Yeah that was my plan: to just try and play it casually like OS or premodern. I’m not trying to convince wotc to do anything. Although I think maintaining formats that depend on the reserved list is very stupid of them

I don't think WOTC trying to juggle another all sets eternal format when they cannot manage 1 all sets eternal format is a great solve for anything.

That’s the point. They can’t handle legacy or vintage and the players can’t afford the $10,000+ to play. My proposed format could replace both.

It’s an alternate to legacy because of the cost of dual lands and other reserved list cards such as Lion’s Eye Diamond, Mox Diamond, City of Traitors, etc.

I’ve always wanted power nine. I was lucky to win some back when they were “reasonable”. But even then I just sold them because the value was too great. I still want power now, but it’s just too expensive. I can try and get a piece within the year, but it’s almost as if the price will just increase by the time I can afford what it costs today. I think a lot of people especially vintage players are in the same situation.

My idea for a casual format to try is #1 All sets: Alpha-current are legal

However, #2 all reserved list cards are banned.

I know this significantly changes Vintage in some major ways, but what other choice is there? It seems like the only way to both capture the motivation for vintage where you can play any card from any set, but it removes a significant monetary requirement. When you walk up to someone on the street and ask them to play “magic”, chances are they’re not going to have a full set of power 9. I think this format would capture a greater audience potentially than the current legacy/vintage structure.

And again, I love power 9. But the cost of the cards just don’t make any sense. No reasonable person would want to get into this format if it wasn’t for mtgo and proxies

what about Sprite Dragon and Dorat the Perfect Pet? Couldn’t they do something like that?

They can just print a card like this:

“CARDNAME”
0
Artifact
Add one green mana
CARDNAME cannot be in the same deck as Mox Emerald

Maybe this will leave the door open for functional reprints of power 9

How can they print LOTR, Star Wars, or Marvel cards without ownership of those brands?

I’ve listened to the first couple of hours of this podcast and I’ve become more excited about Vintage than I’ve been in a while. I really hope we get to revisit some of these nostalgic formats of the past, but I’m also open to the idea of playing modern Vintage again and embracing what comes next!

@ok-boomer

Yeah. Steve and Kevin’s tiny brains “can’t handle” reviewing so many ugly cards.

Back to watching bitcoin and mtg prices

How do these double sided cards physically work when playing a game of magic? You can’t read the text on the other side. Is there a default side? Very confusing

@botvinik

We see this with formats such as premodern, and the player made ban lists are terrible.

I think people may be focusing on Magic because that’s what they see everyday but this pricing madness is part of a bigger political and economic picture. 1000% price increase isn’t something that is exclusive to magic. Forget about the dealers, collectors, and speculators. There are ways to achieve your goals and obtain what many perceive as valuable

@lienielsen Sylvan is literally in the OP

It’s the only one worth mentioning

I think Rune Scar is better because you just get Time Walk.

With this guy your Time Walk costs 5 mana, assuming you get Will + Walk.

Though I suppose if you get Noxious Revival + Walk it’s exactly the same as Rune Scar with -1 net card

Eh bro’s whatchu mean Vintage isn’t for budget players?

Vintage 4 every1

In all seriousness, with 10-15 proxy Vintage is the cheapest format to get into. And if I didn’t have any money, I’d probably want to play the maximum number of $1 Grafdiggers Cages/Weathered Runestone and then go from there.
