On April 10th, 25 players convened on my local gaming store to do battle! We even had a few come down from Oklahoma with as much as a 3 hour drive.

This is the first in what we hope to be a LONG line of events. Every Release weekend we will be gathering together to battle with our latest creations fresh off WotC's changes to the B&R list.

We are also going to be setting up streaming at the next event, look for announcements closer to the release of Eldritch Moon.

UW Delver Mentor? I wrote "Eldrazi" on my decklist, though.

I just thought you couldn't spell delver correctly.

@GHitchHiker said:

Whoever copied the lists must not have read them very closely. My Oath list was designed by the illustrious Roy Spires, famous DFW area player.

Roy prefers his fame be more low-key.

I'm always up for games if you see me on during the week hit me up! I almost always play the daily on Friday and Saturday @ 8:30 central.

I think that Mana Drain would have to be in EMA2. I don't think they would want to put FOW and Mana Drain as mythics in the same set.

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.

I would absolutely play in a league, and hit even more dailies if they fired. I stream every Friday and it is frustrating to have to draft instead of play and promote Vintage.

I just hope we can see the bug fixed soon and these things can start firing again. At this point Vintage is all I play (except when streaming and the Daily doesn't fire)

I finally have a Saturday off from judging and plan on losing gloriously in the P9 Challenge. See you all there!

Hey! That's me! I stream every Friday, with the occasional P9 Challenge.

I'll be streaming these decks starting with Craig's Zacama Oath on tonight's stream. Then I'll be doing one per stream until I get to Ben's list.
Unfortunately Oath hates me so I expect no success tonight.

@fsecco and @thecravenone are both correct here.

If a player names "Academy" with a Phyrexian Revoker that player has not named a legal Magic card. They MUST clarify at any REL whether at the prompting of their opponent or by calling a judge.
If they name Tolarian Academy - that is not a legal card name for Phyrexian Revoker. If they name Tolarian Academy, they get to rename to a legal card which is any non-land card legal in VIntage.

One thing to make sure of, is to make sure to never let your opponent break a rule.

If you have any follow-up questions, I am a Level 2 judge so just ping me on this thread.
