Ban season is coming up!

treasure cruise banner

Fate Reforged is almost upon us, and soon the new B&R announcement will be revealed. Here’s what I think will happen:

Standard:treasurecruise.full
No changes. (still shit)

Modern:
Jeskai Ascendancy is banned.
Treasure Cruise is banned.
Dig Through Time is banned.

Legacy:
Treasure Cruise is banned.

Vintage:
No changes.

Jeskai combo breaks the “turn three rule” of Modern, and the delve spells have been tearing up Modern and Legacy for quite some time. They probably need to go, although it’s a bit sad that the only real Aggro deck in Legacy (UR Delver) will be back to tier two town.

What do you think will happen on Monday? Leave a comment below!

    This is what I think.

    Modern:
    Jeskai Ascendancy is banned
    Bloodbarid Elf is unbanned

    Legacy:
    No changes

    I would like to see Cloudpost in there as a modern unban, but it is almost as unlikely to happened as a Sword of the Meek unban. They create decks that some decks have a horrible match-up against.

    Although Treasure Cruise is powerful in modern, it’s not too powerful. That and from the looks on what Wizards is printing, they want to push U(W)R Delver.

    While in legacy, there is no doubt its power level is very high (much higher than modern). The thing is, the card encourages playing a slower and more grindy game. Maybe pushing the meta to be a bit slower. Legacy doesn’t really need to be a faster format.

    While the bad thing is: since it’s power lever is so high, it increases the variance in the deck (aka. not drawing vs. drawing the stupid card).

    Wonder when people will start playing burning wish to maximise their cruises? 😉

    Im always hoping for some sweet unbanns for Legacy, but they never come.
    I say, cut the cruise in ALL formats, Im so sick of the card by now. It is EVERYWHERE!

    Bt i think it will still be in for Legacy a while.

    I actually hope Treasure Cruise won’t get banned. Sure, I’m not playing legacy anymore but I like the decklists that’s been showing up thanks to the card. U/R delver for the win!

    I’m curious why jeskai ascendancy should be banned for being fast when it’s an unconsistent deck which tends to be easily disrupted. It’s not even that popular atm. Bloodbraid elf had a huge leap in price on mtgstocks (site which shows current price trends etc) so maybe it will be unbanned. Too young player to know it but I doubt it would it would be as good as it once was if unbanned.
