As of January 2nd the Points List has been updated. Please read about the changes and the reasoning for them below.
Strip Mine: Lowered to 2 (From 3)
Reasoning: Outside of the rarely used land recursion combo, Strip Mine typically sees itself played in the 1-2 colour aggressive strategies. These strategies have seen a downturn in play and success of late, and we hope that this change might enable spreads beyond triple Moxen and enable these decks to impact combo strategies.
Time Walk: Raised to 5 (From 4)
Reasoning: Midrange strategies utilizing Time Walk have become increasingly common towards the end of 2016. Although it lacks the raw power of Ancestral, we feel the “Time Walk plus a 1 point card” is just too good a point spread at the moment.
Transmute Artifact: Lowered to 1 (From 2)
Reasoning: Although Artifact tutors are powerful, this card is a pointed holdover from previous spreads. We are hoping to encourage more Academy style decks with this change.
