I almost shit bricks thinking I had to go to a wedding that weekend.

Good news, the wedding is the week before!

Now to run it by the boss and see what I can do.

I was on the fence until I saw Menendian was coming.  Now I will try very hard to make it.

Ahhh, Dromar's Charm and Prohibit.  I actually had a signed playset of Prohibits for a while.  Pretty sweet.  Remember when Gush got restricted and it was OK to play something other than GAT?

Looks like the history I know of was mostly covered.  Beyond Dominia died, Zherbus decided to create a website that would foster intelligent discussion.  The problem with it being a website is anyone could join, so you'd have people with no grasp of grammar or Magic theory trying to be the next big thing (ARCANE DENIAL IZ GUD AMIRITE!?).  I'd also credit TMD with the revitalization of Vintage tournaments.  With the advent of proxy events, combined with Tournament Announcement forums, there were large Vintage events all over the Northeast and New England (can't speak much for the rest of the world because I had no reason to pay attention!)  Lots of decks were announced, tweaked, tuned, and made competitive through the Vintage Adept Forums/Advanced Vintage forums/whatever they were called at the time.  Naturally people got pissed, but you know what, there was a lot of good information and the forums weren't closed, so anyone could read and learn.

I used to write tournament reports once in a while before I won the 2003 Vintage Grand Prix at which point I started writing for StarCity instead.  Sometimes I have the desire to play a Vintage or Legacy event and then write a report, buuuuuuut that would involve playing Magic, which outside of Type 4 and Cube I, unfortunately, do not enjoy all that much anymore.

But yeah, lots of good times on TheManaDrain.  Late night IRC chats, making fun of various nations, and all around intelligent conversation made this a great place to foster the Type 1 community.

Hey guys, what's going on in this thread?

Srsly, I'll post some of my fonder memories of TMD tomorrow or something.  I'd go so far as to say that TMD was a big part of my formative years as a teenager, no jokes.

I'm pretty sure everyone remembers the last t1 tournament eli kassis was involved with.  Nothing like holding a p9 tournament without actually owning the power.

It only took a few months but I think everyone got their piece in the mail.

This is Eli, I want to set the record straight. I was the vendor for that event, I was asked to deal cards for Amrod at the last minute. I was given absolutely no details whatsoever. I showed up and set up cards. 5 rounds into the event he comes over and asks me to sell him a complete set of power. Keep in mind I was one of three independent vendors. He wanted to purchase the entire power 10 for $2,800. All the other vendors refused (Including me to be fair) but who would take that offer it was way less than they were worth. I had absolutely no part in the advertising, judging, or anything beyond vending for that event. Due to the large amount of complaints and people thinking I was involved, I did the whole community a favor and called up Amrod to accept his prior offer so that everyone could finally get their product (was willing to take his failure's on as my own for absolutely no reason other than to help the players because I could have sold the set for a lot more). In addition, he claimed he could only send me $2,300 first, but then the next week when a check cleared he would send me the last $500. He soon after disconnected his phone, moved, and closed down his business and refused to take a single one of my calls. I have not seen or heard from him since. Please set the record straight as this has been a popular belief up until now and this is the exact series of events that occurred. Most people think it was me because Amrod announced to his whole tournament that this was somehow "Eli's Fault". I am more than a little bitter over that day and I would probably like to do unpleasant things to that man if I ever saw him again.

-We will be very lenient with proxies so people can bring out their pimpy looking cards if they like. Artist altereds are almost always okay at these types of events since they are unsanctioned just make sure they aren't easy to cheat with. Double sleeving usually solves this problem and we carry the small sleeve's if people need them.

-I'm taking a leap here and guaranteeing this prize pool based on 1 person showing up. This hurt me good last time, but after a year I am willing to give it another shot. If this tournament is a success prizes will be upped in my usual fashion (Mox thrown in as per usual) and it will be scheduled vintage tournaments more regularly (once every 6 weeks to start).

Great job, in all seriousness, but FFS don't tell people that Lotus is not good in Stax while Lotus Petal is, thanks!

However, after the outcome of today I'm not sure if I will ever put lotus in. I know it sounds crazy and/or "awful" but think of it like this. Turn one if you are playing countrol and i play shops lotus, what happens? Lotus gets countered. If i go shops, petal what happens? They let the petal go and then it's over. I bait with welder (they counter) and I drop lock piece. From there on in I just ride the wave controlling their lands and tapping them down with tangle wire.
Black Lotus loses 50% of it's value overnight.  News at 11.

But in all seriousness, I just wanna make sure we're not dealing with a new breed of Psyduck and NaCl: LOTUS PETAL IS NOT A BETTER CARD UNDER ANY NORMAL OR SLIGHTLY ABNORMAL GAME CIRCUMSTANCES EVER, THAN BLACK LOTUS.  However, if you feel that Petal is better than Black Lotus, I'd like to trade you a 1$ bill for your 3 1$ bills.  Afterall, one is better than three, amirite?
