Great looking list. Would be even greater with Paradoxical Outcome.

This event was the best event since the last TSI. I drank enough to kill a Two-headed Giant of Forys and still managed to finish 4th! 2 card monte is a good lifestyle.

@Shaman-Ben No spire of Industry? I want to try one of those. Your deck looks sweet in those pics, I think that's my favorite part of Vintage.

@techguykevin Thanks for posting this kevin! Nice run on Saturday!

Nice to see Bomberman again.
Thats some Serious loot!
Did anyone sideboard any Redbulls for the Jäger matchup?

@Ten-Ten I believe that technology was utilized extensively, along with the tactic of destroying your opponents tastebuds with Malort....

@garbageaggro Yeah, it was a blast and my first top 8 with Dredge!

So many drinks on tables

Sure was a fun event. Red bull was in fact used extensively during the "Yangtime" Top8 announcement. Malort was also utilized to keep myself and the other Top8 competitors in a state of constant distress.

Note on one of the pictures above: It's not actually of Kevin vs myself, but of our RD3 match. (See the light outside)

Any chance we can see the list for
11: Jimmy McCarthy- Bomberman?

@Islandswamp I tried out spire and found that there were too many games where I wanted to be able to cast red elemental blast or ancestral or even demonic consultation and spire would not permit. Its a great card but a bad fit.

My list was pretty similar to Sam's, except strictly better because I cut his bad cards for good ones. List here:

1 Fragmentize
1 Hope of Ghirapur
2 Jace, the Mind Sculptor
1 Mana Crypt
3 Mental Misstep
1 Mox Emerald
1 Mox Jet
1 Mox Pearl
1 Mox Ruby
1 Mox Sapphire
1 Ponder
1 Snapcaster Mage

1 Time Walk
4 Trinket Mage
4 Walking Ballista
