As mentioned in today’s article, WU Control has the 2nd-most Modern GP Top 8s recently, behind KCI. Jeskai Control is third. Hard to justify a Stoneforge Mystic unban in that environment.

SFM does not go into the current builds of UW Control or Jeskai. It doesn't fit in what those decks are doing, they can't cut 7 to 9 pieces of interaction to fit the SFM package in their 75. SFM would create its own separate archetype. It's like how GDS ≠ Grixis Control

Every UW or Jeskai deck would play 4 Stoneforge. It would be broken. I don’t know if it would be overpowered but it would certainly make the games against UWx pretty one dimensional.

Ok, so tell me what 6 or 7 cards UW Miracles would cut from its main deck to make room for the SFM package, and how that change fixes a problem that the deck has. You're a smart guy, Kevin, surely you can't really believe the Terminus deck is gonna start playing equipment?

I would need to see a list to tell you the cuts. And not only do I think the terminus deck would start playing equipment, I also think Stoneforge makes their Terminus better.

Go off this list: Also, you didn't mention what problems UW Miracles has that SFM solves.

V clique and a Teferi or jace probably an oust and the verdict is a start. Maybe a mana leak also. SFM for sure turns every UWx control deck into a UWx stonefore deck. It's undeniable.

It is deniable, considering how everyone that plays UW in here is denying it. The easiest refute to your stance is Legacy. Legacy Miracles has never played SFM, and she's better in that format than she would be in Modern. SFM creates her own more creature-heavy midrange deck
