Hmm .. I guess Vintage is the starting point for this format?  If I have to have real cards I think I'm probably going to lose to something not a million miles from this:

Shards - Tezzeret the Seeker
Mirage - Mystical Tutor
Urza's Legacy - Tinker
10th - Hurkyl's Recall
Nemesis - Masacre
Legends - Mana Drain
Alpha, Beta, Unlimited, Revised - Ancestral Recall, Mox Sapphire, Black Lotus, Time Vault
Alliances - Force of Will
Worldwake - Jace, the Mind Sculptor
Mirrodin - Thirst for Knowledge
Onslaught - Polluted Delta
Urza's Saga - Yawgmoth's Will
Lorwyn - Ingot Chewer
5th - Brainstorm
Scourge - Tendrils of Agony
Mercadian Masques - Brainstorm
Planar Chaos - Extirpate
Visions - Vampiric Tutor
6th - Vampiric Tutor
Ice Age - Mystic Remora
M11 - Voltaic Key
4th - Red Elemental Blast
Arabian Nights - Library of Alexandria
Guildpact - Steam Vents
Mirrodin Beseiged - Blightsteel Colossus
Champions of Kamigawa - Sensei's Divining Top
Antiquities - Hurkyl's Recall
Ravnica - Watery Grave
Dissension - Breeding Pool
Zendikar - Scalding Tarn

Ice Age - Brainstorm 

Tempest - Dark Ritual (32 sets)

12 other sets - 10 Island, 1 Swamp, 1 Mountain

(44 sets)

+ 27 other cards

Other than you have allocated a card for revised which you can't have, you get the idea. Do you have an alpha or beta mox or lotus to use?
In all reality, I think people won't be using much alpha or beta crazy cards cos they don't own them. We'll see a few unlimited things, moxes etc., but I doubt anyone will run three bits of power... Also, in a 72 card deck, how often will you have a blitz out turn one hand?

I did think it'd be funny to play three black lotus, two channel and lots of fireballs.... If I had the cards
Sounds like a decent idea, I might be convinced to dig out the beta swamp i have lying around ;). One question.. Why mandate no foils? Not that i mind, but it seems like a weird constraint
It was an aesthetic thing in my mind... I suppose there's no real reason except that I had this purist idea of having one "proper" card from each set. Silly I guess, but sometimes silly serves to add atmosphere.

Your mana base is awful, lol.

And no portal cards, heh.


Wasn't that Black Lotus, channel and fireball my idea?

The more I think of this, the more I like it.

Have you posted it else were?

It is on a few forums! :) And yes, it was your idea to do it here, but I'm not about to credit 'Jason Savage' for Channel-Fireball... ;)

I just noticed you have Haunted Cadaver up for £100! :) I'll sell you some for £50. Bargain. How many do you want? You'll make a killing...
