I just had a chance to listen to the podcast. Really great you're putting in this work to give us more vintage content.
I like the concept of shoter (than so many insane plays) episodes, and I think that roughly 1 hour is a good length. Obviously I only have 1 episode to go by now, but the duration seemed appropriate for the topics discussed.
I like the idea of rotating guests, and I really enjoyed listening to Brian Kelly's discussion of the snakestill deck. I like to hear how other people reason when deckbuilding and experimenting, and I think that there is none greater than Brian for this at the moment. Great guest to get this show on the road.
I do have some questions about the snakestill deck for Brian. For a deck that wants a fast standstill in play, why was the 4th standstill cut?
I like the inevitability aspect for a single champion of wits. However, the mishra's factory weakness was glossed over a little fast in my opinion. How does this deck fare against the workshop decks with factories? Do the standstills come out? Or do you assume the opponent plays as if you have all the factories?
I also appreciate that you at least tipped on the current prices of power and duals. Mainly because I never hear anyone about it, yet is has a profound impact on my personal ability to play vintage. I don't play online, and with the current prices for power and duals, I will not be able to complete a set (I have a sapphire and an ancestral), and the average tournament (which are now nearly non existent in the Netherlands) will not be able to give power as prizes.
Keep up the good work! Love to have a new podcast to listen to.
As a point of improvement for the future, I would like to hear a little more discussion. Right now it's more an interview with Brian than a discussion. I woul personlly prefer to hear more back-and-forth between you two, uncovering where you make different decisions and what that results in.
