IDK if I'll ever play normal vintage again.  This is vintage in it's purest form.

I've seen a LOT of interest in this, so I will guarantee a Mox Sapphire (UL, well-loved) for first and some sort of prize for second.  Come on up, it'll be fun.

Very cool idea.  My favorite thing about Vintage is deckbuilding, so I think this is great.

Recalling some discussions in the past on theory related the B&R list, I would just like to say that I've always wished Vintage worked like this.  Not the Gush era specifically, just a constantly shifting B&R list.  The massive card pool was always bound to bottleneck the format, and changing the rules at a frequency that is inverse to the pool size is the only way to keep things interesting.

This is what I love about some of the online TCGs I play currently... They have a constantly shifting banned list that changes every week based off player votes. And players gain votes based on how well they do in events.

Either way, I really like these ideas and I wish I live closer (or it was closer to me.) I currently have off that day, but I have to work Sunday morning (which would be hell on the travel.) I hope you get a great turn out though along with some amazing tournament reports ^.^

11 people.

Top 4 was:

Ben Carp [Deez Naughts]
Me [Doomsday]
Seroogy [Flash]
James King [Oath]


I swept the swiss, beating Flash, Empty Gush and Demars Style Gat, then IDing with Carp.  Seroogy beat me in 3.  Can't beat when I duress him and three turns later he has Flash + Backup.   Game 3 he had turn 1 duress, turn 2 scroll-> Flash, turn 3 flash + Fow.  Again.  Can't beat that.
