@dracomnisgt said in Powerless Vintage Painter?:

Hello all!
I really don't have much of anything in the way of Legacy or Vintage cards, sadly. I'm just asking what a good deck could be good to start with besides Dredge.
I also don't have a playgroup near me, which is why i am trying to get one started. Any ideas on how to start a Vintage playgroup?

2 things:

  1. If you're starting your own playgroup, I recommend allowing proxies, in which case a powerless build isn't necessary. In my opinion, without proxies, any non-established Vintage scene is likely to quickly die as people can't play the decks they play on modo, see on streams, etc.
  2. I'm pretty sure there's been multiple threads on this but I can only find two, both of which are podcasts. Wak-Wak and Lone Star Lhurgoyfs

My favorite unpowered deck is Elves. It feels like a broken combo deck, without the giant price tag. It is still to this day the best performing deck at Eternal Weekend for me, and I played it back in 2013.

If you can't afford power, I'd guess you also can't afford Workshops and if you don't have either of those, Painter is going to be basically a slightly better Legacy deck.

@blindtherapy said in (C19) Wildfire Devils:

they choose the card, so the first triggers are all just going to hit counterspells, removal with no target, etc until those cards are gone.

To clarify, the player that is randomly chosen is the one that chooses the card. 50% of the time, that's going to be you choosing good cards from your graveyard. The other 50% of the time, it's going to be your opponent choosing bad cards.

I can't find the previous thread to check but hasn't this been a problem in the past? As I recall last year, they said they'd get the info out something like 30 days in advance and it was like 11:30 ET on the last possible day when it was published.

@jclnc007 said in 7/10 split:

So that’s my take on 7/10 split. I made it for fun. So what does everyone think?

I think that is a list of Vintage legal cards.

What do you think?

Is there a reason you chose those cards over the standard build?

How has your testing gone?
