I'd appreciate somewhere to discuss 93/94 (having little opportunity to play). Perhaps with a central place for discussion, there may be a move to a more regularised legal-set and banned/restricted list (or at least an understanding of pros/cons).

@mediumsteve said in WotC Italy threatening TOs/LGSs to pull sanctioning/WPN over the use of "playtest cards" in Eternal formats:

Playtest cards in non-sanctioned events = OK
Playtest cards in sanctioned events = not OK

Let's not make this bigger than it is...

Unfortunately this is incorrect outside of the US and has been for some times. Nothing is put in writing and stores won’t say anything directly; but in a choice between keeping their WPN status or running non-sanctioned events with playtest cards..... the event don’t run. It’s a stark choice.
