Magic: the Gathering in the UK

I loved Innistrad.  I believed Maro when he said New World Order made things better for experienced players too and used Innistrad as an example.

Then Modern Masters came out and despite having to include a bunch of rares and only being allowed cards from Mirrodin to Shards it was way better than anything we've seen since Innistrad, and most of what came before, too.

It will be minimum one year until the next Modern Masters.

So, my idea is, let's make our own Modern Masters.

Random ideas that are very much half formed:

* 6 of each of 60 commons, 3 of each of 60 uncommons, 2 of each of 50 rares, 1 of each of 10 mythics is 650 cards.

* Use old cards, pre-Mirrodin, for spell-based funtimes and novelty even for players that have been playing for a while.

* Invent cards where necessary to fill holes.

* Some possible seeded archetypes: free spell necro, ug madness, gro, draw-go, astral slide, reanimator, artifact control, mill, auras, tokens, birthing pod, pox, sacrifice, prison, wizard tribal.

* Possibly include a lot of Legacy playables and call it "Legacy Masters".  What wizards would print if they said fuck it to the secondary market and the reserve list and tried to support legacy via a "Masters" release.

What do you think?  Interested in being on the development team?  Could make for some cheap Tuesday nights during the long reign of M14* ...

* = Bit of a cheap shot.  I've actually really enjoyed 3 of the last 4 core set drafts.

Highly! I'm pretty sure he's naive if he thinks he is going to put a stop to New World Order and Magic being bigger than it has ever been. Would be nice if we got a Modern Masters style product once or twice a year though. Super-Expert-Level or something.

Lots of feedback from last night's playtest on the Trello ... bit.ly/legacy-masters-trello

Legacy Masters draft at the County today at 3.30pm-ish after the morning prerelease. Come along!

Anyone going to the County tomorrow want to turn up at 12 for some Legacy Masters? The M14 is at 2
LMA at 7. Come on down!

How was the most recent LMA playtest? More tomorrow?

I did have a thought about the slide deck, as it's uncommon and that deck just doesn't do anything without the 2 enchantments is it not worth moving them to common or just dropping the deck?

We had pretty much decided to drop Astral Slide to common already. Lightning Rift a bit too dangerous at common.

I didn't play yesterday, but we got some good games in on Saturday, all the talk is on the Trello board.

I imagine there will be an updated version to draft on Tuesday.

Yes, draft on Tuesday. I'd like to do one at 5pm with anyone that can make it for then and then the real one at 7.

We'll be finalizing the list for Tuesday on http://bit.ly/legacy-masters-trello
