Week 5 decklists are up:

https://www.hipstersofthecoast.com/2019/02/vintage-super-league-season-9-week-5-decklists/

Shops will be getting it's first airtime (week 5!) and Dredge and combo appear again.

The real story is Seth's Oath deck. I love Oath as much as the next guy but it looks poorly positioned in this specific field. He may beat Andy but Seth is a dog in the PO matchup and has not a lot of Dredge hate in SB. Could be a rough week. I'm rooting for you Seth!

It wasn't clear to me until re-reading the announcement, Format Points (FPs), which are used to enter the Format Challenges, can be earned starting on December 2nd, 8am PST.

I have run Taigam in a UWR xerox shell after Brian Kelly put up some finishes with the deck a while back. It is tough to get on the board with a deck lean on mana sources such as this. He does pitch to force of will though.

Put this in the Oath discussion but that thread seems dead...

I'm looking for some help in developing a sideboard plan for my current Oath build. The build is a typical Kelly Oath style, see below:

My sideboard is:

0_1536606045977_Oath SB.JPG

Sideboard plan (draft):
Shops: +Gisele, +2 Grudge, Claim, +2 Sudden Shock, -3 Misstep, -Flusterstorm, -Gush, -Library
PO: +Flusterstorm, +Pyroblast, -2 Sylvan Library (Seems like more can be done. Plus artifact removal?)
Xerox: +Pyroblast, +2 Sudden Shock, +Stormbreath, -Ancient Grudge, -Spyglass, -Null Rod, -Island (?)
Dredge: +4 Crypt, +Spellbomb, -Null Rod, -Library of A, -Gush, -2 Sylvan Library

Open to suggestions on plan, sideboard (especially creatures and what are in/out) and main. Thanks.

Sorry, I'm dumb. I was searching "TMD vintage". It now shows when I search "THE MANA DRAIN". I'm positive the capitalization helps.

Andy, I can't find TMD Vintage Podcast using my phones podcast player (DoggCatcher). Not sure how podcast hosting works but it seems that imbedding an audio file in a blog post does not allow me to see it.

Any plans to put them on itunes or have a dedicated html feed for the podcast?

Google has failed me, I cannot find the Battlebond product page for MTGO release details. I am thinking these will be included in the Treasure Chests as this is a specialty draft (ala Conspiracy) set but I could be wrong. Anyone have a definitive answer on how the Battlebond cards will come to MTGO?

@protoaddct The art for the entire Battlebond set is terrible.

@joshuabrooks Two separate programs, at least at the onset of Arena. The scope from WOTC appears to be standard and forward.
