A very nice article! Reading the complete evolution of The Deck is some kind of a History lesson for not just who play Vintage but for everyone who plays Magic in general as well. Explanations regarding card choices and/or changes made me change my perception about metagaming.
I'm looking forward for your next article regarding the Zoo archetype. I hope you do mention there the RG beatz deck that took home the 2007 SCG Power 9 Event.
Thanks again Steve and great work!
You have an eagle eye! The only mention of the next article was buried in the middle of the article. You must have read the whole thing!
I will be focusing on the archetype as of the early to mid 1990s, unfortunately. But the upside is that I will also be unveiling a video with the next article.
This is a 10 article series, so there will be something for everyone.
With this article, I was trying to create something that was more of a perennial project that would be useful for years to come. Even for people who don't like Old School formats as they are most often played, this serves as a historical piece.
No one before had ever compiled all of the published Weissman lists in a single article. I was hoping to write the "definitive" article on The Deck here. Let me know if I did so.
