Another great Blue Bell Game Day is in the books!

Thanks to you, the players, we had another great turnout, with 44 players traveling to Alternate Universes - Blue Bell to play Vintage for 2 Moxen and over $500 in other prizes!  Thank you to everyone who made the trip.  Between Blue Bell Game Day #11 and #12, there were 73 unique players between the two events!  I've been seeing a lot of new faces lately and it's a sign that Vintage is growing in Philadelphia.  It's really a more accesible format then most non-vintage players think.  If you read this, want to play Vintage, and live close enough where you would consider attending a Blue Bell Game Day, then PM me and I'll be happy to show you how to play Vintage and not spend Eleventy Billion Dollars.



Not to be outdone by other TOs who post more pictures then I do, here is video of me explaining to Nick Detwiler what truly disorganized money looks like.

Now moving on to the information everyone cares about, like the Blue Bell Metagame, Top 8 matches and results, and Top 8 Decklists!  Also, I offered any player who made the Top 8 at my events an incentive; write a Tournament Report about your day and how you did, and I will give you 10% off your next Blue Bell Game Day entry fee.  So far, three players have taken me up on my offer, and I have included links to their reports in the decklists section.

The Metagame Breakdown:

* added for each player that made Top 8.

MUD*   7   15.91%
Oath*   7   15.91%
Gush Tendrils**   6   13.64%

FIRST!

Seriously, I was just about to nag you wondering where the official TO report was. I needed Mastriano's list for my testing gauntlet. Good Gush/Cobra/Storm decks are severely under-represented in it!

If you'd like a 48th place report I'd be happy to provide one. That's right... I did so bad four people who didn't show up did better than me. Specifically, they were Craig Berry, Jimmy Hangley, Jake Gans, and Erich Kunz.

Must have been that bad Italian food I had on Friday night...

Awesome Report (and it's free even!) I was kinda worried you'd be charging us for reading it or for watching / including pics / vids. The look on Detwiler's face was priceless though! Also very nice to see stats but where are the graph's ?! I can't make any sense of these percentages unless you include a piechart....

Breakdown, charts, lists, links to tournament reports and a picture?  Very next level.  Coss' events are very well run and this TO report is great example of how high the bar is set.

This tournament report is insane.  Definitely worth waiting for; the links to the tournament reports are really the icing on the cake for me.  Thanks Nick, this was another great event!  Can't wait until March!

Awesome coverage. Posted the lists and reports to morphling.

Joe's list misses 2 cards in your listing above, but is complete in his report. I was too lazy to scan both lists to find out the difference. Just sayin.
