    Re: Is Wizards trying to kill off Legacy?

    Wizards can't do anything right. They can't make Legacy fail and they can't make Legacy grow.

    Re: Is Wizards trying to kill off Legacy?

    Doug Linn recently wrote a (paid) article about this very topic:

    Insider: Playing Maze of Ith in Modern (and why Wizards wants Modern to kill Legacy)

    Stirring up a fair amount of discussion over at Quiet Speculation, though it can't really add much to the convo here since it's an Insider article.

    Bah, fuck that. Why do I want to pay money to hear about some opinions on Modern?

    I dunno, I vastly prefer the taste of Pepsi to Dew. Dew tastes like piss to me.

    You know what pee tastes like? >^,^<

    Anyhow, I don't think wizards is trying to kill off legacy, anything that gets people to play their game doesn't sound bad at all, even if its 99% secondary market, exceptions being that 1 card that comes out every set or two that see's a push in legacy.

    It's cool. We've all been there.

    Of course, I didn't drink pee. I just slept with a chick that looks like a horse, which is arguably worse.

    EDIT: oh, right, the actual topic at hand. Wizards doesn't have to try and kill off Legacy. It's going to happen on it's own.

    Pretty much like what happened to Vintage?

    Though you have to admit, WotC DID pull the plug on Extended. Tell me how for about three months, Super Jace and SFM were simultaneously banned in Standard and Modern but legal in Extended. It took them another three months to realize that Extended was still a format and only then the mentioned cards above were banned.

    Though WotC killing Legacy is unlikely. As long as SCG is running Legacy with Standard opens, it won't happen.
    I am convinced that WotC is "dumbing" the game because of all the stupid posts they come across on MTG-related forums

    Exactly. Of course, Vintage was a way shittier format, but the concept is the same. Skyrocketing prices will lead to a crash (not in card prices, but in player numbers).

    Though you have to admit, WotC DID pull the plug on Extended. Tell me how for about three months, Super Jace and SFM were simultaneously banned in Standard and Modern but legal in Extended.

    To be fair, everyone else forgot extended was a format too. I'd be very, very surprised if Extended was even close to where Vintage Restricted was a decade ago; one area of the country where people play the format regularly (ie, weekly four round tournaments).

    Starcity is probably the reason Legacy has been able to keep going as long as it has. With them running the opens and being such a huge store, getting legacy cards is easy, despite how expensive they are. Eventually, interest is going to crash and they'll switch over to modern. Modern is what, six months old? Eight? It's still emerging from infancy and settling down after creation and the multiple rounds of bannings. Once players see that it's stable, they'll start playing it. Six months ago I said Legacy would be alive for two more years, so now it's got about 18 months left.

    I was three days off and couldn't follow or add something to the discussion but what I've read so far makes me questioning if this forum would be better off if certain people would refrain posting in threads. Seriously, have you never be taught of basic manners for discussions, namely keeping out flames and other insults? Not to speak of the highly arrogating act to add the phrase in the title of the thread. whoever that was, but you sir are definitely overbearing with your 'authority'. Sure it's the internet and I know that you generally have to deal with the scum of humankind and that people tend to neglect the aforementioned 'manners' but this is getting worse and worse and this thread is a great example for this.

    Funny how people only remember Delver, Jace and Snapcaster, but forget Wild Nacatl, Green Sun's Zenith, Qasali Pridemage, Steppe Lynx, Goblin Guide, Thoughtseize, Past in Flames, the new sword cycle, faithless looting, bloodghast, liliana of the veil, and other non blue cards.

    See, Bardo, that's why this thread deserved Mish-Mash. If only the posters had had the good sense to keep talking about the taste of pee.

    Erdvermampfa, I believe you when you say you didn't mean this to be a conspiracy thread, and I also believe that you intended for it to produce intelligent, polite discussion. Neither fact changes that your attempt in said directions was a truly astounding failure in every possible meaning of the word. If this thread were a deck, it would be Legacy Trix. If it were a format, it would be Overextended. If it were a card, it would be Karona, False God.
