    @smmenen
    I think people don't like to acknowledge shops. If they did they would probably play it and be less biased against the archetype.

    True.

    I also think that it's also about salience. When PO wins a tournament, it's a more salient and prominent accomplishment. When Shops wins a tournament, I suppose that is "as expected," and fades into the background, narratively speaking.

    I try to keep myself honest when evaluating what is actually the 'best deck,' by hewing to the facts. True, those facts can be arranged in different configurations depending on criteria, but I think a holistic POV shows that Shops, not PO, was really the best deck of 2018.

    @smmenen I understand that you approached this by the numbers but Paradoxical Outcome was printed late 2016. The fact that an entire deck exists around it and it is competing with one of the best deck of all time should be part of your consideration.

    I don't really understand your point here. Why should the fact that PO was printed in 2016 have anything to do with it?

    Shops in it's current form is newer, I get that but the style and guts of the deck go back to 2003. You could technically argue that Paradoxical is a new breed of Academy deck or a revamped Prosperity deck but all in all it is a net new deck that has come together over the course of 2018.

    Actually, the PO deck, by design, looks very similar to the Turbo Tezzeret decks circa 2011: https://mtgdecks.net/Vintage/turbo-tezz-decklist-by-john-jones-10939

    In fact, they are structurally almost identical, except for changes in the card pool. The main difference is that they run PO instead of 4 Tezzeret, and used more Grim Monolith and slightly less Mox Opal, since Chalice of the Void was unrestricted at the time.

    Here is a result: http://www.archive.themanadrain.com/index.php?topic=41958.0

    @smmenen I know Shops is the best deck if you count by results. My point is I don't think this criteria should be the most important for the moxies, as it wasn't when Eldrazi won Moxies for best deck. For me the "deck of the year" is more a "deck that impacted deckbuilding and the meta that year" or even "new player in the format" like Survival was. But I know those are just different ways of looking at it.

    I understand these things are inherently ambiguous or debating, like MVP voting in any major sport.

    I'm just trying to explain, in more detail, why I said that Shops was the best deck of 2018, IMO.

    If the empirical results were closer, I might have voted for PO, based upon narrative. I certainly agree that Survival was the 'new' deck of the year. But we had a separate category for that.

  • RE: SMIP Podcast # 86: The 2018 Vintage Year in Review & Moxies Award Show

    Well, the criteria I used was a bit more technical.

    Workshops won 14 of the 52 Vintage Challenges in 2018, almost double the amount PO won (9).

    Workshops also won 1 of the 5 marque events of the year (the SCG P9 series), while PO won the largest and the smallest (The NA Vintage Championship and the Waterbury). But Workshops got 2nd place in the NA Vintage Championship.

    Workshops averaged 23.3% of Vintage Challenge Top 8s during 2018. It's lowest month was May at 13% of Top 8s, and it's highest was April at 34%.

    PO on the other hand averaged 19.7% of Vintage Challenge Top 8s in 2018. It's lowest month was April at 6% of Top 8s, and it's highest was December at 35%.

    If you want to actually compare the results, here they are:

    January: 28% Shops 22% PO
    February: 16% 28%
    March: 33% 13%
    April: 34% 6%
    May: 13% 16%
    June: 15% 18%
    July: 28% 19%
    Aug: 28% 13%
    Sept: 30% 25%
    Oct: 16% 19%
    Nov: 16% 22%
    Dec: 23% 35%

    So, PO had ever so slightly higher "highs," but had much lower "lows" and was overall, won many fewer tournaments, and was significantly lower % of overall Top 8s.

    That's why, holistically speaking, I think Shops were still the deck of the year, in terms of "best deck."

    @fsecco said in SMIP Podcast # 86: The 2018 Vintage Year in Review & Moxies Award Show:

    I disagree with deck of the year, though. In other years you don't necessarily gave moxies to the "most successful deck". Take the eldrazi year for example. If I remember correctly Eldrazi won best deck moxies, and it wasn't the most successful that year. But it changed the metagame and the narrative of the whole year, deserving the award. I really think this year's narrative was all around PO. You later assess that we may be finally out of the Shops Era, and that was a lot on PO's back, which makes for me the deck of the year, since it really shaped how the format evolved and held Shops back a bit.

