Quote from idSurge »We will have data though, easily enough to infer what is competitive, optimal, or just 'viable'.
You cannot look at 5-0s but SCG Top 16, Day 2s, Modern Classics, Modern Online Challenges (especially) and GP Top 16s are all meaningful data if you wish to metagame for Online or larger competitive events.
I've done it, it's fine.
It's not worthwhile for FNM.
What data is going to even matter?
Ehh I guess. I'm just more sick of people saying things are fine and healthy, when they have not been for quite a while.
At least the nice thing about MTGO is that since I don't waste my money on Leagues, I have no qualms with right click -> concede match every few pairings. When I don't have to actually play against those rancid abominations, many of the games are almost fun.
