    A pic from round 1

    Big thanks to everyone who came out. Also, in speaking with Alan, The Comic Book Depot will be hosting its monthly Friday Night Vintage as an E.E. satellite, to earn perks towards upcoming E.E. events.



  • Exceptionally great turnout and a ton of Fun as always! Love that I got paired against the only two outcome decks in the room, Go Null Rod!



  • I've never really understood the idea of splitting. What's the reasoning behind a top 8 split here? Looks like a great event nonetheless.



  • @Griselbrother People want to go home



  • It was about 5:30pm by the time round 5 ended. Some of the attendees still had a 1hr+ drive home on a Sunday evening with work the next day. I think it was understandable.



  • Would the Doomsday list be available, by any chance? Thank you, in advanced :)



  • @Ten-Ten I'll post the list when I get a chance, but it was not updated much from what Smennen played a while back in the last season of VSL. My wife agreed to watch the baby this weekend and let me run and sling cards for a little while, so I grabbed this deck out of my pile of vintage decks and ran over. I chose it because I didn't have to know quite as much about the meta as I did about how to play this deck. I dropped after 3 rounds and came in 27 out of 28 :) so the list is not optimal (nor the pilot).



  • @Ten-Ten Sorry for the later reply... its been busy at work. I no longer have the decklists. I only used them to get the top 8 info and generate an archetype / sub archetype breakdown, as a means of providing additional insights to the results to everyone. At the tournament, they only stated that top 8s decklists would be posted (given enough players ) so that's come through to play) so that's what I put up.



  • @abenayo
    Thank you, greatly appreciated.

    @Jostin123
    No problem. Thank you for posting the results.
