Ultimately, I think the goal of the comp council isn't necessarily to nerf lists, I think it is to make sure no one list spoils the event. For example, an all ethereal VC army could be built to a theme, could be really cool if well done, and will probably never win the event, but paired against a non-optimized orc army with very few magical attacks will absolutely ruin the orc player's day. Same for an army with 5 cannons and little magic, probably won't win the event, but pair it up against someone with a big monster and you've made it a non event for that player.My comp goal, is to ensure that everyone has a good time. You can bring an awesome list that you're super proud of and super excited about! But if we think it's going to ruin a day, we'll ask you to change it.
