"Memnarch or the vedalken salvage most of the large machines, leaving us only scraps. Scraps are enough."
I'm not sold on this helping storm decks ramp into mana any better than other options. Even if your opponent has 5 artifacts (and you're not dead to PO or locked against stax/shops), that's only +3 overall mana gained, which is the same as a threshold cabal ritual.
...That isn't hit by duress (and discard like it) flusterstorm, pierce, or effected by Thorn and Thalia. If they hit this gobo with removal, that's gravy, but not likely if he comes in from SB, since oponents are likely to side out removal game two, against most storm decks.
He can block an attacker which can sometimes mean the difference between winning and losing a game when you play storm.
Of course it has to be tested to have any kind of data to determine if it's any good or not.
If I'm wrong, I'm wrong but we won't know until then.
I for one, am excited to see this goblin.
thank you for the detailed response.
I agree with your thoughts on pact, I just didn't know what to replace it with, until i saw your list.
I was actually going to ask about pact/daze/ pierce/probe but you answered before I did, lol.
I kept going between fetches and duals to Rainbow lands and back. Same with pact and thoughtsieze.
Even went as far as to try burning wish but didn't feel confident enough to share the brewing process, so, it didn't make it past goldfishing.
Preordain is another card I tried in threes. Any thoughts or experience on preordain?
Thank you for sharing the Burning wish list, as well. I too had an overmaster in the SB but I went full rainbow on the mana base. your list definitely looks more consistent.
Thank you again for sharing.
List looks great!
Im glad that someone still works on and plays Ad Nauseam in Paper Vintage.
I've been working on an Ad Nauseam list and I must admit, I would not have thought of even adding Daze.
Daze makes so much sense, now.
I entertained the thought of adding Spell pierce, but didn't because of Misstep.
Speaking of Mental Misstep, how has it worked for you thus far? How often did it make, or would've made, a difference throughout the day? Asking for a friend, lol.
What made you go 0-Cabal Rituals?
My reasoning for keeping at least 2 Cabal Rituals in my list has always been speed and another way to ignore opposing MM.
Apologies if I'm asking too much at once.
Thank you, for the report.
Wouldn't this just put you where we are now, but decades from now...again.
I didn't like Old-school until I came across EC and other non-Swedish rules. OS'96 is a bit better, but Vintage redux is definitely something I would stay away from altogether.
The rules/B&R would still become fractured as, if not much more, than OS'93/94.
This might be a format for a few players out there but, I just dont see it becoming a thing.
My 2 cents anyway
This is a great card.
Digs deep. Gets you the two best cards of seven. At 4cmc, that's not bad, even at sorcery speed. Not comparable to jace,tms at all. Closest card to this is DTT...
Except, this card is coming at a time where we have Jtms, FoF, Gifts, Paradoxical Outcome, Narset, parter of veils unrestricted.
There just isn't room for a slower more costly DTT in Vintage.
In standard it's going to be a beast. Gets you cards past Narset
