Artifact - 3
Whenever one or more creature cards leave your graveyard, create a 1/1 black Bat creature token with flying.
This seems like it has Dredge or Survival potential, and can even be maindecked by either with not much retooling of the mana. It majorly protects against graveyard exile effects (too late with your Rest in Peace? death by bats.), but even proactively works with the dredge mechanic itself as cards move to hand or to play. Nice synergy with old Squee, if that's a thing. It's a new avenue of attack for grindy games.
@evouga Last week was a huge step up. Rich drew and played very well. In losing efforts, I dare say most of his opponents played even better. I second evouga on the commentary comments.
Congrats to Randy. This format, while not true Vintage, is much more fresh and enjoyable to watch, while keeping all the traditional Vintage themes.
@chronatog WotC has clarified over and over again that the ticket has no market value. I'm fairly certain you agree to such when you agree to the end-use license agreement. Just because you have the power to unload such on ebay or paypal doesn't mean you have the right. Of course, just because WotC says something is of no value, doesn't mean the IRS won't determine otherwise, but until the IRS does, WotC has no interest in stating otherwise.
Leovold brings up several good points. I wouldn't treat it as income unless it actually were income. For example, in my $7,500 above, I probably only invested close to $1,000 beforehand. The rest were prizes or card investments. Secondly, I cashed out with a check from MTGO Traders. Since that could have been reported, it's more important to self-report. Last, I don't tend to agree that "if they can't trace it, I don't have to report it" meets ethical norms. YMMV.
