There is nothing to shutter a 4 lotus petal from doing its thing besides null rod. It can't be misstepped and shop decks only have 1 chalice.

I agree lotus petal would just supercharge outcome decks.

Lotus petal would also be strong in storm because it combos well with cabal ritual, dark petition, yawgmoth's will.

Petal would also be sweet in mono blue and turn 1 belcher decks.

There is no "healthy" deck benefiting from 4 lotus petal and even if its not absurd right after unrestriction your essentially just creating a timebomb that has to be dealt with in the future.

ToyWiz had 12 people turn out for the first Vintage event. Very happy with the turnout and we hope to grow it in the future.

I wanted to make this post because I split the finals and have been played the same deck twice. I split the event at the Bearded Dragon a while backs so I figure I would throw the list out there.

It was twelve people so we did not do decklists. 100% of the cash went back to the players so it was still a pretty sweet tournament.

I split the finals with someone playing close toJoe's UWR Mentor list. I was playing UR delver/pyro. We built it because of card availbility out of Joe's collection but it ended up being the stone nuts.

Joe Brennan and I copied the list from Miss-Clique's Magic Online and made a couple changes. I can't explain why the deck is doing well but I believe its because
it has pretty good game against workshops and mentor decks. Even though I beat Eldrazi twice over two weeks I find that it has a poor eldrazi, paradoxical outcome, and oath matchups.

SUDDEN SHOCK WAS AMAZING across both events. Played mentor, eldrazi, dredge, nahiri/jace planeswalker control. Two weeks ago I played bloodmoon control, dredge, eldrazi twice, UWR mentor, paradoxical outcome,
