I just watched the replay of @hierarchnoble's stream with this deck, and it looks like an absolute blast. One thing that jumped out to me is that the mana base seems stretched a bit thin with the blue power, the black tutors, and the white sideboard cards. The black tutors also seemed a bit slow. I'm loving the discussion on this deck; with some fine tuning it could be a real factor in the metagame.
I've updated the google doc. It now has 2 lists- 1 for things I'm trying based on suggestions given here and 1 for the updated version of the original (they're extremely similar).
I played a build of this deck to a 5-1 finish at our local Vintage today, losing the first round to shops on the draw, then beating Oath twice, Landstill twice, and finally the other 5-1 Pyromancer deck. I likely would have beat shops on the play and the other matches never felt close.
This is the list I played:
I recognize that Slimefoot is just gratuitous, but I said I was going to play it and I held to my word. I would definitely like to play Leovold in that slot. The sideboard can use some work.
Stingscourger is exactly what I need; I keep losing to Tinker Blightsteel when I bring in null rods and leo vs PO decks and dack feels too slow.
Paradoxical decks in general feel like the worst match up as null rod doesn't stop their Tinker plan it just stops them from storming out with ridiculous amounts of mana and the decks I consistently lose to the most.
@serracollector Gilded Drake is also very interesting
Makes me still want a SS to bounce the Drake after though! (fully aware that won’t matter).
One potential difference in this case is vs Containment Priest or Ethersworn Canonist- we want those off the board, not on our side. Maybe having 1 of each is correct after all.
