That's a good point. Maybe we'll see them every Core set then, since those are typically unexciting for established players.
DPOblivion was far more determined than me.

7 variants of red or red/black aggro in the top 8 of the PT

Ixalan standard after the energy bans was relatively balanced, if not a little bland.

Chainwhirler is definitely a little too good, though.

yeah 28 copies of a card in a top 8 seems well into banning territory

Scrubbed out of a Pauper 2K. Lost a die roll to burn and therefore lost; lost to slivers having nut draw both games.

Audibled into a Battlebond and oh my lord this format is nuts. My pick-up partner and I had degenerate decks -- I was UB Control/tempo, he was GW ramp with the guy that makes soldiers for 3 mana and f***ing Seedborn Muse.

I also saw @MajinZidane there but we didn't get to talk much, he left before I got to reminisce with him about B8 shenanigans.

I might try to go to a Battlebond event next week. Don’t generally care for 2HG, but I’m curious.

Also thinking about trying to start playing standard again. Won a couple hundred bucks at a casino last night so I have a bit of extra spending cash. Kind of hoping some of the UW stuff with drop in price after the less than stellar showing at the PT.

And here I was stupidly thinking the UW decks were good enough to keep RB in check.

Is chainwhirler really the card pushing those decks over the top? I'm skeptical.
