Hello all! I have been playing Magic since 8th Edition and the original Mirrodin block. For that reason I very much tend to play within the Modern card pool. I love innovative, out-of-the-box decks, which tend to be combo decks, but appreciate the multitude of ways the game can be played.

I've jumped off of most mainstream constructed Magic formats with the prominence of the Ban Era. I was on board with most bans. Modern got some 'shake-up' unbans of Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Stoneforge Mystic which I believe has homogenized the midrange space of the format. Then Karn, the Great Creator got Mycosynth Lattice banned, a ban I feel was against the spirit of bans prior. Oko, Thief of Crowns came and wrecked things, then Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath followed in his footsteps. Those needed to get hit but the need to do so still meant things were rough. But alongside Uro, Mystic Sanctuary , Field of the Dead , Simian Spirit Guide , and Tibalt's Trickery got hit simultaneously. It's getting hard to take Wizards's management of constructed formats seriously. I have taken to trying to form a community around Unrestricted Vintage. I think having a format that demonstrates unrestrained power helps keep other formats in perspective. And frankly, it's just a blast to play the format and I encourage all to give it an honest shake.

I’ve been intrigued by Wandering Archaic  Flip as it is very annoying for any counter spells in the format. But this got me thinking of other cast punishers. Mystic Remora , Rhystic Study , and even Nezahal, Primal Tide (of all things) on the top end. If midrange can develop then this may be a bit weaker but it is a potent response to combo decks that presents a clock in a reasonable amount of time unlike the prison decks. Canthese punishers form a control shell in the format?

I just saw Body of Research from Strixhaven and it seems very akin to Blightsteel Colossus as a control finisher. Not only that but it’s less slot intensive. Big Beaty finishers don’t need all the fancy wording of Emrakul, the Aeons Torn . We just need the tempo of one lethal whack. I’ll be exploring with this card alongside potent tutors like Mystical Tutor with powerful draw spells Ancestral Recall and Brainstorm . We’ll see if Body of Research has the power to make it.
