It does seem neat, but with the prevalence of Reality Smasher and TKS, not to mention pyroblasts, I really dont want to be playing a card that can't survive combat with them initially, and gets blasted. That said, I do think that card would be sweet, but its probably better in a shell with more proactive instants and sorceries.
This deck is very reactive, making it kinda hard to trigger the flip when you want it. I think there's a maximum of 6 non-reactive spells that would trigger it? That seems a bit low for something that will come down in the mid-late game after players have traded resources a lot already.
If I were going to play it, I would probably start with a similar shell to the Thing in the Ice decks that were all the rage a few weeks ago. Just having the extra 8-10 cantrips to help flip this on demand would make it much more powerful than here.
@Soly The quick answer is that I'm a bad player and don't make proper scouting. The long answer is that Miquel is often on heavy control builds (no landstill though), and I understood that two people were talking about him playing Landstill (it turned that it was his opponent that round). besides, I was pretty sure I could draw intentionally if I was 3-1, but had 0 chances if I was 2-2, so I wasn't expecting to play last round. In fact it turned that even losing, he entered top 8.
Thanks man. I enjoyed playing it, and I think if one were to play it at larger tournament the deck needs some tuning. Some cool tech I stumbled upon after the tournament was big game hunter since you already play jace, bazaar and 3 mana under a thorn isn't all that hard.
The kind of oversideboarding @diophan is talking about is really common in vintage (probably in magic). If you can get a handle on that you'll be ahead of the curve. Just make sure you follow it to it's natural conclusion. If you don't have enough cards in your deck to take out in order to fit, say, the Echoing Truth ... then that Echoing Truth could have been something more useful in another matchup. Adding cards to a sideboard without considering what you need to cut for them is a critical error I see people make all the time.
Congrats man. I'm glad to see you enjoyed the list. I worked on that thing quite a bit, and although I've had some low points with the deck, I've had some amazing runs with it as well.
Lotus Petal seems so innocuous, but it gives you 8 zero cmc artifacts to power out a quick oath, and it fixes, and it's great with yawgmoth's will. Also it can help you play dig through time in a pinch.
Good luck with it in the future!
@xouman I didn't consider dropping some Drains. In my first tournament, my list was a bit different. It was with main deck Tinker-Colossus, and the black tutor package instead of red.
My feelings with the present list are goods. But sometimes Drains is not castable in the first or even second turn, so I will probably go down to 3 copy (or may be 2). Also double red Spellbomb isn't needed.
The draw engine was very good, Dack is just awesome to filters, while Jace control opponent draw. But again, I'm far from an Bomberman expert or experienced vintage player, so don't take me on words ;)
