Gitaxian Probe and Golgari Grave-Troll are banned in Modern

Dredge had really gotten a boost from Cathartic Reunion and Prized Amalgam which means that Golgari Grave-Troll goes back on the banned list once again. It was fun to see the troll in play for a while but I can only agree with this decision.

Gitaxian Probe enabled too many strange things in the format and I think it is time to see it go away. Phyrexian mana is utterly broken and this card proved the point.

Standard had also gone a bit crazy and we see some Standard bannings, something that is not very common.

Three cards were banned in Standard:

Emrakul, the Promised End
Smuggler's Copter (finally)
Reflector Mage

Pauper was untouched, which I agree with.

Full announcement here:

What is your opinion on the bannings?
