Since this summer's SCGCon, many Xerox players have lept away from Sperlingesque RUG Pyromancer to Arcanist builds, per Justin Franks's 2nd place list. Some other examples:
- White Tsar's 4th-place finish in the 7/7 Challenge
- The Hamburglar's 8th-place finish in the 7/7 League
- Geekyjackson's 4th-place finish in the 6/23 League
What do we attribute this to? Following Justin Franks's high profile finish at SCGCon? Just wanting to try new cards? Arcanist being that good? A meta shift making these better positioned?
