Unsanctioned Legacy & Vintage Events – Why We Can Have Nice Things by Alex Gershaw

Wizards released a clarification on the “replacement” card issue, so my article of yesterday is almost completely irrelevant, except for the shameless advertising of Northern League at the end and how we Eternal players actually need to support Modern.

You can find Wizards clarification post here – On Proxies, Policy, and Communication

In this clarification Elaine Chase states that in DCI sanctioned events all cards must be real, counterfeits will be dealt with swiftly and with much prejudice and they defined a new term.

Playtest card – A playtest card is most commonly a basic land with the name of a different card written on it with a marker, and then said – “Wizards of the Coast has no desire to police playtest cards made for personal, non-commercial use, even if that usage takes place in a store.”

Which lead to one more question, does this mean that unsanctioned, playtest replaced events can go ahead in store?

does this mean that unsanctioned, playtest replaced events can go ahead in store

So as per my last article, what does this mean to you?

If you got mad that you’d never be able to try out Legacy or even Vintage, it’s time to “put up or shut up”, give it a go before someone somewhere makes a decision to stop you. Get some friends together, go to your local gaming store with a stack of basics and just jam some games of Vintage and Legacy.

I worry that people said “I’ll never be able to play Vintage (or Legacy) now” after the announcement, but had no real want to actually get into the format – so I’m calling you out. Join us, sleeve up some scribbled on basics and play some super sweet eternal formats.

Rules if you want this kind of event – it must not be sanctioned, all replacements must be playtest cards.

Thanks for reading,
