@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.

People are gonna get river boa'd at champs. Prepare yourselves.

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.

I'm glad that they broke 100 players but also satisfied the turnout wasn't very large; attending Friday events is wildly inconvenient and I hate seeing the trend encouraged.

@moorebrother1 Most of these are half measures. Board sweepers are great, if you survive long enough to use them and can get most of their threats. Moat is great, if they don't machine gun you down with ballista or make a dozen thopters. Dack Fayden is great, if they don't have a ravager or a big board presence.

Sometimes they cement a win, sometimes they are air.

This also seems to trigger off of your opponent. So that's neat.
