I disagree that that would be 'phasing out' legacy at all
'Only want to resist'. What? Me disagreeing with you does not mean 'I don't want to walk down this road', it's just that I think you over-evaluate the ability of Wizards to control what formats are played.
The control that Wizards has is sanctioning vs not sanctioning events, and printing cards for a certain format versus not doing so.
For instance Modern.
Wizards has been heavily pushing that the last couple years.
You claim that WotC has zero control over it. It would be more accurate to say that WotC has extremely little control over it, because they do control Grand Prixs and they can reduce the number of them. Your entire argument is based on squashing mine with hyperbole. And you did it twice.
Wizards have absolutely **zero** control over it. I disagree that that would be 'phasing out' legacy **at all**
@Waterseas I know, I could have sworn that there were explicit rules for that if not in the CR then at least in the MTR. But it looks like you have to infer if from the rule that lets you get the Oracle text of a card that you can uniquely identify.
Did you look at the rule reference in diego's answer?
> The official text of any card is the Oracle text corresponding to the name of the card. Players have the right to request access to the official wording of a card only if they can uniquely identify that card, although the card does not necessarily have to be identified by name. That request will be honored if logistically possible.
You know, now that I look, the actual bullet point for derived information is "Game Rules, Tournament Policy, Oracle content and any other official information pertaining to the current tournament. Cards are considered to have their Oracle text printed on them. "
> Derived information is information to which all players are entitled access, but opponents are not obliged to assist in determining and may require some skill or calculation to determine
