TSI Hazard's Birthday 4.0 March 2nd 2019 Results!

We had 29 people come out for the Team Serious Invitational to battle some vintage to celebrate Hazard’s birthday for the 4th year in a row!

The drinks:


We messaged Land Grant Brewing in Columbus, Ohio who graciously gave us some free beer! They have employees that play Magic but have never heard of the card Land Grant, so we gave them a foil Land Grant as a Thank You! Thanks Jackie!

Pictures of opened Shaman box pls 🙂

@matori I'm trying to hunt down pictures from people that took them but haven't gotten any responses.

Ben's box had:

  • Animate Dead print

  • Foil Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver

  • Miscut Revised Rocket Launcher

  • Alpha Mountain

  • 2 fbb Chinese Llanowar Elves

  • An envelope that could be traded for 2 deck boxes.

  • The envelope had a Tundra in it.

  • The 2 deck boxes had Middle School staples.

There was also a suitcase provided as a prize. It had a bunch of random stuff in it! Nat tweeted a few of the pictures I took after I opened it:


It had:

  • The Junior Classics 2 Stories of Wonder and Magic book by Collier

  • Helm of Obedience

  • 1000 piece puzzle

  • Nikolai Vodka

  • Clown nose

  • Sun glasses

  • Stickers

  • Deck Box

  • Toothbrush

  • 2 pieces of Mox Chocolate chocolate

  • a No one can beat my Dad mug

  • a Rick Astley Whenever You Need Somebody cassette tape

  • Tylenol

  • Shower cap

  • Pojo's Unofficial Total Magic the gathering Special Magic 10th anniversary book

Apparently the Tylenol and Shower Cap were already in the suitcase when it was acquired.

Every time I read what was in those, they get better.

This is the greatest happening that I've ever seen or comprehended

It should be noted that the Predator poster had nearly every Magic card with 'predator' in the name as well.
