ANNOUNCEMENT:

Back in September 1995, we hosted a tremendous Magic: The Gathering battle "Tournament of Professionals"

In an attempt to create a balanced but creative dueling field for this event, we boldly introduce The Limited List.

If Chaos Orb turns over completely at least once during the flip, and touches the chosen permanent, destroy that permanent. Then destroy Chaos Orb.

This sounds really cool.  If I didn't live ~1500 miles away, I'd definitely be there.

Per strip_miner, there were 19 competitors, and Roland Chang went undefeated with UB suicide aggro. JR Goldman and Jimmy McCarthy both played Lich.dec, with Jimmy landing in 6th place with the deck.

The event was a blast and congrats to Roland Chang on the win.

We have video coverage of 6 feature matches which we are currently editing (similar to the style of the videos on www.landlotusjuzam.net) and those will be uploaded with commentary soon.

The Lich deck was definitely the stand out and showed the true power of not only the "limited list" but our inclusion of Ice Age in the format. Hats off to JR and Jimmy for their innovation with that.

We are turning this tournament into a monthly series - stay tuned for updates on that!

I will see what we can get from Evan and whoever else was responsible for organizing it, and maybe we can do a post with decklists and videos and so forth.

I am guessing it was some combination of Lich, Fastbond and Zuran Orb?

Cool deal, thanks!

It was a combination of Lich, Fastbond, Zuran Orb, Dark Heart of the Wood, Glacial Chasm, Mirror Universe and Time Walk. There was a game where the Lich pilot was was stripped of his Mirror Universes after being Jester's Capped, but then was actually able to Braingeyser his opponent for for 40+ to win the game.

Maybe strip_miner can contribute his report as well for EC.

Does anyone have recommendations of different deck lists or archetypes I should try in Old School Magic? I'd like to play grindy control/prison style decks. I mostly play Landstill in Vintage and like to dabble with Shops. Feel free to PM me, thanks!
