@ajfirecracker @BazaarOfBaghdad @Thewhitedragon69 Yes. I don't care at all about deck or archetype or card diversity. My ideal format is literally 75 card Delver mirrors. I am not joking.
But see I recognize I don't get to legislate B&R policy to fit my subjective ideals any more than you do. And unlike other people, I'm not arguing we change Vintage to fit my ideal format. The reason we use evidence like tournament results to make these decisions is because otherwise we're just arguing aesthetics.
And we can argue aesthetics all we want, but I think it's important for people to acknowledge that's exactly what they are doing, and that evidence doesn't justify hitting Monastery Mentor, Gush, Mental Misstep, Preordain, or Gitaxian Probe. There's a critical difference between something actually being oppressive and people saying it's oppressive. Calling a card too good does not make it so. Now, as I've said before, personally I wouldn't mind Mentor's restriction, but I also wouldn't mind if the format was 75 card Delver mirrors. And, importantly, I acknowledge no data exists to support changing the format in either of those ways.
If you're still not getting it, I would ask you to consider why you're fine with Oath of Druids being legal and yet you want to restrict Monastery Mentor. You have to have multiple sideboard cards to beat Oath, and yet everyone does it without complaining. Why are you fine being 0% against Dredge game 1 and dedicating seven or eight sideboard cards to the matchup? If you had even three sideboard cards dedicated to beating Mentor decks, you could beat Mentor decks. If Oath of Druids had been printed in Fate Reforged and Monastery Mentor had been printed in Exodus, everyone would be calling for Oath's restriction right now and hardly anyone would be playing Monastery Mentor.
It seems to me from this diversion in the thread that people not only want Monastery Mentor or assorted cards restricted, they also refuse to accept that such restrictions would be based only on aesthetic preference. I'm not asking you to change your mind, just to acknowledge the subjectivity of your position, and that all data we have support either keeping the status quo or restricting something from Workshops.
@Thewhitedragon69 You clearly don't understand my point. Modern doesn't have any more diversity than Vintage. There are a finite number of archetypes in Magic, and both formats have all of them. You don't get bonus points for having twenty aggro decks instead of one. That's false diversity. Like you said, you like to choose between one of 50 decks. That's why you play Modern. As I said before, we have different formats for a reason.
