Kill the Mill
I find mill decks to be an abomination of the game. The entire strategy around them is based on avoiding to actually battle other players and instead force their game to end because they run out of cards. It's a very anti-magic style of play which I want nothing to do with. As a result, the massive resurgence of this format has made the game unbearable for me to play. For over 20 years I've always appreciated the strategy component of magic that allowed me to go head to head against other players in a chess match like a battle and now I can't log in and play more than 2 games without running into these decks that are a complete circumvention of everything I loved about the game. My hope Wizards of the Coast never intended for the game to be played this way and the ability to put together such a dominant deck based on this format was a simple oversight that will be rectified in the very near future.
I am Running a Yorin Abzan Deck. I have 81 cards in my deck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My Opponent cast a single Crab T1 and he casted by T5 and T6 respectably Teferi-s Tutelage.
During all this time i only managed to get on the battlefield a single Birth of Melitis T2 followed by a Mire Triton T3 who got Heartless Acted. Everything else got countered.
Mill decks got to go!!
Standard has been unplayable for far to long. Whoever is in charge of this has been screwing up let and right since over 1 year ago, and this crap is going to stay like this for another.
Seriously i have been a Gamer for over 15ys and this is the first time i am actually posting a complain.
It feels like the people in charge don't play the game. Standard needs a hard reset!!!!! Or a massive ban-wagon.
I would rather play against mono red 10 times in a row than play a single game against Mill. At least is not so infuriating.
I will still be playing the game daily but i wont waist my money until standard is playable.
Makes playing no fun, I just concede now when I see it. Low cost creatures with flash and flying, that come with mid price power AND MILL. Awful.
Really annoying mechanic of the game. Overpowered and kills the joy of the play.
Its not a huge deal to me that mill exists, but the necessary tools to defeat it are not there, making it way too powerful. Something like gyas blessing is all thats needed. Fix please.
