Why did people here feel the need to be so pretentious and condescending when responding to RonB?

I must say that I'm very confused that anyone would try to equate Braids to Sheoldred and Anowon. Unlike them, Braids will continue to make you sacrifice permanents when you don't have any creatures left. The fact that she causes her owner to sacrifice things is a minor inconvenience in a mono-black deck built to run her at the helm.

I don't think that enough has changed in the game to warrant her being unbanned. There are some very narrow answers that can't be played in most color combinations. I think that it's unreasonable to demand any action regarding her unless there is a serious change that makes her less efficient at killing games.

So the immediate response to someone having an inexperienced opinion is to condescend them? I would hope that the old timers on this forum would be a little more mature than that.

So I have been here for a bit, and certainly had some disagreements with many here, but expecting imperfect people to handle situations perfectly isn't practical. There have been quite a few people pop in post once or twice on topics that are not new to us and get very angry when people don't immediately agree. Who's problem is it? Well that depends. If people want the community to grow, then it is the communities problem. If we want to develop an echo chamber, than we should put down discenting opinions with haste.

To be clear, I am pretty much anti-banning. I would probably have less than 10 cards banned as I strongly feel that people should be able to play with the cards they own. However, I do understand that some cards ruin games, and people like myself get few opportunities to play.

If someone casts to kill everybody but themselves on turn 6+ it might be a little anti-climatic but I would be okay with it. if they cast it on t2 with the only creature on the field being their I will be less than excited. Frankly when I am playing EDH I want the games to last longer than it takes to shuffle up. I want everybody to feel like they contributed, and ideally everybody felt like they could have won.

Honestly a huge issue with this forum is that the people who have been here for years (like Carthain and others) see themselves as somehow better and above new users. They think it's okay to condescend them and actively try to make them feel stupid because it helps their massive inflated ego. That kind of attitude is pathetic and toxic, and is one of the many reasons why this forum is terrible.

Sickly, did you just create an account today with the sole intention of crapping over multiple threads? Because you're wasting your time if that's the case. It's not elitist or condescending to dismiss users that come on here with the attitude you have, no matter how much you try to convince us otherwise.

I love how it's "elitist" to ask for examples so we can try to improve things :facepalm:

Guys, honestly it wouldn't surprise me if RonB and Sickly are the same person, and he made a second account for the express purpose of trolling you, in which case you're taking the bait. He's a troll at best, and should not be fed.
