LSV and Matt Nass: The Ban Wagon
Companion nerf + Fires and Agent ban is a pretty big game. I hope this is enough, but it’s a good start. pic.twitter.com/kArsjshxiN

as I've been asked more than once: if you're wondering if the MPL discord knows about unimportant things like decklist submission deadlines and other rules (public lists, assistance) – No, we don't. minor details like that for a tournament in 10 days are obviously still unclear.

Companion fix seems unnecessarily fiddly but I will take it. Mission accomplished, protesting can work, don't give up.
Agent of Treachery ban seems right.
Fires of Invention at least reasonable.
Teferi ban would have backfired. Let's play some Magic! https://t.co/iKBz85JzHQ

I think right now Standard is: Bant Ramp > Temur Rec > Jund Citadel > Bant Ramp.
I don't know where the other decks stays in this but that's my initial thought after a league and a prelim.#MTGStandard
