Vintage: A Shaman’s Tale

Vintage is one of the most unique and powerful formats you can experience. Vintage is turn one Jace, the Mind Sculptor. Vintage is turn one Trinisphere and a Lodestone Golem. Vintage is also taking 13 points of damage from a Gorilla Shaman. Vintage is also both players cast Force of Will, Mana Drain and Flusterstorm they both have no cards in hand until the board state is just land. I cannot recommend it enough. Whether you print off decks to play against your friends, or you’re lucky enough to be able to play in paper. Now with vintage becoming available online, the format is seeing a lot more widespread play and I am excited to see what the Internet can come up with. Read More

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.
