This podcast by @CyrusCG and @9thonbreakers is amazing http://topdownlegacy.libsyn.com/episode-9-how-to-prepare-for-a-big-event

I worked hard last year to become a better player and I tried several things that are recommended in this podcast and there are things here that I wish I had done too.

I know some look at Vintage casually and some take it very seriously. I play this game for many reasons and being competitive is part of it. Knowing how to prepare for events was very foreign to me.

For episode 37, Geoff Moes (@ThallidTosser on Twitter), Nat Moes (@GrandpaBelcher), and Josh Chapple (@joshchapple) talk with Steve McGrew and Jake Hilty (@TuringTested, our first returning guest) about a new, fun format we’ve been enjoying. It’s not as old as Old School or as new as Modern – it’s Middle School!

http://www.eternalcentral.com/serious-vintage-episode-37-returning-to-middle-school/

Here’s the timestamped table of contents for your listening ease and enjoyment:
00:25 – Introducing Middle School
39:54 – Upcoming Middle and Old School Events

  • @fsecco i feel like you want more than 1 reservoir so you don't powder it away, but i guess that only matters if it's in the first 7 now.

    Realistically though, you wouldn't keep a 7 card hand since you don't put cards on the bottom, so if your only method of putting of putting a Sphinx on the bottom is the London mulligan you are 60% to find it? With Powders (I think)? Which is awkward since you can't powder away more than 2 Chills.

    And this equation assumes you are only mulliganing to Sphinx, not a generally acceptable Magic hand that also has lands and spells.
