I played legacy for about five or six years before coming over to EDH. I still follow legacy closely, so I can tell you with some degree of confidence that there is a lot less variance in the format than the cardpool of that size would have you believe. The current tier one decks are either some form of aggro-prison (Death & Taxes, Eldrazi), blazing fast combo (BR Reanimator and to a lesser extent, Infect) and control (Miracles). Most decks that play blue run what has come to be known as the "cantrip cartel" (brainstorm, ponder, sometimes sensei's divining top) or are tuned to beat those decks with cards like chalice of the void. You'll most likely run into someone playing one of the many flavors of Delver-based tempo as well, with a sprinking of stuff like storm, dredge and everyone's favorite budget option: burn. Stastics have born out that the more rounds in the event, the better the decks running blue perform, as they run the best cards to improve consistency. Sure, Eldrazi and D&T and the rest steal the whole show from time to time, but you've got a better chance against the field if yiu run brainstorm and friends.

Carthain - I make a distinction between the competitive format generally referred to as Legacy and the more casual players who construct decks using that cardpool. I don't know if I've ever been to a shop that has a casual legacy or vintage night.

If you people socialize in real life the same way you post on this forum, I would imagine the reason you can't find games that you enjoy is because you are toxic individuals. /micdrop /unsubscribe
