    I'd definitely try to find room for a genesis wave in that list.

    Concordant crossroads is not a cheap card, at about 20$, but can be really good in this kind of deck.

    My opponent had a glowing kitty-cat.

    It hissed at me when I clicked on it.

    They only banned around 50 people, and it was only for 5 days, and those people were clicking the cat 150+ times per minute through pretty much entire matches, for thousands of clicks per match.

    Clicking the cat once, or even several times, just plays a flashy animation and changes its color. It's only a problem if you spam-click it like crazy.

    Oh, and that's for when it's your own cat. Clicking the opponent's cat isn't an issue at all, I think.

    In case you're curious, the problem is the flashy animation I mentioned. The opponent sees it too, and playing that animation so ridiculously many times can overstress Arena's ability to render it. Click it rapidly enough and continuously enough, and the opponent's client becomes unable to process attempts to play cards. That's the real reason for the bans, because doing this can force the opponent to run out the timer on their entire turn without doing anything, giving you an unfair advantage.

    I recently noticed that a large portion of my wins, ignoring those where I don't know why my opponent conceded, seem to involve using their stuff against them... even though my deck didn't actually have Mass Manipulation.

    It has it now, though!

    So, the new set is Throne of Eldraine and it's going to be Camelot meets Grimm Fairy Tales. The art is breathtaking.

    Also, Commander 2019 spoilers start the beginning of August.

    The new set information got released over SDCC. It's called "Throne of Eldraine" and takes place on the plane of Eldraine. Other than it being a top down setting, where the set is designed to evoke "Grimm's Fairy Tales in Camelot" we don't know much about it.

    We also learned that Eldraine is the home plane of the Kenriths, Rowan and Will will both have Planeswalker cards in the set.

    I kind of wish Arena had Maze's End, since it's pretty much the only card ever printed that lets you win without successfully casting anything.

    If your opponent is countering every spell you cast and somehow still has resources left over, I don't think a 3/3 without haste every turn (Ichorid, which I presume is your implied wincon) will matter.

    I could certainly be wrong, though.
