Hey guys, this is my first post here, but I've been lurking for a while. I made top 4 in the 72-man Vintage side event in GP Chiba with Oath, and I posted a tourney report on my friend's blog - I thought some people here might be interested in reading it.
Good job man. I'm a little surprised nobody knew you were on Oath by the top eight, but I agree you're much better off if your opponent doesn't know you're going to slam a Griselbrand down their throat.
Your deck seems very close to the one that made top eight in the Euro Champs, save just one Show and Tell instead of two. I liked Yves build and took a lot of inspiration from it in my own decks.
@nedleeds whoa, I didn't know you were there! The whole GP was great, actually. The food carts weren't that bad too. I had more gyudon over those three days than I've had in the past two years. Prizes could have been better I guess. The GP Hong Kong Vintage side event last year had a sick prize pool. Guaranteed foil Origins PW uncut sheet for the winner, and Legends packs for top 8. And there were only 11 players!
@Islandswamp Thanks! Yeah I mentioned it in the report. I ran 74 out of his 75 cards, and I would have played 75 if I had a second Show and Tell. The Library definitely did some work, though.
I think the Delver guy might have already known I was on Oath, but I tried to bluff anyway in case he didn't. The Mentor guy (the eventual winner btw) definitely knew.
