    Argivian Find is still a good card here. It gets both artifacts and enchantments.

    So online results have been booming with breach decks. Jeskai being the most successful, but others have been doing good as well with other lists mentioned in this thread.

    This deck archetype seems to have taken off pretty much from the get go, which is fairly rare these days in legacy. I've been doing extremely well at locals since making this deck and a lot of people want to see breach gone.

    Obviously, everyone in this thread wants to play it lol. But putting your bias to the side for a second, after playing with it, do you think it's too much? Or is it in a good spot? Or are people just not fighting it in the right way?

    The more I play it the less I think it's actually that good. It might just be me, but I personally haven't done very well with the deck. To give some context, I'm doing about as well on it as I did on Cheeri0s. A lot of different types of hate hit it. To the point where it feels like my opponents are almost always bringing in 6-10 cards. None of which I want to see. I don't think it's anywhere near strong enough to need a banning.

    Give the meta some time to adjust to the new cards. The longer Breach is in the meta, the better people will now how to play against us. For the time being, I don't think Breach warrants a ban. IRL playing seems to show that the deck is good, but not any more broken then ANT or TES in the hands of a good player.

    It is funny, I was just thinking about a more grindy deck that runs Breach. Stifle, Wasteland, "free" counterspells, and then your combo pieces. Almost like a delver or miracles shell maybe.

    Funnily enough, Breach in vintage is apparently in Oath Decks of all things.

    I see plenty of places to cut cards to be able to jam our combo in.

    I feel you can use Shock-Lands fine, I mean it won't be optimal and your win percentage against aggro and tempo decks (including dredge) will decrease (i have no clue how much). Those decks can, during longer games, get us down to 5 or below prior to us pulling through (if we do) - so running shocks will effectively make you lose those games that you could've won.
