I realize this is an old thread.
From 2003ish to 2004ish I was Balanceftw on TMD. When I went to college, I changed my handle to TheShop because I lost my login info during a year hiatus from vintage. I havent been active on TMD since 2012 and decided to go back to Balanceftw.
If you go look at the archive...I was a good bit more high strung than I am now. I am not super proud of everything I have posted in the past, but there are some gems in there. I think a lot of that was really wanting to play and struggling with the cost of the format and the lack of players in my area.
I have sold my paper collection and gone full MODO in the last month. I look forward to actually getting to play with all of the personalities I have been reading and discussing the format with for 15 years now.
I also realize this is an old thread, but since it's stickied I'm going to post here anyway.
My old username on TMD was JDawg13, and I was a fairly active member in the early-mid 2000s. I sold off my whole Magic collection in 2007. Most of my Magic playing these days is draft and cube, but I have recently started thinking about getting back into paper Vintage after dabbling a bit on MTGO. This new username is the same one I use everywhere online.
