I've been playing that Bant version on MTGO a little bit, and it's a blast. I'm going to tinker with the list some this week. The only matchup I really hate with it is Oath, as it seems to have big game vs everything else I've faced. Wonder has won me multiple games where a mentor or robots are clogging up the ground.
Wow, @hierarchnoble thanks for that very detailed reply. That's a lot of information to chew on there. After considering what you've said about the ease of switching between decks without holding onto extra cards, it seems rather unimportant to keep anything you aren't using in a current deck. Very interesting! I like the approach of just holding tickets rather than cards. I don't switch decks all that often anyway, so that seems ideal for me. Thank you for sharing your thoughts! That was very valuable and should save me a lot of time and effort.
Ok, I sort of got the bug to play more vintage again and decided to build a deck on MTGO last weekend. I've noticed that there aren't any scheduled tournaments, but have had no issues getting practice games in over the last few days. I see the Vintage league, and will probably join that once I'm a little more comfortable with the (horrible) software. I have a couple questions about how the economy works, and prizes. I assume it's possible to accumulate prizes and trade for more tickets or other staples to build more decks. How difficult is it to do such a thing if you only play Vintage? I've also noticed that the prizes are some sort of treasure chest thing full of cards. When you win these, can you trade the treasure chest, or do you open it and trade the cards inside? What kinds of cards can you expect to find in one of these treasure chests? Sorry if these are elementary questions, and I thank you for your help ahead of time.
@Islandswamp Great article! I agree, I don't want more restrictions. I think the format is great right now as it is.
Granted, I only play paper magic. One of the (many) reasons I don't play on MODO is because people tend to gravitate towards the same 1-2 decks. I don't feel like this happens as much in paper magic. Anyone have any input on this?
