In hindsight, what would you have changed about the Modern PTQ season?
I donâ€™t think banning Bloodbraid Elf was necessary at all, and they left the best combo deck unhurt even though they hit Seething Song.
I think they should have banned Bloodbraid Elf sooner.
I donâ€™t really like the banlist as it is. I think everyone should be able to play everything, except for a few cards. Skullclamp, obviously... mostly just ban cards that were banned in Standard.
I think Modern is fairly balancedâ€”thereâ€™s like thirty good decks! Iâ€™d like to see some cards unbanned to make a more dominant deck that people can gear towards. I think formats are better with two or three top-tier decks to aim for.
Itâ€™s not really a format that draws people inâ€”thereâ€™s nothing exciting about it when you ban all the good cards and itâ€™s just combo decks goldfishing against each other and fair decks trying to not die. Itâ€™s just boring... except for Birthing Pod. I love Birthing Pod.
I would say that they shouldâ€™ve completely revamped the banlistâ€”itâ€™s not even close to correct right now.
