Seems like a good dredge Target. Except the existing targets straight kill the opponent, so I don’t really see this as an upgrade.
I have a wife and two girls. I work in a cheese factory. Been playing magic for over 20 years. Used to play paper vintage, but sold all my power when we had our first child 11 years ago. Now I play vintage on line, and primarily modern and legacy in paper.

RE: "De-Oracle-izing" and "Antiquating" Modern Cards
@bandswithothers seems sweet. But what’s with the combat redirection part? Shouldn’t it read combat damage done to you can be re-directed to Jace? Not from Jace to a creature.
The abilities should also read only once per turn and as a sorcery.
Needs more text :)
RE: 1/7/18 - ShamanBen's Birthday Vintage at RIW Hobbies (Unlimited Proxy) - Livonia, Michigan
Awesome! I had to miss the last one (Daughters birthday > vintage). But I plan to be there for this one. Can't wait, see you in a few weeks.
RE: Oh Boy I Can't Wait For VSL Season 7!
This season of VSL has been a blast to watch. Congratz to Kevin on the amazing run since his 0-3 start.
The decks have been pretty fun to see as well. Lot of different decks and angles that I don't remember see in recent VSL's. The coverage has been very entertaining as well. Thanks @Smmenen and the rest of you for putting on a good show.
Can't wait to see how it end's up on Tuesday between Kevin and Reid.
RE: Becoming a better player
@moorebrother1 I think there is a slight disadvantage to people always knowing what deck you are on, but I think repetition and expertise with a specific deck far out way that. Look at @Montolio as an example. At champs, or any time on-line, every opponent that sits across from him 100% knows he is on shops. But he still wins consistently because of how well he knows the deck.
I think the key for me to getting better (and I'm not great btw) is just learning to slow down, and think a few seconds before each play. The other key has been to remember my mistakes and learn from them, instead of getting tilted by them. I don't like to mess up and lose a match because of it, but if it helps me play better in future matches, then the mistake was not that bad after all.
And above all, I have to have fun. If I'm so focused on winning that I'm not having fun, then I am missing the point of playing the game. Winning is nice, but the purpose of playing a game is to have fun. I find if I keep a good attitude and enjoy the game, no matter how much I am winning or losing, I play at a higher level because I am more relaxed.
RE: Are you playing something other than Aggro Shops or Jeskai? If so, why?
I have been playing Grixis Theives. It's a pile of broken fun cards, and I like stealing the fun from my opponent. Probably not the best deck by far, but has all the things I like about vintage.
