Default B/R Announcement - Standard Ban!

Week ahead of schedule, think it's for a Standard ban of Emrakul or Marvel?

Default Re: B/R Announcement - Standard Ban?

I suspect that is the reason it was moved up and an announcement made preceding the actual announcement.

I think it's most likely an Emrakul ban for Standard that pushed the announcement up

I also would not be surprised to see some large changes to Modern (several unbans, possibly several bans)

Only possible change for Legacy remains something Miracles related, SDT being the most likely culprit

I also wonder if they'll ban this Felidar thing before it gets the chance to be combo'd with Saheeli. Pre-emptive Standard ban would be pretty epic...

I absolutely do not think they will do that. If they do, they have really made a major error and after this Legacy GP no stream, it would be a PR nightmare for them

I hope they ban those janky go-infinite combo pieces from the new set. There's that new fungusaur that gets bigger from activated abilities, right?

They have to have tested and double tested all these, right?

Here's an article with some more crazy stuff.

yeah like I said, a PR nightmare. It's bad enough if they have to ban something from Standard (Emrakul or Marvel) but to pre-emptively ban a card from a new set in Standard, before it even comes out shows an alarming lack of foresight from R&D

Boom. Glad I never bought Copters. Wonder if Colossus or Panharmonicon can be a deck now?
