@listlik I've been playing off and on since the unrestriction... and it's fine. It's soft to Leovold and Null Rod and anything like those. My opinion is that Paradoxical Storm is faster and more reliable.
Vintage MTGO player since 2015.

RE: Vintage Masters and Vintage Cube on Limited Resources
And some more links to VMA archetypes and guides because why not.
Vintage Masters and Vintage Cube on Limited Resources
With VMA being the featured flashback draft on MTGO next week, I wanted to share the Limited Resources primer episode on the format.
Also, LR did a cube overview. Good listening for prepping for the Vintage Cube. Enjoy!
RE: Bringing the Fight to 'Shops
I have enjoyed this discussion about fighting 'Shops and certainly have a couple of great takeaways from it. I have updated my mana base to the following:
LAND & MANA SOURCES (23)1 Mox Ruby1 Sol Ring2 Island1 Plains3 Tundra
In addition to this, I have cut Stony Silence from the main (it is in the sideboard for the time being) and a Preordain from the main. I have swapped the Abrade for a Fragmentize.
Bringing the Fight to 'Shops
The first step in fighting Workshop decks with a blue-based cantrip deck in our new metagame is most certainly examining the mana base. Here is a deck I have been having success with (against non-'Shops decks):
Land & Mana Sources (20)1 Mox Ruby1 Island3 Tundra
Spells (32)1 Ponder1 Gush1 Abrade
Using this as a starting point, how many mana sources should be played? Examining the Top 8 lists (albeit, they are Oath lists, necessitating 4 Orchards) shows 22 to 25 mana sources. Is it correct add a Plains or Island as well as the two off color Moxen? Should one off-color Mox be included in the main with the additional basic and remaining Mox come out of the sideboard in 'Shops matchups? Are more drastic measures needed in overhauling the mana base?
