    @thewhitedragon69 said in [WAR] Narset, Parter of Veils:

    @horologium I know I'm in the minority here, but I actually see her squashing of draw to be a good thing.

    It's not like this static ability is original or anything. There are now a handful of effects that do this, not least of which is Leovald, Spirit of the Labyrinth, and Notion Thief, but Narset does feel more obnoxious than others. I think that's less a commentary on Narset than the fact that cards like Preordain are so widely played in the format, and Narset is so pesky for them.

    So much hustle and bustle has been happening over the summer to the vintage format, but what will happen once the dust settles?

    Alternate Worlds in Hunt Valley, MD will be holding two Sanctioned Vintage Trials on August 24th and 25th.

    Come out and earn some byes for the 2019 North American Vintage Championship!
