We had 16 show up for the Deal Me In Games April event including 2 players visiting the store for the first time - Welcome Marc Frias and Troy Sands. Hope you guys had a good time and can make it back in June.
Our top 8 played out to the the finals - no splits this time and we crowned Dan Miller as the Champion yet again.
The top 8 saw:
Zach Dobbin beat Dean Harris 2-1
Dan Miller beat Matt Buck 2-0
Joe Brennan beat Nick DiJohn 2-0
Dan Barkon beat Troy Sands 2-1
This gave us a top 4 which shook out as follows:
Dan Miller beats Zach Dobbin 2-0
Dan Barkon beats Joe Brennan 2-1
For a finals of:
Dan Miller beats Dan Barkon 2-0
I do not have full decklists or a full meta breakdown however Dan Miller was on a u/b deck that featured back to basics, Dan Barkon was on shops, Zach Dobbin was playing paradoxical oath, Matt Buck was on Oath, Troy Sands was on mono-red goblins, Nick DiJohn was was shops, Dean Harris on lands and I didn't get to see what Joe was on.
In addition we had a good mix among the remaining 8 decks of dredge, shops, bomberman, oath and pyro.
And as always, we have point totals and current store championship standings below:
This turned into a good little event and was the first vintage tournament the store has held to my knowledge. For an 11 person event we saw a really diverse room and was happy to see so much diversity with so few people.
If you are in the area I strongly suggest trying to make it out to the next one. It was my first time out to this shop and the people running the operation are all standup guys and they stated true to the prize package and gave away the time vault despite being just short of 12 players, I think that says a lot.
I’d like to thank them and encourage everyone to attend in the future if you can.
The venue would like to know how many people they can expect. So if you are planning to come to this event, please leave a message on TMD or attend the event on Facebook. Thanks!
Also, please let me know if you plan to play Dredge, because as it stands now it looks like I won’t need to bring Tormod’s Crypts. ;-)

This is normally posted under the tournament results subforum. That's why I had trouble finding it again.
Yeah, my mistake. I've tried to be accurate with the Tags though. They are what I use to track down old posts that we've made.
Looks like your connection to The Mana Drain was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
