Collected company ban
Instant deck tech: four-color company (legacy)
Wizards of the Coast released a wide list of bans for various formats on February 15th, as you’ve probably learned by now. Since taking on all of them at once would be difficult, I’ll just concentrate on my favorite format, Modern, and tell you what I think will happen as a result of these bans.
Which decks were obliterated? What decks are still legal to play? Who will come out on top? Which ones should be avoided at all costs? When it comes to picking sideboard cards, what do you look for? Watch to find out.
I assume many Modern players would agree that before the bans, various Uro control decks were the best decks in the format. Ignoring the week of total chaos with Turbo Tibalt Cascade decks, I believe many Modern players would agree that before the bans, various Uro control decks were the best decks in the format. The hefty price tag attached to them kept their success in check for the most part. Three of the prohibited cards were commonly included in these decks: Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath, Mystic Sanctuary, and Field of the Dead. If three cards are withdrawn from a single deck, it must be doomed, right?

You’ll see anything from sluggish control decks looping Approach of the Second Sun for victory to all-out aggro Goblins and the combo side of the field, with everything and a Phyrexian Obliterator in between at the Mythic Invitational. Historic is now eligible for Ranked Play at any time on MTG Arena, so players can queue for special events by finishing in the top 1,200 Mythic rankings for the season, just as they do when playing Normal or Restricted.
With streamers and tournament organizers alike paying more attention to Historic, there’s no better time to catch up just in time for the Mythic Invitational (and the Historic Challenge next week). Let’s take a look at the format and some of the most common decks along the way.
The end result is a unique format. Historic is ideal if you enjoyed any of your previous Regular cards and want to play with them for a little longer. Historic also has something to try if you love mixing something new that you never thought was possible.

Today, I’m going to show you a deck that took me from mythic 88 percent to top #300 with an amazing 80% winrate. Field, on the other hand, was recently banned and was an incredibly favorable matchup, so it’s possible that it’ll dip a little.
This two-card synergy was popularized by Kvartek: with Regisaur on board, we can play Henge for just 2 mana, which is a huge benefit on its own and allows us to draw some cards to counter the dino’s discard clause. Lovestruck Beast is yet another 3-mana enabler for the Henge, lowering the cost to 4 instead of 2, while still being a strong card in its own right.
The Championship was held only two months after the Pioneer format was revealed, so the concept for the deck quickly spread; however, rather than using the weaker adventure kit as a shell, a Stompy version with more green appeared, with black serving only as a splash for Regisaur and removal; see a sample list here. Steel-Leaf Champion and Rhonas the Indomitable were among the more powerful 3-drops, while Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic provided early ramp, and perhaps most importantly, CoCo:
Uro finally banned – but is it enough? mtg news, standard
Magic has advanced dramatically in several ways in recent years, especially when it comes to bannings. It wasn’t long ago that we didn’t even bother talking about bannings on the podcast because they were so unusual in Standard. The same may be said for social media. It wasn’t worth the time and effort it took to type a tweet to demand bans. They just didn’t happen, no matter how safe or unhealthy Norm was. There were a few horror stories from the past, such as Tolarian Academy and Memory Jar in Urza’s block, Skullclamp Affinity in Mirrodin, and Jace, the Mind Sculptor after Worldwake was published, but they were few and far between. In fact, there were only two rounds of Regular bannings from 2000 to 2017, with Affinity being banned in 2004–2005 and Caw Blade being banned in 2011. Over the course of nearly two decades and countless sets, blocks, and Standard formats, only two decks were found to be so problematic that they were banned.
