    Great looking list. Would be even greater with Paradoxical Outcome.



  • This event was the best event since the last TSI. I drank enough to kill a Two-headed Giant of Forys and still managed to finish 4th! 2 card monte is a good lifestyle.


  • TMD Supporter

    @Shaman-Ben No spire of Industry? I want to try one of those. Your deck looks sweet in those pics, I think that's my favorite part of Vintage.


  • TMD Supporter

    @techguykevin Thanks for posting this kevin! Nice run on Saturday!



  • Nice to see Bomberman again.
    Thats some Serious loot!
    Did anyone sideboard any Redbulls for the Jäger matchup?


  • TMD Supporter

    @Ten-Ten I believe that technology was utilized extensively, along with the tactic of destroying your opponents tastebuds with Malort....



  • @garbageaggro Yeah, it was a blast and my first top 8 with Dredge!



  • So many drinks on tables



  • Sure was a fun event. Red bull was in fact used extensively during the "Yangtime" Top8 announcement. Malort was also utilized to keep myself and the other Top8 competitors in a state of constant distress.

    Note on one of the pictures above: It's not actually of Kevin vs myself, but of our RD3 match. (See the light outside)



  • Any chance we can see the list for
    11: Jimmy McCarthy- Bomberman?



  • @Islandswamp I tried out spire and found that there were too many games where I wanted to be able to cast red elemental blast or ancestral or even demonic consultation and spire would not permit. Its a great card but a bad fit.
