Great article written by Brian DeMars, long time Vintage player and lover, features other big names in the Vintage community along with some thoughts from people on Twitter.
Just wanted to make sure that this article got some attention, it is written by Nico Bohny, a great Vintage player and streamer who goes by shir kahn on MODO and streams on twitch at https://www.twitch.tv/busterbohny.
@Stuart You definitly want to fit some Arcanist in there. The card is insanely strong and can create massive CA over just one or two turns while being super flexible due to the fact that it can vastly increase your clock with Bolts. I think you may also want some of the Plows MD and probably some more MD artifact hate but I am no expert.
@BlindTherapy My point with winning G1 against Priest was more that it was possible whereas with most lists it would not be.
bloodghast most of the time, and the card is amazing, like a narcomoeba you can use turn after turn.
When you put it that way it actually makes it sound much better than I initially thought.
Hardcasting pharoah sounds harder than hardcasting Troll, given the color requirments, and troll is bigger.
It was because I was low on cards in library and I happened to draw a Pharaoh, also black is easier to get than green because of Dakmore.
I'm interested to hear that pharoah has been good for you; what has it been good against?
Against things like Eldrazi it can really slow them down as it essential comes down to a topdeck war of can they draw 20 power worth of castable creatures before you find your anti-hate.
Chill dodges priest and cage, falling victim to everything else. Dredge doesn't generally need much help beating priest and cage in my opinion, as the yard is still there once you remove the hate.
While in general I would agree I think it is a bit more complex than that as the games where they have the resources to maintain their GY nearly continuously it allows you to take advantage of weak points or mistakes much more effectively and efficiently since they are already at a lower life. In the Hogaak version I would imagine this is even more amplified by the inclusion of HO, Bloodghast and Hogaak as these all become much better at crossing the finish life as a one to four turn clock then a three to ten turn clock.
