Are you ready for one of the best Vintage events of the year?  




What:


N.Y.S.E. Open IV

15 proxy, non-sanctioned Vintage tournament.

The top eight will be drafting power nine based on final standings in the event!  This means that you'll have a chance to draft the following cards if you make top eight:

1st-8th:

Unlimited Black Lotus
Unlimited Ancestral Recall
Unlimited Time Walk
Unlimited Mox Sapphire
Unlimited Mox Jet
Unlimited Mox Ruby
Unlimited Mox Emerald
Unlimited Mox Pearl

But the prize support doesn't end there:

9th-12th:

Mishra's Workshop

13th-16th:

English Legends Mana Drain


While the price on power has shot up again since last year's power was purchased, I was able to pick up nearly all of the prize support at a reasonable cost.  Maintaining the integrity of the prize support was important to me, as I think it makes this event special.


In addition to the main support, and in keeping with tradition, there will be a Karn, Silver Golem, altered by Poxy14 given out to the victor!  Earl Grant De Leon, aka Poxy14 is one of the best alter artists in the business!   Here are the  Karns that will be given away this year:

If you're interested in having work done by one of the masters, he can be reached here:

https://www.facebook.com/earlgrant.deleon

There will also be a sportsmanship prize of another altered Karn given to someone of my choice before the end of the last round.

The N.Y.S.E. Open wouldn't be complete without the best trophy in Magic:




When:


Saturday, June 4th 2016
9:00 am registration
10:00 am start


Where:

Brothers Grim Games and Collectibles
1244 Middle Country Rd
Selden, NY
11784
(631) 698-2805


Team Event:




Magic is a great game, but most of the time it's a solitary one.  Team events are some of the most fun events in Magic, and there will be another team event at N.Y.S.E. Open IV.

The entry is free.  There will be a trophy, engraved to note your team victory at the N.Y.S.E. Open IV.  Points will be calculated by the total number of match points that a team receives.  

For example, if a team has three players who finish with the following records:

5-2-1

4-3

4-3

That team would receive three points for each win (for a total of 39 points off the wins), with an additional point received for the draw (for a grand total of 40 points).  Losses have no point value.

Best of luck to all the teams!


Qualifiers:


If you're a T/O, and you want to run a qualifier to the N.Y.S.E Open, reach out to me via PM and we can discuss details.

There will be qualifiers throughout the Mid Atlantic, New England, and, hopefully, beyond.  I will keep this section updated as we add qualifier events to the calender.


N.Y.S.E. Open IV Qualifiers:

1.  Black Magic Invitational - 3/12:

Pre-Registration & On-Site Registration:


Entry for the event is $100 to all pre-registrants.  Pre-registration is non-refundable.  Pre-registration will open up tonight, Monday, January 4th and will close on Sunday, May 8th at 11:59.  If there are any open spots left, there will be a registration period open until the last spot has been filled.  Entry will be $125 per.  If you know you're going to make it, please pre-register and save yourself the extra $25!

As with last year, there will be a registration cap.  This year, however, our venue can handle an additional 50 players, meaning that we will max out at 200 players.

Proxies:

Most everyone on these forums knows what a proxy is.  A proxy, for the N.Y.S.E. Open, will be defined as the following:

A Magic: the Gathering card with the full name, card type (instant, sorcery, land, artifact, creature, enchantment, planeswalker), full mana cost and text clearly displayed.  This can be done in one of two ways:

1.  Using a Sharpie, not pen or pencil, to fill in the required text on a card where it can clearly be read. (Revised lands are excellent for this, new commons and uncommons aren't usually, as they're darker, and far tougher to read.)

2.  Using acetone to remove certain text from a card that's close to the intended proxy (i.e. Lotus Bloom, with certain words removed to proxy a Black Lotus, Ancestral Visions with certain words removed to proxy an Ancestral Recall).  

Take pride in your proxies!  Your opponents should know at all times what your proxies are.

