@craw_advantage I do have what seems like two seperate game plans but there were many times where I would have two to 3 phoenix in my hand and a Buried Alive, making the Buried Alive useless. I then added the Bazaar to be able to discard them. The Prized Amalgam's were added as a natural card for synergy with Phoenix coming out of the GY. Sometimes in testing I did not have any of the above but was able to get three hollow one's in play off of the back of one activation of a Bazaar.

The Rootawala's are probably the weakest card and the easiest cut. I am by no means saying this is a fine tuned list but perhaps a start. Getting to three spells is pretty trivial in vintage and wanted to give it a try.

Yes you are indeed correct about probe I should have looked thanks. I felt that this deck and survival were different but I could have been mistaken. Survival feels more like a grindy Toolbox deck that has answers to everything. When i was brewing the above list I was more worried about if it would just be a worse dredge.

I saw the phoenix deck running around in legacy and wanted to see if I could port it to vintage with some obvious improvements. This deck is not 100% refined but has the ability to provide some absolutely busted draws 21 power on the first turn with no interaction etc.
