"Memnarch or the vedalken salvage most of the large machines, leaving us only scraps. Scraps are enough."
Seriously, Magic players are in general entitled complainers, just like gamers and any other major geek culture right now, but the Vintage crowd being like this is surprising to me. It's been growing for the past few years, but man, all I ever hear is people complaining, even now when the format is completely balanced people manage to complain about the meta AND about a deck that isn't even part of it. This is boring.
I feel the same.
To think that after all the printings, rules changes, the scrye rule and restrictions over the past 15 years the one reason I'm thinking of taking a break from the format is the wave of complainers in vintage.
what do blue decks have to answer with mental misstep that we need 4 MM in the format, that blue decks couldn't handle with MM restricted?
What card must be kept in check with Mental Misstep that couldn't be kept in check before, besides A.Recall?
If I may, Chalice was restricted because it was viewed as keeping players from playing their cards in a format where you should be able to play your cards. Misstep is almost in the same boat, but worse, every blue deck runs it.
I'm not for restricting MM, just curious as to what your thoughts are on these points.
