@nedleeds I remember those days for type II. What I did not understand was type I. This is when I started playing and I decided to buy into power and Mana Crypt and Mana Vault were both unrestricted for a long time. People did not figure out the Hurkly's Recall trick right away so the amount of broken fast mana was just crazy.
They really overreacted to the Hurkly's Prosperity deck and restricted all of the parts and left us with a dumb control heavy meta. Just to have Urza Block almost kill the format entirely. Good times.
