Probable Mystical Teachings fill-in: Jace, the Mind Sculptor (I know; surprise, surprise).
It is, in fact, still pretty cool without it.

To be fair, none of us actually expected that Extended would be like that. And we certainly didn't say that this summer. And we were not shouted down for having the temerity to claim such nonsense.
In particular Sower of Temptation jumps up in value by a gigantic number of zeroes.
It is, in fact, still last year's Standard without it.There isn't a single deck reviewed that wasn't a deck in recent Standard. I recognized all of them. Sure some had Tarmogoyf or Logic Knot, but they are essentially the same decks.Extended doesn't feel like a completely different format from Standard, I don't think.
While I don't think they explicitly said so up front, this was entirely their intention.
Remember how Magic got a huge influx of players around Shards of Alara? Well they were about to face their first rotation. Old Extended meant picking up 4 blocks behind them, but post-rotation Standard excluded half their collection. So New Extended was created specifically to let their old Standard decks be playable for longer.
I have no idea if it worked or not. Online it doesn't seem that way, but stores might have a better sense of who their players are and what they're looking to do.
