"On the other hand, they have admitted that text matters." -- Smmenen
Steve and Jaco, you guys are putting up some absolutely great posts in this thread. Bobby, Vintage is a lot of fun, but the large card pool is part of why the format isn't nearly as "diverse" as something like Legacy. I, and many others, find a lot to enjoy and love about Vintage. But the format's pillars are what they are because they are so much more powerful than the alternatives.