Using 15 Swamps to make your proxies is a bad idea, as it's going to create confusion.  If you're proxying Moxen, please use a land from each appropriate color to make a proxy for each according Mox (i.e., your Mox Sapphire is on an Island, your Mox Jet is on a Swamp, your Mox Pearl is on a Plains, etc.).  

Please use your best judgment when creating your proxies; we know what will and what won't be easily recognizable.  

Your opponents should not ever be at a disadvantage because you don't own the cards.  There is nothing wrong with using proxies as you slowly pick up the cards that you need to play Vintage, but please consider your opponents while you're making them, as we're out to make this an enjoyable experience for everyone involved.  One of my favorite aspects of the Vintage community is that we look out for each other, whether it's constant vigilance to counter potential thievery, or the day to day stuff that mostly goes unnoticed.  Let's all do what we can to make this event as special as we can for our fellow aficionados of Magic's greatest format.

If you're worried that your proxies may not pass muster, please speak to the head judge of the event before the event starts.  Leave enough time to create new proxies, if necessary.

Using paper printouts of card faces and gluing them to cards is not acceptable!  This alters the thickness of the cards, making the cards marked for all intents and purposes.  Please don't do this, as the judges will be instructed to consider these as marked cards, and enforce punishment according to DCI Competitive REL event regulations!


Site Security:


Theft is always a concern, even if theft has never been a problem at one of my events before.  I feel that the security that we have had at the first three N.Y.S.E. Opens was exactly what was needed.  All players will be given wristbands that will be used to associate them with their corresponding bags.  You will not be able to leave with someone else's bag, and any time you leave the venue, your wristbands will be checked.  If you feel like it's a hassle, please remember that this is a measure that is meant to ensure that you, and all your friends, leave with everything that you brought.  Security is helping keep this a positive experience for everyone, so please be kind, and remember that they're just doing their job!

To any potential thieves, God help you if you're caught stealing.  There are cameras recording every corner of this venue; you will be caught, you will be arrested, charges will be pressed, it will be a horrific experience for you and it will stay with you for a while.  Let's not walk this path.


Artist Appearances:


We are lucky enough to have one of the all-time great Magic artists coming to this event!  Jeff Menges will forever be known for cards like Swords to Plowshares, Moat, Bazaar of Baghdad, Thawing Glaciers, Kjeldoran Outpost and more.  Jeff will have prints, proofs and more for sale.  For a full list of Jeff's Magic cards, check here:

Jeff Menge's Magic Cards


Custom Playmats:


Greg Fenton's playmats are stunningly beautiful, and the perfect mat for all fans of Magic's greatest format.  Greg will have copies of this year's mat available:


Here are the first two mats that Greg did for N.Y.S.E. Open II and N.Y.S.E. Open III:




N.Y.S.E. Open IV playmats are $40 per, with an exceptionally limited quantity on hand for the day of the event.    

If you can't make the event, but you'd like to purchase a playmat, you're in luck!  Greg will be pre-selling this year's N.Y.S.E. Open playmat.  

To purchase a playmat, please reach out to Greg here:

http://www.themanadrain.com/index.php?action=profile;u=20926

I highly recommend buying a mat from Greg before the event, and picking up the mat the day of the tournament.


N.Y.S.E. Open Shirts:


As with last year, I have paired with Jason Jaco, and he will be producing a limited run of N.Y.S.E. Open IV t-shirts.  Images will be up soon!


N.Y.S.E. Open Dice:


Finally, as with N.Y.S.E. Open III, there will be a limited run of dice produced commemorating the event.  This year's dice:





Dice are $1 per.  I will likely only have about 100 or so dice, so if you're interested, please purchase them early in the day.  There will be a per-person limit of 10 dice.


Friday Night Vintage:


As with last year, the N.Y.S.E. Open isn't meant to be a solitary event, but a weekend of great Magic.  

