Making Magic: In My Day…

It’s Vintage Masters Preview Week here on DailyMTG.com, so everyone is going to be writing about cards of days gone by. (As will I. I have a preview before today’s article is done.) It got me thinking to the early days of Magic and it dawned on me that most players weren’t playing twenty years ago and might not be aware of many of the things Magic used to do. Today’s column is going to be a little history lesson to shine a light on forgotten aspects of Magic’s past. For the old timers, you get to nod your head. For the youngins, and not-so-youngins, you might get a chance to say “Really? Magic used to do that?”
