Alright,  finally got around to typing up this TO report.  As usual I would like to start off by thanking everyone who came out to the event and made it a huge success.  The vintage community in Boston is growing very well and I'm happy to see it return with some of the strength that it had in its prime.


That being said, thank you as well to Pandemonium for hosting again and helping provide outstanding prize support.  Props to Amelia our judge who did a fantastic job of managing a lot of difficult rules calls and keeping the event running smoothly and on time.


NOW!  On to the important information:

We had a grand total of 37 in attendance for this event and we ran 6 rounds of swiss with a cut to the top 8.  The field was incredibly diverse, if not slightly more blue than some previous tournaments.

Statistically speaking it was pretty likely given that out of 37 people attending only 7 were not blue based (9 if you count the two event decks that showed up)

Pandemonium has always been slanted towards the blue end of the spectrum as far as Meta games go, but this was unusual even for this area.

I was personally shocked (and pleased at the same time) at the lack of Shops in the tournament this time around.  Also, only 1 Dredge deck after its success last time.

Glad I got to use 5 or 6 of my sideboard cards that day at least!

Clearly we need to restrict Lodestone Golem, as he's oppressing the field.

 Very Happy   I almost accidentally spit out my drink at the monitor.

Grats to all of the top 8! It was a fun time like usual and good games were had. It ran smoothly and everyone was fun to play against.
