Because the last National Championships are in the same weekend of this Master, I guess it's not needed to do another T2 Master for practicing purposes. The Time Spiral pre-release is a weekend after so there probably won't be a patch yet.

We already plan to hold a Standard with Time Spiral Invitational in the first Sunday after the Time Spiral release events: October 15.

So what format to do for the Sunday, September 17 Master in 3 weeks?

Current Standard
Haven't had enough of Standard yet? Also want to try your hands on the latest Top 8 Nationals Decks?

9ED/RAV/GPT/DIS/CSP Constructed
Standard without Kamigawa Block. An experiment and preparation to the new T2. What cards from 9th, Ravnica Block and Coldsnap will shine now that Kamigawa Block leaves? This could provide nice insights and can prepare strategies from which it will be easy to simply add fitting Time Spiral cards later to make a good functioning deck for the new T2.

Legacy or Vintage
"OMG, Magic-League finally realizes these formats exists too?" You can vote for it now... I would say Legacy gets precedence, because we had a Vintage Master on August 6. But you get to vote.

Extended
Same story. A long neglected format during the "T2 Summer", although some interesting sets have appeared since the PTQ season. I think Extended will only become "relevant" for the Pro Tour wannabees in like January when the Extended PTQ season will start.

Disclaimer: As with most Internet polls, the result of this poll might not be taken seriously by the Calandar-authorities.

Current Type2 (just because it's a GREAT format - Nats doesn't matter).

That Pseudo-format (t2 with no Kami block) is kinda weird.

Or Legacy would be nice too.

The most important format is Non-Kamigawa T2. CSP 9th, Rav Block is a great idea.

No chance of a sealed master with a top 8 draft?

The 2nd choice will be a good place to see where t2 stands before TS rotates in. If you want a master with meaningul results that will help Magic-League'ers get a head start on deck construction, thats the best to start

I would really wan't t2 but i saw it's so behind in the votes it's not worth voting for it. I voted 9ED/RAV/GPT/DIS/CSP Constructed to try and prevent extended from winning

There's only 2 decks that are 9th/Rav block/CS already.
one is modified Firemane control and the other, well I won't tell you about that one. It will provide opputunity for new archetypes and probably make for a darn fun master. Vore loses it's most important bounce(eye of nowhere) as well as meloku in some builds and any dragons it may have in the sb.
