Thoughts

Vertyx_ and Condescend ran the exact same 75 and MaxMagicer said they pulled an old list to play. So nothing particularly wild here.

I didn't make the top 32 on Sunday (33rd, to be precise) but I tried a Rebuild main to hedge against Shops and Urza's Saga. It was terrible against Shops. It was not at all close to being cast even with Dark Rituals in my hand. Perhaps we need to move to two Force of Negations or some way to deal with this hate as I often find if I do not have a Force effect on the draw against Shops, I lose.
