What's to come of our new Eldrazi overlords?

Splinter TwinHi Everyone!
Splinter twin was banned for what a lot of people say is a "bad reason". People say Wizards wanted to "shake up" the format for the Pro Tour. At first I thought this was a reasonable ban because blue decks just get better with this combo. If a deck plays blue and red, your deck is better 100% of the time by playing this combo.

After the Pro Tour results...I kinda think it was about clearing a path for the new cards to dominate and ultimately buy more cards.

It's believable that the format needs a good once annual shaking, but let's remember this and see if next year we end up with the top deck being the "new deck" that couldn't exist without cards from the newest set.
