RE: [C17] Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist
'Generate a lot of creatures' is a popular and surprisingly successful strategy in Vintage. This card can single-handedly address this vulnerability. However, this card is narrow, slow, and fragile (unfortunately sharing a toughness with Containment Priest in particular).
RE: April 4, 2016 B&R Announcement
Restricting Lodestone Golem is a good decision. It decreases luck and adds variety. Mishra's Workshop is still Tier 1.
Think about how many cards became playable today. Every deck, strategy, card, and new set is now more interesting. I am excited!
RE: Sin Prodder and manipulating your opponents draws
Consider splitting your deck into two piles: those your opponent would bin and those she will let you keep at any moment in time.
Contrast drawing a card. Sin Prodder's ability's value is the weighted average of the converted mana cost in damage of the binned pile plus the in-hand value of the kept pile.
Plainly, the ability shines when your bad cards are good and your good cards are expensive.
