@gutocmtt said in Is Vintage a digital format now?:

In terms of quality from MTGO I think for a piece of software it's somewhere close to the best we can get at simulating a magic game.

I hear this a lot, but there are free alternatives. I don't get why people keep trying to play on MTGO when it's full of bugs that shouldn't have existed in the first place. On top of that, it requires you to pay money for cards that will continue to devalue and look worse than scans of actual cards. Why endure that for a program that Wizards is not incentivized to keep on life support?

@msg67183 The list does not have Brainstorm or Ponder, but has 4 Preordains. Was that intentional? If you want to use 4 Mana Drains, I think you can support Treasure Cruise.

I think sorcery cards should be high impact or left out if you want to use 4 Mana Drains. If you have Sorcery cards or Mana Drain to cast early game, you want to either leave up Mana Drain, or cast a high value sorcery. Preordain isn't very high impact. 0 Flusterstorms is kind of scary when you're trying to resolve Mana Drain and other counterspells. Flusterstorms are also critical for pushing your opponent to cast 3 or more spells in counter wars for you to cast Mindbreak Trap for free.

Search for Azcanta is too fragile. When it is an enchantment, it gets destroyed by Pyroblast. When it is a land, it gets destroyed by so many cards. It is a nonbo with Back to Basics. That's a lot of hoops to jump through for a card that does nothing for an entire turn.

@13nova I just watched @ChubbyRain's latest stream. You mentioned that you put together a more complex Doomsday deck than the ones in the 4 Gush days. Would you be willing to share the list with us here? I am very interested to see it.
