Death of Tribal

I'm against it.  Not that I think it should be around a lot, but I think that it works pretty well.  It works well in sets like Rise of the Eldrazi when it's all vs. one (and the one is the bad guy), and in sets like Lorwyn where it's all vs. all.  It doesn't work too well in Innistrad where it's all vs. one and the one is the good guy... and I understand that they couldn't give humans the tribal thing without giving it to the others, too, because tribal does have a lot to do with the set.

Link to Maro saying that Tribal is probably dead goes here...

It's about 55% of the way down under the heading Moan of the Unhallowed.

What do you think? Do you think Tribal deserves to die? Or are you like me and say once every fivish years they should bring it back in a tribal heavy block?

I'm with MaRo here -- he does say we might see weird one-off "tribal" instances (like the Eldrazi), so the door isn't entirely shut.  If there's a place where it works (I'm looking at you, dragons.  Or a lord-spell cycle) it's free to show...  but I have a love-hate with the mechanics of Tribal, especially if it moved out of Lorwyn, and the "hate" side is appeased by this announcement.

(A little explination with my problem with tribal: Flamekin Harbinger and Consuming Bonfire.  Why can the harbinger tutor up the bonfire and not Fireball?  why not Feral Lightning or Elemental Mastery which are as thematically appropiate if not more so?  Right now you could argue it's because the bonfire is their own native magic, but if a tribal instant - Elemental burn spell was printed in another block, you wouldn't have that excuse, and it's going to be a hard gap to bridge.)

I'm all for discussing this on the thread that already exists, personally.

I knew that I should have looked back farther than the first page of FSS... Thank-you Transcient Master.

Innistrad is 5 Teams or 1 VS 1 VS 1 VS 1 VS 1

Mafia Game Slots:

1. Open

2. Hundred Acres (Dead Town)

3. Open

4. Open

5. Open

6. Open

It's more like (1v1v1)v1.5
