EDIT: Apologies for mishearing such an embarrassing difference. The idea of unrestricted Will just got my heart all aflutter. But the discussion is Much the same. Thanks to those of you who pointed out the error.
So I thought I'd extract this idea from the midst of the SMIP 65 great engine semantics debate and stick it here for those who might know better!
After all, there's Nothing more exciting about restrictions than navel gazing about what might get Unrestricted NEXT time.
Stephen and Kevin briefly alighted on it in their discussion of last week's announcement, BUT they briefly, ever so softly, said that the DCI should consider unrestricting some of the most unrestrictable cards like Windfall and Yawgmoth's BARGAIN. Though fine. Why not Will for the sake of juicy gossip?
Now, I never no never didn't play in no 4x Yawgwill (EDIT: or Yawgain) environment. And. Being only a surly potzer, I can only speculate, but, the idea that given the dominance of mentor and shops, that having unrestricted yawg and an extra few draw sevens(ish) is a safe move, would seem fair game for opining.
I guess that this would yield an uptick in combo, which for now is putting up fairly ho hum results. But would it really? If all of a sudden there were 4 Will (EDIT: or hey, Bargain!) ritual decks available, would people actually play it? I run Will in PO Storm, but frequently I feel it is more out of feelz than actual strategy.
If these unrestrictions would actually be safe, would the VSL folks be willing to start saying this loudly so that in a few more months we could maybe see a change, since this seems to be a metric WotC looks at closely?
Anyhoo. I imagine this could be potentially polarizing so fair game to anyone who responds "You FOOL! YOU BLIND FOOL! COMBO IS WHY WE CANT HAVE NICE THINGS!"
However, is this something the community thinks could happen?
