I really like the addition of fleetwheel crushers, but was surprised that no one played the copter.
The second list looks more powerful and i like the way that both decks has turned out. I thought the decks would go more towards the traditional stax-route.

Copter is actually bad in vintage. Unlike Skysovereign and cruiser, it does nothing by itself.

All these cards require a pilot, and crew 1 is almost as hard as crew 3 for the shops deck.

Smokestack is very bad in vintage where the format is faster than it's ever been, and more decks have Token armies.

@gkraigher @the atog lord has gone 3-1 or 4-0 in his last 4 attempts at Stax the past couple of weeks, most of the games not even being close.

Make that 5 today. I think that deck ought to have its own thread. Ensnaring Bridge seems like a sweet one right now.

Anyway, Workshop casts Cruiser, which is good since that was always an issue with Reality Smasher, but 3 toughness is a little awkward. Being horrible against Bolt and Thalia 2.0 seems suboptimal. It is a strong tool, but not really a huge game-changer for Workshops IMO.
