I am not attending NYSE (new job & no vacation), but I do want at least 3 of these.
I'm super sad I didn't get a chance to buy one last year (I got screwed on vacation from the old job & didn't get to go)

Same for anything I am involved with in Texas. Only eligible players will be allowed.
My reasoning is this: if you got suspended for cheating in a sanctioned then what is going to stop that same behaviour in an event that is not sanctioned.

I don't know if anyone in SA actually plays vintage except you. I know of a group from Austin, a few from Houston, some from OK and then the North Texas players.

But if you do end up making it out to any of them, let me know.

Hopefully we will see some of you there!

Makes total sense & I missed the FB update I guess.

Like I said I'm just a greedy bastard. a buddy wants one, but due to work he can't show. Sucks for him I guess. Smile

If I registered for both Legacy & Vintage, do I get 2 playmats? (I'm a greedy bastard)
22  Eternal Formats / Global Vintage Tournament Reports and Results / Re: Eudemonia July Results! Lists! Pics! on: July 30, 2013, 10:48:04 am
The sideboard rules changed with the most recent rules update.

You can have anywhere from 0 to 15. You no longer have to go 1:1 for changes, as long as your main deck is at least 60 & your sideboard is no more than 15.

Also updated: Legends rule, Planeswalkers rule, the way land drops are handled.

EDIT: I think it's a misplay to not start with 15 cards, but you are not required.

I'm glad you were able to come out. I am trying to build a good solid, friendly Vintage community and hearing a fresh voice is nice. If there is anything that you can think of to improve the experience, please let me know.

I will be playing in Vintage Champs this year, if you want to get together & do some playtesting just hit me up & let me know.

I'll make certain to post on the details of the next event. It should be Sept 28/29.

I would LOVE to do it, but could not justify the expense at all.

Plus I would get the rare island, a purelace, and demonic attorney as my rares. Sad

Can I look forward to meeting any of you at this event?

As of last week we had confirmed 10 players. Including a few guys are coming in from Corpus, some from Austin & of course as many locals as I can round up.

Hopefully I'll see you there!

DAMN IT. This is the same weekend as GP Houston and the week before Vegas. I've already volunteered to judge both of those events. If I do not get picked for them then I will be there. Hopefully there will still be some prereg slots open.

Even if I can't make it this event makes me happy.

Good luck to everyone attending. Hopefully I can make it.
29  Eternal Formats / General Strategy Discussion / Re: - I missed this, you did too - it's the Dredge of Gatecrash on: February 12, 2013, 11:32:56 pm
I thought of a circumstance where this matters!

Say I've got the following board:

Creepy Doll
Hellkite Charger
Nature's Will
7+ mana

And the opponent has

2 Wall of Denial
Bubble Matrix

So, here's my situation.  I get to attack as much as I want.  I can't kill them in a single swing, because the Walls block my Doll and my Charger.  However, each time the Doll hits, I get to flip a coin and see if the Wall dies.  I win the flip once, and from there on out I can guarantee a kill.  However, this is a loop with an identical game state, and I cannot tell you in advance exactly how many attacks it will take before the Doll kills the Wall and I get in for the kill. 

Am I allowed to shortcut this and end the game?

Am I even allowed to repeat the loop until I punch through?

Under the rule as you described it, I am not allowed to do either, it seems, which is bizarre. If I don't flip correct the first time around the loop, I have to stop or get hit with Delay of Game.

EDIT: Argh, this doesn't work because Bubble Matrix stops the Doll's ability.  Going to look for a different way to set this up...

OK, let's pretend that Bubble matrix doesn't stop this.

In this instance, I don't think I would give Slow Play. Here is why:

You could demonstrate one iteration, and if the flip does not go in your favour tell your opponent you will do it 10 more times. At this point you have shown a shortcut to an action in game.

I think that one key difference is that you can't shortcut shuffling your deck. BUT you can shortcut tapping/untapping cards.

If you find another example I'm more than happy to offer my thoughts.

30  Eternal Formats / General Strategy Discussion / Re: - I missed this, you did too - it's the Dredge of Gatecrash on: February 12, 2013, 08:40:09 pm
I get that this is a policy decision more than anything else.  What I'm trying to understand is how it works exactly.  So, anytime a loop occurs -- even a small one -- I get hit for delay of game if I execute it and indeterminate number of times?  

I mean, say there's a way to get into a loop that coin flips and then deals 1 damage to target creature.  My target game state is to kill an opposing creature with 3 toughness.  I know that it won't take me many more than 3 to 6 loops or so to finish the creature off.  Does this rule prevent me from even attempting to shortcut?  Does it stop me from just DOING the loop that many times?

Same senario as above, but now it's a coin flip to destroy the creature.  So each time I lose the flip, the board state is identical.  (This is technically true in the above example, too, I guess).  I know it will only take me 1 or 2 loops to kill the creature, but I can't be sure.  Does this rule prevent me from shortcutting or doing this?

Under the rule as you put it, aren't' cards like Firey Gambit, Game of Chaos, and Mana Clash just plain illegal?  Each of them will loop an indeterminate number of times when you cast it.  Or is the fact the outcome of any flip on these cards actually does change the game state important?

If so, what about multiple Cantors in this deck?  If I randomly put a different cantor into play from my graveyard, or send cards to the yard in different orders, am I really doing a "loop" since I'm changing the game state?


I'm going to answer with a tentative, maybe? It all depends on the exact situation. (cop out answer I know)

It's really hard to answer without specifics & being there. Plus, the chances of this kind of inf-loop happening are slim. If it happens in an event I'm judging I'll deal with it then.  Very Happy

My article will answer all...

Looking forward to it. As a Belcher player, this has me a little excited.
