I have posted my views on this topic before here and little has changed in my view.
It's pretty funny that you linked to a post where I am quoted as saying "Shops are just much more powerful, flexible and adaptable than they have ever been."
The person quoting me disagreed, saying that they are nowhere near powerful as in the 4 chalice/4 golem era.
The funny part?
Not only would I double down on that comment (that is, I am right, and Cutlex was wrong), but I'd go further: Montolio's deck, IMO, is the best Workshop deck in the history of the format, and it's not particularly close. It's faster, more flexible, more resilient, and more explosive than any Shop deck from the past.
