    Force gives a dead Misstep a function (pitch fodder), and that might make it a bit too much.

    For round 1, Misstep proved to not be a serious issue. It was solid, and hosed my deck rather well, but it wasn't dominating.
    Let's see what round 2 does, and after that we can give it the axe if we like.
    Actually, if we decide to go for the progressive banning idea, it'll probably get the axe soon anyway.

    Thanks. I'll keep it in mind. Storage lands are indeed a resource we don't want to lose.

    Well, my point on the Legacy Banned list is that if we aren't starting with that, you need to Ban most of the Vintage Restricted list for obvious reasons.

    Cavern of Souls and Leyline of Lifeforce are technically counterplay for Mental Misstep, and Cavern itself is quite playable anyways.

    @asthreal

    Could you maybe update the banned list post with cards that are being considered for banning or are in fact being banned for round 2? That way we can at least keep track of them because we now have like 5 pages of discussion on it and that will only grow.

    Also, hope you saw my post about keeping round decklists in op or at least a link to where you post them.

    As for misstep, it has to be banned here for the same reason it was banned in legacy. It will warp the format, probably even more so here because this format is arguably more heavily reliant on 1cmc cards than legacy. One round of 28 decks is a really poor representation of the format. Hell, there was 0 removal, 0 chalice of the voids, and 0 lionís eye diamonds, all cards that I expect to be played in this format.

    Thanks

    SEASON 1, ROUND 2 of Legacy FOUR CARD BLIND has started!

    I have PM'ed myself my deck for the round.
    So... you can all start PM'ing me your submission for the second round.

    DEADLINE: Wednesday the 27th of February, at 6:00AM Central European Time. (That's my time. Just send me the deck Tuesday evening latest, you'll be fine).

    PLEASE NOTE:
    - The way you send your deck to me matters. Please send it in the way described below, so it doesn't cost me an hour of editing before I can post all the decks.
    Please send your deck as follows: Loam Lion, Loam Lion, Pithing Needle, Cavern of Souls (so not above eachother), with your Username and 4CB S01R02 in the topic.
    - The updated banned list (you'll find it in the second post). I have created a combined banned list with all relevant cards from the Legacy list, plus a number of cards that break the format.
    Most important changes: Mental Misstep is unbanned (it already was, but I forgot to mention it in the second post). Banned are The Rack, Cabal Therapy and Blackmail.
    Yes, the list is open for discussion. Misstep is on the watch list. So are LED, Eureka, Force of Will and Misthollow Griffin.

    After the deadline has passed, I will post all decks on the forum here, and you can start puzzling out your scores.

    If you have any questions, please read the first two posts of this thread first. If you can't find the answer there, drop a message here. We'll answer a.s.a.p.

    Happy deck designing everybody!

    ABOUT ROUND ONE:
    Not everybody has posted their scores yet. Please do so this weekend, so I can post scores and update standings before the deadline for round 2.
