A vintage excursion


A few weeks ago, I played in a 10 proxy proxy vintage tournament at Manaleak. It was my first vintage event, and I had a fantastic time! Here’s the list I copied from morphing.de (Luca Lovino), except I dropped a mana drain for a minds desire.

1 Black Lotus
1 Mana Crypt
1 Mox Emerald
1 Mox Jet
1 Mox Ruby
1 Mox Sapphire
1 Sol Ring
1 Demonic Tutor
1 Tendrils of Agony
1 Vampiric Tutor
1 Yawgmoth’s Will
1 Ancestral Recall
1 Brainstorm
2 Flusterstorm
4 Force of Will
1 Gifts Ungiven
4 Gush
2 Hurkyl’s Recall
1 Jace, the Mind Sculptor
1 Mana Drain
3 Mental Misstep
1 Merchant Scroll
1 Ponder
1 Preordain
3 Repeal
2 Snapcaster Mage
2 Talrand, Sky Summoner
1 Mind’s Desire
1 Time Walk
1 Timetwister
1 Fastbond
3 Island
1 Library of Alexandria
3 Misty Rainforest
3 Polluted Delta
3 Tropical Island
3 Underground Sea

3 Yixlid Jailer
3 Nature’s Claim
2 Dismember
2 Trygon Predator
2 Nihil Spellbomb
1 Hurkyl’s Recall
1 Forest
1 Surgical Extraction

It was five rounds and a cut to top 8 with top 4 cashing. We had about 20 players, from all over the place which made first prize about £80.

Here’s a brief recap of my tournament:
Round 1 vs Jim (workshops) w2-1
Round 2 vs Brian (URg Land still) w2-0
Round 3 vs Chris (Workshops) w2-1
Round 4 vs Toby (Hatebears) ID
Round 5 vs Gaz (Workshops) ID
Top 8 vs Jim l0-2

So I finished outside the cash 😦 never mind, it was great fun!

For changes, I’d probably cut a Talrand for a regrowth, just to make gifts piles extra-savage.
