I just created an Untap.in account and some decks, though I haven't actually tried playing yet. Username is snaxydippers.

My bad - I focused on a nitpick, which came off as more negative than I intended and which isn’t what you guys or TMD need. As always, great show and appreciate what you guys do.

@stuart said in SMIP # 92: Magic 2020 Vintage Set Review:

when at the time of recording it was already putting up strong results.

Sorry, I guess this is where I misspoke - you're right that Mystic Forge didn't have any finishes yet. My intended point was that it's more enjoyable and interesting to listen to you guys make predictions when no one knows anything yet. In this case, there were already Mystic Forge decks running around at the time of recording, so the predictions were less interesting than usual.

I enjoyed this episode in the way I always enjoy SMIP - it's the best MtG podcast out there, and I'm really grateful for you and Kevin for what you do.

However, it was a weird experience listening to predictions of cards that were already released and seeing play. In the future, I'd maybe consider a different approach to predictions when the cards are already out there. Betting big on Mystic Forge isn't really an insightful call when at the time of recording it was already putting up strong results.

I haven't gotten to listen to it yet, but the folks at Eternal Durdles just released an episode discussing NYSE.

Are they already getting more sophisticated at this and playing decks that look slightly more real? The MTGO player Buneca, who ran that Heartless Summoning deck, just placed twice in the 7/21 League with this Bolas's Citadel list and with this Mystic Forge list. It's possible these are legitimate finishes, though things like 16 Swamps and sideboards composed entirely of "search your opponent's library for cards and exile them" effects make me pretty skeptical.

Congrats on the run and great report! Read the Ophiomancer in your board as Ovinomancer and was simultaneously very confused, but not surprised given the pilot.

While I’m absolutely opposed to Brawl/Singleton replacing Vintage (invalidates too many strategies), I’d happily try playing it if someone organized a tournament.

I have serious fomo about missing this, but can't wait to see results. Hope everyone attending has an awesome time!
