I wrote up a report about my first foray into the vintage tournament scene at Vintage Champs. I would love constructive criticism on the article. If you feel I'm wrong, tell me! I would love to discuss.
I'm reading this right now. It's very good for a first article so far. Keep writing, it's just like with anything else, you'll keep building up your skill.
I felt like I wasn't sure about Daretti in the list until I saw your explanation for it. Killing a Null Rod is a big deal.
Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for the article! I just took a brief look, will read it tomorrow carefully. Just one comment: about folding to Null Rod/Stony silence: it depends on your draws. I have been playing painters for some months now, and with a higher number of creatures you can win some turns before finding painter+reb/pyro.
Thanks for an interesting read. Just some small constructive critique (since you should continue writing): there are quite a few typos in the text. For example "than" is always "then" in your text, cast is often caste (which is a social hierarchy system in India : ) ). But besides these, as I wrote, a really interesting read and engaging style of writing.
Quite the interesting build. I debated whether to get rid of black, but I liked the strong black cards. Especially the removal. However for the current meta this may be the more correct build of Painter outside of 2 card monte.
I would tweak the list to more of my play style. Is it wrong I'd want to find a way to put some Eldrazi in the list?
@mdkubiak Probably it's wrong. Painter is quite solid against Eldrazi, since Eldrazis are not colorless anymore and so Eldrazi lands cannot pay eldrazis. Also you don't have a decent way to ensure colorless mana unless you change your manabase a lot, and then playing 3 colors seems a bad idea.
What kind of environment are you facing, where moons and paradoxical outcome are not great? They are probably my best cards, painter shell is just the glue that combines them.
