Stop supporting eternal formats.

Bring back Extended in place of Modern and instead of the Frontier format.

Well, anybody with a brain knows frontier is a total joke

A frontier deck costs 500$. So it's like 1/2 the cost of modern. Wait until it gets actual demand. In other words, frontier is a joke if pitched as a financial solution to modern. The biggest benificiaries of the format are 2+ year standard players. It's no small wonder that they're the biggest advocates.

Then of course, we just saw this shit with tiny leaders. It's a total scam to sell worthless cards traceable directly back to one store (in this case, Hareruya) and their own writers and social media personalities.

WOTC would have to abandon the lucrative modern masters line and offer anybody who purchased those products a very awkward apology

I hear people argue that this is how modern started. Lol, no. People didn't make up a format then have WOTC adopt it directly. Gavin Verhey spearheaded overextended, or extended going back to masques block, as a solution to low extended tournament attendance. Modern is a far cry from overextended. Expecting WOTC to do exactly what you want every single time is ridiculous. PS, they hired Gavin after this.

God I hope the frontier meme dies soon. I would say the frontier format, but nobody is actually playing it. Just discussions. People are fucking nuts.

Legacy something something...Eternal Masters something something...

And lucrative my eye. MM2015 is not original Modern Masters, and shit is only going to get worse.

I had to look up why Emrakul was getting banned. That deck looks fun.
