Islandswamp talks about the return of Fetchlands and Vintage in the desert!

Fairgrounds and Gisela are month old tech by this point.

Also not sure how you failed to mention that Connor took my advice to cut Thought-Knot Seer. That's the most important change from how most people build the deck.

Finally, you published his list with 58 maindeck cards.

First of all: Thank you for the write-up, Joe! I appreciate a lot that you offer so much vintage content so frequently.

Joe you're the most consistent writer Vintage has ever had! Keep it up

That and cutting Eldrazi Temple for more Plains which I assume also is something Connor got from you.

So this isn't even White Eldrazi anymore. What's the point of Reality Smasher?

@desolutionist

Smasher is a ridiculously undercosted threat for all of his abilities - and regular 2/1 hatebear decks never had the clock this guy poses. He's also beast vs walkers with the haste.

@desolutionist in the words of Faith No More "Surprise, you're dead..."

I'll admit my experience at building and playing this deck are limited , but I don't understand how you can run 4 smashers after cutting eldrazi temple? I would think that as soon as you remove temple, tks and smasher would follow. It's a whole package, as even displacer gets a lot worse without temple. Wouldn't you be better off just playing white trash with ancient tomb for thorn and chalice at that point?

@Macdeath Smasher and Displacer get in the club on lines of pure power, latter is a great late game mana sink too.

I agree. Could even just play Stoneforge Mystic rather than Smashers.
