    Yeah, that's what I read from "no additional bannings". I also thought it would have been interesting to unban everything for Storm Season. It's not like Lotus into Lab Maniac would have been legal anyway. Still, this is just a slightly different conclusion. I could lament what is lost (and did a little), but that just means new things can shine.

    I think we're locked in on the same Legacy banlist as through out this season, which is a bit different from how we might have done it, but not a problem (not that you were saying it was).

    what bothers me is that we've played through the entire block without any bannings. So why now? :)

    Yes, we play with the Legacy banning list. Reason: Blackmail, Ghost Quarter, ...
    They're all possible now. Not just one that you can build around. You can encounter every round-breaker in the same round.
    There's no way you can meta against all of them, so you'd have to choose. That feels wrong.

    Also, no additional bannings, and I already started the round, so by all means play Ensnaring Bridge.

    Alpha isn't an official block. I perhaps should have clarified, but were playing everything from Mirage block onwards.
    I would like to skip the Ice Age block, because the official version uses cards that were released over a decade apart, and that feels dumb.

    But you're right about the brokenness of certain cards in certain blocks.

    I was going to play what seemed the most broken to me: ghost quarter deck. Guess I will have to find something else :)

    I'm fine skipping ice age block, but we should definitely clarify that now (I had been assuming it was an option).

    That's a good point. I did not clarify this at the opening of the round, so if someone enters with an Ice Age deck, I guess it should be okay.
    I don't think anyone will want to though, because there aren't many great cards in it, and the ones that are good are banned.
