You didn't go to NYSE VI either so it's not surprising that you, as a Texan, are disinterested in New York events.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Prospero asked for people's opinion and I gave mine.
I've traveled pretty far to tournaments before, including to New York state within the last year. (And another non-Magic trip to NY about a month ago) My issue isn't with New York, it's about being in a difficult spot to get to in general. Like if I scheduled an event in College Station, sure you could get there (heck, United flies multiple flights every day) but I'd have a lot better turn out if my event was in Houston or Dallas or San Antonio or Austin.
I'm considering putting together a moderately sized Vintage event in the spring of 2020, likely at a local store, on Long Island.
Roughly thinking that it'd be for a piece of power or two, store credit to top eight, pre-registration, etc., with an entry fee around $75.
Seriously though, would you be in?
Long Island is simply too difficult to get to. Looking at flights, I can either spend ~$800 and most of a day traveling each way or I can spend far less flying to NYC and still be out most of a day getting to the tournament itself.
For comparison, the cheapest and shortest flight is $784 with 5:37 total travel time. For less money and a few hours more, I could fly to Paris.
Just moving away from Hasbro site. Which tells me something bigger is happening behind the curtains with the business? Maybe?
I think it's more likely that given how poorly the Hasbro site has handled these sorts of products in the past, it was easier to split it into a separate site that can be scaled up and down more easily.
More and more decks that are not Dredge or Shops are moving closer and closer to being highlander decks, the the point where I almost wish vintage was just a singleton format.
I've joked for a while that Vintage could move to singleton with the exception of Workshop, Bazaar, and Force of Will and it wouldn't be substantially different
Narset, Parter of Veils is restricted.
Next B&R Announcement: December 16, 2019
Following up on the recent changes to the restricted list and the results of Eternal Weekend North America 2019, we're making one additional change. In the context of the fast mana and efficient card draw available in Vintage, Narset, Parter of Veils is contributing to one-sided games at a higher degree than is healthy. In order to reduce the frequency at which an early Narset, Parter of Veils' static ability soft-locks the opposing player out of the game, Narset is restricted.
