I like to play with real cards, so if they haven't been distributed, they shouldn't be legal.

RE: 26 February 2017 Proxy Vintage at Brash Brewing Co [14 players]
Going into the third round, the top four players thought they could double draw in
Hard to tell from this little exert, but if this conversation included players in different matches; they should be warned against future collusion, and if it happens again, possibly dq'ed.
If nothing else, it should be discouraged as cancerous to growing a local scene.
RE: Top 8 January 2017 Power 9 Challenge Stream Recording (Spoilers Inside)
Very fun and interesting to watch, thanks for sharing. I love that style of deck and am now following your steam.
Definitely could notice the loopyness getting to you in round 6 and the last match.
RE: So Many Insane Plays Podcast: Aether Revolt Vintage Set Review
Still listening; I think you set up Spire of Industry very well, and then blew the analysis.
This is, as Steve said, a three to four color pain land, so do colored Eldrazi want to be able to expand from two colors to more? With this, thorns, moxen, tarnished citedel, it might be possible. Mud doesn't care about making colorless mana, but Eldrazi lists might.
Vintage Leagues 'coming' to MTGO
The State of Magic Online was published today, and it made a passing reference to setting up leagues for vintage.
As someone who doesn't have four hour blocks to play, this might help me find time to play. Excited to see how this turns out.

@Soly said in MTGO January 2017 Power 9 Challenge:
I felt for sure the numbers were higher than that. I was one of the shops players, and I played against:
R1: White Eldrazi
R3: White Eldrazi
Was this the winners bracket?
RE: Oh Boy I Can't Wait For VSL Season 6!
And even if you don't think I played optimally (which I concede), I thought that was a pretty clever Doomsday pile. My plays werent optimal, but I dont agree that they were as bad as you suggest.
The play was suboptimal because MTGO is suboptimal, and you probably play it correctly in paper magic
RE: What's your opinion on buying in to Legacy Miracles?
Do you like the play style? Can you sit through 9 rounds of playing control? Do you have good card mechanics for using Top, or are you going to go to time each round?
RE: [AER] Treasure Keeper
Biggest issue is dying while tapped out with Sphere's in play and potentially not being able to cast the free spell.
If it was a Thorn based deck, that would lower the risk, but the value could be drastically reduced.
Edit: Just realized that this is a very slow Blood Braid Elf.
