January 2023 Votes

Greetings everyone ,
we are bit early this time because of New Years Eve but the Archon Council decided to put a change to the vote. You can vote on the following change:

Unbanning Tasigur, the Golden Fang

You can had over to our Discord to cast your vote! You have time to do so until 15-Jan-2023 12:00 CEST.

Here is the reasoning for the proposed change:

The Archon council is proposing the unbanning of Tasigur, the Golden Fang as a Commander in the Archon format after careful consideration of all the relevant factors. We believe that Tasigur will not be overly oppressive in the current environment and will add a unique and interesting Commander choice to the format.

One factor that we considered is the overall power level and speed of the Archon format. It is true that the format has become faster and more powerful since Tasigur was originally banned. As a result, we believe that Tasigur’s cheap casting cost, which can be circumvented through the use of the delve mechanic, is no longer as much of a concern as it was in the past.

Additionally, cards like Upheaval and Life from the Loam, which interacted strongly with Tasigur in the past, are no longer considered oppressive in the current environment. As a result, we do not believe that Tasigur’s interactions with these specific cards will be a major concern.

We also believe that unbanning Tasigur will add diversity to the format and provide an interesting and unique Commander choice for players. Tasigur’s ability to be played in Sultai colors allows for a wide range of deckbuilding possibilities, which will encourage creativity and strategic thinking among players. Additionally, unbanning Tasigur could potentially lead to the development of new and innovative decks that take advantage of its unique abilities.

For theses reasons we propose to unban Tasigur, the Golden Fang as a Commander in Archon.
