    That was fascinating. It’s bizarre to think that the game I’m playing right now is older than I am.

    The 1999 format sounds like the direction Magic is current going, actually. I once heard someone describe SoI was “all bad cards individually.” Not that I’m complaining – I’d rather face twenty Sinister Concoctions over another Dismember, Doom Blade, and Go for the Throat suite,

    Chanpheng’s story was jaw-dropping. I can’t imagine playing a deck that literally can’t use half its cards, and somehow winning a tournament. Clearly, it was human sacrifice that gave him the victory.

    I like the idea of purely skill-based formats, rather than a format that has deckbuilding as a factor. I wonder why its gone?

    I do have one question: It’s probably broken as hell right now, but was Death Mage, by your estimation, a good card for the environment it was in?
