A lot of people are losing their shit over the new legend/planeswalker rule, and to a certain extent the new extra lands rule from this article.
While those do feel like downgrades (and the extra lands one certainly is, while the legend/planeswalker one is highly abusable) the more, nay, most important change is the new sideboarding rules!
TL;DR of the new sideboarding rules; your deck in your sideboarded games can be of a different number of cards than in game 1!
You can have 60/15 in game 1 then 75/0 in game 2 and 63/12 in game 3! You can even start with 75/0 in game 1 then go back to traditional 60/15 in game 2 @o@
The one that really blew my mind was the 75/0 to 60/15 (and vice versa) changes.. *_* the possibilities..
it doesn’t seem like a lot, but these changes open a whole new way of deckbuilding that I can’t even grasp yet because its such a new way to think of things *O* sideboards have always been almost one-to-one swaps with the mainboards..
I don’t know how to give any examples of why this is so cool, mostly because the current Constructed decks we have were never built with these rules in mind @_@
Hahahaha I’m excited to build decks again <3 sideboarding has always been one of the most interesting things about building a deck (and has the least people who knew what they were doing with it) and now it has gotten even more deep and interesting~
So happy *_* Being a primarily Limited player, I have long wished for the Limited rules of sideboarding to be applicable to Constructed..
..too bad I can’t switch between multiple decks like in limited though :P
