It might be worth noting that Vampiric Tutor is also completely legal as a 4-of in the format.  That's the one that always throws people coming in for the first time for a loop.   Wink

You forgot Mind's Desire, Burning Wish, and Lion's Eye Diamond.  They seem pretty important.

Absolutely...good call.  In fact, until the recent hype surrounding Hulk Flash (which is looking like an absolute powerhouse in Classic as well), I wrote a two-part primer on the Classic "Long-esque" Tendrils deck that is up over on the Classic Quarter site. 

Until now, I would have argued that this is the strongest possible combo list in the format...=P

Isn't that odd - I left, like a whole combo out. 

Oh well - it's never won anything anyway, right DJ?
