@volrathxp I'm always amazed at the sheer mass and quality of your work. Thank you for your contribution to the community.

But do you really want to cast a Ritual, commit and then cast Duress? I don't like to go for it till I know the coast is clear, IE not cast Rituals till then.
I would cast the Duress before any Rituals; pay for it off of a Sea or a Swamp.

I would play the Duress effect first for the reasons given; also because they may daze/misstep it and I would rather that happen and be able to recover with the cantrip.

Good question!

@protoaddict
Timetwister or Wheel of Misfortune are the best draw sevens to use this against I think.

Does this apply to leasing cards on MTGO? I'm always looking for a better deal there.

Has anyone given much thought to Wheel of Misfortune, Plunge into Darkness and Intervention Pact / Children of Korlis Possibly in Legacy more than Vintage?
This seems like something that could happen.

I'm going to invest heavily in this card. 😉

@evouga said in Krak, the Thumbless:

I think if you just resolve ancestral this is great. Spending U, or UUU either way its great for 6 cards.

This seems really great to me. I don't think its too hard to get into a "more mana than cards" situation. This profits from that situation.

This one is almost relevant? Should we keep it?

Thanks, I'm looking into Oops all spells right now. This was helpful.

Is this worth looking at again? There have been a few printings that have drastically helped it. Once Upon a Time, Force of Vigor, Thassa's Oracle and recently Agadeem, the Undercrypt.
I think you could probably run Force of Will and Misdirection in the right build too.

@botvinik
Depends on your meta, but I would think that I would rather have the discard over Trickbind everywhere but doomsday.
Alot of people play with Voltaic just for the old borders an fun factor. With sphinx in the deck it may not really matter.
Just 0.02c.

posted in Vintage Strategy read more

Might try Manifold Key in place of Voltaic, and I would suggest a few Thoughtseize in the board.

@80percentbuffoon
You say that, but I wouldn't be surprised if the average Vintage player was a Boomer. A lot of us have been playing for 20+ years and weren't kids when magic started.
