Can we get a DTB (or whatever) sub?

That'd be nice in terms of discussions' sake

I was surprised that wasn't put up, actually.  However, I don't think it's going to be necessary until we get results from the upcoming pro tour and have a better idea of what the decks to beat are going to end up being.  In the mean time, feel free to start making threads for such good decks and we'll be able to move them once we do have our results.
Come check out my friend's youtube channel where he gives bad movies what's coming to them!

However, I don't think it's going to be necessary until we get results from the upcoming pro tour and have a better idea of what the decks to beat are going to end up being.

This was a good deal of my reasoning, too. With no major tournament results at all, arguing about which decks are which tier probably isn't going to be very productive, especially when this is a completely new forum. Building a community essentially from scratch in a blank forum is difficult enough without further segregating the audience, so better to avoid that argument entirely.

Once we have actually some results to work with and a significant enough audience to make a split worthwhile, then we can create an additional forum.

Come join me at No Goblins Allowed


Because frankly, being here depresses me these days.

Right -- I just figured since the PT is just around the corner we should make sure that is up and running ASAP

I hope this keeps people from continuing to gripe about the ban-list. I see control, aggro, burn, combo, and a lot of hybrid lists. This is also a meta in which very few cards overlap into other archetypes. BAN LIGHTNING BOLT.

Photobucket
But there's practically no blue on that list, you realize. We need mental misstep! (also Jace)

That's plenty of blue. Also, I don't mind green and red finally having some meta dominance in a format.

Photobucket
At least I know what to Meta for now. U/W post it is.
Photobucket
Point taken, but I was thinking more along the lines of straight U control or aggro/control. Modern is overly combo-dominant right now, IMO.
