  • That second place deck-list is incredible.

  • Even with the conflicting events we had 17 players for our EE Silver Series. Always a great time seeing everyone. Had a fun time playing even though I went 2-3. Trying to figure out a good date in March for my next EE event. Any suggestions?
    Thanks for making Depot a great place to play Vintage on Long Island.
    Dont forget Vintage FNM EE Bronze is this Friday.

    That is the full list. Untested thrown together the night before the event. I wanted to do a write up but I think the list is too rough for me to want to talk about any of my choices until I really figure out whats what. Elesh Norn def moves to the main over Iona. 4-0-1 in swiss for #1 seed then we chopped top 4. If anyone has questions Id be happy to answer.


  • @Bibendum could inspiring statuary from aether revolt be of any consideration for the deck to help cast oath, enlightened tutor, any drawn oath creatures, or other potential nonartifact spells through the sphere effects?

  • @fermanj It seems interesting but I never had an issue where I was locked under spheres, just issues with having the color online. Double white can be rough same for casting decay, need to tweak the base.

  • @Bibendum that makes sense. I ran the deck through a few practice matches online (with the only differences being void winnower and ancestral instead of Iona and crawlspace since I don't currently own those two cards) and the deck felt very powerful. I look forward to seeing how the list looks once it's tuned more.

  • I very much like the theory behind crawlspace. It's out there but works. Iona should be elesh norn. I never liked Void Winnower vs blue as I felt it doesn't hit anything important vs them

  • @Bibendum I'll have to pick those two cards up then. Thanks for the insight, the deck is awesome.

  • Crawlspace was going to be my answer to $60 Ensnaring Bridges a couple weeks ago on MTGO, but they still get Fragmentized :(

  • You just need it to speed bump long enough to answer the mentor tokens with a bomb or an Elesh Norn
