This podcast by @CyrusCG and @9thonbreakers is amazing http://topdownlegacy.libsyn.com/episode-9-how-to-prepare-for-a-big-event

I worked hard last year to become a better player and I tried several things that are recommended in this podcast and there are things here that I wish I had done too.

I know some look at Vintage casually and some take it very seriously. I play this game for many reasons and being competitive is part of it. Knowing how to prepare for events was very foreign to me.

For episode 37, Geoff Moes (@ThallidTosser on Twitter), Nat Moes (@GrandpaBelcher), and Josh Chapple (@joshchapple) talk with Steve McGrew and Jake Hilty (@TuringTested, our first returning guest) about a new, fun format we’ve been enjoying. It’s not as old as Old School or as new as Modern – it’s Middle School!

    Umori, the Collector in Workshops

    alt text

    Since most Workshop decks are all artifacts and lands you can play Umori, the Collector in your sideboard as your Companion. I know there isn't very many colored mana sources to cast it but it only takes up one side board slot and I think it would be OK to but in two Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to help pay for it's cost. Also by adding Urborg in, your Ancient Tombs can produce mana without having to cost life and Mishra's Workshop can produce mana that can be used for other purposes than casting artifact spells, also good for Dismember.

    Doesn't stop Oath of Druids, Dredge's free creatures, or Tinker. I think most actual spell-casting in Vintage does take place from the hand

    Human Tribal creature that hates on snapcaster, Dredge stuff, Flashback, the new companions, and a few other things. Probably not enough on his own but could see sideboard play as supplemental hate that hits a few different archetypes.

    @volrathxp said in [IKO] Lutri, the Spellchaser:

    @griselbrother

    Uhhh, Donate wouldn't do much there. You'd just be giving them a creature. You can call a judge if you like, they'll just stare at you.

    Companion is something you declare at the beginning of a game, sort of like Commander. Once the card is cast and in play, it's treated like any other creature.

    Yeah, I'm aware of that. I was just pointing out that the only reason why this would ever see play would be to try to troll someone that way.
