Austin will be sending 6 mages to Pittsburgh. We're currently designing our shirts for the event, and as my tokens arrived in the mail last week, I'm feeling confident in our style points this year.

Thanks @Rat3dE. I'm actually unsure about Arcanist in this brave new world. On the one hand, it's a powerful card and its targets are more likely the resolve without Misstep being around. On the other hand, we no longer have Misstep to protect it, so there's a greater chance of Arcanist just dying without generating any value (unlike all the other creatures in this deck, which can do something no matter what).

Edit: that said, you're the 3rd person to tell me to play Arcanist, so maybe I should just do it.

So what are we thinking Jeskai looks like in a Misstepless world? Here's my rough draft, though I'm expecting to see some very different takes in the coming weeks:

Dudes: 8
3 Snapcaster
2 Pyromancer
1 Mentor
2 Lavinia

Planeswalkers: 4
2 Narset
2 Dack

Blue Spells: 21
1 Ancestral
1 Brainstorm
1 Ponder
1 Probe
1 Misstep
1 Flusterstorm
2 Spell Pierce
4 Preordain
1 Time Walk
1 Merchant Scroll
1 Force of Negation
4 Force of Will
1 Cruise
1 Dig

Non-Blue Spells: 7
3 Pyroblast
3 Bolt
1 Wear/Tear

Artifacts: 4
1 Lotus
1 Pearl
1 Ruby
1 Sapphire

Lands: 16
4 Volc
3 Tundra
1 Island
8 Fetches

Sideboard: 15
1 Pyroblast
2 Shattering Spree
1 By Force
2 Plow
2 Stony
3 Priest
2 Rav Trap (might switch to Surgical)
1 Pithing Needle
1 Mountain

I should maybe just play Eldrazi/something more proactive until the meta shakes out and we see what this deck needs to be tuned for . . .

I just created an Untap.in account and some decks, though I haven't actually tried playing yet. Username is snaxydippers.

My bad - I focused on a nitpick, which came off as more negative than I intended and which isn’t what you guys or TMD need. As always, great show and appreciate what you guys do.

@stuart said in SMIP # 92: Magic 2020 Vintage Set Review:

when at the time of recording it was already putting up strong results.

Sorry, I guess this is where I misspoke - you're right that Mystic Forge didn't have any finishes yet. My intended point was that it's more enjoyable and interesting to listen to you guys make predictions when no one knows anything yet. In this case, there were already Mystic Forge decks running around at the time of recording, so the predictions were less interesting than usual.
