A degenerate combo deck (eggs) won the pro tour, the highest level of competition in magic. The whole point of the banlist is to prevent degenerate combo decks from beating players who win fairly. Therefore, I propose that the following items be added to the banlist:
sleight of hand
Eggs isn't that hard to beat...it won cuz no one was expecting it or had sb options for it. Sure they dig fast and furious... But that doesn't mean you need to ban them...
Obviously you have never played with an "eggs" deck. It is a very hard combo deck to pilot (way harder than storm) and can easily be hated out. The reason Cifka won the pro-tour with it was that he made a brilliant prediction of the meta-game (and he's a master chess player on top of that). Just because a deck won one tournament isn't reason enough to call for banning cards and quite frankly I would be shocked if another "eggs" deck won another tournament this season.
Oh hey it's Felis again. I think it's a new Zokorad acct.
Yeah, eggs is SUCH a hard deck to pilot. You play artifacts and sacrifice them and cast second sunrise.
You know, considering the kind of threads you make, OP, I think you ought to change your avatar. It doesn't really suit you.
I'm glad you agree that it's like spanish inquisition, another overpowered combo deck that led to changes in the B&R list, specifically the restriction of burning wish.
Yeah, but transmuting for 3 at instant speed is just ugly. Your point about sideboard hate is a good one -eggs relied entirely on the fact that the tech of choice didn't interact with it- but the way you said it, in a troll thread no less, left you wide open to a friendly jab.
