Ben's box had:
Animate Dead print
Foil Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver
Miscut Revised Rocket Launcher

An envelope that could be traded for 2 deck boxes.
The envelope had a Tundra in it.
The 2 deck boxes had Middle School staples.
There was also a suitcase provided as a prize. It had a bunch of random stuff in it! Nat tweeted a few of the pictures I took after I opened it:
The Junior Classics 2 Stories of Wonder and Magic book by Collier
Helm of Obedience
1000 piece puzzle
2 pieces of Mox Chocolate chocolate
a No one can beat my Dad mug
a Rick Astley Whenever You Need Somebody cassette tape
Pojo's Unofficial Total Magic the gathering Special Magic 10th anniversary book
Apparently the Tylenol and Shower Cap were already in the suitcase when it was acquired.
We had 29 people come out for the Team Serious Invitational to battle some vintage to celebrate Hazard’s birthday for the 4th year in a row!

Yeah I asked Patrick and Matt for their lists yesterday but haven't heard from them. I think Matt picked up Assassin's Trophies at the store and Patrick played U/W/R Landstill because he comfortably played U/W Landstill last time but I believe he said the deck was not where he wanted it to be.

What: Unlimited Proxy Vintage Magic
When: May 19th
Where: Kidforce Collectibles, Berea, OH
103 Front St, Berea, Ohio 44017
Entry Fee: $20.00
Registration Opens: 11 AM
Start Time: 12:00 PM
Format: Unsanctioned Vintage - Unlimited Proxy
Prizes - store credit equal 100% of entry fees.
We will play Swiss+1 rounds based on attendance so everyone gets to play plenty of Vintage. Decklists will be collected from the top 4. If you feel confident you'll make it in, write one up beforehand to save time!
Playtest cards will be permitted. There are several ways of making playtest cards:
Using Basic Land: The first and most basic is taking a basic land card and writing the details of the card on it.
Altering an existing card: PREFERRED! The second method is to use a card that shares some of the characteristics with the card that you want to make as a Playtest Card and remove any characteristics that do not match, replacing them with the correct characteristics. Methods for doing this can be found on Youtube.com.
Printed Slips: the third is to print out all 75 cards, and slip the cuts sheets of paper into each sleeve. If you do this, every card must be printed on the same type of paper and have a basic land backing.
Collector's Edition cards: CE/ICE versions of cards are allowed.
World Championship cards: blank WC cards can be used to make great proxies with your own writing or art.
See you there! BAOM!
We filled up the house again with 24 players for the 3rd annual Matt Hazard Birthday Team Serious Invitational.
