Curious why you decided to necro a 13 year-old article though. Do you feel something about the current metagame is feeding into an information cascade?
My immediate thought when I saw this was the Fastbond deck. I don’t think any iteration of the Fastbond deck is good since for a turn one kill to occur you need 6 cards compared to the just 4 needed to turn 1 kill with DPS. It also depends too heavily upon a few cards that are easy to disrupt, yet it puts up decent results. I think mostly because people are just excited to play with unrestricted Fastbond.
Also I think tournament results are hard to take too seriously when you have Belcher win a tournament out of nowhere and then disappear from the format for the next year.
