Sharing this! Vintage in NE Ohio. Updated 5/22 with more information below.
Just added to the EW 2019 calendar, 2 Vintage Trials at Bottom Dollar Trading Cards!
Hi folks. There is a shop here in Champion, OH called Bottom Dollar Trading Cards.
They are holding Vintage EW trials on 6/14, starting at 6PM and 6/16, starting at Noon. EW Trials are open to all players. This event will be run with Competitive REL and decklists are required. Rounds will be commensurate with the number of players, with a cut to T8 if 9 or more players. We need to get 8 people per event to fire.
I am not an employee nor do I have any interest in the shop, I'm simply working with the shop to put this on. The primary thing is to get some byes for locals, since most of all the trials are on the East Coast.
With that in mind, the tentative plan is $10 entry w/ no prize payout. With the minimum 8, it basically just covers the cost the shop has to pay to Card Titan, so you are just paying for the chance at a bye. If there is an unexpectedly high turn out, there may be additional payout.
*** Update: A generous community member has donated prize support for the Trials. An additional $50 will be added to the prize pool, PER EVENT!! ***
Let me know if you have questions or need any other info, will do my best to help.

@moorebrother1 cool! That pilot is, I believe, the originator of the previous incarnation of the deck, Aperture Science.
Main deck looks pretty similar amongst the lists. I think the side board is interesting.
I can’t usually play in the challenge but I can see why this deck might do better in a bigger field than the leagues; probably less so if it is a known quantity.
