You can probably make a pretty good update to Oshawa Stompy thanks to vengevine, hooting mandrils and hollow one. A deck with wastes, basics, null rods and big creatures seems fun.
Holy fuck. Right now I'm like the matchup against Workshop when playing 4 Misstep / 3 Fluster / 2 Blast - super fucking hard
I really wanted to try a 3-5 color enchantress based around Solemnity/Mystic Remora/Illusions of Granduer and Donate. Any Seal or Bounce spell ends the game after a Donate, and Solemnity lets you break Remora and Illusions while stopping Ravagers and Ballistas. Obv WGU base, but could add red for Pyroblast and the new kitty Donate. Black could be for Tutors, and the DarkDepths package possibly?
This also has allowed me to test Ancestral Knowledge + Argothian Enchantress + Solemnity, which I have to say has been pretty nasty good. Enchantress even has a reducer now in Herald. Lots to try and test, but enchantress is possible now I think.
I ended up busy most of Saturday so I didn't get around to throwing together something funny in time. I ended up on my previously built Paradoxical Oath deck because it was the deckbox closest to my computer screen.
I did get to Desire for 22 with 23 cards in the deck, so that was neat.
On my walk home from work today, I came up with an idea I'm calling "Key Control"
Produce lots of mana:
- Lots of artifact mana production
- 3-4 Voltaic Key
Use lots of mana:
- Time Vault
- 2+ Blightsteel Collosus
- Walking Ballista
- Mind Twist
- Black Sun's Zenith
- Charbelcher (cutting lands down to Academy and Minamo
- Other ... Sun's Zeniths
- Trinisphere - I'm making a shitload of mana, why do I care about a 3ball?
Played this pile of Vintage-legal cards today. (5C Staxx)
Play of the day was:
Waste your Underground sea. Float (3) with Workshop. Tap Emerald. Crop Rotate sacrificing Workshop. Get Strip Mine. Strip Mine your Island. Cast Trinisphere. You have no permanents. Go.
Deck was fun to play but ultimately just too slow. Many games I was struggling not to lose instead of being able to even begin to execute my gameplan.
5C Staxx was the second deck I ever built in any constructed format. It was fun to get back to it. I might tweak a bit and play it again next time around rather than switching to another crazy deck as I'd planned.
