Regardless of the outcome, I wish the newly formed council can at least make it seem like it's not a subjective decision ("I don't wanna lose against a random person because my Gira got OHKOed in one game out of eight, let's ban it so my stall teams can do ok").
Remember how stagnant GenIV was at the end of Plat. If no one is willing to adapt to certain things (note that I don't agree on unbanning ALL clauses) there is no reason to even test stuff.
I think the point is that stall barely exists in some other tiers (OU, for example), and Ubers is where it flourishes, so we would want to keep it that way.
