@fsecco Yep, it's not great, but it's an option. If you're building a Shop deck that hates null effects, this seems better than praying you can build up 7 non-artifact mana for Meteor Golem or Spine of Ish Sah even if you have to dodge Wasteland.

Interesting to note that this is the cheapest way for a shops deck to remove a Null Rod or Stony Silence, though definitely slow.

Turn 1 Ancient Tomb,
Turn 2 <this>, tap to add 1 counter
Turn 3 Wasteland/Mishra's Factory/whatever, activate

This card is fantastic, but doesn't look like it slots into existing Shop decks very easily. The fact that it has an immediate, powerful impact on the two most powerful decks (other Shops and PO) makes me think that we'll see Shop pilots taking a wrench to their manabase to make it work.

@fsecco My Rock deck cost less than $40 to put together and that's using 'real' cards. If you're looking at using gold borders, all decks are fairly cheap. Not sure how much cheaper you can get.

Really looking forward to putting together my old Rock and slivers decks. Gonna be a bit painful without dual lands but I'm sure the mana is there!

Please no. Vintage Highlander would just be Blue.format.

Mission accomplished.

This thread went into the dumpster for a minute, glad to see we're still able to recover without mod interference.

On topic, it's kind of funny thinking of @brianpk80 as the grandfather of all shops players while being known for playing oath. Very "I brought you into this world, I'll take you back out".

Are there any other notable ways to generate thopters other than Hangarback Walker and the above-mentioned Tezz? I don't think this is a good card, but it is a neat card.

Any jerks from Michigan coming to this?

@taef and @JACO I know live in that part of the woods, they may have a better idea.

I'm extremely hard-pressed to think of any situation where I'd rather draw two cards than win the game.

You might be in the minority of Vintage players.

@moorebrother1 I think you misinterpreted my intent: there's no reason Oath of Druids would ever want to run this card, but it's a prime target for Meteor Golem.

This is a nice option to add to the Shop toolbox, but I think it's too expensive for the current standard build. It's a shame it isn't an exile and doesn't hit lands, it would (obviously) have a lot more utility if either were true. Maybe the ability to ace a big dude, planeswalker, or Oath of Druids is good enough to see play.

It's kind of neat to win 'trophy' cards but this tournament brings out all the ringers so +1 for "prize structure is irrelevant to me". Would love to attend more of these in the future, regardless.

@chase_dagger Tokens aren't cards.

Also, this card seems a lot worse when you realize it is a "one or more" trigger. Alas, no army of bats from a Tormod's Crypt activation.
