Since the announcement of the MWL I started thinking about restricted formats and how much I enjoy them. One thing that I miss from MtG is the countless different formats in which to play the game. There’s draft, with it’s myriad different styles and restrictions, but also in Constructed there are so many. From Pauper (where you can only use “common” rarity cards in your deck) to Singleton (every card has to be different).
One idea for an interesting format I had was 1 Core Set + 1 Deluxe Box and you had to play a runner and a corp ID from that Deluxe Box. Another idea I had was No-Influence where you could only use cards within the faction. Admittedly, HB and Shaper may dominate a format like that, but you never know. Another format could be a “Pauper” type in which you could only use 1 and 2 influence cards in your deck. Singleton would also be fun to play.
Does anyone else share this sentiment?
