unbanning time spiral might just be worse. That card is literally GG if cast in the right deck.

Just makes force of will THAT much more powerful. Don't like it at all.

I personally want them to unban Mystical Tutor, that card was hardly broken enough to be banworthy.

I'd much prefer them ban Forest but Island is a close second Razz

not saying ur wrong nico, but i thought someone had made a statement about how survivals winning percentages were thru the roof. even if massive players play it, no assurance they will all do well enough that its winning percentage it higher than fae or jund ever was. i forget the persons name and where i read it, but im pretty sure i saw that somewhere.

This could be a move to stop something before the next set comes out. Though that has never happened before.

Ok.
You know what,
how is four mana for three (sometimes four) vengevines in your graveyard fair?
how?
really?
Oh it doesnt dominate the meta. woopie.
IT BREAKS THE FREAKING GAME.
With a survival in play and protected by a little bit of countering,
any creature in hand wins you the game.

Yep, thats not oped at all.
Courtesy of tird_ape's first place finish here:

3 Basking Rootwalla
1 Bayou
4 Brainstorm
2 Daze
4 Force of Will
2 Horizon Canopy
2 Intuition
4 Misty Rainforest
4 Noble Hierarch
1 Qasali Pridemage
2 Savannah
3 Spell Pierce
4 Survival of the Fittest
4 Swords to Plowshares
4 Tropical Island
4 Vengevine
1 Waterfront Bouncer
3 Wild Mongrel
4 Windswept Heath
1 Wonder

I haven't played around with this deck a lot, but turn 3-4 wins are pretty consistent in my playtesting.

The REAL fun is the realization that a bunch of people tested (more or less) that same exact list at R&D, and decided it was fair.

In reality, it's Vengevine that makes the deck broken, not Survival. They prob just don't want to admit they fudged that one up with vengevine OR everyone is whining too damn much. I certainly wouldn't mind them banning vengevine in legacy.
