What I can do, however, is make the judgement call that the benefits of banning sand heavily outweigh the negatives, because I have actually played in both types of metagames. I voted to achieve the best metagame possible--something you seem to fail to understand.
Also, like I said. I have something in mind to test a sand UU with the new stuff, so stop bringing that up. It's like you're arguing for the sake of arguing.
