Nice article, like the whole serie. Thanks for sharing.
IMHO, unrestrict strip mine would be an error. I was playing a land destruction deck back in those days, it was my first tournament deck and i won quite often then because of the sheer stupidity of the plays it could do. There are enough other land destruction cards to be able to deal with Library if needed. There are no fetches in the format so it is not the same as with wasteland nowdays, color stability is more difficult to obtain.
I would advocate for Mishra's factory restriction because with nowdays rules it can efficiently block many "small" creatures in the format. As a side effect, it would hinder The Deck but the point IMHO is that more agro strategies would work better.
I am playing in France where the rules are black vise restricted but Fallen Empire allowed. Playing 4 hymn to Tourach is not enough to win The Deck most of the time (even if coupled with hypnotic specter and disrupting scepter). The Deck is polyvalent, drawing and recursing his cards too much. Black vise could be an answer but energy flux and underworld dreams look like quite good at fighting it.
