RE: Brian Kelly is actually responsible for the Unrestriction of Mishra's Workshop
Well, nobody likes to lose. The reason/particulars are often irrelevant. I remember back in the days of TPS how masturbatory (non-interactive) it seemed to me, and later similarly with 13-sphere Stax. Orchard + mox = Oath wasn't much better. Winning vintage designs have for a long time been all about making your deck as non-interactive as possible. These were definitely beatable, however, so the question with Dredge should be, "Can any necessary metagame adjustments be made by the players while maintaining a healthy diversity?"
As for games being decided by eking out a gradual advantage through strategically outmaneuvering your opponent: those are the best games of Magic.
