I usually just play online casually through either Cockatrice or the Duels of the Planeswalkers series. As of recently I can also sometimes be found on MTGO. I also like limited and attend most prerelease events, where I got the bulk of my paper cards.
Hit me up if you like to play or want to trade stuff on MTGO although my collection there is rather limited. If you have some free ones to give away though, I'm looking to expand my collection without paying too much. :)
Also, have a good article on building manabases, you're welcome.

Well, the Multiverse is a big place after all. Maybe Bolas just didn't touch down on Innistrad yet.

As I wrote before, I like the change to tuck as it suits my play style and the style I like to build EDH decks in.
That being said, the point of EDH having grown further than the creators ever thought is probably the main issue.
This makes me think that there might be a solution in having a separate set of rules - one for the style they like to play, and one for the style the now outcrying crowd likes to play. Let's call them Casual and Competitive for the sake of argument. Then in Casual they implement the tuck change and ban cards that take the fun out of the game like Armageddon etc and in Competitive it's basically "anything goes".

I personally like the change a lot for the style of Commander I like to play. In my home playgroup, we already ruled it so you could put the Commander on top of your library instead of anywhere else in it. Then again, only one of the decks ran a single tuck effect.
I also run pretty much no creature tutors in the lot of my EDH decks (with some flavor exceptions) and I even considered putting something like Green Sun's Zenith in some of them for the sole reason of getting my Commander back if it's tucked when playing in an external environment. (!)
That being said, I think there might be a solution to all this: the RC simply makes 2 sets of rules. One for their preferred casual style and one for a competitive environment. In the casual rules they ban cards like Armageddon etc and implement the tuck change and in the competitive environment it's basically "anything goes".
