@zias Thank you for the kind words.

So, back in the day there was a blue combo deck called Watskeburt.

It was popular with our Dutch Vintage friends. It was a deck of a million cheap artifacts, some draw spells, and Brain Freeze as a win condition.

I can't, for the life of me, find a list.

Does anyone still have a list for the deck?

Yes.

I've spoken with the Sisters of the Flame, who are currently working on a location for a Sunday Old School event. I may have that sorted out for them, but need to speak to Andrew and Paul.

Where in Queens?

From Penn, probably 50ish minutes and a 3-5 minute cab ride? It’s right off the LIE.

Prize support for the NYSE Open has been announced!

1st: Unlimited Mox Sapphire
2nd: Unlimited Mox Ruby
3rd: Unlimited Mox Emerald
4th: Unlimited Mox Pearl
5th-8th: Mishra's Workshop

For 9th-16th, based on final standing, each player will be able to choose one of the original 10 Revised dual lands. So, for example, 9th picks Underground Sea (leaving nine duals left), 8th picks Volcanic Island (leaving eight duals), until each player has one dual land, and we then stop.

And, as always, there will be giveaways galore, with playmats, altered Karns, and a slew of other cool things that I've been collecting for a while now.

If you haven't pre-registered, please pre-register soon! This event will be capped!

Hope to see you all soon!

With every NYSE Open that's run, a limited number of qualifier tournament are run. For the price of an entry fee, a T/O is able to run an event guaranteeing the winner of the qualifier free entry to that year's NYSE Open.

I currently have seven qualifier spots left open. If you'd like to run a qualifier, please reach out to me and let me know!

Hrishi's right, it does indeed stand for New York Stax Exchange.

It was, very briefly, a team name for myself and a few others, before it became the moniker for rebooted Vintage tournament series that I started running again in 2009. The N.Y.S.E. Challenge was a monthly Vintage series that I ran out at Brothers Grim. I ran 20+ of those, then abandoned the name when Nick Coss and I started running the N.E.V. (North East Vintage) series after that. I stopped running monthly Vintage events after the N.E.V. Invitational, and started running the N.Y.S.E. Open annually after that (though I did skip 2018).
