I know Menendian used to upkeep a shortlist for Vintage staples, but is there somewhere a somewhat up-to-date shortlist for eternal staples? I am planning to clean sweep my mtgo collection (12-15K cards) and would like to leave in all cards that are staples or playable in Vintage and Legacy. But I am relatively new to the formats and I might be missing some cards as I don't have a ton of playing experience. A shortlist of staples would make my springcleaning much easier...

I really liked to draft this set. I drafted it twice with poor success, but the draft format was fun. Reminded a lot of some older core sets with decent removal, but the creatures are of course very different than nowadays. Wastelands are already climbing back up, if you needed Wastelands hopefully you bought them while they were low.

Mentor loses to Sudden Shock and Plowshares; not really a concern.  Was just looking for creatures that might have more utility overall than Aegis of the Gods.  I've been using Hammer Mage, but Containment Priest is quite good because of its Flash mechanic. Playing 4 Containment Priests is probably the right call.

I think SelverOfDecrets has a similar mindset to where I'm coming from.

I think versus the majority of the field Mana Drain is respectable, but it's against other blue-based strategies where It can let you down.

The idea that against a Mentor/Pyro deck they can initiate from one card draw spell to the next, which develops into such an overwhelming advantage seems difficult for a Mana Drain to compete against.

Which spell are you suppose to Mana Drain?
How good are Preordain/Gush when you can't appropriately use them when having to leave mana open to possibly counter the 1 of 5 spells your opponent may cast.

This is where my difficulty lies.

Responses and feedback are appreciated, and encouraged.

Is everyone able to decide on a single day so we can streamline this a bit? That, or record their matches so they can be commentated on.  Or at least a few people decide on a day so we can so we can do a test run with the stream. Also, does anyone know somebody who does overlays? While it isn't required, it does make everything look very polished and keeps Skype names secret which can be pretty important.

I have recordings of all of my matches for you guys.

Ok I am good to be send the vids so we can do a couple commentaries. Also, Kael Williams I am unable to determine which one on Facebook is you so if you could PM me so we could get this off the ground that would be awesome!

@JACO Those maindeck Homeward Paths are such an amazing idea!  Such an awesome middle finger to Dack Fayden

I would say Suphur Elemental vs. Monks but ... that won't end well for your team. If you are taxing them and they have to tap out for the Mentor there is Fiend Hunter. Relying on sorcery speed damage effects vs. Monk is pretty bad, so I think the ETB damage creatures are right out.

@serra Fulminator Mage is absolutely not Human. Avalanche Riders are.

If the Forgemaster were your only creature, then you could have prevented the Oath from happening if you had gotten something other than a creature. Oath checks both at the start of the upkeep and also on resolution. So, grabbing something like a Trinisphere would have stopped the Demon from arriving.

Thank You For That Info, I Was Always Told It Just Checked Upon The Trigger.


As For Chalice Of The Void, I've Cut Two In Testing To Add The Last Sphere Effect And phyrexian Metamorph And Haven't Really Missed Them
