@wintage There's no reason why the VSL should affect this. It's not like the VSL is chock full of brewers who are going to break open the format. The best brewers in the format aren't even included in this VSL season, such as @brianpk80 who instantly 5-0'd with his brew after the B&R update.
One could argue that it was the VSL circle jerk last season that got Gush and Gitaxian Probe restricted.
I agree, and I'm not discounting that possibility. Restrictions might indeed happen because of the VSL. I just do not believe we are going to see crazy innovative decks that we do not already see from some of the great brewers this format has.
