If wild is so great and deserving of balance to the level of standard, why did they make standard at all???
Hard to convince players the format is worth anything when the company itself doesn't.
Did you really ask why they made standard? There is only one answer. They made standard as primary mod in which will be all competitions so that NEW players can be competitive and dont have to collect OR learn more then 1k of old cards! You must understand at least a little bit of marketing and how it works. There is no way they can create new players if they need tons of dust, cards and money to play only one mode with ALL cards..that is litarally IMPossible ;)
