Vintage Doomsday Deck List Analysis for 2022.05.21-22

These six lists are very similar. Granted, four of the six lists are from two players, so that is to be expected. Still, we're seeing a big convergence, and solid results.

Thoughts

Main Core: 57 cards Side Core: 13 cards


The only big difference here is that discoverN is on an extra copy of Flusterstorm and Force of Negation instead of Duress and Daze. The true curiosity comes from Tainted Indulgence sticking around. The card must be doing some solid work.


Sideboards are fairly uninteresting this week other than the the numbers of Murktide Regent continuing to rise. As I said last week, it is a solid choice against Hogaak decks as long as they are not packing Pyroblast.
