@Shax Big fan of Dark Times, and always hoping for it to make a splash. Have you had a chance to try this list? Any changes/thoughts?

RE: How did you start playing Vintage?
I began playing in 1995. I got my first set of Power in 1998, and paid I believe $1200 for the 9 and a Library of Alexandria. I only made one deck with them, a Counter Burn brew, and otherwise left them encased in a plastic frame on my bedroom wall. I sold them, along with the rest of my collection, when I graduated high school.
Fast-forward 14 years, and I start playing Magic again as a way to meet people in a new city. I'm primarily a Legacy player, and just last week I de-pimped a large chunk of my Shardless BUG deck to buy a graded Beta Lotus. I also have an Unlimited Ancestral that I randomly picked up. I plan to acquire the rest of the Power soon, and will flip the Ancestral into a Beta version. Not quite sure what I want to do with them; the Vintage scene in DFW is almost nonexistent, and I'm not a huge fan of the Mentor-meta regardless. But they certainly provoke a lot of nostalgia, which is about 50% of the reason I play Magic. Maybe I'll put Counter Burn back together...
