Magic Online Pauper
Empty the Warrens, Grapeshot, and Invigorate are banned.


This makes me EXTREMELY happy. You have no idea.

Well...Wizards proves they are ****ing stupid again. Not only do they not unban stuff that should be unbanned, they ban more fun cards from Modern.

I just got into modern too since I always enjoyed playing with Bloodbraid elf, since I don't think Jund is Jund without Bloodbraid elf. I guess Huntmaster can be played in her place, but that's just stupid. Really not seeing much reason to play Modern....again.

So Seething Song bites the dust and my chances of remotely enjoying GP Brisbane along with it.

welp there goes my entire trade binder. i just bought in to become independent from my friend's collection and spent most of my assets starting work on storm. now that it's useless i have nothing again. totally arbitrary, no predictability, and they're also just wrong in their warrants--electromancer and pyromancer ascension actually make that deck consistent. such a bad banning. also bloodbraid elf ban doesn't kill jund, it just turns it into a very permutable deck until it gets perfected again

Why use useless modo stats? I'm pretty sure there is nowhere near 11% of players playing storm IRL. What I am certain of is storm wont work without seething song

I do wonder if Jund will stay around. It's true the deck is still good without Bloodbraid Elf (which can be replaced with Huntmaster of the Fells--it's weaker, but fulfills the same general role). However, let's look at the cards in Jund. Most of them are Black, Green, or a combination of the two. The biggest reason to have Red in the deck is to play Bloodbraid Elf, and that's gone. Huntmaster is decent, but not as much of a pull. So I think players will start looking at other color options for the deck and we might see some Junk or BUG lists start to crop up.

Bloodbraid doesn't even really seem like the reason Jund wins, she's just really good and provides card advantage, but that doesn't matter. Liliana and discard is the reason Jund can win against a lot of the other decks.

Regardless Bloodbraid Elf was my favorite card in the deck, she is fun to play and has awesome artwork. I just spent a bunch of money on finishing a goyf set and getting Shamans and they do this ****.
