The others are right...this is just a Modern deck with Necropotence and Strip Mine, both of which are restricted in Vintage (yet you're playing multiple copies of both). This deck isn't even using any of the powerful R/B cards for Vintage or Null Rod.

Demonic Consultation, Demonic Tutor, Wasteland, Sol Ring, Dark Ritual, etc. aren't in here, but they should be. How else are you going to deal with the format's established archetypes, like Mentor, Dredge, or MUD? There isn't enough artifact hate (like Ingot Chewer) or ways to deal with your opponent casting a bunch of spells. Sudden Shock is missing in your sideboard to deal with Monastery Mentor.

Like, where are your Skullclamps with Blood Artist to go with Bloodghast? Or Thorn of Amethyst? Blood Moon? Even Chrome Mox wouldn't hurt.

I'm not sure why you decided to make a Vintage deck instead of a Legacy or Modern deck when the most broken thing this deck does is Sinkhole. Even then, Gush players will just laugh in your face.

I guess you can stroke your ego by beating up on some Standard decks?

Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are always decent picks, but, in my experience, it is better to use your removal slots for more flexible choices, hence I tell you to run cards like Utter End and Vindicate.

Also, Vindicate works as a Sinkhole if you really need it to.

Imo Sinkhole can be cut and Demonic Tutor can be replaced.

About Sinkhole: You can argue that a Glacial Chasm or a Gaea's Cradle are good targets but, I think adding some powerful draw or recursivity engines might be more useful. Yawgmoth's Will/Magus of the Wheel, for example. (ALL HAIL YAWGMOTH) Let the opponents do what they want but you will do your stuff faster than theirs.

About Diabolic Tutor: Beseech the Queen is better. In an average game you won't activate Diabolic Tutor until turn 3 or 4. By then you have about 3-4 lands in play. Also, Beseech the Queen can be cast for the same cost of Diabolic Tutor, for or for white mana only. Flexibility is always a good thing. Also, you could run Grim Tutor, I mean, your are playing Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim.

I've just become aware of it, you are running Karmic Guide and Ashnod's Altar but not Reveillark?! I mean, those 3 create an infinite combo of mana. With Altar of Dementia instead of Ashnod's Altar you can mill everyone to 0. Karmic Guide and Reveillark enable pretty nasty combos and are a wincon, pls, run both.

Viscera Seer is a good pick too. It works really well with the combo.

PD: Question, what enchantment/artifact hate or spot removals are you running?

PD2: Have you considered running razaketh, the foulblooded ?

I would same get a playset of one of the three land enchantments.

Sinkhole could help a lot in destroying lands that you don't enchanted and forcing the opponent to use the lands and take the damage. Other land destruct cards could help too.

I could see Faerie Tauntings being a possible, neat addition to this deck.

Your first question isnt a matter of opinion. Cards like Sinkhole havent been printed at common on MTGO, which is how legality in the format is determined.

Paper Pauper is its own animal. There is no offical ban list since pauper is only supported by WOTC online. Many people use the online banlist or the card kingdom banlist. Personally, my buddies and I just play whatever we find.

As for balancing the the format. I think it is in a pretty good place are now. i play boros kitty and stompy (when playing seriously), however, so my opinion maybe biased :)

PG7m on Nonsensical bannings!?

Just really wanted to hear opinions on why a card would be banned "Online" but remain legal in Paper Pauper? Example: Sinkhole. Legal only in paper. And yes Sinkhole was a common in Alpha and Beta.

Would also like to hear suggestions for cards that you think should be banned or unbanned to balance the format.

odinjundfan: My issue with Fulminator Mage is that Goblin Dark-Dwellers can't recast it. If Sinkhole ever sees a reprint in Modern, I would definitely scrap this build and go Jund or RB with Sinkhole and Fulminator.

ElfQueso: I've never seen Mizzium Mortars in this build before, but that is interesting. Are you able to overload it a lot?
