RDW wins an untested format.

That was probably the best mono red deck to see standard play. Crushed Sam Black right out of the finals at US Nats. :[

I was at nats that year joseki...it was quite the beating for sam black indeed.

It was a good mono-red to wield against Faeries and lots of the multicolor trash you face in BYOT2. I'm inclined to point out how ridiculously strong Urza-era decks are in the format but those take a lot of nowadays-unconventional piloting skill and frankly, most new players don't know all the decks legal from way back then so they tend towards picking up something they're familiar with.

Rule 1 of the untested format: Always play Faeries if you can.

Hardly untested. More like people who know shit about BYOT2 weren't playing. Tinker would steamroll this format.

"And Bitterblossom is every bit as broken as Necropotence."

Judicator: Bitterblossom isn't even good in Modern; Necropotence is banned. Bitterblossom was strong in that T2 due to how slow the format was. The way to punish it is to play one-drops. Have you ever wondered why Extended Faeries tended to eschew BB? And why the deck is barely played in Legacy? It's true that BB can grow to be a problem for Tinker though due to it randomly interacting well with Tangle Wire.

Bitterblossom isn't good in modern because it's banned.
by Eldariel on 2012-01-01 21:14 CET
Touché. It wasn't heavily played in the previous Extendeds, though.
by xJudicatorx on 2012-01-01 21:18 CET
I beg to differ.

Actually toward the end of that Extended season,

UW fae was better because stoneforge was more broken than BB.
