I played some of the worst magic of my life this weekend, and i am upset about that. But i had a good time even though i don't really talk to anyone and sat alone. Working on my pace. I have long played too slow and overthought decisions, took games to time for no good reason, and called out on slow play. I did very well picking up the pace this weekend and riffling through cantrips and demonic tutor and waiting patiently on removal/counters, fetching lands correct (4 colors is no walk in the park, why do i do this to myself). I did however, lose a couple handfuls of games to rushing.
@geoffc I played both the vintage 5k and the vintage challenge today (sunday). I dont remember exact numbers, but i believe there were about 75-100 on the 5k (specifically recall thinking there weren't enough $50 entries to cover $5k but i could be wrong).
Vintage challenge had 25 +/- 2.
Made the poor mistake of playing legacy champs, did not realize a couple months ago when i preregistered that i could spend all day playing vintage on saturday.
I feel you; I was so upset at how I played in Vintage champs that I dropped at 1-2; my thought going into it was to just play it out regardless of how I did but I was making horrible, novice mistakes, that I was basically embarrassed to go on. I should have stuck with White Eldrazi, which I was playing consistently up until the Thorn restriction, but made a total pivot to a new deck, worst mistake possible.
Regardless, was a great weekend, played some old school, picked up some cool cards and met some cool people, so will look forward to next year.
