All in all, though, I wouldn't say that deck building is much different than it used to be. True Fast Advance out of anything other than CI is rare, so there's that, but Titan can come close to the speed, if they manage to draw things in the right order.
I do agree that reliable R&D lock tools are further between than they used to be. Without Medium and RDI, events are the new go-to. I've seen people using things like Find the Truth and SpyCams, but these fail to Miraju, which is getting played in more and more decks. As noted, Turning Wheel is super popular as well, and combines wonderfully with run events.
