Another Event for your Vintage Pleasure

Sorry for the late update, but here are the event details.


WHERE:
Pandemonium Books and Games
4 Pleasant Street
Cambridge, MA 02139
(617) 547-3721


WHEN:
Saturday November 14th

Registration starts at 11:00.  The event begins at 12pm.

WHAT:Main Vintage Event!
$30 entry fee
10 Proxy free with Entry fee with the option to buy 5 additional proxies for $1 each
Decklists required.



PRIZES!

Prize distributions based on attendance.

Change of plans...40 is the new magic number.

If we hit 40 entries, I will be putting a Mox Pearl up for 1st place.  The rest of the prizes will be credit based on attendance.

Anything shy of 40 is just credit based on attendance.

You will also have the option of taking credit over the Mox if you are so inclined.


Estimated prize payout at 40 players

1st   : Mox Pearl (Or some amount of credit)
2nd  : 200 in Credit
3-4  : 100 in Credit
5-8  : 50 in Credit





PROXY RULES:

Acceptable Proxy Methods:
    1. Full Card Printed on Card Stock.  (ie: you blanked a normal magic card and then ran it through a printer.)
    2. Clearly Hand written fully blank card.     (ie: You blanked a normal magic card and then neatly hand wrote all relevant information on it.)
    3. Relevant Information neatly written on a basic land with Sharpie

**Note: Relevant Information is defined as follows:
    1. Card Name
    2. Mana Cost
    3. Card type
    4. Full card text or a reasonable abbreviation
    5. Power/Toughness/Loyalty where applicable

Failure to provide adequate proxies will result in a warning or game loss should a judge need to be called.  I hate to be so harsh on this, but a lot of players put a lot of time and effort into making their decks and expect some effort from their opponents.
If you have any questions regarding your proxies please approach myself or one of the other organizers or judges and have us check them before the tournament starts.

Update original post as it turns out that the original date had a conflict.

You must be talking about a different Mox. Me and Bill Copes have already agreed to a prize split on this one. Also the second place prize. And somehow also 3rd-8th prizes also. And Craig's dignity.

A Mox tournament in New England? That's great news! I'll do my best to go.

Now, I'll let you kids get back to your trash-talking.

That will be a measly split considering I have very little dignity to begin with.

If the attendees of this event play Magic as well as they trash talk you might as well just give me that mox right now Craig. Saves everybody the time and cuts out the middle man.

While I don't agree about giving you the prize, the trash talking has been rather lack luster......gotta get some oscar the grouch up in here.

So as far as proxies go, I don't have the materials to blank a card, and I obviously can't do my usual slips of paper, so is it preferable to:

use sharpie on a basic land for everything

or

to find a card with as much relevant information matching, and strikethrough/replace everything else with relevant text
      For example, take a random 1U sorcery, strikethrough the name and card text, and fill in everything for time walk

We talked about the proxy stuff at the shop last night but for everyone else's benefit, I would say that Basic lands are the optimal choice.  And if possible use basics that would not normally be in your deck.  (ie: don't use islands in a blue deck).

I'll be there with the Myriad crew. Looking forward to this.

Just a comment on proxies, more of a request.  If you are using proxies, please don't use the same land/card to represent more than 1 specific card.  Example, don't use forests for 5 different proxies.

I will only use basic lands that are the same basic lands I'm running in my deck.

I'm not sure how feasible that is for a ten to fifteen proxy allowed event. What I ended up settling on was using the appropriate basic land for each of the moxen I'm proxying, and then I used plains for the rest, since the white text box and often less-cluttered art made it a little easier to see what card it was proxying. I did do my best to make a reasonable sharpie facsimile of the art on my proxies though. Granted, I'm a terrible artist, but I think I did a reasonable job, and I'm at least not showing up with ten identical basic lands with nothing to distinguish them but scribbled text Razz
