I don't expect elspeth to come back, but Baneslayer is not by any means a broken card. Seriously, the only problem with her is the PRICE, and even then, she's not the most expensive card in standard. She's trailing almost $20 behind Jace. But the main thing is, Wizards doesn't control cards' prices, nor do they make any money from singles. Does Baneslayer change the format? Yes indeed. But she doesn't break it. We don't need to go back to the old days of using Serra Angel. XD

>> No.10071482

>- M10 duals, no enemy.

Deprive becomes the new counterspell.

They jam in Expedition Map.

Some silly blue expensive-to-cast counterspell that ends the game and deals damage to players equal to any remaining mana in their manapools wouldn't be a surprise.

Planar Cleansing stays (for as long as planeswalkers are around)

Allies in M11.

maybe have vampires get reprinted... who knows?

>> No.10071558


Zig is a bad deck
Green stompy is a bad deck
RDW doesn't splash green for BBE.

The only decks that run BBE and perform well are Jund, and Vengevine naya. And Naya isn't even all that good either

Note, I'm in no way saying Bloodbraid is NOT a freaking amazing card.

Back in my day, we may dual color decks with dual lands and we LIKED IT.

True. But again, Wizards really has no control over singles' prices. I doubt they'd reprint the card just to bring the price down (if they didn't reprint it, it cycles out, and the price still goes down) Either they don't reprint it, or they do, but it won't be because of the going price either way.

>> No.10071627

Why would they print Allies in M11 if they didn't even print any in RoE? Wizards cares about flavor.

>> No.10071661

>Deprive becomes the new counterspell.

>Some silly blue expensive-to-cast counterspell that ends the game and deals damage to players equal to any remaining mana in their manapools wouldn't be a surprise.
No to that specific effect. The mana thing would do absolute shit. Beyond that, not flashy enough for HURR DURR TIMMY SPELL. On second thought, no to the whole thing in general.

>Allies in M11.

>maybe have vampires get reprinted... who knows?
Maybe. I'd be okay with this, though it'll never be as cool a tribe as Zombies was.

IMO Baneslayer shouldn't have been Mythic-Slot in the first place.

Neither should Vengevine.

Printing staple cards in the Mythic slot makes the game way less accessible to new comers, hell they are wallet-hurting enough in the rare slot for anyone who just wants to go to an FNM every once in a while.

>> No.10071764

>>Wizards doesn't control cards' prices, nor do they make any money from singles
Wizards controls singles' prices because they decide what rarity tournament staples will be at. Sometimes they under-/over-estimate the power level of a card (Tarmo anyone?), but other than that they know perfectly well what they are doing.

Wizards care about the 2ndary market, because valuable singles means more boosters bought (both because of pro resellers and because it makes normal players make impulse purchases dreaming of the $$$ card).

So yes, Wizards care. Unfortunately, what they care about (on this matter) is not exactly our interest.

>> No.10072296

I'm saying that when WotC chooses the power level/rarity of the cards, they have a very good idea of the price those cards will reach on the 2nd market as a result.

It's no accident that BSA was both a tournament staple and a mythic (and is still worth a good 50$ as a result), and I'm sure they sold a good number of M10 boosters on that fact alone.

(Not that I really blame them, mind you. They have to make money if Magic is to survive.)

Stone Rain is a possibility though. It's bound to come back eventually.

>> No.10073221

It's not really utility, I mean it's not like a dual land or something.

The big problem is that LAND DESTRUCTION IS NOT FUN, like counterspells and discard, so they try not making spells like that too good. A turn 2 land destruction spell definitely qualify as "too good", unless it has a crippling drawback (in which case it's unplayable).

I think of LD as utility because there's generally only enough "good" LD to justify being run as a tempo card or as an answer to problem lands (i.e., manlands, Emeria, the Sky Ruin) rather than as a "theme" (LD.dec).

Plus, there's not much of a need for Path once Shards cycles out.

See, Path was able to double as emergency mana fixing, which was insanely important in a set that focused so heavily on multicolor.

Ok, you guys probably love it because it's low-cost removal, but I'm part of the camp that sees Path as being part of the large amount of manafixing that showed up in Shards (from landcycling to panoramas/Obelisks/borderposts and so on).

...though I'm gonna miss pulling the Path->Archive Trap combo... such a dick combo too...

...oh well, there's always Needlebite trap for Oust... but it'll never work out well...