There is no better way to start off N.Y.S.E. Open weekend than to have Friday Night Vintage at The Comic Book Depot.  


What:


$10 entry, 15 proxy, non-sanctioned Vintage credit tournament.

This is a five round tournament; at the end of five rounds, the four players with the best record (using tiebreakers) will receive a 25% split of all credit.

Prize support will scale with attendance.


Where:


The Comic Book Depot
2847 Jerusalem Avenue
Wantagh, NY 11793-2016

(516) 221-9337


When:

Friday, June 3rd
6:00 pm registration
6:30 pm start

We aim to have everything wrapped up by 11:00 pm, which would guarantee everyone a full night's rest before the main event on Saturday.


Finally, to close out the weekend, we will have an Old School tournament at The Comic Book Depot!


Sunday Old School Magic:


Where:


The Comic Book Depot
2847 Jerusalem Avenue
Wantagh, NY 11793-2016

(516) 221-9337


When:


Sunday, June 5th
11:00 am registration
12:00 pm start


What:


$20, un-sanctioned Old School tournament.  

Rules:

6th Edition rules will be used.  Alpha, Beta, Unlimited, Arabian Nights, Antiquities, Revised, Legends, The Dark, and Chronicles will be legal (though non-Chronicles versions of the cards are highly encouraged).  For a complete explanation of the rules, in addition to the Armageddon Clock Overtime Rule, please follow the this link:

http://newyorkoldschool.tumblr.com/

For the time being, the prize support for the Old School tournament is listed in credit, though I am going to continue to ask for input from the Old School community as to the prize support that is most desired, and will do my best to accommodate all players.

Prize structure for twenty people:

1st: $200 credit
2nd: $100 credit
3rd/4th: $50 credit

$20 credit will be added to the prize pool for every entrant beyond the twentieth.


Miscellaneous:


Card Titan and Black Magic Gaming pay to be at the N.Y.S.E. Open, and they are integral to this event.  Please, absolutely no buying and selling at the venue.  If you have business to do with someone, please don't disrespect the dealers who paid to help make this event possible by conducting any sales/purchases on site.  Buying and selling in the venue is enough to get you a refund on your entry and an escort to the door, so please don't do it.

There is a rather considerable amount of effort that goes into a weekend like this.  We have the artist on site, custom playmats, the best Vintage dealers in the U.S. and more.  Please thank all those involved in making this event possible, let alone the rousing success it has been these last few years.  I couldn't do this event without all of their help.

Questions, comments, concerns?  Reach out to me via personal message on TMD or Facebook and I'll address all I can.

In the meantime though, I hope to see you all in June!

It'd be so cool if I could come, but it'd be a pretty big hassle to fly to the US from Europe for a weekend just to play magic.
Can you buy the playmats and get them shipped somehow? Very Happy

I'm sure that something could be arranged with Greg.  I'd recommend reaching out to him here.

A typo on my part!  I used the body of last year's announcement as a shell and I just missed that.

I'll have the pre-registration link up today.  Sorry for the delay.  Once it's up, you'll follow the link, register, and I'll update the list every few days to reflect the number of registrants that we have.

You're not blind!  We're having problems with the pre-registration site, and haven't been able to get it fixed yet.  I'm sorry for the delay.  As soon as the link is up, I'll respond here, and on Facebook.

Not that I can knock you for this, as I know venues are expensive, but given the turnout at last years event, is Brother's Grim going to be able to fit all those people?

Brothers Grim is actually a bigger venue than last year.  Last year, if I had been given a better layout, we'd have maxed out at 170.  Brothers Grim has run PPTQs with 225.  I'm actually cutting back 25 players to ensure there's more space.

Also, for those who are following Proxygate, we're still live.

For those that pre-register, if something should come down the pipe that caused either the event to be cancelled, or the location or date to otherwise be changed, would you issue a refund?

