I know youre right about the fetches.. I do have 4 polluted deltas....
I just hate to bench my collection of fetches, its fun having all different ones....
the correct thing to do would be 4 polluted deltas and then 3 other fetches that can get islands, right? I would think blue is more important to me then black in an emergency situation
@dr-j I found the exact same thing (pre-Oko) before I added the Force of Negations. If your opponent does resolve a planeswalker you are already in trouble but playing Tinker+Walk in the same turn is not that tough for this deck so it is not like all is lost.
If you have enough Mana for Drain, but not a hardcast Negation then he should run out Swords (assuming he is confident you don't have Misdirection)
If you can hardcast Negation then he is better off waiting for Pyroblast backup.
I haven't liked BSC for a long time now, though I don't get much of a chance to play Vintage nowadays, so what do I know. The thing is, he's vulnerable to Dack Fayden, JTMS, and now Oko, three big planeswalkers that other blue decks could reasonably be playing. Not to mention STP.
I've always had good success eschewing Tinker entirely; my playstyle tends more towards hard control. Conversely, I can remember several times my opponent had Vault or Key in play, which I was able to ignore entirely because it did absolutely nothing on its own. But maybe this is just me.
Anyways, a suggestion you could try.
