A few notes from the day:

I realized that the City of Brass should be Mana Confluence but did not get around to reprinting them before the event. As such, in the last round, @gkraigher did the civilized thing and crushed me with a City in a Bottle.

In round 2, I hardcast bridge from Below off of Black Lotus to send a message to my opponent.

I finished 3-1-1. My draw should have been a win but I am not actually very good at magic, and sometimes the allure of powerful things leads me to making bad plays. My loss was to Shops. In game one I kept a double bazaar hand on the play. I set up a decent start with my first bazaar, but my opponent played Sorcerous Spyglass on Turn One and shut me off. This was followed by 2 weak dredges and getting beat down by an army of Golems.

Calling me civilized for putting your city into a bottle makes my mind go off in weird tangents. I appreciate the compliment, but that might have been the last City in a Bottle I ever cast in Vintage. Time will tell.

My decklist should be called Mud Lies because, even though that's the decklist I submitted to you, it's about 20 cards off the list I actually played.

If I remember correctly, you cast the bridge from below off lotus specifically to play around deathrite shaman....

I played Saheeli Rai Oath again. Deck is almost the same from last tournament.

I love that one could say Shaman Ben played a more normal deck for this event, by playing Dredge.
