Vintage MTG

Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

Here at MTG Realm we play a lot of different Magic: the Gathering formats - namely Standard (our fav) where there is plentiful access to stock at MTG Mint Card, Commander, Modern, and of course casual kitchen table formats where almost anything can go.  We did not however touch Vintage or Legacy - perhaps because we did not get into the game until Lorwyn block, perhaps it was a budget thingy - we don't know.  Anywhoos - it certainly doe not detract from our appreciation for these formats one bit.  For a run-down of all sanctioned format, check out this mothersite pageToday's post is all about Vintage / Legacy news - let's go -

If you play Magic: the Gathering Online, you'll want to check the mothersite announcement from last week -
