There will be a streak of Eternal events that includes the only EU Legacy GP if anyone fancies spending some time over here.
4 Seasons Fall, 23th-24th Nov, Bologna, with both Eternal formats
Magicfest Bologna, 29th-1st Dec, the only Legacy GP in EU
Nebraska's War, 5th-8th Dec Lucca, with both Eternal formats

Bologna's got an international airport easy to fly to and takes 1h and half of high speed train to reach Venice in case one wants to visit it while using Bologna as base during the first week. Then 30mins by train to the south there is Florence that one has to go through and can visit for a couple of days on his way to Lucca. Close to the latter there is Pisa with int airport to fly back home.

If coming only for one week the best combination in terms of Magic, tourism and time/money saving is GP+Nebraska, visiting Florence in the meantime. I'm a local and usually friends come for Nebraska's War from overseas (Joe Brennan, Dan Miller, etc.) so I can provide information and lodging in Florence, do not hesitate to ask.

    I'm buying 4x (maybe 40x). They printed Companion last set and I hear they are printing Commander as a Vintage type in Kaldheim. Can't wait!

    Seriously? Source on this?

  • I suspect it is worse than you think. Unlike vintage you always start with your commander "in hand" and the mulligan rules are far more forgiving in that format. Drawing this is almost always going to be live and basically a 3 turn ramp into your game ender, or at least something that will give you a near insurmountable lead.

    The closest parallel to this is when Lurris was legal before the companion change. Yes in commander you are potentially looking down the barrel at 3 other players who can interact with you, but not everyone is running blue or FOW in that format anyway. Turn oneing this into Azusa, Lost but seeking and dropping 2 more land into play is scary, and there are a number of other commanders that are very scary if they can come down that much earlier and combo off.

    The only thing that actually holds that format together is the pact the players made with each other for it to be a "fun" format, but the rise of cEDH is going to test that and this is really going to push boundaries. I never much liked the format myself, too much shuffling and I don't find playing underpowered decks for fun to be very compelling, so it should be interesting to see where this goes.

    Also, can they even ban this if it's too good? It cannot be played anywhere else and it no doubt is going to hit with a huge pricetag. There are not that many card that can be banned in one format and not be functionally playable anywhere else.

    This card has no Vintage implications, but is a notable printing nonetheless as the closest replica yet to MtG's most iconic card:

    alt text

    Jeweled Lotus 0
    Artifact
    T, Sacrifice Jeweled Lotus: Add three mana of any one color. Spend this mana only to cast your commander.

    I don't play a lot of Commander, but naively I expect this card to dramatically increase the variance and power level of that format...
