Quick Question: Where has all the Tribal gone?
Where has all the Tribal gone?
Punishing Jund annihilated all the creature matchups, making this a combo format right now. Weâ€™ll see the Tribal decks start to trickle in in the coming months.
I donâ€™t think Tribal is very good to begin with. Itâ€™s worse than the combo decks and the control decks manning Jace, the Mind Sculptor.
Tribal decks are traditionally bad against Combo.
Engineered Plague saw a big rise in sideboard play, but itâ€™s good to note that Elves has put up some solid finishes in recent weeks.
The Tribal decks are sort of draw dependent, and I think that the dominance of the Miracles decks has pushed them out. Specifically, Merfolk has a lot of trouble now that Supreme Verdict and Terminus are around and forced them out of the metagame.
Combo is happening, thatâ€™s whatâ€™s happening! Do you want me to Tell youâ€¦ or Show you?
I donâ€™t know! Iâ€™d like to see more Tribal. I started getting into Magic seriously around Onslaught, so Tribal is in my blood. Iâ€™d like to see more Tribal decks.
I think they were just outclassed. Max Tietze won an Invitational with Goblins once, but itâ€™s so draw dependent. The Miracle deck has Terminus and Counter-Top. It couldnâ€™t stay on top.
