Of course, people will try to build control decks early on, which is actually a bit problematic, because building a control deck requires you to know what you have to answer. You can’t really do that before the format has taken some form. Another key question is what you can use as your win condition. Still, lets see what we can do.

So this will be my random rambling about different formats.

The spoilers have started in force, so we can go ahead and plan and perhaps brew some more.
