Hello there guys, I'm new to this forum but a long time magic player.  Specifically in the Vintage and Legacy formats.  Looks like most of the posts in here are many years old.  Do you guys still play vintage (Type 1)?

I didn't see any vintage decks with power cards when I was clicking around.  Do you guys play tier 1 powered vintage decks, or when you say Vintage do you just mean cards that are too old to be run in standard/extended and a small handfull of restricted cards?  Basically more casual play type of Vintage?

Did you guys see that Brainstorm is getting restricted?  I think they are a bit crazy for that one.  What are your thoughts?

I'm a magic player of old, but I haven't played in years.  I've still got all my old decks together, but nobody to play with.  Can't say that any Magic gets played around here anymore, there's just a few of us left that were friends of Helva's from other places.  Feel free to join us in the lounge.  Mind the cat, she bites.

Hi there! Sorry, I haven't been too diligent in monitoring my own forum.

I still play Vintage but not as much as I used to. Portland, OR, where I am doesn't have many events but I've played some unsanctioned Vintage in Seattle. I even got to lose to Randy Beuhler in one match---but at least I took him to three games.

I usually play Control Slaver but I'd switched over to Grow-A-Tog before they restricted Brainstorm and Gush and most other cheap card drawing. I agree, I don't see that Brainstorm needed to be restricted. I certainly don't think that card is unbalanced in Vintage.

He lives!  How are things?  I'd invite you over to the lounge as well, but it would be kinda silly to invite you to your own lounge.

How are Helva and the girls? Is this Sonja's last summer before school?

Things are good! Actually Sonja's going into third grade and Sera's going into first grade. Helva's going to get her life back!
