Let me tell you that if Dredge, storm or Workshops just had one tourney with the same kinda results that gush has been putting up, everyone would be clamoring for emergency restrictions, let alone enduring almost a year of dominance.
Yes you can say that at some short periods gush decks were lower but that's only because of some new tech introduced to beat them. But each time this happens, look at the results a few week later where as gush decks adapt they take hold of the format again.
ONLY 22%? isn't that around the number where workshop got two cards axed?
How can I be biased when I am fond of Gush and mentor yet pleading against it ? Furthermore how does me taking the defense of Thorn decks (which I personally don't like for the record) shows any bias?
I did not present any specific data because I assumed most people reading me have been keeping up with Chubbyrains and diophans metagame breakdowns, my point being that it is ridiculous that almost a year after we're still seeing the same kind of ridiculous numbers from gush mentor.
Advancing that I didn't point to specific data is kind of a hypocritical argument on your part by the way, because as I am sure you know (since you have seen the data) it shows gush being consistently between 30 and 40% of the metagame (with outliers in the 20s and up to 60).
What facts did I make up? because I thought you said I wasn't using any facts, so which is it? You also didn't debunk me at all instead choosing to ignore what I was saying and attempting to push your own narrative backed by outliers in the available data, as you've done with other people previously like Chubbyrain.
Point taken about the VSL I'll give you that.
But please refrain from using condescending personal attacks such as " You have no idea what you're talking about" and "stop whining" or attacking the terminologies I use (English is not my first language FYI). I also wouldn't feel comfortable doing so in your position seeing as you are much easier to attack on the personal front than I.
Please listen to what I said instead of jumping on your high horse and attacking every statement I make as If you were in a courtroom because you are not. It's also extremely "fluffy", since most people on these boards that are passionate and educated about vintage agree that gush is either a problem or ubiquitous.
