Looking Back to Look Forward, or, A Pun
This last week saw the release of Modern Masters 2017. Concerns of where the Modern format is headed got me thinking back, as I often do, to my early days of playing Magic, starting with Ice Age then on through Saga block. I played mono-black aggro and mono-blue control in Extended format through droves of ProsBloom and Tolarian Academy decks that both managed to fill your hand to hasten your doom. We didn't know what format shakeups lay before us. And leaving you now without directly finishing that thought, I ask myself as I did then, "What's this heavy-handed meta for?"
