@Smmenen said in June 13, 2017 Banned and Restricted Announcement:
It was a very interesting announcement, but take with a grain of salt for Vintage. There are different imperatives in Standard, and different standards are applied for Vintage (the last place to play many cards). I did, however, appreciate the detailed explanation and the use of performance
Agreed. This is one of the only announcements I can remember where they reference using MTGO data, pro player and grinder feedback, as well as pro tour results data (which is the most visible of all the data, hence the data the public pays attention to). They also mentioned "magic is more fun when there is a lot of play and counterplay" and that they don't like games with unbeatable draws.
I know this is a lot of VERY basic information, but for those that like to decode these types of annoucments, this is a treasure trove of information from behind the curtain. I'm digging the increased transparency.
