I would guess 3 mental misstep.

To me it depends on what part of the SE US you are talking about.  In NC we have a diverse and thriving Vintage community.  One of the most important things I think you can do is travel to other events and support other vintage communities and more often than not they will travel to support you as well.  We've done this exact thing with the Richmond, VA community and it's done nothing but improve both areas.  There is a lot more dedication and work involved than just posting a tournament on a few forums and hoping people show up to play.  I play at Atomic Empire in NC.  It was a slow process but I started by talking to one player at a time about vintage.  I built multiple decks and let people use them to play against me.  Over the course of a year or so we finally had enough people interested to hold a tournament.  We promoted like hell and the turnout was great for the stores first vintage event.  http://www.themanadrain.com/index.php?topic=41482.0  Attendance has been up and down since then but we try to have tournaments regularly.  We are taking our time on our next one in hopes that we can get more players than ever.  The prize support has been upgraded and the store is better than ever in the sense that the card selection, http://www.atomicempire.com/singles/listSets.aspx?nCardGameID=1 ,  if you opt for store credit is more than decent and who doesn't like having multiple craft beer on tap 10 feet away from where you are playing?  So if you are within reasonable driving distance then please come support the SE vintage scene.  I promise you will have an enjoyable time and more than likely it will benefit your area as well.  This is the link to our next Vintage event with scans of the prize support.  http://www.themanadrain.com/index.php?topic=47627.0

Did Wayne England back out?  I noticed the number of artists dropped from 8 to 7 and he's not listed anymore.

I've played ritual decks to a good amount of success for a long time.  I'm a big fan of adding 1 cabal ritual for what I believe is the best mana pile of dark ritual, cabal ritual, mana crypt/tolarian, black lotus. I like have a misdirection and a flusterstorm for the same style of counter pile.  Are you running rebuild over hurkyl's because of cycling?  In the end I think our lists would be fairly different because I would probably add necro, tinker/bot, and mind's desire.  Also if you run probe it would make running seal much better.  There are a ton of different ways to build this deck.

Since I don't have one I might as well get you to give me one.

This was hard for me. As a Tottenham Hotspur fan I hate Arsenal FC. I thought about just going with the image below, but I felt like it was a bit too on the nose.

I may be a little confused on this but is it saying that before this rule change that we could've been about to say...rack and ruin a mox and an inkwell leviathan?  Not that this situation would come up anymore.

These videos should be available for later.  There are 2 videos from the 8 man vintage side event that was held on Sunday as well.  I made top 8 on saturday playing bomberman and I won the side event playing Doomsday.  The video coverage has been excellent and I'm glad you guys were able to enjoy it.

g3: He t1 plays an uncounterable salvagers which I dismember, then I win the counter war over ancestral.  I go on with top to find tez the seeker and counter backup which wins it for me.

If you didn't have that dismember I would have won on turn 2.  I'm fine losing to a team mate in the finals though.  I'm glad you were able to win some drains that you needed.  Our games were interesting and fun and I had a blast.

So I tried to start an 8 man vintage event and the only people that signed up were the 4 people that I was with at the event.  What happened guys?

I know that I will be there with at least one other person with a sleeved vintage deck ready to go.  Possibly a 3rd or 4th with me.

I'll definitely be there.  I have to keep the tradition of making top 8 at these.
