I read @Prospero post from a few months back and I recall thinking that I just miss paper magic and playing with people in person. Lately, I have been trying to figure out what happens to Vintage when paper magic returns.
The answer is nothing good. No one is really buying into the format, and the prices are crazy. It's hard for Old School players to get cards and decks together.
This is just the reality of where we are today and this has prompted me to ask - what does paper Vintage look like now? I play cards to play with people. MTGO and digital play does not work for me.
I play webcam magic but I want in person card play. If Vintage is only proxy will people show up to play? The number of people playing Vintage on MTGO is going down not up based on number of people in leagues.
Are new players entering the format in digital? Will players play paper using proxies?
I'm just interested in honest thoughts.
