We thought it’d never happen… ok, that’s not true. We thought it’d take a while… ok, actually, a lot of us were expecting Omnath to get banned today… AND IT DID! Cheetofingers has been unceremoniously ejected from Standard, Historic and Brawl. Also leaving Standard are Lucky Clover, as well as another card that both Covertgoblue and Arjuna are a little surprised to see leaving Standard – Escape To The Wilds. Lots to discuss and unpack here about what this means for Standard, and which decks are going to be top of the meta moving forward.
Also, we had Omnath banned in Historic, and an unforseen unsuspending of Burning Tree Emissary. Gruul’s back on the menu! We both like all of these announcements very much, and are predicting the Arena metagames to be approaching a period of relative balance and, dare we say it… fun.