    Exactly. This year, PO broke Shops's stranglehold on the format. And anecdotally, it was the deck everyone spent all year talking about, preparing for, asking for restrictions of, etc etc. When I think "Vintage 2018," I think PO.

    Great show though!

    Great episode. While I disagree somewhat with dismissing sideboard cards as candidates for card of the year because a key sideboard card could easily push certain archetypes into/out of the upper echelons of the format, I really like Steve's choice of Trophy for card of the year. Looking at raw numbers of top 8 appearances does a disservice to cards that came out later in the calendar year, so taking a longer-term view makes sense to me.

    Would Fragmentize or Yixlid Jailer rate as a "card of the year"? Possibly, in some technical sense.

    But to me, "card of the year" has to have a larger role - a more strategic role, in the evolving metagame. I wouldn't give a best picture oscar based upon a 10 minute supporting actor performance. Similarly, I don't think the "card of the year" Moxie should to a 1- or 2-of sideboard card that is only used by one deck.

    To me, it was down to Niv Mizzet or Assissin's Trophy, and I think Trophy was more deserving, as I think it's the card from the year that will have the longest-term impact on the format.

    So do you think I got it right? The card of the year was a tough one.

  • RE: Why do you think we have a restricted list?

    I don't know when this happened exactly, but some time last year after this thread was created, I believe, the DCI answered the questions in the OP.

    The official Banned and Restricted List page now contains a statement of purpose:

    "One key to the continued health of Magic is diversity. It is vitally important to ensure that there are multiple competitive decks for the tournament player to choose from. Why? If there were only a single viable deck to play, tournaments would quickly stagnate as players were forced to either play that deck or a deck built specifically to beat it. In addition, different players enjoy playing different types of decks. If there are plenty of viable options to play, there will be more players at more tournaments. To help maintain the diversity and health of the Magic tournament environment, a system of banned and restricted lists has been developed."

    Source: https://magic.wizards.com/en/game-info/gameplay/rules-and-formats/banned-restricted?fbclid=IwAR3VMibJBJtOKka8jKF_2zyGx6OLRk9rJsb8Y32WzLBj6JFDIEx7fmEDWho

    Not incidentally, that is essentially what I said in this thread:

    @smmenen said in Why do you think we have a restricted list?:

    I answered that question, from my perspective, here: http://www.eternalcentral.com/so-many-insane-plays-suggested-banned-and-restricted-list-updates-2018/

    The main purpose of the restricted list, in my view, exists to maintain and promote competitive balance. The DCI is basically analogous to the FTC or the Justice Department vis-a-vis the market. The Restricted List is the regulatory mechanism, and the DCI is the regulatory body that manages that mechanism.

    The restricted list also exists to ensure that the format is sufficiently interactive (or even better, that there is sufficient "counter play."

    It accomplishes both goals by 1) regulating dominant strategies, both monopolies and oligopolies, and 2) ensuring there is enough counterplay by regulating decks that win too quickly or shut out an opponent from doing anything, like Trinisphere or Flash.

    The reason that Vintage has a restricted list instead of just a banned list is so that there is an official, sanctioned format where Magic players can play all of their cards (to the maximum extent possible).

    Also, a corollary to that is: What do you think are the criteria R & D uses to decide what is on the restricted list?

    The DCI manages the Vintage restricted list, not R&D. R&D is the team of staff that designs and develops new cards.

    But assuming you mean the DCI, they provide public explanations, so you can parse their explanations for Vintage. I have done so as part of my History of Vintage Series, and found that the DCI's bases for restriction have evolved over the decades of Type I and Vintage player, and is not entirely consistent or internally coherent. They have evolved just as the game has.

    But, by and large, the grounds they offer in their explanations for restriction and unrestriction generally match those I articulated above.

    Also, that statement of purpose bolsters the argument I have long made, that any restriction that is taken for reasons other than promoting format diversity, such as "play pattern concerns," would quite obviously have the potential to undermine the 'diversity' of the format, and therefore undermine the main purpose of Banned and Restricted Lists.

    So, for example, restricting Paradoxical Outcome would quite obviously remove that deck from the format. Unless you could show that restricting PO would open more deck options into the format than restricting it would take away, such a restriction would harm the central purpose for which the DCI states it has created B&R lists in the first place.
