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

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.

Goes right into my tiny leader deck i totally have played a lot of matches with on the regular....

@aaron-patten maybe, but the restriction also opens up a bunch of cheap counterplay and disruption strategies like Thoughtseize, Duress, Spell pierce...

The tools to fight turn 1 wins are still there with the addition of FoN, FoV and the possibly renewed playability of Misdirection. It's just a way more interesting decision to make as well in deck building as in game.

@desolutionist i can see people tutoring for Ancestral way more often, so that might be a good idea

@desolutionist true, for artifact removal FoV is the best choice, however you have to jump through some hoops to get the green count requires I think.
Aren't multiple chain of vapors doing a good job against Thalias, Narset's, Spheres and Lavinias alike?

I could See myself Packung multiple in tue maindeck

@desolutionist but aren't we just able to play 1 mana disruption now that misstep is restricted?

@cutlex I just expect shops to go back to Aggro again. Maybe even with tech like Skullclamp

I already have so many questions and ideas, and that just for this deck.
Is playing a single MM correct?
The top tutors are great again, mystical and vampiric for sure, but what about Imperial seal?
Our discard is way better now, but other people will start playing discard as well so we need to be wary of that.
Is Merchant scroll good again? It finds a pretty safe ancestral now.
Will people start playing mystic remora more commonly again?
What do we think about stuff like Dispel and Spell pierce against us?
Are more than one Maindeck chain of vapor viable now?
And so on and so on...

It is time my friend... Time to rise up again
