[Poll] Adopting new "forum standard" balance changes

Figured this decision-making deserved its own thread.

Per the ongoing discussion in the Balance Patch 2.0 thread, the time has come for deciding whether we adopt a v2 ruleset for standard tournaments. I don’t think a “final final” proposal has been made there but want to poll the group if we’re actually doing this or not for our “solstice standard” tourneys

Please try to keep the discussion to the above thread and we can hammer out final proposals there

Should we adopt a new forum standard for rules?
  • Yes, it’s time for a v2 Codex rules for use on the forums, and the XCAPS22 changeset is it
  • Yes, it’s time for a v2 Codex rules for use on the forums, but we still need to refine the details w/ discussion in the above thread
  • No, I want to play the game as printed by default
