I just noticed that MTG Vault was recently hacked and they lost all data. Not only loosing the data but passwords and email addresses were stolen. So if you were registered with MTG Vault it is advisable that you start to change your password if you have used it anywhere else with your email address. This is a huge shame and sucks for all. 

I’m sad to have lost MTG Vault as they stated they will not be restoring the site. I really liked the simplicity and ease of use. So thanks for a cool site and service and I’m sorry it had to end in such a malicious way. 

With that said I’m will be looking for a new place to post deck lists to share. Any suggestions out there? Off the top of my head I know that Essential Magic has a free way to do this, but I’ve never created an account with them. So please let me know what works for you.
