Hey all, I'd just like to get some responses from everyone as to the cards they always wanted to try out in T1, but just didn't fit them into a deck, or never tried them out in  an actual tournament.  Have fun and don't be embarrassed about posting stupid Ideas,  I do it all the time !

Juntu Stakes, back when everybody was running 4 Welders in everything, and UR Fish was still good.

Skullclamp - This card is a ridiculous draw engine, but it's so hard to build the proper deck around it.

Winter Orb and Suppression Field.  I want to make them work in a Stax variant, but just can't.

Pretty much my entire Wild Zombies deck.

Specificly Zombie Infestation cause I own a Whole bunch of kick ass zombie tokens (including some hobby japan ones) and wanted to play them in a somewhat competitive deck, since the last time ZI was viable was old T2 (up untill Frichorid became the hotness)

Goblin Lore / Control of the court
Sylvan Library <--- i've acctually top 8ed with these in my deck but it was a while ago. Brainstorm every turn is nothing to sneeze at
Metalworker <--- considdering how broken this is it should probably get more love, though the Europeans love it apparently but only in budget
Any non dragon reanimation strategy

I am also a big fan of Control of the Courts/goblin lore, it is undercosted for what it does.  I secretly have been testing life of the loam in certain decks.  It seems to be a solid card.

Mirari.  Failing that, Sylvan Library seconded.  I DID play with the Sylvan Library in Sapphire Oath circa 2003, but I was hardly competitive then.

I will break into your house while you aren't home and disguise myself as a chair. Then I will leave before you get home, but there will be a place at your table where I was a chair and you will wonder why there isn't a chair there. Then later I will leave the chair disguise on your doorstep and you will realize what has happened and you will be afraid all the time. Helter Skelter mother fuckers!

King Cheetah - if you can make a Deck that uses this guy.  man.  Man.  You would be my hero.  My favorite Magic Card EVER!

Telling Time - Been trying to fit it somewhere.  not sure where or what it belongs in.

Force Spike - Cause it has cool art and I am thinking about picking up some Japanese ones if I could use them.   Very Happy

Ramosian Sergeant -> Whipcorder is something I tried to build a Fish deck around. It wasn't disruptive enough.

Abolish was also tried. Not good enough.

True Believer. I played in Chicago, but it was actually terrible. I really wanted it to be good, as it is amazing with Aether Vial, but it is not good enough for Vintage.

I don't have any fast mana because Chalice for 0 takes them out.  It's really obvious to the elite magic community that you should try to play around Chalice.  Anyone who doesn't is dumb.  Moxes are really overrated anyway.  I have lands that are alot better.  And come on, LOTUS KILLS ITSELF.  How am I supposed to win the permanent race against Stax when LOTUS KILLS ITSELF???

I actually have played Mystic Remora and it is such a beating against TPS.

My card would be:

Illusionary Mask

I love it, but it is unfortunately unplayable at the moment.
