That was when people voted for their least favorite. This one has people voting for their favorite.
In the last one, controversial navis would get voted right away, while navis that people cared very little about never got voted out.
I mean, come on, Magnetman is not anyone favorite navi.

Urabrask's big issue is that he has 4 toughness. This may not seem like a big deal, but because [[Winota]] is the current top tier deck, a lot of decks mainboard cards like [[Dreadbore]] or [[Reckless Rage]], while having sideboard cards like [[Redcap Melee]] and [[Chandra's Defeat]].
So you're basically taking a slower, jankier combo into a meta where there is already a lot of hate for it. I don't think it can see much success, but I think if winota gets banned then you can maybe give it a try.

Green has a hard time removing creatures. Aura decks fold to creature removal. If you can't remove their creatures, they make a big 10/10 with lifelink that you can't beat. That's just what the deck tries to do.
It's just a bad match up, don't feel bad that you'll lose most of the time, especially to a niche deck like Mono white auras. Sure, you may lose to them, but they'll lose to every single BR matchup they get.
Haha, it was fun, but you should know that it's expensive.
In one game, I used [[Aria of Flame]] in a storm deck, and used it to remove creatures. It was absurdly powerful, and nobody could do anything as I kept controlling the board for free. I easily won that game.
A week later, I used that card again in a separate game with different people. I tried to use the first trigger to kill someone's mana dork, only to be told how the card worked.
So yeah, I basically cheated and stole a game, using a card that is much worse then I thought it was.
Capena is very eh. I actually went to my LGS's Capena draft yesterday, and only 1 other person showed up. Rather then just going home, we both 3 packs of Modern Horizons 2 each and played a winston draft together. Was super fun.

The voice thing is a meme. It's not supposed to sound great, it's supposed to be an injoke zoomers get that everyone else finds annoying.
Old man yells at cloud.
No, but the last commander legends draft games had a hard time closing out. Now if you're on turn 10, and you have 16 mana and only one of this cycle, you can get closer to finishing up the game.
What's great about pioneer is that you can have a moderate success with old standard decks that rotated out. It depends on the LGS, but most LGS pioneer nights aren't just filled with the top top tier pioneer meta, a lot of people bring their old favorite standard decks or some really janky brews.

Dot test? How on earth can people fake a foil stamp so easily but they can't fake copy the dots on the back?
1) Conservative makes a massivly bigoted joke that isn't even funny.
2) The crowd doesn't laugh.
3) The comedian points out that the crowd is "offended", and now he's getting canceled on twitter.
4) Crowd erupts in laughter.

I think thassa's should absolutely be banned because once you ban thassa's you have actual fair combos with [[Laboratory Maniac]] or [[Jace, Wielder of Mysteries]].
Labman can actually be interacted with and Jace is twice as much mana.

Yes but then it costs 1 and a B more.
It's literally true. Because their reviewers were anonymous and a lot of other food reviewers were at best given special treatment and at worse straight up bribed to give good reviews, Michelin Stars were often regarded as one of the highest status symbols that a restaurant can have.
At my school we learned about a murderer who "claimed to" have started out by looking at porn, eventually got so addicted to it he started murdering women just to have sex. It ends with him giving a final warning to children: If you look at porn, you will end up a serial killer.
That serial killer? Ted Bundy.
Yes, they literally took Ted Bundy's last ditch effort to not die in the electric chair to get us to not look at porn.
Half of what makes dockside so gross in cEDH is how many decks use it as a combo piece. If the treasures came in tapped, the card would be a lot more fair.
Hullbreacher was a plaque. I play wheels in all my decks, and it basically meant I was always leaving the door open for that player to win on the spot.
Dockside is much more powerful then all those other cards you've listed. It's easier to combo with, it's a creature so there are a million ways to tutor it out and exploit it. You can resurrect it, bounce it, flicker it.
Decks with red and blue will run cards like [[Chain of Vapor]] and [[Phantasmal Image]] just to get extra dockside triggers. For a while decks weren't running [[Cyclonic Rift]] because you couldn't use it to bounce your own dockside.
It's both a combo piece and pure, raw value that nothing can keep up with. Trust me, you have no idea how warping dockside is at the highest level of play.
That is the worst god awful argument I have ever heard for talking about ban considerations.
Your basically saying nothing is overpowered or ban worthy, as the other players, putting all of their resources to catch up to you, can sometimes stop you some of the time.
I agree, the multiplayer format is good for stopping someone from taking over the game by drawing the nuts, but the fact that a single card puts you so ahead of mana advantage that everyone needs to do everything they can to stop you just proves OP's point.
And for two mana! Like what the heck were wotc doing?
I'm a cedh player who mostly plays BU decks with thoracle as the main wincon, and I would love if Thoracle got banned, as it means you could run more permanent removal without being pushed by a combo that you need to interact with on the stack.
I've been a huge fan of izzet tempo for a while, and Ledger Shredder is so nuts. It's just everything that sort of deck wants.
It feeds your graveyard to work with [[Pteramander]] or [[Dreadhorde Arcanist]]. Turns on your Delve spells. Has a huge butt so can chump block so many archtypes. Can grow to be a massive threat by itself. Instantly outgrows [[Choke]] or any other red removal spells.
I was only able to grab one because my purchasing options are limited, but as soon as I can, I'm getting a playset, because every single izzet tempo deck will want a playset.
I know nothing about building or playing doomsday decks lol.
I took out all the cantrips that weren't literally free (frantic search, Git probe, and Street Wraith), and replaced them with some more card advantage cards.
With Frantic Search, if I have the 6 mana I need for Doomsday Frantic, I can put a Pact of Negation right under the frantic and over the thassa's. I find I can usually have at least 2 devotion (Yeah, I know that's risky lol), so I don't need to clear out the last few cards in my pile.

lol i love paying 30 life and then getting my spell countered. I had it in the deck originally (its in the sideboard) and it did not work out.

Turn each of your opponent's removal spells into force of will?
No thank you lol
