Lone Star Lhurgoyfs Season 1 Invitational July 29th



  • I am pleased to annouced the first ever Lone Star Lhurgoyf Invitational!

    As you may know, for the past few months, the winner of our Vintage tourmanets gets to take home our prize mat. The prize mat is now quite full and we must determine its final owner.

    Eight of the most frequent attendees to our Vintage tournaments have been invited for a full round-robin tournament for final bragging rights.

    thecrav, why the fuck do I care?

    Because every round will be streamed with commentary! Tune in Saturday, July 29th at 12:30 PM Eastern to watch 8 Lhurgoyfs play vintage, bullshit, and get drunker as the tournament goes on.

  • Awesome spread of decks, including a few I wouldn't expect - Patrick without Ballistas? Ben doing "fair" things? Ashby willfully playing unpowered in a proxy event? Should be interesting; I'm bummed I can't be there (or watch it, for that matter).



  • @Stuart Yeah, I figured straight-up ravager shops was too obvious. Time to spread some null rod love myself. And also Staxxx. Yeah, disappointed you can't make it.

    Awesome spread of decks

    I'm super excited about the deck selection. It should make for some fun to watch matches. Everyone submitted blind, so there was definitely a chance of duplication. I think everyone knew that and aimed for something fun rather than their perception of the best deck.

    Ashby willfully playing unpowered in a proxy event?

    He's borrowing a handful of cards so that he will also be full no-proxied!
