    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: 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:

    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

    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

    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

    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?
