That opening hand though. I don't remember what else I had, because turn 3 gigantosaurus was all that mattered to me. It's hard to deal with a 10/10 that early.
Unfortunately my opponent (playing a wheel heavy Nesukar deck) forced me to discard right before I dropped the dinosaur. So instead I played Ruric Thar, which I think was so oppressive he would have preferred the gigantosaurus.
It might be the time to get Faithless Looting banned in Modern. As everyone knows i am not a big fan of getting cards banned in the modern format. I am more on the other side and happy about each unbanned card in the modern format. But right know we are facing a problem where multiple graveyard based decks are capable to put a lot of pressure on the board on the first and second turn. History has shown that even turn two Rest in Peace is not enough to stop this madness. My biggest problem with these kind of decks is that they generate those boardstates completly random most of the time. And this is causing nonfun gameplay. While Faithless Looting isn’t the most random card compared to Burning Inquiry it is the most consistent because it allows the glasscannon decks to filter away lands in the midgame due to flashback. Bridevine, Dredge, Hollow One and Grishoalbrand are currently the decks which put up problematic boardstates on turn one and two. But the banning would hit fair decks like Mardu Pyromancer and Grixis Death‘s Shadow too.
