    Welder Academy

    So I'm not really sure where the best place for Vintage stuff is or if there are forums so I figured I'd post here what I've been working on for the past few months. When I was originally getting into Vintage I basically just browsed lists for something that piqued my interest and an original Onkel list was definitely up my alley. I have tweaked and changed some things that suit my style more and have talked with him as well (sadly he's moved to more of a counterspell grixis/UR build) whereas this is more of a turbo artifact academy deck. His original one was back in November or something and is the shell for this current list, but I've been happy with this in 2-mans and getting more comfortable with it the past few months.

    I managed to 4-0 a Vintage daily here: http://www.mtggoldfish.com/tournamen...9485648#online so I think the deck definitely has legs. I'm pretty new to the vintage scene and am in the process of getting this list within 15 proxy range so hopefully I can bop around the northeast and get some paper games in the next year.

    Anyways here is the list currently:


    Lands:
    2 Volcanic fetch
    2 Volcanic Island
    1 island
    4 Seat of the Synod
    1 Tolarian Academy
    1 Minamo, School at Water's Edge


    Artifact Mana:
    1 Lotus
    5 Mox
    1 Mana Crypt
    1 Mana Vault
    1 Sol Ring
    2 Mox Opal
    1 Lotus Petal


    Card Draw:
    4 Gitaxian Probe
    4 Thoughtcast
    1 Ancestral Recall
    1 Dig Through Time
    1 Ponder

    Wheels:
    1 Timetwister
    1 Wheel of Fortune
    1 Time Spiral
    1 Memory Jar
    1 Windfall

    Other Blue Shit:
    1 Time Walk
    1 Hurkyl's Recall
    1 Tinker
    1 Transmute artifact
    1 Mystical Tutor

    Artifacts:
    4 Expedition Map
    2 Voltaic Key
    1 Time Vault
    3 Sensei's Divining Top
    1 Defense Grid
    1 Trinisphere


    Greatest Creature in the History of the Game:
    2 Goblin Welder

    A tinker scrub:
    1 Myr Battlesphere

    Utility Walker:
    1 Tezzeret


    SideBoard
    4 Force of Will
    2 Chain of Vapor
    2 Steel Sabotage
    4 Grafdigger's Cage
    2 Defense Grid
    1 petrified field



    So basically this list plays like a pseudo-Belcher in that gets out of control very fast, but you get more lands and can play a slower game thoughtcasting. I'm still a vintage noob so I will refrain for now in posting matchups and stuff since some things I say will most likely be wrong and I am still practicing a bunch to better learn other matchups. The only one I will comment on is dredge, which is insanely positive. I tried out grixis artifact builds but ended up liking this higher variance style more, even if black tutors are the shit.

    Any vintage aficionados want to chime in here?

    If anyone still hasn't seen the mini-report I put it in the source's legacy tournament report section and just posted it over on the mana drain as well.

    I assume the Tezzeret you run is the Seeker sort of Tezzeret?
