    "All cards not legal in Vintage (Restricted cards are legal)"

    Perhaps. Anything actually banned in Vintage is banned for one of the reasons above, except the set of cards that were banned for...

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Glancing at the rules, we should probably update this a bit. There's a new online-only set of cards this week, which we agreed last season aren't legal, but this isn't clearly reflected in this ban...

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    When Lodestone is in play, Asthereal can't cast Mayor, so you can just make lots of bugs and get arbitrarily high loyalty before winning. Should stay 6-0 in your favor.

    I think you're right on the...

    Reeplcheep caught that one. Magus means Needle doesn't get counters, so while you can Stomp it OTD, you can't then follow with a creature.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    On the other hand, WoP vs maxx doesn't look right to me. Attacking with Tar Pit costs 3 counters (plus a turn of counter making), Casting Rider costs 2 counters (plus a turn of counter making). Grist...

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Disagree, WoP can cast Drake on turn 4, as Reef can activate itself and Pit contributes a mana. So WoP has 15 and wins if Drake attacks, allowing time to murder Drake.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Casting Giant under Golem would require sacrificing Vein, at which point you can trade profitably. 3-3, I think.

    It looks like you're using the mana from a single Hickory Woodlot 3 times. When you can only make 1 Saga token:

    Woodlot | Bog
    Saga, Mayor | Rankle (Discard Spirit and Ramunap) (20-17)

    Sorry one more.





    Again, Reep is happy to trade Rootwalla for Magus, he won't get VV, but a 1/1 would win, so he can attack with his 3/1. 6-0 Reep?

    Sorry changed my mind on this one to 4-1 in my favour. If I drop Spirit turn 2 OTP, it's only 20-16, I can trade Rootwalla then block Vengevine indefinitely while Rankle races. OTD it's 20-8 when...

    I think you might?

    What am I missing? You play Welder, I name Neonate, you play Neonate, I name Welder. There doesn't appear to be a way to have Welder in play and Titan in the grave.

    "What's written on the typeline" isn't really a game concept, oracle text is always what matters. As Grist is a creature during deckbuilding, I think any sensible definition will have it legal.
