I really hope for a errata or the companion mechanic as a whole.
However regardless of the changes made, the thing that interests me the most is if they actually acknowledge the mistakes they made with releasing this mechanic.
I just really hat to see the 2019 War of the Spark until present era of design continue.

@desolutionist believe me, you would have gotten sick of seeing lurrus real quick. Bad timing though for sure

@maximumcdawg said in B&R Announcement - May 18, 2020:

  1. When Will Cards Get Banned in the Future?

What exactly was the philosophy behind the Lurrus ban, and when will the rule be applied again? I feel like I know why Lurrus was banned because I observed the format with it, but I don't know exactly what the criteria will be for bannings in the future.

I guess the criteria was "we designed a card (mechanic) so sutpidly that restricting it does not adress the problem at all"

@evouga Where is this quote from?

That statement is way too short. Also they absolutely never acknowleged a mistake designing the mechanic and instead chose to blame "the power level of the other cards in the format" instead.
Just banning Lurrus for power level reasons is also the worst way to handle this situation in my oppinion.
Either banning all companions since the mechanic is at fault here, or errataing the cards so they dont have the keyword anymore (banning as companion) would have been way better...but then they had to acknowledge that the mechanic is the problem.

The event was really fun and allowed me to play paper since quite the while, thanks to the organisation!

I hate this mechanic btw. For some reason I hope that all cards with this mechanic get banned outside of EDH variants.

@griselbrother DC doesn't start as the 8th card in your opening hand every game though.
Iam however also skeptical from a DPS perspective since it won't let you play Necro, Bargain or Citadel

Adding to that: those cards are not only functional but also animated, there was obviously put some work time into them and I doubt it would be all for just this short event. I could really see a pseudo Vintage format coming, and that would be great

This seems ok, if an enchantress Deck would ever be playable, however this also doesnt seem to push this archetype into relevance

@log said in 5-8 December - Lucca, Italy - Nebraska's War 7:

TO also finally agreed to allow 15 proxies for Vintage, sadly it might be quite late to significantly boost attendance, but I hope it's a good start for the future.

This is huge for me! Sadly this news came way to late to consider attending, but this might very well my first big Vintage tournament next year 🙂

@ten-ten Dont forget that Narsets effect is assymetric. A unrestricted Windfall against Narset...sure, not that big of a Problem; With Narset however, thats quite the different story.

In this Article it is announced that the Arena Team and R&D will release a curated List of "the most relevant cards" from non standard sets to MtGA to allow for the client to support Formats "beyond standard". It is hinted that at first this will mean working towards Pioneer, but this might mean that pseudo-versions (with the most relevant cards) of older formats could be added to the game.
To me this sounds very much like we could see something like the proto-Vintage Format that was on mtgo before Vintage masters was added could very well be a reality further down the line.

Add ancient stirrings for sure.
Iam not sure how viable this becomes as distribution without the white Hatebears might be lower.
I guess FoV, Ouphe, Wastelands and Veil of summer has to be enough.
Do you want to build a powerless budget version?

@stasis_kismet did you cut DP for it? Did you use anything like keys to break it more? Would love to see your list

So we had a Doomsday top 8 and it doesn't even get mentioned??

Maybe it's Pack Rat time again...

Any news about wether or not Proxies will be allowed?

I was so hyped for TPS since the mm restriction, but now iam just kind of bummed....This card is absolutely insane and should not have been printed like this. Way to cheap, way too powerful effect, but most importantly a very very boring effect.
However ofcourse there will be ways to play around it: It's time to play multiple Chain of vapors Maindeck I guess.
