We got Middle School scheduled for Magic Fest Cleveland weekend! There will be a tournament at Mars Bar in Lakewood at 7 p.m. on Friday, February 22.

Mars Bar is a great local bar with beer and gyros, a short ride from the convention center. Even if you can't make it in time it will be a great opportunity to learn about the format and meet people.

For episode 36, Geoff Moes (@ThallidTosser on Twitter), Nat Moes (@GrandpaBelcher), and Josh Chapple (@joshchapple) are joined by Erin Campbell (@OriginalOestrus) to talk about a bunch of fun Vintage topics including the importance of the community, the Vintage Super League, Dredge, and Two-Card Monte. She also helps us depart a little from our usual “discerning” food-and-drink discussion to a more “picky” angle.

@aelien You could be like Geoff and listen to them over and over and over as you edit them. That's value!

Much different, especially since there wasn't Consecrated Sphinx in this one.

Kevin ( @taef ) has been playing variations on this list for years. It's Dredge where the backup plan is ramp mana into the ridiculous. Previous version ran Moat and Dragons to fly over it. I think he couldn't borrow (and didn't proxy) Moats for this one. Probably should have had Lotus too.

I was once playing a match next to Kevin, who was playing against Twaun P. Pwnertown. Twaun did some irrelevant Mud nonsense on his turn, and Kevin ramped into Consecrated Sphinx on turn one. Twaun just sighed and said, "Well, I guess I lose!"
