7/23 - Denton, TX - Madness Comics

On July 23rd we had 18 people join us for an afternoon of Vintage, broken plays, and friendship!

After 5 rounds of swiss we had our top 8.

David Carroll - Standstill
Justin Hrala - Oath
Shawn Hughes - Eldrazi (playing in his first Vintage event ever & beating me in Round 1 of the Swiss)
William Buck - Merfolk (I think this was his first Vintage as well)
John Hessler - Hate Bears
Tom Andrews - Oath
Josh McCurley - 2-Card Monty (Hey, that's me!)
Mike Ames - Lantern Control

David wins over Mike
Justin beat me quite handily
Shawn beat Tom (fixed if you saw the previous version)
Will beat John in 3

At this point everyone split and went home.

That Lantern Deck is pretty awesome 🙂 I always liked trying to transfer deck ideas into older formats (doesnt really work the other way around). Lantern seems like a very unique way of control.

I know Mike had a blast all day. My favorite moment was overhearing "Jester's Cap? Is that even a card? What the hell does it do?"

Playing against the Lantern deck was definitely interesting. Game 3 I had to break my own Standstill and I wasn't sure I was going to win it. Fortunately he only got one of my Stony Silences.
