Oh wow. He made a mistake. Big deal, get over it.

Uhm, he's discrediting the winner based on circumstential evidence and indices that are impossible to defend one self against.

If someone tells that person x is beating his wife, even if he dont, it will stick - falsely - with a big group of people even if its not true and those kind of claims are impossible to defend against. Negative proof of evidence is nonsense.

Im happy about this, and this is coming from someone who owns x4 shops.

I'm happy if were able to see more gush decks that is not particually targeted against shops (UR, UWR mentor), preferable 4c.
Also i hope we'll see some more gifts and TFK fueled decks.

I suppose this will mean there will be more welders / smokestack / null rods, which is a good thing.

@DeaTh-ShiNoBi said:

This B&R announcement confirms exactly what many feared: the DCI does not use real data to support their decisions. They merely listen to the grumblings of the loudest complainers to guide their hand. The assertion that the format was unbalanced in the first place is incredibly questionable when you consider that the majority of experts posting here wanted no changes. I fear what is to come if the DCI insists on policing a format they don't know anything about.

What are you talking about? Data on Modo exists and the dominance of workshops are shown in this data.
So my questions to you

  1. what is real data?
  2. Is MODO not real data?

You come off as a conspiracy theory kind of guy. And for the record, it's the illuminati that are pulling their wizards R&D strings.

Not really any problem, but rather the pleasant colours and having a border which clearly marks whats written makes it much easier on the eyes.

Dont like doube masticore / squees and possible a 3rd wurmcoil.
I think myr battlesphere would be good in here.
Tangle wire is a great TNT card as well.

Not sure if playing white is game, but i could see one-ofs containment priest (SB) and ethersworn cannonist.

Maybe blood moon / magus of the moon?

I really like the addition of fleetwheel crushers, but was surprised that no one played the copter.
The second list looks more powerful and i like the way that both decks has turned out. I thought the decks would go more towards the traditional stax-route.

So happy. I'll finally buy one and play 5c stax and gush-storm.
