Eternal Format!

February 10, 2011

Welcome, to my new blog dedicated to the Eternal Format of Legacy. For those of you unfamiliar with the Legacy format, let me give you a brief rundown on how it works.

Legacy is a “Sanctioned Format” under which all sets in Magic The Gathering are legal with the exception of a few prohibited sets and or cards. Legacy is an offshoot format of Vintage a.k.a Type 1.

Legacy offers up a new and exciting way for a player to play, the bounds of creativity and home brewing are limitless in fact.

With access to cards from Beta to the current block, players conceive decks under the guidelines of a banned list. The Banned list is only limited to Legacy as they are cards allowed strictly in the Vintage format.

This is the current banned list that runs the Meta Game in legacy. this list is updated as needed usually due to some sort of broken or overpowered card interaction from new to old sets. with the exception of the Ante cards which were used in the beginning of magic as sort of a gambling device to play the game.

The following cards are banned in Legacy tournaments:

Amulet of Quoz
Ancestral Recall
Bazaar of Baghdad
Black Lotus
Black Vise
