No matter which conversation thread you choose to look at after this weekend’s initial Kaladesh-legal SCG Open — the breakout performance of vehicles as an archetype, Aetherworks Marvel swinging for the fences and sort of getting there, or Chandra, Torch of Defiance mostly hanging out on the sidelines — there’s one giant narrative that none can escape.
Of course, I’m talking about the fact that 32 copies of Smuggler’s Copter that showed up in the top 8. It wasn’t 25% of the top 8. It wasn’t 40%. It wasn’t 50% or 60% or 75%. Literal 100% of the top 8 played four Smuggler’s Copter. Every single deck.
