Deck Description

Card pool for the "93-94 Old School" Magic format. Only sets printed between those dates are legal, no "ante" cards and the restricted list. I was inspired to try this format out after the recent "GOAT Magic" video from MTGGoldfish. It's a fantastic video that I highly recommend. Looked like a Hell of a lot of fun (if you proxy out the cards, not actually buy them, unless you are independently wealthy).

I started working on this as a database just for cards in the format so my friends and I could start building our own decks. Since it's not a WOTC supported format, rules are not air-tight, such as in the case of "Strip Mine". One rule set (the U.K. version I believe) had it restricted, while the American version did not. I'm going with the latter because Murrica! and because I love land-destruction.

Thoughts on the format so far: For the love of Richard Garfield, proxy this out, do not attempt to buy it unless your last name is McDuck. Using "Black Lotus" to play "Underworld Dreams" on turn one, then passing to your opponent to his first turn is dirty, dirty, awful and funny. Great as a pallet-cleanser between tournaments, rainy days, etc. Meant to be casual, fun between friends, not competitive. I plan on making several decks and keeping them in a box to break out whenever I feel like good stupid fun.

(Sets entered so far):
The Dark
Arabian Nights
Fallen Empires

(Sets needed to enter):
Book Series (Arena and Sewers of Estark)

How to Play

Turn 1: Cast "Black Lotus", sacrifice it for three red mana, cast "Blood Moon". Wait until your opponent realizes that no one uses basic lands in their deck lists. Put your hands up in a blocking move so your opponent can't get his hands around your throat. Figure out the rest as you go.

Thanks, I built an entirely proxied cube and it was a lot of fun. I wanted to build more constructed (proxy) decks for my friends and I to play with, but finding lists was next to impossible.

Yeah, I'd also, wish for a print proxy edition, it would make my evolution projects easier.
