I guess it´s a casual format for people that are already playing Standard?
I think Brawl is meant to be an entry format for casuals that is affordable and provides a gateway into Standard. Back in the day rookies would play 60 card casual (with mostly newer cards) and often tune their decks for FNM after they got a little experience. MTG currently lacks a casual format that feeds into Standard like this.
Not sure how it will do. I'm not really the target.
as the message finally sinks in that successful eternal formats cost and that Christmas comes once a year..
Pauper seems to be taking off - and it's unlikely tier-1 decks will ever hit Standard level prices (much less come even close to Modern prices).
Pauper is less gimmicky than TL (and has no affordable alternative, where TL was competing with EDH). Pauper lacks Frontiers issues too, with a huge cardpool and diverse archetypes. Unless WotC from nds a way to sabotage it, Pauper will be the Eternal format of the future.
A supply of new players who have not been sheltered from the "evils" of combo, control, LD, and prison.
More "unfun" cards entering the cardpool. Legacy is (near) overrun with aggro-control decks (midrange and tempo). Pure control decks are rare, prison only exists in aggro or combo hybrid builds, and linear aggro has been reduced to only Burn.
'They' was used as a gender-neutral singular pronoun throughout most of the modern English language. It was the late 19th century when a group of English aristocrats created "prescriptive grammar" in attempt to rewrite the rules of the language (and make English more like Latin).
The safest thing to buy would be the thing that has just been reprinted/announced. These are likely going g to be at a low point price-wise, anc are the least likely to be reprinted again in the next year or so.
The cards you guys listed are perhaps the most "due" for a reprint (and a price plunge), and the least safe to buy or hold.
Now that CFB is supporting Paper Pauper with the mtgo cardpool, perhaps paper Pauper is becoming less casual and closer to being officially sanctioned?
I do find it ironic that people think a banned list in inappropriate in casual when all races, mythics, and uncommon are being effectively banned, back in the day (before EDH) most people I knew respected the Vintage B&R list for 60 card casual (eg, no multiple Sol Rings). Only a few casual players seemed interested in "anything goes".
For me the most important thing they could do to improve MTG is to support Legacy. This means addressing the RL, as well as changing Standard so new players are no longer coddled and protected from "unfun" interactions.
Also, make Pauper (Legacy-Lite) a sanctioned and supported format too.
I don't mean to be spiteful, Colt. I am (foolishly?) holding out for a slim hope that WotC addresses the RL this year. Seems lime the time to do it. I don't want to go into detail and derail your thread - but I am trying to be positive, not negative.
Also, I think think you were goading us by asking for exactly 10 cards! At least I didn't say P9 + Library.
