Cook’s Kitchen: B&R Update – January 2013

Cook’s Kitchen – B&R Update: January 2013

Banned and Restricted Update

There it is! A few changes, Bloodbraid Elf and Seething Song are banned in Modern as well as Grapeshot, Empty the Warrens, and Invigorate in Online Pauper. Well, to be perfectly honest, I don’t care that the storm pair or Invigorate are banned in Online Pauper. I can’t play on Modo anyway! But that’s not the point.

Tales of the Squire- Modern Gentlemen

 

by Dan Rae

Here are the facts people- Modern exists as a format and it actually does not suck, like a lot of people say.  Modern at the moment may not be the most played form at but it is still fairly new in the Magical world.  When Modern came out Wizards banned cards that they felt were going to be too good, and tried to avoid the possibility of the format just being all the best Standard decks.  In order to do that they banned cards like Bitterblossom, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, and Stoneforge Mystic.  These bannings may have been a bit premature, but hey, it happened.
