Having been on the other side of this in a previous P9 challenge, I must admit it was originally somewhat disheartening to watch the replay and discover that I was facing down 2 players, plus a third over Skype.

That said, I know that I personally got a lot out of being able to re-watch that match from my opponent's point of view; to hear the considerations of his lines, see what he had, and especially to hear the debate between different lines. It was a wealth of valuable information that you just cannot get anywhere else. I was able to easily pick out my (very) loose plays, see where I had my windows, and when they closed. I lost the match, but was able to get a heck of a return on that loss.

My two cents: I definitely wouldn't want to see an end to the way that Vintage has been streamed recently -- the community, entertainment and educational value provided is far and away worth more than the occasional feelbads.

Gifts, because I can't quit Mana Drain, no matter how unplayable it gets.

I've just consulted the comp rules, and it seems a little uncivilized... but if I'm understanding correctly, you can actually just pay mana for phyrexian costs.

@griselbrother It's just Wizards pushing the gaudy silver artifact frame for brand recognition!

Classic angle shot. Trick the competition into showing up on the wrong day.

Planeswalker legend rule sends the "used" one to the graveyard, new titan token brings a now-refreshed Saheeli back from the yard.
