Aggro Mar, and Anti Draw mar are now insane. I just went from diamond to S this evening had like 5 losses total from diamond 5 to S with AntiDraw Starhorn. Its crazy powerful. Like Reva level bad out of hand damage.
Then I have not even touched the new Pain Aggro with the crazy potential of the two drop.
Control Vath rejoices with drogar as an amazing finisher.
Thrax adds flood support.
Valknu is meh, but who cares the rest is amazing.
AggroMar probably just became the tier 0 number one deck. Control Vaath got some great tools, and has the option of running draw. Anti Draw starhorn went from trash tier to tier 1. Overall patch is amazing, yea sadly they neglected rebirth/egg (Although Valknu has potential with egg stuff.) but overall Magmar made off great. Yea I am sad they were pushed towards aggro but control is still in great shape, and starhorn is finally not only viable but possibly number one.
However…I have spent the last few months defending Magmars out of hand damage as balanced and having a reasonable amount interaction and counter-play since it was all based on rush which has limited reach, and is countered by provoke/nightwatcher. But these new draw spell finishers are nearly as unhealthy as SpellHai Reva in her dominant phase. Whether its overpowered or not is yet to be seen, but as always I am against lots of out of hand damage that can not be interacted with, because it goes against the core principal of the game, the grid. Now add this to their rush/burst combos and its officially unhealthy.
Now that I am already S I will sadly likely put down Starhorn in disgust despite always loving him before he was considered good.
