The wheel went 4/0 , and lost in the final in it's last outing.
It is just as broken as a whole heap of other Blue based Vintage decks.
This one works, and has a whole heap more land.
I can justify every single card choice, and often not with expected justification.
It is based on being a broken power deck, not on my play skills.
Gifts Ungiven may be the better card in totality, but not in play.
Gifts forces me to break MY brain.
Fact is quicker and breaks THEIR brain.
Fact is better, in the game after.
Lots of cards are better against all the OTHER blue based decks, and often miss me entirely.
Chalice for 0 or 1, disenchant effects, or tax effects are just less effective.
And I am playing massed land destruction with 4 Wasteland and a Strip mine.
Balance is a monster reset button too.
Many, many cards have gone in, out, returned, and left again.
Remaking it each time is just remaking the wheel.
