Ok, figure we can try and get the MtG forums going a bit with a fun discussion for anyone who plays here. In standard right now, what do you think the next set of bans will be? Since 4x of Drown in the Loch and 4x Bonecrusher Giant are run in 15 out of the top 20 decks I see those as pretty obvious candidates for the ban bat. Anyone else have any thoughts? As someone who love Dimir I'll be sad to see that Drown in the Loch go but with so many ways to fill an opponents graveyard early in the game it's too damned powerful. Counter that big spell or spot remove any creature. The Bonecrusher Giant is stat wise overstated before you have the 2 damage adventure. He hurts your face to remove and he's tough to trade out on curve. If you run red you run 4x of him, no matter what deck. Any time a card stops being optional it's headed for a ban.
No really OP cards out there currently imo. Dimir Rogues is the most annoying deck right now, not because the deck is super strong but because you can run into it five times in a row. Also I don't like the archetype but thats just me probably. Drown in the Loch would be me favorite for a ban. The other card enabling this deck is Soaring Thought Thief.
I personally don't care about Bonecrusher Giant. If they want to ban a red card I say Embercleave please. But I guess we are past that point.
That said I don't think bans are really necessary currently.
