Also, which would you rather run - Ancient Stone Idol, or Emrakul the Promised End?
The Idol works with tinker/welder and is arguably better with sneak attack/TTB/Feldon since it leaves behind a 6/12 dude. Emrakul flies, and has a cast trigger (although it's probably not getting hardcast often). Both work reasonably well with reanimator or Show and Tell.

Me neither. It seems situational, a huge double-edged sword, pretty weak versus removal and it has a very narrow range of white decks that would actually play it effectively.
Sun Titan supports combos, archetypes, and it's more versatile and flexible, and does a much better job of guaranteeing value. Sun Titan has aged really well for us; it's far better now than it used to be, and I'm certainly not going to remove it for a card that will go into less decks and contribute to far less interesting lines of play.

Quote from Tjornan »Hi all,
In summary/ TLDR
This dataset, as it currently stands, is question-generating, not as question-answering. When the data tells us something that doesn’t agree with our experience, it might be time to start questioning the reliability of those experiences.
How you choose to interpret it is up to you, but I see this as a developing tool for a community that historically has based card choices entirely on personal experience.
