    She isn't any worse than characters like 8 hand Dhalsim.

    I didn't get to play Extended or Legacy this year (like at all, no one here wants to play with me :P). That said, Seal of Cessation has always bothered me a little bit; the worst part of Military Rank was recurring Seals for free. It's not even a good safety valve -- like Keenan said, its awful stats mean that it is only a card for control decks. There are enough random answer cards in UFS that honestly I don't think we'll ever be overwhelmed by degenerate combination decks, unless those combo decks have enough answers for all the other answers.

    Honest question: Do 'attack decks' have a chance in Legacy? By that I mean a deck that might play three or four attacks on turn 2, hoping that the opponent can't block well enough. (with some foundation backup, obviously, but largely about the orange more than the grey)

    As far as drafting, the idea to have a pool of characters like Magic has basic lands is absolutely fantastic. Even if 4 people want to play the same at the end of the draft, they can! They'll each have to deal with the fact that 3 other players were cutting the best cards for their deck, of course. I've been kinda floating ideas around in my head for a while on a UFS Cube (cubedrafting.com has a description for MTG) and frankly this idea is utterly perfect. Now, it's just time to choose characters and themes . (btw, one is already decided; Astrid playing Chain Throw or Shadow Banishment as a reversal. All else will follow)

    Attack decks are 100% viable in Legacy and are very very strong. The bannings really shook up the idea about Legacy being gray walls banging into each other. Give the format a try as almost every single symbol is at least playable. Air, Earth, Fire, Evil, and All are very strong symbols with aggressive strategies.

    Legacy - I didn't play but I did have a deck to play with, I watched a ton of games and the format looks great, I only have a few cards that need to be looked at.
    Tira - So she may not be broken, but why should I be discouraged from blocking knowing I am gonna take damage anyway unless I have a way to negate her ability? That's trash.
    Hammer - It was a good card for the time but it is just too much of a pump for such a low cost and still completely shuts down any momentum based decks.
    Reverse Waterfall - Endless loops should just not exist. Period.

    Extended - Kill it, please with fire if possible. The matches are boring, take way too long and are just degenerate as all Also this last comment may be a bit bias but having to get to the TCG hall at 8am for Teams because we had to compromise for Extended just to not end up playing until 10:30am anyways REALLY irked me. If teams was just set to start at 10am with no extended I would've got to sleep more and been in better shape.

    Standard - This format is awesome and I love it, my only concern currently is as everyone has stated 7HS characters are just overpowering 6HS right now. The main concern I have for this right now is Paul Bittner, the only 6HS character that can stand up to his deck control is King because he doesn't require drawing attacks as much as other characters do, the only other one who might would be Mitsu just because how fast he can go off. Paul hasn't been out for too long so all we really have to go off of is what happened at Gencon but anyone with half a brain can see it to be true.

    I honestly think extended will not be a good format until 5 point rotates out of standard then I think it will be a good format
