MAGIC: The Gathering ... Connecting the dots .. the domino effect

Everything below are just speculation and guesses. 
With the recent changes to ProTour payout on appearance - link here
I would have to speculate for the reason behind this sudden move.
Now connecting the dots i have found the following below:

I believe this all started with the "leak" on a cards spoiler then banning of a handful of judges - 
Now this is a red flag for judges (as they are volunteers that can be dispensed by WOTC anytime they seem fit), 
opted them to make counter measure regarding matter moving forward, 
hence they filled a lawsuit against WOTC. link here.  
Now Wizards check everything, 
and later found out that Pro Players can also be qualified as an WOTC employee 
once Judges win the lawsuit case.
Now to proactively counteract things, 
they reduce the payout on Pro Players (supposedly making them look like players rather than Employees.
  • if you would look closely on the lawsuit, it would seem that Pro Players are likewise Employees of Wizards

While all of this are all my speculation, and just wild guess. 
But who knows, it might be true ^_^

Modern Magic

I will be building me self a Modern Deck,
but due to the nature of Modern Rotation,
i will have to set some criteria on Modern deck to build.
wait, what do i mean by Modern Rotation? well Modern do not rotate perse.
but every new expansion there is a ban list announcement.
once a specific modern deck becomes popular and very strong
there is a very big chance that a part of that deck will be banned.
with the banning of that card (i.e. Birthing Pod, Eye of Ugin, Eggs, Bloom, Splinter Twin)
that deck archetype becomes obsolete, hence rotates out.

Now with the price tag of a modern deck, and the premise above.
below will be the criteria for Modern Deck i will build

  • cheap
  • must have a tribe of some sort (^_^)
  • must contain white
