It is very, very easy to combo in every color. Blue is not innately "better" at it. Blue is simply better at defending it.

And for the record, here are some of the Generals we use in our group:

Uril, the Miststalker - Me (straight up Voltron aggro)
Glissa, the Traitor (Voltron Aggro)
Ezuri, Renegade Leader (Elf Aggro)
Mayael the Anima (Stompy Aggro)
Marath, Will of the Wild (Aggro with +1/+1 counters)
Doran, the Siege Tower (Non-blue Attrition-Control Hybrid)
Kaervek the Merciless (Black/Red Aggro-Control Hybrid)

It's interesting that all the decks you listed are described as aggro. I think that blue is the best control color, but after that it would probably be white, black, red, green. I think by eliminating blue you guys really hurt control decks.

In your group, I'd be tempted to roll in with Oros, the Avenger wraths.dek to see if I can get the color pool banned down to just green. :D

And the list of players unsatisfied with Prophet of Kruphix grows ever longer.

I hate the card, but it does fall in to the same box as CSphinx or DEN: It does nothing when cast and does not get you very far if you derp it out early. Sure you need to answer it soon, and I even made the almost exact same post when I played against it in a good deck, but at some point good cards win games. Would I cry if DEB, Prophet and C Sphinx went away, nope. Do they fit the current ban criteria, maybe, but it kind opens a new bucket like Prime Time did.

Just to let everyone know, Karametra is the next card to get banned for being green and good with ramp. Especially when people forget that Karametra only works when creatures are "cast," and thus Avenger of Zendikar isn't another Boundless Realms with her out.

Ban her while the banning's good!

(No, I'm not being serious.)

Seems like a decent amount if I'm going to devote all my slots to wraths. Not too many that I'm going to always be overloaded, but not too few that I'm going to not being able to drop lands at a regular basis...

I suppose the deck does need to draw cards... I could probably cut it to 37 lands if I include some card draw.
