1  Vintage Community Discussion / Community Introductions / Re: TMD on MODO on: June 20, 2011, 06:22:14 pm
I'm on as Triple_S  and I play mostly Legacy, Limited, and occasionally standard.  And the odd EDH/100 Card Singleton also.
2  Eternal Formats / Northeast U.S. / Re: Time Walk - Richmond Comix (VA) - 10/30 on: October 11, 2010, 08:51:55 pm
I'm planning on playing this time out, barring something happening (like my brother asking me to help him move that day). 
3  Vintage Community Discussion / General Community Discussion / Re: GenCon 2010 on: July 21, 2010, 07:07:46 pm
Only ~10 days or so before I drive out, should be a great time.
4  Vintage Community Discussion / General Community Discussion / Re: Support your friendly neighborhood Brass Man at Gen Con, Vintage 2010 Champs! on: July 08, 2010, 07:41:49 pm
I will be there Wed-Sunday morning..not playing in events but up for hanging out.
5  Vintage Community Discussion / General Community Discussion / Re: GenCon 2010 on: July 08, 2010, 07:39:45 pm
At this point my plan is to mostly hit the dealers tables, artists room, and maybe loiter a bit around the vintage area to catch up with folks.  I play a lot of D&D these days (and EDH) so its looking to be my first MTG-free GenCon.


Drop me a PM here or on FB if you want to try to catch up.
6  Vintage Community Discussion / General Community Discussion / GenCon 2010 on: July 05, 2010, 08:43:17 am
It is looking like this this will be my first trip back to GenCon in nearly 7 years and I just wanted to gauge how many of the 'old guard' would be going also.  It would be great to catch up with some of the old Meandeck, Short Bus, Canadian, or California guys from back in the day.  Anyone making the trip?

Thanks again for everyone making the trip down for the tournament.  I hope you guys enjoyed the Capital Ale House after the event, I'm hoping to do a mini-report on this in the next day or so.

I think this is going to be the first Vintage tournament I've played in about 5-6 years, coming out of retirement ftw.
10  Archives / Tournament Announcement Forum / Re: 03/20/2010 Type 1 Richmond Comix VA TIME WALK! on: February 27, 2010, 05:46:26 pm
This tournament should be good times, I'm definitely looking forward to it.

With any luck Saturday will be the 'rebirth' of the Richmond vintage scene.  Allowing 15 proxies definitely helps out those of us who unloaded their power several years ago.
13  Archives / Adept Chronicles / Re: On The Short Bus on: May 13, 2009, 09:52:48 pm
You beat me to it.  In one of our large bi-monthly EDH games someone eventually accumulates a fuckton of tokens (I remember someone killing almost the entire table with a swarm of HUGE saproling tokens generated with Rith).  The Leyline is a measure of control just to keep me alive long enough to start recurring Magister Sphinx or Mindslaver....or to get the Sensei/Future Sight engine going.
14  Archives / Adept Chronicles / Re: On The Short Bus on: April 09, 2009, 04:13:21 pm

chrystania/theb
holy pally/s-priest

draenor

I quit raiding since my old GM was comperable to RandomMiser in temperment...mostly farming gold waiting for wotlk to hit and getting back into MTG again (t2 and block since I sold off my juice a while ago)
16  Vintage Community Discussion / Type 4 / Re: Type 4 Stack Lists and Resources on: July 31, 2008, 06:57:58 pm
We have gone w/ a slightly powered down view for our type 4 stack, eliminating a lot of the cards which just win you the game asap or take the 'fun' factor out of the game.  Gamerobber, Mindslaver, Glarecaster, and Knollspine Invocation have all hit the bin lately.
17  Archives / Adept Chronicles / Re: On The Short Bus on: July 12, 2008, 10:33:38 pm
I ran into a couple of Old Ghastbark's, but always seemed to have to ability to conspire a burn trail to deal w/ it pretty quickly.
18  Archives / Adept Chronicles / Re: On The Short Bus on: July 12, 2008, 12:11:11 pm
Last night was some Shadowmoor drafting at FNM and I ended up with a pretty sick (but creature light) mono-r deck.  First pick pack 1 was a Firespout...the green I wanted to accelerate my deck was largely cut off (I ended up with one duo and one mauraders)...but the red kept coming.  My removal suite was....retarded:
1 Firespout
1 Jaws of Stone
3 Puncture Bolt
1 Burn Trail
2 Power of Fire
1 Furystoke Giant

Along the way I picked up a foil Painter's Servant to help fuel my Horde of Boggarts.  The downside about the deck is I had very few answers to Shield of the Oversoul, my only game losses on the evening were to a turn 3 Duo, turn 4 Shield.

