I know it's vintage and all, but am I the only one who thinks certain cards need to be removed completely from the format? I mean banned not just restricted. A restricted Mentor or Misstep is such a high variance thing to play against. Building a targeted strategy becomes nearly impossible when the opponent is a pile of 1 offs(don't give me some BS about Vintage is a 1 of format). At this point I think it would be interesting to see some cards banned outright. Lodestone Golem for example creates a high amount of non games and cant be properly prepared for in deck building. What about banning cards such as Lodestone Golem, Monastery Mentor and Mental Misstep. If they simply restrict Mentor and Misstep I see no reason for the xerox style deck to not slot 2x next best creatures and continue on as they have every time in formats past.
@ChubbyRain The SB should have 4 leyline of sanctity(-1 trap/eidolon). Depending on your expected meta I would tweak some things. I was expecting a large number of shops/eldrazi while still being "covered" vs other powerful archetypes. If landstill if a popular deck in your expected meta you'll need to work something out for that matchup (4-6 basics is pretty rough on the gameplan). Lotus and Ruby are auto includes haven't thought much about a powered list though honestly.
