Basketball evolved in a good way for my tastes.

Just corrected that for you in a way that sums up all this discussion.
Also, it is still literally the same game, it's still called Basketball, and no one will ever argue it's not (literally).
By the way, just got my Sekiro platinum last night. You should try it, it's awesome.

@wfain Basketball didn't have 3-point shots when it was created. Is it not the same game? I don't get this at all.

Saying this about Magic is just absurd - just take games like Gwent, that actually had complete reboots, and that actually feel like different things.

Anyway, I just thing disliking the game is OK, but it's not the game's fault. It's not like we're playing a game without expansions like...... Well.... Chess.

Change in Magic's nature since day 1.

@fsecco I mean, it literally not the same game, but sure, there is was nostalgia involved. The game doesn't have really any nostalgia feel for me anymore since its evolved so far.

@vaughnbros This is just nostalgia speaking.

It's not the game's or the format's fault. Game's fine, Arena is pretty great overall and there are a lot of formats to go to or proxy events to play.
It's just you guys that are burnt out by it and maybe have outgrown it. It's OK. Kinda sucks but it's a part of life. There are other formats and/or other games/activities to do out there. I've been jamming Commander, board games and Sekiro for a change, but loving how Magic looks too. Just find your place. 🙂

@blindtherapy we played a lot of Delve spells in decks that didn't use the graveyard other than that. Also, extra DTT, Cruise would make excellent FoW fodder. I don't know if this reasoning works with Breach. The cards in your graveyard aren't just numbers, you need good stuff there too.

@vaughnbros that's where I don't think I agree. Casting DTT makes Breach worse by 2 castings. So imagine you have 7 cards in our GY where 1 is Ancestral. You can cast it twice off Breach or 0 times if you find Breach with DTT.
The real question is: would you rather resolve DTT now for UU or 2 Ancestrals later for 1RUU?

I thought I'd like it but you just treat it like a sphere and play Oko on turn 4 to make it irrelevant.

@vaughnbros The thing I find is the biggest difference between this and Will is that you really can't play delve spells in a deck with this, or it becomes irrelevant.