Overall a pretty fun evening though picking lots of quality stuff for the new EDH deck I'm building (Sek'Kuar).
19  Archives / Adept Chronicles / Re: On The Short Bus on: June 30, 2008, 06:36:28 pm
not to interrupt the Mask discussion...but another possibly bad deck

Where is the Prohibit?!?

4 FoW
4 Mana Drain
2 Mana Leak/Miscalculation

1 Lotus
1 Academy
9 Islands
6 Fetchlands
20  Archives / Adept Chronicles / Re: On The Short Bus on: June 29, 2008, 05:18:49 pm
The combo match up for this deck is near unwinnable as its currently constructed.  Here is another more 'standard' V Masque that began the discussion initiallyl..but again I think it needs 4 x Duress/Thoughtseize.  The lack of Brainstorm means FoW isn't a really viable option IMHO

4 Mask
4 Naught
4 Survival
1 Ancestral
1 Time Walk
1 Squee
1 Genesis
1 Anger
1 Wonder
4 BoP
3 Wall of Roots
1 Q Ranger
4 Shapeshifter
1 Phage
1 Jailer
1 G Drake
1 Gigapede
2 X Swarm
1 Withered Wretch
1 Kataki
 
4 Fetchlands
4 bayou
2 Taiga
3 Tropical Island
2 Forest
1 Mountain
1 Island
1 Swamp
1 Lotus
1 Jet
1 Sapphire
1 Emerald
21  Archives / Adept Chronicles / Re: On The Short Bus on: June 29, 2008, 10:51:34 am
Let me say first that the deck is untested.

The advantage is really against the unprepared opponent that won't be expecting something along these lines...the 'coming from left field' factor.
22  Archives / Adept Chronicles / On The Short Bus on: June 28, 2008, 06:14:54 pm
Earlier this year my interest in the WoW endgame came to a grinding halt...and as luck would have it some old friends got me out to Draft one friday night.  The magic bug never really leaves us...flash forward a few months and I'm playing in the SCG $5k tournament, and catching up w/ old friends like Kowal, Klep, Smmenen, and co.  Anyways, here is a little deck that Thorme, Gammadoom, and I came up with shortly after the B/R announcement.

Not your Father's Vengeur Masque

4 Mask
4 Naught
4 Survival
1 Ancestral
1 Time Walk
1 Protean Hulk
1 Carrion Feeder
1 Mogg Fanatic
1 Anger
1 Squee
1 Reveillark
1 Body Double
4 BoP
3 Wall of Roots
4 Shapeshifter
1 Viridian Zealot
1 Jailer
1 G Drake
2 Xantid Swarm
1 Kataki
 
4 Fetchlands
4 bayou
2 Taiga

1 Mountain

23  Archives / Adept Chronicles / Re: Banned/Restricted List Discussion on: June 01, 2008, 11:09:48 pm
I got 3 of the 5 right...and that post was mostly in jest too.  Damn.
24  Archives / Adept Chronicles / Re: Banned/Restricted List Discussion on: May 30, 2008, 02:58:36 pm
I'd prefer a set of restrictions like this:

Brainstorm
Merchant Scroll
Bazaar
Flash

Unrestrict
the useless stuff

SN TheTripleS (original eh?) and my one player right now is Cub Batterson (named after my dogs).
26  Vintage Community Discussion / General Community Discussion / Re: Football Sim Game on: May 27, 2008, 06:44:19 pm
I started playing this about a week or so ago, and its a blast, and takes next to no time (and no actual money).
27  Eternal Formats / Global Vintage Tournament Reports and Results / Re: The Richmond Thread on: May 12, 2008, 06:06:48 pm
sigh, I downloaded MWS again b/c of this weekend.
28  Eternal Formats / Global Vintage Tournament Reports and Results / Re: The Richmond Thread on: May 09, 2008, 11:58:11 am
I'm heading down the site in about an hour or so....20 min drives ftw.
