Yeah we often tell people overseas that we are speaking to them from the future.
Happy New Year!
I hope that 2019 is a good one for you, filled with love and laughter.

One important piece of the discussion: Wizards supports proxies "made for personal, non-commercial use, even if that usage takes place in a store."

Dune-Brood Nephilim , though not actually Legendary, makes Sand creatures, so it shows up periodically in Casual EDH Dune decks. A couple of examples (though I notice they're using Child of Alara as the "official" Commander): Dune, by mystiedragonfly and Frank Herbert's Dune Theme Deck, by PhyrexianWarlord.
Those are the only ones of which I'm aware, but I'll poke around (e.g. with this search) if I get a chance!

There may be a better way to do it, but the Advanced Search can get pretty close. It's under the magnifying glass icon in the upper right, then Deck Search, then Advanced Search.
As hoped, it returns all the decks I've built with the card. Unfortunately, it also catches any decks that I've commented on with the card. But it's relatively easy to ignore those, so maybe that'll work for you ...

As an additional P.S. ...
2019 is just getting started of course, but we've actually had six Artifact hate cards in the Top 20, over the last two weeks: Abrade #2, Ceremonious Rejection #6, Nature's Claim #7, Stony Silence #9, Ancient Grudge #14, Knight of Autumn #20.

But they didn't make the Top 20 in the past. Now they do.

P.S. I got curious about the change in Artifact hate over time, so I looked it up on MTGtop8.
Here's some data on the Top 20 most played sideboard cards in Modern, each year:
- 2018: Stony Silence #1, Ancient Grudge #5, Nature's Claim #11, Reclamation Sage #16, Ceremonious Rejection #17.
- 2017: Stony Silence #1, Ancient Grudge #6, Nature's Claim #14, Ceremonious Rejection #17, Reclamation Sage #20.
- 2016: Ancient Grudge #1, Stony Silence #2, Nature's Claim #9.
- 2015: Ancient Grudge #1, Stony Silence #4, Nature's Claim #11.
- 2014: Ancient Grudge #1, Stony Silence #9.
If anything, it appears Artifact hate is going up over time, rather than down

With KCI, Tron, and Hardened Affinity all towards the top of the format, I believe Artifact hate is relatively high, at least in Competitive play. And Combo decks almost always have either Artifact hate (usually Nature's Claim ) or a bounce spell, to remove an opposing Damping Sphere / Grafdigger's Cage /etc.
FWIW, UR Phoenix usually runs 3-5 hate cards in some combination of Ceremonious Rejection , Abrade , Ancient Grudge , and Shattering Spree . You're right thought that Hollow One doesn't run dedicated hate that often; not sure why.

I'm a big fan of Wild Defiance when Bolt is popular, and as I type this it's the most played spell in Modern. S'kite is better IMO when Push and Path are more popular. Please take that with some healthy skepticism though, as I haven't sleeved up Infect in about a year :-/
I've never played Finks in Infect, but the card's very good (though Skullcrack is a serious bummer). And though Nissa VOZ is fine (in Ponza, anyways), I'd never bring her in for Burn.
If you haven't already done so, you might also ask over on r/Infect.

I'm 100% behind Catacomb Crocodile as best flavor text of the set.
Especially if we think of Rat and Zombie as the Guilds, and Croc as Bolas ...

According to MaRo, getting rid of mana burn "freed up design space ... removed what we knew to be a problem for beginners ... [and] removed a rule that wasn't carrying its weight."

Teysa and Tajik are kind of A Thing, too. I've got to find the stories for that though ...

They put new images up very fast, they always mention where they got the images (so we know they've been officially spoiled), and they have excellent image quality.
Not to mention they have hilarious translations for the foreign cards. Panic! At the Disco, anyone? :-D
