This podcast by @CyrusCG and @9thonbreakers is amazing http://topdownlegacy.libsyn.com/episode-9-how-to-prepare-for-a-big-event

I worked hard last year to become a better player and I tried several things that are recommended in this podcast and there are things here that I wish I had done too.

I know some look at Vintage casually and some take it very seriously. I play this game for many reasons and being competitive is part of it. Knowing how to prepare for events was very foreign to me.

For episode 37, Geoff Moes (@ThallidTosser on Twitter), Nat Moes (@GrandpaBelcher), and Josh Chapple (@joshchapple) talk with Steve McGrew and Jake Hilty (@TuringTested, our first returning guest) about a new, fun format we’ve been enjoying. It’s not as old as Old School or as new as Modern – it’s Middle School!

http://www.eternalcentral.com/serious-vintage-episode-37-returning-to-middle-school/

Here’s the timestamped table of contents for your listening ease and enjoyment:
00:25 – Introducing Middle School
39:54 – Upcoming Middle and Old School Events
42:30 – Shameless Plug
43:20 – Food and Drink for #MTGCleveland
Full runtime – 55:52

Also, until February 15, we’re selling Serious Vintage T-shirts! Hurry!

    @thewhitedragon69 said in [WAR] Narset, Parter of Veils:

    @horologium I know I'm in the minority here, but I actually see her squashing of draw to be a good thing.

    It's not like this static ability is original or anything. There are now a handful of effects that do this, not least of which is Leovald, Spirit of the Labyrinth, and Notion Thief, but Narset does feel more obnoxious than others. I think that's less a commentary on Narset than the fact that cards like Preordain are so widely played in the format, and Narset is so pesky for them.

    So much hustle and bustle has been happening over the summer to the vintage format, but what will happen once the dust settles?

    Alternate Worlds in Hunt Valley, MD will be holding two Sanctioned Vintage Trials on August 24th and 25th.

    Come out and earn some byes for the 2019 North American Vintage Championship!
