Yeah, decks in a pretty good position overall. His list is a little odd - 62 cards? So, not entirely sure it's listed correctly but it seems decent. Running Lab Maniac main is interesting, possibly a hedge to the amount of Abzan CoCo he expected?

I hated labman when I ran him. The main reason ad nauseam can be so good is because it can win in response to something lethal, think of it like those old reset/high tide lists. Labman requires some setup to pull off. I'd rather just have two lightning storm.

Also 8 scry lands is pretty slow. The deck really has to hit its mana drops in a timely fashion, not being able to turn 2 a prism hurts. The 8 fast lands plus gemstone mine is some pretty sweet synergy though.

Running 2 Lightning Storm seems best (or 1 Lightning Storm and 1 Conflagrate if you want to have an out to Revoker and Pithing Needles main deck) Still would run a Lab Maniac on the board.

I agree, this land base is pretty slow. I like the Peer through Depths + Mystical Teachings versions (no spoils of the vault), which is much less worried about running fetchlands and a bunch of scry lands to make Spoils better


UPDATE: according to GerryT the list is wrong on WotC's site. It's 60 cards and only running 2 Temple of Enlightenment, not 4
