Restrict sets on older events

Older events need to have newer sets removed just likely have done with newer ones and trials.

Emrukel Corruptions with Dinos is silly.
Broken Ixalan cards when your trying to do silly objectives with Eldrazi targets is not helpful.

    Wait, Ixalan cards are more of a problem than having Olivia and Piggy and Ulrich running around all over the place?  :wink:

    They won't restrict legacy events to older sets because as players start out, legacy events are the best way to pick up cards from sets that are out of standard.  (Free boosters only drop cards from standard-legal sets, since those are supposed to be the sets with the greatest current utility.)  Effectively locking new players out of events (or at least making them completely miserable) isn't a great business model if you want to attract and retain new blood.  Standard-legal cards should be usable in all events.

    Also, there are enough complaints about older events being "stale" that I doubt telling players, "not only are you getting the same events from two years ago, you're going to be doing them with the same cards!" will really improve things.

    The issue with EC is more that the nodes themselves want you to do things that are at odds with what the colors are good at, and the blue node is probably the trickiest to build for.  (Green is the creature color, but the RG node wants exactly two werewolves.  White likes supports, but the WB node doesn't.  Blue really likes spells, but its node restricts them.)  But players making decks to blast out wins while ignoring secondaries is hardly unique to Legacy events.  (As a suggestion, if you're having trouble with creatures in the blue node, Tezz2 and Dovin both provide support-based control or removal options.)

    I know how to combat the issues.
    Just annoys me when I play against Nicol Bolas in a SOI event with his first ability when I'm meant to be playing only TWO werewolves....oh and hes playing dinos or some other cards that just not meant to ever be in the game together.

    But then again this is an app thats had two developers and they dont really get the more of the game itself. No story mode for new players, so no help with cards or levelling PWs. The daily training ground hasn't been changed since it came in and that is a grind that could be made much better.
    They know money and thats why the vault is full of things
