Never be afraid to get help. If you're a competitive magic player then you should know not to waste a free resource. I am going to be very disappointed if I find out Andrew had 1 free minute in between rounds on day 1 of this GP! https://t.co/KCjerX15qH

Bridge from Below is banned in Modern. As always, accompanied with a good explanation by @mtg_ianduke.
Noteworthy for the future: "we don't intend on setting a precedent for quickly taking B&R action whenever a successful new deck breaks out".

whoever at wotc thought its a cool idea to reprint a bunch of ninjas and throw a few one mana 1/1 unblockables into the set …. maybe pestilence and sparksmith at common too, while we're at it?
