Mercadian Masques ---> Onslaught

No Core sets. Thoughts?

Why just Onslight and no Legions and Scourge. If you are referring to Onslaugt block it does not make much difference. The card pool for this proposal is from 1 set to one block bigger than a T2 cardpool would be. I believe for a format to be worth it in terms of any adjusted grouping of older cards like the sets listed then there needs to be a slightly bigger card pool.
And Now for my Suggestion:
Making Over Extended or Extended Plus a more played format on ML would be nice though imo. They both have about the same card pool as Modern now does but they have less extensive bans allowing for a better meta, better feelings about it by players, and more deck possibilities. I think it would be awesome if ML just used the mtgoverextended site as a starting point and banned and unbanned as really needed in a manner as was done there.

I like the idea, but the format would need more sets. Urza's block should be added to the list of sets. Testing would ensue so there would be bannings and/or restrictions in place, though I don't think there would be much with such a small pool compared to other formats (except standard, of course). The idea has a lot of merit and I think I would enjoy a fresh format.

Mirrodin and up are in Modern. There are a LOT of MM to ON card that just aren't good enough for Legacy. I think Urza's Saga's power level is just too high and would make the format too degenerate.
