    I used to play every other week at the wizard's of the coast stores. I was horrible but it was balst. I finaly buil a competitive deck, but my grandma wouldn't let me go play (miserly old woman, wouldn't pay the fee:mad:!). I think that was my last chance to ever play as the back romm closed a month later. then the whole bloody store closed, tragic story indeed.

    but that brings me to my question. I really wanted to join these POP events but can't play due to teh fact they banned all the wizard's cards.

    why the **** did they ban them? they're cutting off their audience. of course this is comming from a disgruntled teenager, so I guess take it with a pinch of salt.

    There are many reasons that can't all be gone into here.

    In short:

    New players would be disadvantaged to have to have access to sets long out of print
    Organized Play is funded by card sales. Sets that are more than two years old do not generate any revenue anymore.
