It's removed because they feel it isn't so good for players to get "passive credits" just by playing in ELO.
If you dislike standard, you can try Extended format. From what I see, you'll be matched up to decks with star counts similar to yours, so you won't face any "OP-ed deck" if you use a low-star deck.
Ahh thanx for the reply .
Uhm , since I dont play all the time [i play for like 2 months then take 10 month brake [right now I have 1 week remaining b4 I go on break (Break = college)] , what would you suggest I do ??
*I sold all my cards coz I was sure that the prices will fall drastically over time as a 7 credit pack has been launched .
Should I buy a deck or rather w8 out the period and buy 'em after 10 months or so ??
