Vintage Doomsday Deck List Analysis for 2022.06.18-19

With the Magic Online 20th Anniversary events last week, we had an increase in played Vintage. Sadly, it seems like not all of these deck lists made it to WotC's site. Big surprise, eh?
Even though discoverN doesn't show up, their latest list is here four times. Write that down in your copybook.

Thoughts

Main Core: 55 cards Side Core: 6 cards

While the mains are converging, there are some drastic sideboard differences this week.


ravidel85's main Murktide Regent seems to conflict with also choosing to play Treasure Cruise, but I do like the choice of another basic Island if this is going to be the plan.


The Monastery Mentor plan is popular right now. I found Sedgemoor Witch to do a good job. Honestly, I'm just lazy and don't want to buy a paper Tundra and try to keep what I play on MO and paper the same. Probably not the best idea. That said, I'd love to see more people chime in on the how the Witch feels instead of Mentor. Getting it out with a Dark Ritual has already saved my ass a few times.

ravidel85's main choices freed up some sideboard slots which were used on extra Graveyard and Artifact hate. I'm not sure if I like four copies of Hurkyl's Recall. Being able to counter stuff from Shops with Steel Sabotage is powerful. That said, nothing quite does what Hurkyl's Recall does.
