I'm a bit confused by the Garruk comment. These cards don't seem to have much in common , nor do I remember Garruk being played in Vintage at all.

Aww, we'll that's silly.

Fine, Forbidden Orchard, Donate and... some way to force them to tap for mana!

This works very very well with Forbidden Orchard.

If Myco Lattice is in play, you can any nonland card off the top, in case someone wants to try this in a colored Shop list.

I see why this is not templated like Tarmogoyf, it would be a pain to keep track of the P/T at all times.

However, Top is a pretty bad card to play in Shops in general since it has very little shuffle effects. You'd need to tweak the deck quite a bit to make it worthwhile.

@desolutionist True, but is that better than having any of the big hasty flyers? It's easier to cast, but there is also a chance you end up with a 8/8 that gives a 3-4 turn clock.

For Shops, this seems miles better than any of the 4 mana draw engines they had so far. It's basically Experimental Frenzy that doesn't stop you from playing cards in your hand.

Meh, to me Voltaic key is barely an iconic card, it saw little play before Time Vault got errated, and the art is very very forgettable, it's just very brown and unoriginal to me.

I'm all for it, simply because I prefer to play with proxies than to not play.

We had plenty of tournaments 10 years ago, and even a provincial Vintage championship with invitations during the golden age of Vintage.

Then the prices started to rise, most older players in my community decided to cash out and get a down payment on a house instead.

Very few younger players were able to afford competitive decks, even in a 10 proxy event. It ended up being the players who kept their cards crushing the younger players, who just never came back, and I don't blame them. I wouldn't play a format where I get blown out just because I don't have money to be competitive.

Within 2 years, all the tournaments stopped and now I can't play competitive Vintage at all, even if I still have all my card.
