Update: Extended Format
This is brand new and I've got to say that I'm thoroughly disappointed:
The bad news:
Extended has been a long time favorite format of mine. Even after they changed the rotation to be every seven years, that was still plenty to work with. Extended has been my go to format for several years now whether it be for tournaments or casual play. Now with most sets that I actually own being discarded by the format, I find it less likely I could actually enjoy it. Even worse is that the Ravnica block gets taken out because of this (best block ever). I can already see tribal decklists of Faeries, Goblins, and Elves running rampant. Tis a shame.
The good news:
There is rumor of a NEW format that Wizards of the Coast will be releasing. Supposedly this one will rotate even slower than Extended did and have a well thought out banned and restricted list to prevent certain deck types from being the only viable option. The only issue is, this is merely rumor. This is the equivalent of daydreaming right now.
This is Kylak signing out.
