So after going through things a few times, WhiteLotus has kicked my butt to make the streaming aspect finally get off the ground.  I have been messing with OBS for a couple days now and I think the overlay I had made should be sufficient for now and help everything look much more professional and much more watchable.  I will be streaming it off my own channel for this preliminary run but I have no problem making a one specific for this if everything runs smoothly.

It will be streamed here: www.twitch.tv/hammybone

Match will start 10est/7pst and will be WhiteLotus on Neo Academy and David Kaplan on Delver

I also don't have a second commentator since I haven't been able to get in contact with Kael Williams who showed interest but if all else fails I don't mind flying solo tonight.

I'll be in the chat 30 minutes early so if anyone wants to hang out before that I'll be there!

So, here's to the start of something big so I hope everyone who can show up does!

Will this be put on YouTube? Or actually Wappla should put links to videos on the Website!

Fantastic!

Do you know how to send Cockatrice recordings? I have all my matches so they can be put up for commentary.

Well, I checked the program and it looks like recordings are just files that I am able to open so if you just email them to me I can see what I can get to work! (PMed you my email)

they'll be alongside the match reports, which I've pulled from these threads for each week's matches. Example for week 2

Thanks to everyone who showedup! Sorry for the sound problems I managed to fix them as soon as we went off the air... stupid setting put my mic at 0% so I was screaming into it and could barely be heard.  If you want me to upload the vid to youtube I can but it was a decent dress rehearsal and I now know what i need to do to have everything be good.

Next time will be 1000x better you have my promise!

Also stream vod if you want to check out production values. Looked pretty good if you mute it...

Also is there a day were a majority of players have free? I was thinking Sunday night at 9-10 EST (6-9 PST) since a lot of people have the day off or a short day so we can have a few more matches so that if blowouts happen (Sorry WhiteLotus!) we still have a good amount of content for everyone! PM me or add to this thread so we can see what people are good for.

Hello everyone! With luck we should have another stream tomorrow of Matthew Gottshall (msg67183) versus WhiteLotus!  The timing is TBD but we should know early tomorrow so it won't be last minute. 

Also, is anyone else in the league still need to play their game? Would be good to get more people into the stream! Feel free to PM me here on TMD or email me at: samuel.alaimo AT gmail DOT com

Yay! We finally got it set up. I'd love to be a commentator for the next round of trying this! Would be nice if we could get in 2 or more matches at once so people can tune in in a wider range of time and see some Vintage!

Thank you everyone who was able to make it to the stream tonight!!!  Sorry for the delayed start but the match was extremely exciting tonight and for anyone who missed it make sure to watch it here:  http://www.twitch.tv/hammybone/v/5930558?t=54m01s  Pregame started after 10 minutes in so if you want to watch that as well, feel free to but the twitch vod is placed at exactly when the match started.

Youtube video should be posted soon and I am most likely cutting out the pregame since there was about a 20 min gap between it ending and the match starting.

Thanks everyone again!

I have taken the liberty of uploading the Twitch stream on to YouTube for everyone who has trouble with Twitch.tv vods!  I edited it to just include the match since we had some downtime between the pregame.  I am VERY new to YouTube so if it is messed up at all I apologize.  Thanks again for all the support from everyone! Stream gets better every time and it is thanks to everyone!

Was a really exciting stream! Was nice to get two matches in and hopefully we can get more in next week.  The time slot of Sundays 10est/7pst I think we are going to keep for now but it is subject to change.  Sorry for taking so long on the YouTube link but I was having trouble splitting the video from the steam and just had to settle for time stamps in the description.  So everyone please enjoy week 7 of The Mana Drain Vintage League and make sure to tune in this Sunday for more exciting matches!

Thanks for the commitment and effort put into making the viewing experience.  I listened to the commentary after the match and found it mostly on point.  I don't know if I was really lucky at all since I did have to mulligan game 1 into a hand with Grudge but no red source and Mental Misstep which, unless the random Sol Ring appears, makes it an effective mull 5.   Not exactly Turn 1 Jace/Ancestral.  Smile  In the midgame, I probably could have equipped the Golem earlier but since I didn't memorize David's decklist I wasn't sure if he had Dismember or maindeck Duplicant which would have been a total blowout.  The time I activated Dack and chose to discard Gush rather than Repeal was because 1. my mana would be tied up equipping Batterskull, 2. I didn't have any lands I needed to protect from Wasteland, 3. there was a Golem in play taxing Gush, 4. I'd be looking for a Business Spell and Repeal itself is a business spell.  The library wasn't depleted of anti-Shop cards though, as there was still Fire//Ice, Izzet Charm, Snapcaster Mage, 2 Jaces and 2 Ojutais left, plus the Digs to find them.  The hand I kept g2 was on the slow side but it had 3 lands, 2 being fetchlands, removal for Chalice 0, and a Stoneforge Mystic which is fully operational through Thorns.  It's tempting to think "I should mull this and aim for the jackpot" but in reality, on mull 6 you begin to get into ugly territory of 1 landers, no-landers, off color Moxen, hands that die miserably to Chalice 0, and hands that do absolutely nothing if you have to pitch your blue business spell to Force.  Healthy mana base, removal for Chalice, cantrip, and SfM is a safer bet.  

As for Karakas, it's not wonderful because Lord Ojutai is clever and patient and he will not attack without regard for his own safety.  In the case of Armored Dragon, if there is danger he will stand sentinel until he has his Armor on, as the Batterskull protects him from nearly everything, including Maze of Ith, Dismember, Duplicant, and Karakas.  Conveniently, the reason this ends up coming to fruition is because a 5/4 flying Hexproof blocker deters a lot of attacks and buys the time needed to assemble the kill.  

Stoneforge Mystic has always been strong against Shop (and Fish).  It does not negate their entire gameplan, but it diminishes a big chunk of it (Thorns, Chalice 0 and 1, Lodestone Golem, Tangle Wire, Manlands) very efficiently, such that you can delegate management of the threats outside her scope to Jace, Dack, removal, Chewers, and counterspells.  It's less threatening to blue decks than Mentor but for serious Vintage threats, both SfM and Monastery Mentor are outclassed by the urgency of Doomsday, Oath of Druids, Tendrils, Time Vault, and Academy based decks.  No one should have an abundant amount of SfMs or Monastery Mentors in their deck post-sideboard against such archetypes.  But for the Shops match, SfM more consistently gets there unlike Monastery Mentor, who wins more when you've already won.
