Quote from WorstBandNameEverLegacy tomorrow, 4-6-2013, in Fords, NJ at 2 pm. We have had 15+ people the past 2 or 3 weeks.
Quote from StardustWhat happens when those customers who own non-Modern cards become a small minority? Let's say 10 or 15 years down the road, assuming the game stays healthy and growing, only 1% of players really own many Legacy cards of value. That's probably pretty close to accurate. Doesn't it make more sense to have an "Eternal" format where they can control the supply and profit from reprints as well as new sets? Financially speaking, Modern (or something like it) is a no brainer to fill that role you're talking about.
Quote from WorstBandNameEverWe had 15 players this Saturday at our local legacy event. A few new players to the shop and some regulars could not make it there.
Quote from patomalucoA format that does not change isn't fun....
Wizards realized that and that's why they make this bans and that's also why they print crazy powerful cards in standard that have the power to change modern also.
aka Snapcaster, GoST, Delver, Thundermaw, Deathrite Shaman, Lingering Souls, Huntmaster of the Fells
Quote from bollskisThe weekend after these had great showings, we put 5 decks into day 2, none into top 8. Clearly, better players are migrating towards opposite ends of the spectrum.
The deck to keep an eye on is Willy Edels. Same player who played Jund to top 1 in modern a few weeks ago, he got top 30 or so this week, had some mana screw, but played a very aggressive lineup that boarded into the classic midrange build. I see that as the way to go, so we can steal games, and then play as we need to g2 & 3.
Quote from DarkRitualI haven't played too many games against the current versions of UWR Midrange, but it would seem to me like it's going to be slower than regular aggro so you should be able to get something like Huntmaster on the table fast enough to defend against GoST. I'm sure there are more things to worry about than just that card though.
