I'm just saying if you +1 starting hand size to half the decks in the format that the other half start looking like poor options to play. Yes, obviously the +1 card can't be trash (people playing 3/2 vigilance dude in a 0 creature deck), but if it's playable the advantage is huge and huge consistently.
Not totally vintage relevant, but it also really bothers me that Gyruda is one of like 3 cards that works through Leyline of the Void for no apparent reason.
I think this printing will further magnify the schism between MTGO and paper and elite players and casual.
Lurrus games can be very deep and nuanced and engaging battles of attrition for elite players. They can also be mind-numbingly repetitive for casuals.
We're right back in the same conundrum that Mentor caused. Each individual game can be deep and awesome, but from an aerial view the format looks horrible. People quit then. They didn't come back. I know that's not a good reason to make decisions from, but it's definitely relevant.
This is a good point. I imagine Lurrus vs. Lurrus to be a really cool matchup and incredibly skill intensive, maybe some of the best Magic you could ever possibly play, but sooo damn polarizing that I'm forced to say "fuck that". I'd like to hurl the companion mechanic in a sack, and hurl that sack in a river, and hurl that river into space.
