Have you considered testing out Paradoxical outcome? It seems incredible to me that this deck ever can beat null rod or stony silence

Why Urza's Bauble instead of something like Mishra's? THe value of seeing a random card instead of setting up a fetch or something?

I'm either Minnifer or Minniehajj on almost every internet forum. Real name is Minhajul Hoq, if anyone cares =P.

My OCD is quite heavy, so constantly seeing unread messages on threads that I don't care about but forcing me to click through them all to eliminate them from the Unread posts area is really really irritating. I'd love it if you could just make is so that visiting the unread notification area simply clears all notifications from there, or, even better, let you "follow" threads to receive notifications from only them if there are unread messages

Restricting Mishra's Workshop puts the current artifact decks in the realm of Goblins and Enchantress. The only reason one would argue for this restriction is if they want to nuke the archetype from orbit.

If the decks are making up this portion of the metagame, where are the delvers? Or ancient grudges? Where the hell did Dack Fayden go? Letting shops win events because it is disrespected is not a problem inherent to the format, but the players.

Agreed completely. People are stubborn and just don't adapt. You could see some signs even towards the end of VSL, if WOTC is utilizing them as a bandwidth for banning, because we saw a small surge in landstill decks, that (purportedly) are really good against shops. People just don't adapt at all

I'm not saying this is the end all be all new tech @Soly but I think it could be worth exploring as it is a new style of creature that could enter vintage.

Sorry to bother you, but you do know the quote in your signature is actually wrong, right?
