at a reasonable cost of 3 mana. Rite doesn't have that. Since they took Mox Opal and SSG, I think Rite of Flame might deserve a chance as a weaker substitution.
Please tell me what you think about that and/or show me your argumenst for other unbannings that you can see happening.

Sorcery - Dilemma
Each player secretly chooses and then exiles a non-land permanent card from his or her hand face down. At the beginning of the next end step each player turns all cards exiled with ~ face up and casts that spell without paying it’s mana cost. If any spells cast this way share a card type, each player sacrifices all creatures and lands he or she controls.

Bei so vielen 'target Land' sachen, sieht das ja fast aus wie ein grünes Deck x)
Wieso Aquitect's Will ? Um das unendlich zu verdoppeln und deine Lib zu ziehen?
Combos: 1. Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal 1. Whim of Volrath + Gilded Lotus / Gilded Lotus Funktioniert Sapphire Medallion mit Buyback? Da man das Medallion verdoppeln kann, würde das Dinge vereinfachen :)
Du hast Mystic Remora oO?

AFAIK you can't maintain a Glacial Chasm lock forever with just it and Stage. Stage can copy Chasm and have no counters on it, but cumulative upkeep will still apply, so really it's just a way of extending the amount of time you can keep it out.
To truly maintain the lock indefinitely, you need something like a Solemnity -type effect or a way to replay your lands from the graveyard (plus a way to play extra lands to counterbalance the ETB sacrifice).
Anyways, other tricks with Stage that I know of (non-exhaustive):
- You can copy a land that produces extra mana to accelerate your mana production, sometimes without the downsides the land typically comes with (e.g. Lotus Field , Cloudpost ).
- You can copy a hexproof or indestructible land to get around land destruction (depending on what it is). More sneakily, copying a basic land will fizzle Wasteland -type effects used on Stage.
- You can copy a land with a particular (super)type to turn on something that checks for such, e.g. copying a snow land to enable deathtouch on Ice-Fang Coatl when you already have two other snow lands.
- Just like with Depths, you can copy Blast Zone , which will then have 0 counters on it (useful for wiping tokens).

I'm not worried about Vindicate , since Maelstrom Pulse has been in Modern since Alara, and I don't expect the land destruction option to make that much if a difference. (Thereby guaranteeing I get steamrolled by LD some day.) In particular, Legacy/Vintage has everything on the reserved list, which includes the original dual lands, Aluren , Academy Rector , Chains of Mephistopheles , Sylvan Library , Swords to Plowshares , Grim Monolith as some highlights, and anything banned in Modern-- Deathrite Shaman , Field of the Dead , Once Upon a Time , Cloudpost , and so on.

Mystic Reflection can target any creature, even lands. Of the 4 Nissas that can untap Cloudpost , 2 will make it a creature and 1 gives you the option. My guess is the interaction was the result of MTGO's programming, which should also solve the combo as it should limit the number of tokens you can produce of a given type.
