@grandpabelcher Yeah I feel better now that I've listened to it and heard everybody else be as surprised as I was.

@anonymous I don't think this works, unfortunately. Even though it's a colorless spell on the stack, the card itself needs to be either an artifact or a colorless non-land card. If it was an artifact land with morph I think it would work.

At this rate if they ever do get around to making Future Sight 2, it can be all reprints of cards that are variants of Future Sight.

@ajfirecracker Doesn't come with a body attached or put the land into play, also is a bombo with Workshop so in that kind of situation it's actually the same price as this, if you look at it funny.

Topdeck tutors are nice with Bolas's Citadel in play, but even then I think there are enough better ones that this probably won't make the cut.

Very cool roundup, although if I can't write off old school as something I can't afford to play, I have no choice but to be disappointed that there doesn't seem to be a scene around here. These decks all look way more fun to me than the powered decks I've seen as well.

Great pod as always, and also great job with this set! The preview season for this was a delight day-in and day-out. Just the most enjoyable set for me personally in a great many years.

@moorebrother1 My opinion as a relative outsider (I have never played in a paper Vintage tournament) is that the format seems to be serving two masters right now. For a lot of people who play online or at the large events, or people who are picking up the format now because it's pretty accessible online, it's a competitive format, not too different from legacy or modern besides being higher-powered, that they want to brew and play within the same way as other formats. For a lot of people who play in local paper tournaments who have been bought in for a long time, it does seem to have more of a nostalgia component, and it does seem to be more about hanging out with friends, playing decks they find fun, and not really worrying too much about winning. And I think old school formats are probably a lot better at scratching the itch for a large portion of that latter group (which is why it seems to be quite a bit more popular). I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of the people running small-scale vintage tournaments now start transitioning to 93/94 over the next couple years for that reason. As far as how it can be successful without allowing proxies, I think it's just that it's more squarely pitched at its target audience: old school is fundamentally for people who have a lot of old cards that they want to play with.

@protoaddict here's that one for reference:

It does do some things and not being counterable is good. Six mana is a lot though. Probably someone will do something with it though.
