Proxies and Beer! - If you want to include a playmat it would be cool to get something that rotates with the reigning champ. Have it signed and then pass it along to whoever takes first at the next event (if it's someone from out of town just get their signature and/or doodle).

RE: 26 February 2017 Proxy Vintage at Brash Brewing Co [14 players]
Excellent time, great turnout, fantastic beer and a perfect venue! Thanks to Stu for making the trip from Austin and for the new players to giving vintage a shot.
26 February 2017 - Vintage at Brash Brewing Company, Houston TX
Date: February 26th 2017
Location: Brash Brewing Company 3302 S Shepherd, Houston TX, 77098 MAP(508 W Crosstimbers Rd, Houston, TX 77018)
Registration Time: 12:50 PM
Event Begins: 1:00 PM
Entry Fee: $10 - EXACT CHANGE ONLY
Payout: 100% - Breakdown depends on turnout
Proxy limit: Unlimited proxy
Proxy rules: Don't make us need to make a proxy rule!
Be warned - Brash exclusively makes strong beers. If you're going to have more than a couple, you should definitely have a DD or use Uber!
If anyone is planning on coming from out of town, please contact one of the Houston crew if you'd like us to arrange something post-Magic. After most big Legacy events, we generally go out as a group to avail ourselves of the city's excellent food and drink options, and we'd love to show them off to you, too!
If you or someone you know needs a deck and is too lazy to use a printer or doesn't know what they want, we have a few available to borrow. You're welcome to take them home. We only ask that you buy us a new pack of sleeves so we can replace the deck.
We now require deck lists. We do not perform deck checks but we want lists so we can post them.
RE: Vintage Leagues 'coming' to MTGO
From the mothership: "From adding new event structures...to adding League support for additional formats such as Vintage, we'll be looking to provide as many game types as the player base can support."
I for one am pretty excited about this. It's always been difficult to dedicate the time to daily's.
RE: 28 January 2017 - Fortnightly Vintage at Asgard Games (w/Beer! 🍻)
We'll also be holding a memorial service for Triskelion. (May that beautiful little trash can rest in peace).
RE: [AER] Walking Ballista
This will make it's way into the Thalia Decks. White Eldrazi loves this card and
I've been so focused on Ballista for shops I hadn't even thought about it's role in Eldrazi yet. It's going to provide excellent situational answers for White Eldrazi. Superb card.
RE: Making The Mana Drain Better!
I can say that as a new user and newer vintage player the site has had both its fair share of pluses and minuses.
It excels as a forum for current discussion and topics but it's been very difficult (outside of a few notable exceptions) to find and digest the resources a newer player (like me) would be looking for (e.g., archetype discussions and match-ups, card interactions, deck philosophy and design). I know a lot of this material is likely here somewhere but it can be very difficult to locate, especially when you don't know exactly what you should be looking for.
I'd like to mention that as a newer vintage player @Islandswamp articles on goldfish have been incredibly helpful in providing some of that missing (or hard to find) content. The Mana Drain is filled with an incredible wealth of knowledgeable individuals but the dissemination of that knowledge does feel limited by the current medium.
RE: 18 December 2016 - Fortnightly Vintage at Asgard Games (w/Beer! 🍻)
We've been having decent turnout of late as well, the last two events fired with 8+ folks.