A few of us are planning on coming up for the weekend and would be interested in hotel ideas.  Any suggestions, Nick (and /or other local folks)?  Thanks!

So there are a few different ways to approach this. 

If you're looking for a hotel closest to the main event, I'd recommend something in Stony Brook:

https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=hotels+in+stony+brook+ny

The venue for the main event (Saturday) is not that close to Depot though (for the Friday and Sunday events), so if you're looking for something that's more convenient for that, you're going to want a hotel in Nassau County.  A nice middle ground is actually the Four Points Sheraton in Plainview (the site of last year's event), which is just off the Long Island Expressway (making it convenient enough to get to Brothers Grim, which is 5 minutes off Expressway exit 62).  It's 10-15 minutes away from Comic Book Depot, making the Friday and Sunday events more convenient.

If it were me, I'd probably suck it up and stay in Nassau County.  You're going to have a 30-45 minute drive on Saturday morning, but there's a lot more to do and you're closer to NYC.  If you need more information, let me know.

A couple of quick tidbits:

First off, I got this picture today:



Second up, I've updated the Old School tournament info for Sunday.  I'm still looking for feedback on it, so if there's anything pressing that you'd like to bring up, or see at the event, please let me know!

Going to try to make this. Some logistics questions:

Getting to Long Island - It appears that my options are fly into New York and take a series of trains or pay a a bit more and fly direct to ISP. How bad is that series of trains?

Getting around Long Island - The closest hotel is around 4 miles away. The airport is around 10 miles away. I assume calling $local_cab_co is the way to go. If so, what's the pricing like up there?

Doing stuff: I'm probably going to make this a vintage-only weekend. IE, I'm coming in Friday night and leaving Sunday morning. No going into the city for me. Is there anything going on Friday or Saturday night that an out-of-towner like myself might participate in?

Glad to read that you're going to try and make the event.

I'm going to assume that you're leaving from Penn Station, in Manhattan, as a starting point.  So long as that's the case, you're going to take the Long Island Railroad directly to Stony Brook (which is about five minutes away from the venue).  You are able to take a direct line to Stony Brook, so you shouldn't have to worry about switching trains.  You'd be able to cab it to the venue once you arrive at the Stony Brook station. 

If you're staying in Queens, you're going to have to get to Jamaica Station.  Once there, you'd be able to hook up with the Stony Brook line, and make your way out to the event.  This will mean either subways or public transportation.

I don't know what the pricing is like for a cab from MacArthur Airport to the hotel (I'm guessing you're staying in Stony Brook), but I'd recommend calling one of the local cab companies to get a better estimate.  Village Taxi handles MacArthur Airport, their number is 631-588-1055.

There's a Vintage FNM at The Comic Book Depot on Friday, if you're hunting for more Vintage.  If you're looking for something non-Vintage related (on Long Island), Long Beach has a great boardwalk, and bar scene, as does Rockville Centre.  Depot is about five minutes away from the Bellmore train station; if you're going, I'm sure that I can find you a ride to the venue.

Shoot me a PM if you have further questions.

Going to try to make this. Some logistics questions:

Getting to Long Island - It appears that my options are fly into New York and take a series of trains or pay a a bit more and fly direct to ISP. How bad is that series of trains?

Getting around Long Island - The closest hotel is around 4 miles away. The airport is around 10 miles away. I assume calling $local_cab_co is the way to go. If so, what's the pricing like up there?

Doing stuff: I'm probably going to make this a vintage-only weekend. IE, I'm coming in Friday night and leaving Sunday morning. No going into the city for me. Is there anything going on Friday or Saturday night that an out-of-towner like myself might participate in?

My quick and dirty search turned up that flying to Islip is probably a loss for you, I think it is actually cheaper to fly into LaGuardia and actually rent a car.  Easier too, since you can just go wherever you want then and not have to deal with a cab company or the trains or any of that.

If you want, you can message me here or at The Source if you want to see what I uncovered.
