Commander Launch

Happy Monday MTG peeps,

To those who had an opportunity to attend the Commander Launch Party this weekend, chances are that you and everyone around you had a blast. Altough we could not quite make it to the party at our local store (OMG! Games in Barrie, Ontario), we did drop by latter on and produced this video for you.

Before we get to the vid however - we want you to make sure you stay on and check below for the very important DCI updates to the banned and restricted list (no surprise) as well as our contest announcement.


As expected, Wizards made the right move as we can see from WoTC Aaron's announcement (here) today on the mothership.
Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Stoneforge Mystic will both be banned in Standard effective July 1, 2011. Exception: The deck list for the "War of Attrition" Event Deck will be legal in Standard if kept completely intact. That deck, which went on sale on June 10, contains two copies of Stoneforge Mystic.
It is very true that the standard format was becoming stale due to the crazy number of caw-blade and its variants dominating almost all the top tournament spots. It does completely suck if you had spent a LOT of money and time practicing withthese decks. Altough we only had a big-daddy Jace in our hands for a day, we did pick up (very cheaply) a deckset of Mystics. Many suspected this ahead of time : Jace dropped from around $110 to $60 and Stoneforge dropped from $40 to $12. Altough we may be a bit biased, we do think Jace deserved the ban but killing Stoneforge Mystic is unwarranted - - what do you think ? Pipe in below.
