https://eternalcentral.com/team-serious-middle-school-chaos-draft/

On May 25, 2019 (Memorial Day weekend), eight members of Team Serious gathered in Painesville (Ohio, USA) for a special Middle School “chaos draft,” orchestrated by Paul Blakeley. Planning for this event began in November, so there was a lot of hype built up among the selected participants.

Overview, the Draft Setup
The idea was to have one pack each of Middle School-legal sets, starting with Ice Age and going through Scourge. The draft and tournament would be as usual, playing three rounds, with standings based on record.

Packs! So many packs!

If you're interested in Middle School (or Old School) and are coming to SCG Columbus at the end of July, we're taking signups for off-site events. More details on this signup form.

I forgot you had that list! We mentioned Green Eldrazi on the show but I didn’t have time to brew a list. G/X might work too.

The Vintage some people would enjoy is not the Vintage other people enjoy. I like the current format and would oppose anything this drastic to change it, partly because it would stop feeling like Vintage.

We've got two coming from Columbus! (If anyone else wants a ride from that area, let me know.)
