Proxy tournaments exist so that people can play even if they cannot afford the expensive cards, If you have to proxy cards that were just spoiled many people would not make the 15 proxy limit that is allowed for most proxy tournaments.

RE: When to start allowing a new set in proxy tournaments?
RE: What am I doing wrong?
Does it seem like you are losing a lot to thorn decks? You have 6 cards main that are completely dead to Shops and Eldrazi and the amount of cantrips you are playing can really be a liability. If you aren't going to play red for a card like Dack you should definitely play a Jace. Snapcaster mage is a great card but can really hurt when you are being taxed out of a game and can't cast two spells in a single turn. Just my two cents.
RE: [AKH] As Foretold
@Serracollector Casting it on turn one requires a lotus, a mana crypt or combinations of moxen and sol ring, this in no way makes cantrips free, you have to invest multiple cards to get this out and then you have to wait for it to come online when you would have been better off using that mana you used to play it to cast a cantrip and get yourself ahead in the game. It seems very likely like the games where this card is cast your opponent will just bury you in card advantage. It is much worse than Omniscience, "free" spells like Gush and Force are going to be nearly impossible to cast because you will be less inclined to hit all of your land drops now that you have all these free spells and you spent at least two cards to get this engine going and have less cards to pitch to force.
RE: New possible Hatebear printings to deal with the format?
We should not be asking for hatebears, we should be putting answers in colors like black and green. White is becoming much too strong as of late and we need to fix the color pie. We need cards that will encourage people to not just choose white because it has all the the answers.
