My annual, mid-year take on what should change in every format I care about. Five suggested changes for Vintage:

For episode 47, Geoff Moes (@ThallidTosser on Twitter), Nat Moes (@GrandpaBelcher), and Josh Chapple (@joshchapple) talk with Jerry Yang. Jerry is a longtime Team Serious member and a big influence on many teammates’ love of fun Magic and incredible food. If you want credible, he also has multiple StarCityGames Power 9 Top 8 appearances to his name. But who are we kidding, you don’t listen to this podcast for credibility.

    What if I want to see if my mental misstep will be relevant? Or if I go start downloading some porn and forget I was playing a game of Vintage?

    @vaughnbros said in SMIP: 2020 B&R Roundup:

    @desolutionist

    I’d be very happy with turn time limits, while we are discussing ways to improve Vintage and magic in general. Watching someone combo for 10 minutes straight, while I just click “ok” over and over again is the dumbest, most boring part of the game.

    That's my favorite part 🙂

    On Magic Online you can just F6

  • Maybe highlander Vintage is the only way to move forward with the new cards. I’d at least be interested in trying it out.

    If not highlander then the restrictions shouldn’t be so biased as to allow Workshops, PO, and Bazaar but disallow Gush, Channel, etc. What makes Workshop or PO so much more vintage worthy than Gush?

    People claim PO is non issue because of Null Rod. (LOL) meanwhile there’s another two mana artifact called Ankh of Mishra that has similar affect against Gush strategies. It’s just craziness. This restriction list is very dumb.

    It seems to me that PO players just want to play by themselves anyway so I’m happy to give them what they want and play other formats.
