After two years of ‘created by’ craziness, it was time for the pendulum to swing again. 

So why does taking part in Customary proper now really feel like a very wacky Tavern Brawl?

The prior growth, Insanity on the Darkmoon Faire, did not have a big impact on the meta at launch. The legendary Mage spell Deck of Lunacy was one among many playing cards that struggled to make the minimize, although it appeared prefer it ought to slot straight into No Minion Mage, a deck archetype that had been teetering on high-level playability. Quick ahead to now and Deck of Lunacy is probably the most highly effective card in Customary and it is
