7/23 - Denton, TX - Madness Comics



  • On July 23rd we had 18 people join us for an afternoon of Vintage, broken plays, and friendship!

    After 5 rounds of swiss we had our top 8.

    David Carroll - Standstill
    Justin Hrala - Oath
    Shawn Hughes - Eldrazi (playing in his first Vintage event ever & beating me in Round 1 of the Swiss)
    William Buck - Merfolk (I think this was his first Vintage as well)
    John Hessler - Hate Bears
    Tom Andrews - Oath
    Josh McCurley - 2-Card Monty (Hey, that's me!)
    Mike Ames - Lantern Control

    David wins over Mike
    Justin beat me quite handily
    Shawn beat Tom (fixed if you saw the previous version)
    Will beat John in 3

    At this point everyone split and went home.

  • That Lantern Deck is pretty awesome :) I always liked trying to transfer deck ideas into older formats (doesnt really work the other way around). Lantern seems like a very unique way of control.



  • I know Mike had a blast all day. My favorite moment was overhearing "Jester's Cap? Is that even a card? What the hell does it do?"



  • Playing against the Lantern deck was definitely interesting. Game 3 I had to break my own Standstill and I wasn't sure I was going to win it. Fortunately he only got one of my Stony Silences.
