I decided to try Shops for the first time this weekend and loved it. I tried Car Shops, specifically Nick Dijohn's 75 from Eternal Extravaganza 5 , as I was told it was a solid list to test out.
I went 3-1, made a bunch of mistakes a long the way. However, I've been trying to debate continuing to try Car Shops out or if I should go down the TKS Shops route. I want to stay with the aggro variations on Shops as that is more my style, then the STAX hard lock style. I do enjoy playing with creatures and I love Eldrazi, but it was interesting the nuances of the deck with the cars. I ran into needing more land to play some of the cars out when I had too many Thorn's out, but that probably came down to sequencing errors and honestly, forgetting I had a land in my hand on one turn (major mistake).
What I'm wondering ,what are you feelings on both decks (pros and cons), the long term potential of both, and/or anything you else you feel may be pertinent?
I thought I was a Painter player, but I feel I've gotten a bit rusty after this weekend.
