@stormanimagus That wouldn't have been the correct call because the opponent's hand had plenty of mana. His follow up would have been Sphere of Resistance, Ballista for 3 on turn 2, Ravager + Pump Ballista (4/4) + Sac 5 artifacts and Modulate onto Ballista (10/10) on turn 3. The opponent would have been delayed a turn by the Sphere and had to tap out on turn 3 to cast Oath. Granted, we don't know all of the available information such as the top card of the opponent's library, but you can hardly fault Backbreaker for playing the way he did. I can fault you though for calling him incompetent, though, and not puzzling out alternative lines. Seems pretty lazy and judgemental.
@moorebrother1 This is one of those crappy arguments I've been railing against... It's not a matter of how broken a deck's best draws are, it's a matter of how often those decks are winning. Dredge is around 50% based on our available data - it's perfectly balanced within the metagame. Paradoxical, which has similarly busted draws, is below 50%. While people can certainly try to argue that these decks are not interactive and should be restricted on those grounds (I wouldn't find them compelling honestly). However, that isn't the argument most people are making with regards to Shops. Could you stop misrepresenting the other side's argument? Please?
