I think The Royal Scions is a perfectly good Planeswalker card with an elegant design and I think Will and Rowan have the potential to be excellent characters in the MtG multiverse.

Here is an idea for a similar deck. Ad Nauseam featuring Emry and Mox Amber. Pentad Prism, Lotus Bloom, and Mox Amber all work great with her and it covers for SSG being banned. You end up being slower but more consistent. Run Remand instead of Pact and bank on either slowing your opponent down with multi function cantrips or buy yourself enough time with Phyrexian Unlife. And yes you would be running T3feri, it slows your opponent, cantrips you, stops counter magic, and turns on Mox Amber. To top off your legendaries you could either run flip Jace or a couple copies of Spoils as an alternative to investing 5 mana into Ad Nauseam.

I don't know how else to improve that deck besides maybe a Wishclaw Talisman. You go so hard on a 3 piece 4 mana combo that you don't leave any room for interaction to slow an opponent so you can get there to begin with. Unironically play UB Twiddlestorm and ascend beyond the realm of petty magic.

It's way too early to say, Wilderness Reclamation piles + Uro/T3feri decks + Oops All Spells were combined easily 30~40% of the total meta and now they're basically all gone except for a few decks. The bans were even more drastic then Modern if we are being honest.

We can only make a couple of observations like
- Mono Green Planeswalkers is now probably the best big mana deck in the format
- Niv/Omnath decks can still exist but not having Uro/T3f means they are extremely softer to aggro
- Consequentially Auras, Burn, Mono Black and other low curve aggro decks are much stronger
- Spirits is still probably the best Collected Company deck in the format
- Lotus Storm didn't lose anything but it's going to suffer because of the rise of the aggro decks
- There's probably a good control deck in UBX colors thanks to all the good black removal + DTT people haven't found yet
- Anything that used to be considered fringe can now have a chance in the meta as long as it has a good matchup against aggro

i've also been curious over which banned cards are certainly safe or probably safe:

certainly safe:
yawgmoth's bargain
frantic search
mind's desire
goblin recruiter
mind twist

probably safe:
memory jar
library of alexandria
survival of the fittest

my gut feeling is that library is actually "certainly safe", but i haven't tried to brew enough. i just struggle to come up with a single current meta legacy deck that it would slot into and have an impact, nor can i envision what nonexistence deck would suddenly be enabled by it.

This wasn't even totally safe before goblins became decent, it actually isn't safe now, and would probably make goblins from tier 2/2.5 into tier 1. Wouldn't even say this is over 50% safe.
>yawgmoth's bargain
That should be at most probably safe. Basically just an AN that doesn't have restrictions with a lower fail rate. Not necessarily too good, but at most probably safe.
If you've ever tested this you'd know how wrong you are. I just put it as a 4 of in ANT a while ago and you never don't win the turn after it resolves.
>a single current meta legacy deck that it would slot into and have an impact
You can literally just run 4 in ANT, or at least put 4 in sideboard and you'll rarely ever lose a game against control. It also works with different types of loam decks.
>survival of the fittest
Literally has only gotten more powerful since it was banned.
I don't really know about mind twist one way or the other.

Survival is elves playable. Is it too good for elves? Probably, but with this and the supposed tier-1ing of goblins with recruiter, it would help to push some of the blue decks to their limits and spice up the higher tiers of legacy.

>Ad has so many 0 costs to hit that on average you could get away with more cards.
Sure, but taking more cards guaranteed probably makes up for the better average number of cards AN (AN gets on average (LifeTotal-1)*6/5, while Bargain always gets Lifetotal-1). There's also the aspect of being significantly better with LEDs (more important for ANT than TES) and tendrils life gain, or Weather the Storm for that matter. Playing an S&T to get with wishclaw is also a decent synergy, which would probably be used.

"Market research" needs to die. honestly most consumers don't know what the fuck they actually want in a product, and that's not just magic.

maybe those planes would be worth a 3-set block if they actually tried and worked to make them interesting. but if you're doing 1-set per plane you have no incentive to make it worth hanging around.

I also think the 3-set blocks were a more interesting draft environment just for the fact that each new set played with the previous set so you got to see cards fluctuate in power over the year. now with each new set the draft environment is a completely clean slate.
we did get that with the 2-set blocks, but it was more fun to watch things morph over the year with a once a year clean slate vs the twice a year clean slate.

>> No.77571417

>honestly most consumers don't know what the fuck they actually want in a product, and that's not just magic.
They literally just pick the people they want to market to, only take results from them, and then if anyone complains use 'market research' as an excuse, whether or not it actually really suggested their course of action.
People have some understanding of what they want, but it generally won't come through in a railroaded questionnaire or some similar bullshit.

Most company uses twitter or whatever social media as their market research.
They should ask the people who actually buy their products what they want.

Very well said. Their fucking questionnaires are an utter waste of time and designed to just reflect what they want to hear. No room for criticism, only "which of these 4 prewritten things about the new set do you like best?". No nuance or context, only "Do you like powerful cards?" to retrospectively justify their greed. No real choices, just "Which format do you like best? EDH, Brawl or getting punched in the nuts?" "Who dpyu think is more important to be represented, Nonbinary or Transgender individuals?"

How expensive is twiddle on >mtgo?
I might try it there if it is under 30 bucks.

>> No.77578526

No idea, but IRL it was already in the $50 range back when modern cards were still worth something, so now $35 for a paper version seems realistic. For this fact alone the deck is beyond based.

>> No.77578567

But you barely attack them for the win with Modern Elves. Either you combo them with the GW version or cheese them with simultaneous Shaman of the Pack triggers

>> No.77578592

So it isn't only a bad aggro deck, it is also a bad combo deck, got it king.
You need gsz, natty order, gaea's abuse, glimpse, etc... for a good elves deck.

>> No.77578602

Sure, drop a list and I'll buy into (((mtgo))) and get twiddlestorm.

For reference, my list i tuned a lot back in the days. Simply replace the fiery islet with basic islands and the deck is dirt cheap. I'd have to take a look if any recent stuff could improve the sideboard.
If the only combos left are dredge, balustrade, infect, heliod and amulet/scapeshift, chances are most people don't bother with any storm hate in their SB. Could be the perfect storm :3 for twiddle to shine.

As said, drop me a proper list and a place to buy it and I'll do it.
I'll even post here.
even if I don't wanna give money to (((them))). I also own like 90% of the deck irl, except pif and masterful.

This game is still a mess, isn't it? I mean damn, a card is banned in Modern I didn't even know about (Tibalt's Trickery). Good lord.

I've been gone since around when they announced a literal trannywalker, I think. I had finally had enough. Which is crazy because I fucking LIVED in this general.

What happened? Bring me up to speed.

>> No.77579251

They finally added a check for cascade that the spell being cascaded into actually costs less than the spell cascaded from, which was relevant because of the double faced card Valki/Tibalt.
Valki costs 2 mana, so would be the only 2 or less mana card in the cascade deck... but if you cascaded into it you could just cast Tibalt, who costs 7.

>> No.77579289

Oh lord. I didn't save any of the decklists, but they were something like

4x oko
3x valki/tibalt

4x violent outburst
4x ardent plea
4x other 3cmc cascade spell

4x mana monke (RIP LOL)
4x mana elf

4x force of will
4x force of neg
2-4x misdirection


'Cuz according to cascade rules with MDFCs, cascade procced on Valki but would RESOLVE as Tibalt. It was pure Yu-Gi-Oh.
