Green Ramp was targeted by many early bans, which greatly reduced its power, and for pretty much this entire year, Pioneer has been the land of combo decks that are uninteractive, difficult to disrupt, and unfun to play against (the trifecta of complaints that always surround combo decks), and as a result a lot of its early advocates have run far away from it.

Reclamation has warped Standard to such an extent that the entire format has felt stale and tedious for months on end for much of the Standard player base, and it has been pointed out that Fires was banned for enabling too many absurd midgame turns and allowing you to cheat on mana to a ludicrous degree, which is precisely what Reclamation does (and often even better, especially in multiples!). ...

Next, even though Thassa’s Oracle has often been a win condition of choice for Underworld Breach decks, once the deck’s core combo engine is running, it can win in many ways. Teferi, Time Raveler is a card so irritating to play against, so warps the rules of Magic while in play, that it has inspired far more complaints than even much more powerful cards like Oko, Thief of Crowns. This three-mana planeswalker is so infamous that it has sullied the name of Teferi, a Magic character once so beloved that people clamoured for his return, to the point where many dreaded M21’s arrival since it was marketed as “the Teferi set” (undeservedly, since M21’s version, Teferi, Master of Time, is actually very well-balanced and designed). It’s worth noting that three of these cards would have rotated with Zendikar’s release in just a month and a half, but I am really excited to have the Standard environment uplifted during that period of time, and to be able to try some of the old cards out one last time before they leave, without their being pushed out of contention by the same busted decks we’ve grown to hate.

They discuss Amonkhet Remastered and the upcoming previews, the Rotation and Renewal for 2021, and a whole host of changes coming to MTG Arena!There’s a brief discussion on Jumpstart, Brawl, and some Quality of Life updates for the game as a whole. It’s not surprising that the same strategy that was good in Standard, of casting Expansion//Explosion, would be good in Historic, especially after they printed Explore in Jumpstart and injected a ton of redundancy into Historic for decks that wanted to play Growth Spiral. I do not think these words are enough to fully sum up the depths of my hatred for this card; it is by far the worst of the four and has actively reduced my enjoyment of Standard more than any other card in recent times. Now that Teferi is gone, I suspect that many previously unseen cards will pop out of the woodwork into viability, and I feel finally excited to play Standard again! Ultimately, how much fun players are having with the environment is the most important driving force behind B&R updates, and so we’re choosing to ban four cards to shake things up and push the competitive metagame away from combo decks.

Now, perhaps you can play more games, in what is supposed to be a for fun format, without having essentially mulliganed a bunch! As a singleton format, Brawl requires you to run more cards to meet the deck requirement, and often you would end up having to include cards that Teferi was absurdly good against, such as expensive artifacts and creatures that didn’t do anything the turn they came into play, counterspells, or cards like Emergent Ultimatum which flat out did not work, so you’d often be down 1-2 cards in your games against Teferi decks. In the past, we’ve given a one-week advanced notice for updates to the banned and restricted list. This set of changes is a deviation from our usual banned-list philosophy for Standard, and as such, we consider it an experiment.
