13 January 2018 Proxy Vintage @4th Tap Brewing [24 players]
Yesterday, we hosted the inaugural Romancing The Stones tournament. All told, 24 Vintage enthusiasts came out to 4th Tap Brewing, breaking the record for largest Goyf Vintage event! Players battled it out for cash and a Mox Sapphire playmat.
After 5 rounds, I was undefeated on White Eldrazi and took home the mat. I was joined in the Top 4 by Ben (on Shops), Alex (on Dredge), and Ian (on a RUG pile). Some quick Top 4 stats:
- 3/4 are Connecticut natives
- 3/4 are non-blue, unless you cound FoW Dredge
Fun Magic and good beer were had by all, starting 2018 and the Romancing The Stones series off right.

Thanks everyone for coming out and supporting Vintage in Austin! Likewise, big thanks to Brian Tweedy and Patrick Vincent for helping organize this thing.
My friend played the 5c humans which took a lot of blue players by surprise. I played the Leovold kitchen sink with a kess thrown in for fun.
This was our first vintage tournament and chance to play the format.
The 4c deck was fun but had a very steep learning curve. Managed to get some pretty spicy board states here and there and had some fun casting multiple time walks with kess.
The 5c deck nullified a lot of mental missteps and fow. Punished players for casting non-creature spells. I lent it to my friend since he’s an aggro player at heart.
Can’t wait for the next event!
Site has the decklists because Stu is too lazy to type that shit out!
Cheers Bobby - it was awesome you guys came out! We'll hafta get some better pics of your proxies, those decks were beautiful. (And I might have to talk you into making some for me . . . )
Hope to see you guys are our next event!
