Any other writer would have taken the two interviews and made it the whole article. I was astonished to see how much content you managed to fit in there. Well done.

Wow this is an incredible compilation of data. Thank you for putting this together!

Also thank you @Smmenen for tagging me or I would have missed this!

I'll have to dig into this once I get home and can utilize my monitor setup.

@chubbyrain Worth noting since Matt brought up my example. Crypts and Cage are more much powerful for Paraodoxical Outcome then say leyline because they all contribute to your decks main gameplan of bouncing colorless low cost permanents.

To address your initial questions.

You can join practice room and direct challenges that cost 0$. And you can play solitare mode by yourself to learn the controls.

You can play these matches as long as you want before maybe moving onto leagues.

Leagues are 10$ and you can play 5 matches at your leisure.

The best value are challenges. These happen on Saturdays. You will play 6 rounds and 3-3 will get you your money back and better than that will be +value.

MTGO is the cutting edge of competitive Vintage. You will get the opportunity to play versus the newest metagame and great players. In a single challenge alone you can play versus multiple vintage world champions, VSL stars and MTGO grinders. MTGO is the best practice you can get playing Vintage outside of a small test group of similaily high level players. MTGO Vintage metagame is not held back by huge prices for paper cards. You can and will have access to switch decks at will as the metagame itterates week to week.

If you have any questions feel free to message me or stop by my stream and I will answer them live.

Thepowernine's PO storm with no vault key is better versus the best deck online atm UR Xerox.

Tinker version is playable but better versus a different metagame.

@gutocmtt excited to see it. I always tout you and hitogoroshi as the two best survival players online. Looking forward to the stream.

Pretty sure there are better cards that can do that affect. Karn is at its best when its ticking down.

I've posted about this just about everywhere but I can not stress how much I love this announcement. I know that I am in the minority as a Vintage player striving for the Pro Tour but this change perfectly fits my goals for Magic. I cant wait sink more time into Vintage and not feel like I am sacrificing to much time on my goal of making the PT. HYPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

@ebgmtg karn has been slowly less impressive for me. I thought he would be a good plan versus jeskai but I have found him to be a liability versus dack. I would be looking to move away from him in the future. @ChubbyRain 's opinion may differ?

@neo_altoid @CountDaBubba it is perfectly reasonable to play Dig and Cruise and up your blue count for FoW. This is what ecobaronen decided was the correct line. Personally my team liked dig, will, snap a small amount more.

@countdabubba Good question! It is my belief that you can only support 2 "delve spells" in PO. So for this you have to choose between Dig/Cruise/Will and Snapcaster. Dig is the best one as you are a combo deck. Cruise IMO is more underwhelming then Will and Will plays a bit better with the one snapcaster mage. It is perfectly acceptable to run 1 dig 1 cruise or 1 dig 1 will 1 snap. Any other configuration doesn't make sense.
