I haven't played Standard/Draft regularly since Theros/Khans era, so I am heavily biased against small sets and wacky block structures just because you NEED to have a block structure and it's getting stale. I think overall it's a good move with way less potential for downside that the two set blocks + double rotation had.

I think it helps with people saying we aren't on Dominaria long enough, too. I'm not sure we would've gone back at all if Wizards didn't have the freedom to experiment with a super nostalgia set. And given the immensely positive fan reaction, I wouldn't be surprised if they're going to start looking at sets in development and make one set on Dominaria instead.
DPOblivion was far more determined than me.

Eldritch Moon was good.

Yeah, I guess this was fair. It just felt disjointed from SOI, but on its own merits it was solid.

Always dare to draft, especially when it's a new set.

3-0’d another RIX draft tonight. That’s 6 of the last 8 I’ve done. I think I’ve got this format down pretty good.

Just in time for it to go away!

I haven't MODO'd in forever... I guess I should get back on that wagon.

Doing the Two Headed Giant prerelease tonight with my friend, my first one since... Dragon's Maze, I think? He's going to force Yargle no matter what, should be fun times.
I'm just here to post something barely relevant, then fade back into the shadows. It's a tough job, but BKSheikah has to do it.

Going to my prerelease this afternoon. I have some reservations about the limited format of this set since it was initially revealed, but I’m still excited to try it out.
