@wfain How do you like Anger in the deck? I was thinking about cutting Hooting mandrills for one (currently running two Mandrills).

I've been playing that Bant version on MTGO a little bit, and it's a blast. I'm going to tinker with the list some this week. The only matchup I really hate with it is Oath, as it seems to have big game vs everything else I've faced. Wonder has won me multiple games where a mentor or robots are clogging up the ground.

@stuart Looks like there will be at least 4-5 of us coming from San Antonio.

I'll be there. Both of my sons would play too, depending on entry fee.

Got you all. I'm @Feldon808 on Twitter if you want to return the follow. I only post about Magic (mostly Vintage and Old School).

@yayjinaz That looks like fun! Do you have it built on mtgo by chance?

Good afternoon! What is your Twitter handle? Just in case I don't follow you yet. I made a new account just so I can follow all the Vintage and Old School happenings.

Wow, @hierarchnoble thanks for that very detailed reply. That's a lot of information to chew on there. After considering what you've said about the ease of switching between decks without holding onto extra cards, it seems rather unimportant to keep anything you aren't using in a current deck. Very interesting! I like the approach of just holding tickets rather than cards. I don't switch decks all that often anyway, so that seems ideal for me. Thank you for sharing your thoughts! That was very valuable and should save me a lot of time and effort.

@stuart If you guys decide to run one of these in San Antonio, that would be pretty great too. I followed you guys on Twitter, and will keep track of your events from now on. Thanks!

Ok, thanks for the reply @wfain. Sounds like you have opened some good staples in your prize chests.

Maybe I'll hop in the league this weekend and give it a shot.

Ok, I sort of got the bug to play more vintage again and decided to build a deck on MTGO last weekend. I've noticed that there aren't any scheduled tournaments, but have had no issues getting practice games in over the last few days. I see the Vintage league, and will probably join that once I'm a little more comfortable with the (horrible) software. I have a couple questions about how the economy works, and prizes. I assume it's possible to accumulate prizes and trade for more tickets or other staples to build more decks. How difficult is it to do such a thing if you only play Vintage? I've also noticed that the prizes are some sort of treasure chest thing full of cards. When you win these, can you trade the treasure chest, or do you open it and trade the cards inside? What kinds of cards can you expect to find in one of these treasure chests? Sorry if these are elementary questions, and I thank you for your help ahead of time.

@garbageaggro Enchantress was my pet deck in Legacy for a number of years, but I had never considered playing it in Vintage. Sweet list, and props for running it! Nice job on the 3-2 finish as well.

I've been using By Force in the sideboard of my Jeskai deck on modo, and it's a real beating for them.

Vintage FNM?? So cool.

This was a really fun event, and the staff at 4th Tap treated us very well. I would make the drive from San Antonio for this again.

Good report, thanks for sharing! The deck looks sweet. I like the inclusion of ETW. Well done!

@Islandswamp Great article! I agree, I don't want more restrictions. I think the format is great right now as it is.

Granted, I only play paper magic. One of the (many) reasons I don't play on MODO is because people tend to gravitate towards the same 1-2 decks. I don't feel like this happens as much in paper magic. Anyone have any input on this?
