Honestly, the land is the gem here.

RE: Most Optimal Sub-Optimal Deck Construction
@brass-man this is the same approach I take when building vintage decks, since I have no power and locals despise play test cards. I get laughed at when I run shock-lands in vintage but nobody laughs when I beat them with the deck. It's so much more difficult putting together a budget deck this way but in the end, it's well thought out and you know exactly why each card is in the 75 and it's purpose.

@poxeveryturn kudos. Very nice list. Great write up.
RE: How can I build a playable mono blue control(or combo) deck ?
At first glance, i can tell you trinket mage and glimmer of genius don't fit.
Instead of Glimmer I'd use Fact or Fiction, and if you're running trinket mage, some utility artifacts would be nice. Just depends what you usually play against.
How often are you able to cast Emrakul?
How do you finish your games, usually? Via Sphinx, Maniac, or BSZ?
RE: Masticore Article
Reading this made me feel warm inside. Gave me goosebumps just looking at the picture of that magnificent masterpiece hanging on your wall. Gave me a bit of hope, knowing maybe, just maybe some day I, too, will acquire the pieces I seek. (Probably not that Morphling, though, lol) Wether it be cardboard or canvas.
This is the kind of articles i remember reading on TMD, not too long ago. Thank you, Nick.
RE: 7 January 2018 Proxy Vintage @Brash Brewing Co [11 players]
You guys are some of the best. Wish I could make it to these. San Antonio isn't that far off but far enough at the moment. Thanks for posting these and letting us get a glimpse of these moments in time.
RE: [RIX] Blood Sun
@vaughnbros what I'm saying is that with the errata on vale and ruins, the sac happens before it would even enter the battlefield. It doesn't make sense for sun to affect these before the sac is made. ETB effects are different. Because...wait for it...its entering the battlefield. Vale and ruins errata acts more of an additional cost to even play the lands, not an ETB effect. It's lazy, like I stated before, to just say under new rules this is also taken care of when in reality it does not.
