I realize I posted last week's article in Strategy. Whoopsie.
Little late, I'm on vacation sue me.
Flash + 4 g probe+ 4 street w.+ new mullingan= gg turn 1 ......80% covered (force w...misdirection..pact...veil)
It's funny because so many people respond to this idea with some deck they can't conceive of being beatable: Flash, Trini MUD, BDEV Delver, Tinker Combo, Channel Mirror etc. People have already been playing these decks, none of them is unbeatable.
This is a fun format where all the spells matter. It's exciting and engaging and there are plenty of decks to invent or reinvent. Don't knock it till you've tried it.
Yeah I mean, what Nat says here is true. People have been actually playing games with these decks either via Cockatrice or MTGO. This is being figured out, and it sounds like everything is pretty on par which is really cool.
I considered that possibility, but I also wrote off that possibility because the timeframe of the announcement made that seem rather unlikely. It was a reactionary measure and it did not feel realistic to expect them to make an unrestriction.
In fact, I kind of think that we may never see another unrestriction based on how they are now approaching announcing BnR updates. Ad hoc announcements of announcements does not bode well for unbanning/unrestricting of cards at all.
Furthermore, I don't have any particular bias for any one deck (unless you count decks that include the card Risen Reef and then well let me tell you all about that), let alone PO. It really wouldn't bother me if they actually restricted it, but a lot of the data I look at really suggests that it doesn't need to be.
