Hard Control in Vintage

Landstill is a Vintage deck that’s been around for years, and I’m going to show you that hard control is still a force to be reckoned with! The concept of the deck is simple, counter anything relevant that your opponent plays, attack their mana base , recoup card advantage with Crucible of Worlds, Standstill and Jace, the Mind Sculptor and eventually find a way to win. There are parallels between Landstill and Workshops. The significant difference between the decks is that Workshops acts pro-actively to lock its opponent out of the game while Landstill players deal with their opponents re-actively on the stack, using Standstil as a tool to ensure that they win the card advantage war and the battle for dominance on the stack.
