@ChubbyRain It was huge for a while, after Bomberman faded out - not so much, that was my point.
I played you at champs in round 8 - you were on Dragon.
I also wouldn't call their dismissal foolish, there's just far superior options regardless of meta (opinion, but their lack of wide spread adoption speaks volumes).
In 2016 though, there are at least 6 hits for Salvagers on TCDecks. That's not including the Asian Championships or a 32-person event in PA in which I came in second with Kelly Oath. The lack of widespread play has much more to do IMO with other factors (difficulty of play, inability to play on MTGO, player preference, metagame considerations) than 'far superior options regardless of meta'. Obviously Nakamura and Brian Kelly, felt so...
Also, I remember you. And I don't recommend playing Dragon for 17 rounds during Eternal Weekend
