from what i understand, my local meta is pretty skewed compared to the wider commander meta
there aren’t really any variations in decks. it’s just johnny combo and his seven billion buddies who also happen to be named johnny combo. the closest thing to aggro is krenko or if we’re lucky some bullshit voltron. (never seen a zur at the table, though. not once.)
on top of that, though, not only is it just a couple dozen johnny combos, they’re all massive dicks. which may sound redundant, but it does them an injustice to leave it unspoken. the guys at my card store are HUGE RAGING DICKBAGS. so my cute and more casual decks are ground into a fine paste and served on rye toast by turn 5 when johnny combo number 17 of the night goes infinite again.
so, you say, why am i happy about the tuck rule? because tucking in my meta never stopped johnny combo. i’m not sure anything in my meta short of every individual patron of the card store getting a sudden hard on for artifact removal could stop johnny combo. but do you know what tucking does stop? my cute and casual theme deck. nothing in any of my decks could even remotely threaten the hardcore dick-waggling combo players i sit down with each week. and yet time and again i see my commander get spell crumpled, or chaos warped, when it was never a threat to anyone. just like that, my deck has been shut off. i no longer get to participate in the game because my fun, casual theme deck can’t function without its commander, because i intentionally made that design choice.
tucking was never effective removal of problematic commanders in my meta because the problematic commanders that can only be dealt with by tucking do not exist in my meta. is it selfish that i am happy about the tucking change? yeah, it’s super selfish, my decks now work while the decks of countless others no longer do. but hey, i’m not playing with them, and my primary concern is with how rules changes affect my local meta. and this change is a good one for goofy theme decks trying to stay afloat in a sea of johnny combo and his technicolor infinite turn generator.
