I'm gonna leave extra early to try and make this one, Water Gap vacation travelers be damned!!!
(If I get there too early, I'm gonna just chill at the Totally Twisted Pretzel. Get my lemonade on.)
Will be attending, and I'll have my binder of many (homemade) playtest foils.
I think they're pretty neat-o, and everyone I play will get one! (also people who smile at me, or compliment my eyes)
New additions include Moat, Time Vault, Lion's Eye Diamond, probably something else I can't remember... haha
And I recently finished my painting of City of Traitors, so I put that on a card too. Hope to see folks there and throw down!
What would be the worst-case scenario for unrestricting Fastbond? My imagination tells me that at the very least we'd get a playable Vintage Lands deck, but I'm also not much of a Vintage brewer so there may be consequences I'm not seeing. Does an unrestricted Fastbond fall into that sweet spot Steve is talking about with regards to a deck that speeds up the format, but doesn't lead to a deck that can consistently win on Turn 1?
That means that IF this card is playable, it HAS to be in a deck that uses "bounce a land" as upside, rather than a drawback. I wouldn't look at this card with anything that didn't have an explicit plan around that.
Vintage... Lands? (I'm... Ron Burgundy?)
I know there's a thread somewhere on tmd for a Lands deck, so maybe this spell fits there. Probably still needs a Fastbond unrestriction, but hey it's something!
Finally I can take that gush oath deck apart...
It's funny, I have a small proxied-up "vintage gauntlet" I keep around for fun/testing, and I'm realizing virtually every single deck runs bunches of Probes and Gushes. Should have been a sign hahah
