Undefeated in the Swiss of the Vintage Challenge. I think I won on turn 1 in all 6 of my matches. This is probably the most fun deck I've ever played in any format, and it is very powerful with the London Mulligan rule.
This makes the 5th Top 8 out of my last 7 Challenges! pic.twitter.com/7WKNIpJ7r7

My preference would be to London mulligan in all formats supported on Arena and Vancouver Scry in formats not supported on Arena. But I won't lose much sleep (pillow = pile of cash etc) either way.

“Yeah, when I Thoughtseize them I always write it all down and next turn have no idea what they have”

Tempest Block draft was good to me 🙂 (I think I also went undefeated at US Nats in the middle there) https://t.co/vMCaOKepz1
