Working with Metal

Hi Everyone!

I have been back and forth on my feelings about Vintage. It's great because the format isn't shaken up a lot and it's nice to be able to play a deck for a long time. It's comforting to know my Vintage deck is there when I want to play it.

My first Vintage deck was Stax. It was the "big shops" build, with Kuldotha Forgemasters and various "tinker" targets. I have toyed with the build but never made any major changes until this week.

I have seen versions with Goblin Welders and with Metalworkers. The welder being a red creature was too big of a drawback. I decided to try out Metalworkers because I looked at them as essentially four more big mana producers. I sometimes can't cast my big spells like sundering titan or Staff of Nin in my previous build. I played a few rounds with the Metalworkers and Lightning Greaves.

I'm not completely convinced it's better because with the metagame running wild with aggro mentor/pyromancer decks, the metalworker has a huge target on its head if I don't get Greaves on it right away.

Below is the match I played. Below the video is the decklist I used. Happy viewing!
