Finally, the invitational has been announced!
Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/events/1422491571329453/


Vintage at MVP sports and games
1:00pm start time. Decklist plz.

$30 entry. 5 proxies free. next 5 are $1 each. 10 prox total.
All proxies must follow these guidelines:

Please do not use the back of a magic card for a proxie!

There are two types of acceptable proxies. The first and most basic is taking a basic land card and writing the details of the card on it. The second method is to take a card that shares some of the characteristics with the card that is being proxied and erase any characteristics that do not match, replacing them with the correct characteristics.

All proxies must have the following text neatly printed, using a extra fine point sharpie. Ball point pens may not be used:
• The full name of the card (no abbreviations or nicknames)
• Correct casting cost of the card including all colored mana symbols
• All relevant/game effecting text

When choosing what card to use as the base for an erased proxy players must follow these rules:
• The mana cost of the base spell must be the same as the card being proxied.
• The type of the card being proxied must be the same as the base card.
• The P/T of a creature being proxied must be the same as the base creature P/T
• When proxying a creature it may be difficult to find a creature where all characteristics match. In this case, mana cost is the most important, followed by the P/T, followed by the subtype. Any characteristics that do not match must be erased and corrected.
• The art box, card name, and text box must be totally erased. White out may not be used for this as it affects the stiffness of the card and may mark it.
• When adding text to the card do not use a ball point pen. A extra fine point sharpie is the best thing to use. A ball point pen can cause indentations on the card marking it.
• For clarity reasons, the use of cards with the new card frame is strongly encouraged

How to tell if you have qualified for this event:
You have made top 8 of any event i have hosted;
You have top 4'd an event at either Top Deck Games(this extends to top 8), Mythic Games or The Player's Guild in 2013 or 2014(ranging from january 2013 to may 2014)
you have held the title belt from beginning to end of any event i've hosted.
You were top 16 of 2013 NYSE event;
now, if you've held the belt from beginning to end of an event or flat out won one of my events(not splitting and playing to prizing) you will be playing for free this day.

PRIZING FOR T8 IS GUARANTEED!
prizing will be done draft style for T8

1st/2nd" choice of mox jet or imperial seal
3/4: english mana drain/underground sea
5-8th: draft of dual lands

If we crack 32 players(and there are more than enough Q'd for this to do so) prizing WILL scale up(and hard).

1st/2nd/3rd/4th: mox jet, imperial seal, mishra's workshop, blue fbb dual
5-8th: foil fetchlands.

If we manage to crack 50 prizing will go to top 16 and include duals.

Title belt will also have a guaranteed prize for the swiss rounds!

This is also a qualifier event for the NYSE II in june!

Players who have Q'd and are playing free:

Justin Kohler
Bill Sees
Matt Murray
AJ Grasso
Tom Dixon
Shawn Griffiths
Paul Mastriano




This is the event you don't want to miss. If you plan to attend, please either respond to the FB event of drop me a line via PM here or there. You can pre-reg if you'd like but it's not required. Also, you can simply reply to this post and state/link to the event that qualifies you for this event. RSVP'ing on FB is probably the easiest way.

With 32+ I give random feature match prizes out during Swiss rounds.

Yes there was. Cal mentioned it on FB, but I asked him to do it here. Wish he had added a post but I'm sure he was just busy.

yea, it was the 12th and then I had the sudden realization that GP Philly was also that weekend. I know it doesn't largely effect us vintage guys but I also know a lot of us go to GP's if they're in reasonable driving range. if philly isn't reasonable nothing is! thought to move it to the 13th, but again, GP Philly. can't win em all.

cheers,
cal

Not sure if I'll be able to make it but it is a possibility. Seems like it is going to be a very nice tournament, a great experience for my first time there!

Been getting feedback about guys not being able to come because it's prerelease weekend/previous obligations. is this a genuine issue for most of you guys or is this just a vocal minority? This can be rescheduled to be my may event but i'd like to know what everyone thinks and be able to give notice in advance.
no plans to change the date exist as of now(and without major statements of the prerelease wknd being the issue it won't). again, trying to feel out what those of you that are Q'd prefer.


cheers,

I didn't realize this until this week.  I'm going to be working the pre-release at Brother's Grim, and I believe that Greg is going to be at Mark's Comics for Richard Kane Ferguson's appearance. 

If this could be rescheduled to be the May event, it would be excellent.

I'd be interested in attending if it were in May.  Do we have to do anything to preregister, or just show up if we've qualified?

I can do April. Between finals and graduation May is awful for me, but I'm in the minority there.

will be setting up a prereg option in the next day or so. it's not necessary but will give a good idea as to how many will show and how large the prize pool will be as well(whether it's the guaranteed level or if we get 32).

Suddenly realized my attendance status went from doubtful to possible.  I'm in Factoryville, PA if anyone wants to try pooling.  PM me.

Calvin, I assume this tournament will run in lieu of your regular 2nd saturday of the month Vintage tournament; ie: there is no tournament this weekend?

Looking to see if anybody from the Scranton / Wilkes-Barre area is going to this or wants to carpool.  I have contributions for gas.  I also have lots of pretty cards to lend out if people need them to finish decks!
