Awesome, thanks very much for the support!
I find people that hate children often forget that kids are a reflection of their parents. If they find a child so annoying, spoiled, rotten, etc, maybe they should be questioning the parents…
Children are very impressionable, so they’ll imitate things they look up to or by the very people they’re raised by. Just look at child stars in America for example. Britney Spears, Mylie Cyrus, Lindsey Lohan, are all just horrible people because of the things they were exposed to growing up. A household full of alcoholics and drug abusers? What chance did their kids have for a normal life.
How is Magic the Gathering suppose to be an awesome game when the most vocal player base are drooling man-children that have no idea how to treat women, let alone pull up their own pants? Rather than let them be vocal, we as a community need to be louder than they are.
I say we need a safer environment at FNM and at sanctioned events. There needs to be reinforced rules on inappropriate playmats, sleeves and hygiene. Everyone needs to feel safe from sexual harassment and sexist behavior. If Brian Kibler could force change on MTGO, why can’t we have change as well?

Some of the powerful people at WotC are women and parents themselves. Let them know it’s time for change for a safer environment for women and children. Reinforce their policies at FNM level events.

Yeah, which doesn’t surprise me, but I still get this weird feeling that they won’t be reprinted all at once. Maybe 1-2 copies in maybe an Event deck here and there, but it’s hard to imagine them being in a Core Set.

Yup, that’s a fun card! People overlook it since they don’t see it in Standard or Modern.

I kinda doubt “not caring about Legacy/Vintage” since there’s a lot of new cards and deck types made in the past 3 years that has affected those formats. Examples of that would be: Stoneblade, Miracles, Omni-tell, etc, in addition to Grafdigger’s Cage for Vintage.
It’s true that Modern has caused card prices to go insane, but you have to consider that the format is more popular than they expected. I predict that by the end of next year, the format’s price will stabilize so new players can make the transition from Standard to Modern, without much of a hassle. As you said, there isn’t a reserve list in the format so reprints won’t be an issue.
Let’s be honest about the bannings. Do we really want to see a deck like “Eggs” in a competitive format? Jund got nerfed twice and it’s still one of the best decks in the format. WotC’s weeded out most of the worst things in the format, so it won’t be a huge issue unless Theros block does something insane… which probably won’t.
