-Do you think it is a good idea to start with the historic B&R List?

What was the list back then?

Damn, maybe that's why I did so poorly 😧

@blindtherapy My dumb ass split the deck into piles based on what the pile did and then just didn't type the pile labeled "other" - fixed now!

I played the following list of format-legal cards in yesterday's Romacing The Stones Webcam Vintage. Top 4 included two Bazaar decks but of course I didn't get paired against them. Went 0-5 (2-10) so I wouldn't recommend this 75 but there hasn't been any discussion on this in a while so why not post it?

A lot of the changes I made are based around moving things to the board for Karn, then being reminded that he's restricted, and not undoing any of those changes.

I still think Karn should be in the deck but I don't know if losing sideboard slots so that Karn can fetch combo pieces is a great idea.

I considered moving the Time Vault to the board since it's only good once you've already got the Key and the Key is pretty alright in the deck as is.

The only time I was sad to only have a single Helm was because I had a Demonic Consultation in hand and naming a one-of is a mistake I've already made with this deck once.

Voltaic Key is in there because I forgot that Manifold Key exists.

Daretti was a Cabal Therapy naming "any counterspell"

Oko mostly just bought time in a couple draw-go games. The Food token got sac'd to Tinker once.

Why does this keep happening?

The forum has open registration, bots exist, and Andy has [probably] has better things to do than checking for spam posts daily.

Cheating in Magic is a tradition older than most Magic players. We're desensitized.

I'm not upset that Anuraag and Julian took a while to get this done.

I'm making fun of an eleven billion dollar company that can't live stream their championship when the local webcam tournament is able to do it with a handull of half-drunk dudes at that helm.

Yes, FoW, Bazaar, and MWS are STILL the "triangle" of Vintage

*grumpy old man noises*

back in my day, it was Drain, Bazaar, Workshop

FYI, it appears that "all access" does not include Secret Lair cards. If you would like to play a card that only appears in a secret lair, you will need to own that card.

@MagicOnline Is it a bug that the All-Access Accounts for Eternal Weekend can't use Secret Lair cards? I tried several times to put in an SL card and it wouldn't let me. Now that we have mechanically unique SL cards with TWD this is kind of important.

and

Have been informed that this is not a bug, which seems a little silly to me. Especially with the TWD cards.

Fortunately, I'm not nearly good enough for a tournament ten hours later to be overlapping 😄

While this is certainly intended to allow a worldwide audience to participate, it's cool that it's not super unreasonable to participate in all three events.

Magic is memory.

[...]

And we miss it. We want to return to the time when it felt new, or when Standard was good, when we were winning more, when all our friends played, when our schedules let us play more often, when Wizards designed balanced cards. We miss the old feeling.

(not by me)

@wagner said in Valakut Awakening:

Did no one bother to go look at the WotC mechanic explanations? It's literally where this card was spoiled.

It was spoiled (leaked?) before then by a YouTube video showing the card and what it did. Then that video was taken down and all that was left was screenshots and people talking about what they thought the video had said.

From the phrasing, it's unclear whether Invoke Prejudice is also on that list, as it is the subject of the first two paragraphs.

Hopefully this means we can get these effects functionally reprinted with more reasonable names.

Predictions:

  • Gush is unrestricted again
  • Discussing the reserved list is banned
  • Being disappointed by WotC's actions is now required
