    Happy birthday!

    The bane of my life, but pfffffffffttttttttt. Surprisingly though, I'm pretty sure it wouldn't cause much trouble in Modern. It would be a weird experiment.

    Thanks c:

    Well, it wouldn't be too powerful in Modern indeed. It'd be very fun in that Amulet of Vigor deck.

    It wouldn't do anything in modern.

    Too slow and not powerful enough compared to everything else going on in the format. If you want to ramp to 8 mana, I'm sure others are glad to smash you in with RG aggro, Auras, Pod Combos, Splinter Twin combos, Tron which ramps faster. Scapeshift also would kill faster.

    It would only see casual modern play. But this was obvious.

    It's honestly one of the least fun commanders to play against but probably one of the more fun ones to play with. My resentment may come from the constant infinite combos that you played in your deck though, especially when I tend to be one of the few players who actually plays anything to deal with such combos and I've been shying away from decks that can do that recently for more fun decks.

    I've stopped with the infinite combos lately online, because IRL everyone does those anyway. Wanderer is hardly boring to play against otherwise IMO. It's an explosive ramp deck generally. Boring decks to play against are stax, I think.
