    How much responsibility do casual deckbuilders have to be able to close out games?

    If your win condition is something other than, "exile all cards from all decks from the game, with the last card being exiled also ending the turn," just keep refining.

    Acererak, the Archlich

    Right, I was thinking of Lost Mine duplicating the effect of a Tendrils, rather than using the actual card. The treasure token from the Mine Tunnels room is sufficient for Bomat Courier and Elixir of Immortality to provide unbounded dungeon venturing, not constrained by initial library size, as...

    Acererak, the Archlich

    I am imagining your interest here is that it is a two card Tendrils of Agony with unbounded storm count. Any other interesting plays you see outside playing some spells without cost (which Aluren is already providing for the most part)?

    Mana Burn back?

    That Horizon Stone is a beautiful card, and it is interesting to see the designers using a classic part of the game that was revised out as a new design space. I wonder if mana burn will move from a Commander specific design space into Standard or perhaps Modern through a specific release.

    Strixhaven: the most dull set since Homelands

    I just wanted to chime in regarding the analysis of Amonkhet as dull. Approach of the Second Sun made it the greatest Standard set I have played, not just on how much I loved that card but also the support elements for my all basic lands and spells, no creatures deck (in Standard)! Hour of...
