@ajfirecracker Hey. I just want to thank you for this and your videos as well. You've really helped me understand Dredge a lot more deeply than I otherwise would have. I bet I'm not the only one. For what can be (I think) the most counterintuitive archetype, you do a great job of just walking through the choices logically. Great work.
@Islandswamp will do :) I think @OriginalOestrus is generally on Legacy/Modern, but she did have a really good time playing Vintage so hopefully it will happen again :) We wanted to play the daily but it didn't fire :/
@Water0 it seems like we got a misunderstanding here. I thought we where talking about @spook s post:
Does not have haste - so much weaker against Dack.
to which @ajfirecracker replied that dealing 3 damage to a planeswalker on ETB still deals with the planeswalker, so having haste to kill the dack isn't necessary. I was understanding your comment on that
Deal 3.. to their planeswalker? It doesn't say player on there anywhere.
As that you misread the card and where trying to say that in fact it wouldn't handle dack. Thats why i reposted the card text. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
@ChubbyRain It was huge for a while, after Bomberman faded out - not so much, that was my point.
I played you at champs in round 8 - you were on Dragon. ;)
I also wouldn't call their dismissal foolish, there's just far superior options regardless of meta (opinion, but their lack of wide spread adoption speaks volumes).
In 2016 though, there are at least 6 hits for Salvagers on TCDecks. That's not including the Asian Championships or a 32-person event in PA in which I came in second with Kelly Oath. The lack of widespread play has much more to do IMO with other factors (difficulty of play, inability to play on MTGO, player preference, metagame considerations) than 'far superior options regardless of meta'. Obviously Nakamura and Brian Kelly, felt so...
Also, I remember you. And I don't recommend playing Dragon for 17 rounds during Eternal Weekend :p
