RE: How Do You Store Your Power?
I have one of the nicer Ultrapro binders with the sewn in pages, to avoid binder dings, when not using specific P9 in decks. I have my P9 on one page, and a set of CE P9 on the opposite page.
If cards are in decks, they are just in whatever random deck box, but also sturdier deck boxes, double sleeved with perfect hards. (usually a combination of one vintage deck i'm focusing on at the time, and some 93/94 decks).
I do keep my "good stuff" binder far away from any other Magic cards in the chance that someone would try to rob my house and focus on the first area of Magic that they see...
RE: Interesting Decknames and Card-nicknames
I know it's not Vintage, but I still can't figure out why they call this Legacy deck here "Nic Fit". Was the creator a chain smoker?? Can't figure it out. Even more mind boggling is "Tin Fins". Why not just call it Dark Depths Reanimator or something to that effect??
RE: Possible scam?
Have an admin or moderator from there vouch for the person. If it's "The New High End" That Dean guy should be able to help. If it's Dan Bock's group, i'm sure there is an admin that can help there also. It wouldnt surprise me, there is big money being thrown around everywhere, but be super careful.
RE: ELD Vintage Open - Vintage for a Revised Booster Pack
thanks for the info, they are really nice!! I'll talk to the group and see what our thoughts are!
RE: ELD Vintage Open - Vintage for a Revised Booster Pack
Hi there! I don't live anywhere near you but i'm hopeful for your event's success. I was curious where you had these playmats purchased from? These looked a lot nicer than inkedgaming and we're exploring playmats for our old school group. thanks for your time!!!!
RE: 5/4/18 - Pittsburgh, PA Old School Meet-up & Tourney
@cleverpseudonym we actually meet up every Friday for Old School, but we posted this as a formal event on Facebook to drum up some new players as it's the same 5 or 6 guys every Friday. We'd be happy to have you any Friday night. Please join the group if you'd like and reach out to me or Joe, the group Admin, if you have any questions!
5/4/18 - Pittsburgh, PA Old School Meet-up & Tourney
6 of the members of the Iron City Old School Magic group have confirmed to be meeting up at Legions in the North Hills of Pittsburgh on May 4th around 7PM, to Jam some old school before we get into the summer vacation season. The only entry-fee is a playable Old School card (no min or max value, just something cool!), and ending standings will then draft those cards.
Even if you aren't interested in the tournament, we have some budget decks put together that you can use. Please just message me in advance so that I can coordinate.
Also, please let me know any other questions, and please join the Iron City Old School Magic group on Facebook, if you currently use the platform.
RE: Should I get my Moxes signed?
Dan Frazier's signature is just so disappointing. Of the Power 8 that I own (missing the Twister), only the Ancestral is signed. It doesn't bother me too much because at least Poole has an interesting signature, but Frazier's is just a scribble that I hate seeing.

RE: What Keeps the Fringe at the Fringe?
@wretchedcamel I think the only place he can be played might be 93/94. I had a goofy Living Plane/Tim/Instill Energy deck put together for 93/94 that was able to squeak out a few matches but only after playing the long game as a control deck. I might try again and bring it to the Eternal Central Event this year. At least i'd score a few creativity points.

Hi Nam, this is Dan, I came in 4th after the final round, just FYI...
RE: Vintage Feelings
I'm at a point in my life where being able to play Magic is a luxury that I can't afford to do with drama involved. I deleted my Twitter account and Reddit account that I was primarily using for Magic related topics, because the Magic "culture" portrayed on those channels isn't the Magic that I encounter in real life, with this Left vs Right culture war permeating everything online. The internet of the late 90s seemed so much more exciting for us Magic players, now it's hard for me to stay interested in any social media because it so easily falls off track.
I'll stick to the Vintage Facebook group and this website, and other sites like Eternal Central for my article fix.. I mostly lurk on both of them, but at least they don't have all the drama on them (well, not as much drama, i'd say).
RE: Team Serious Open - 2/3/18 at the POP! Shop
Me and Joe (not sure he has a TMD account), will be making the drive up from Pittsburgh for this. Looking forward to some paper Vintage action!
Any ideas on when the next Berea event will be as well, so we can plan accordingly?
RE: WotC Italy threatening TOs/LGSs to pull sanctioning/WPN over the use of "playtest cards" in Eternal formats
I feel that in the future, but not sure how long, Vintage will be a player run format and none of this will matter. If Eternal Central can build a framework that puts together 120 people for what is essentially a North American championship for Old School, I see no reason why something can't be done for Vintage.
This would remove all of these concerns about "playtest cards", and an electable Board of Directors of some sort could be elected to maintain the B&R list, so we can't blame Wizards for that stuff either...
Might be 20 years from now, but I see it happening...
Weekly Proxy Vintage at Taitan Game Shop, (Near Pgh, PA)
The fine gentlemen of Taitan Game Shop in Aliquippa PA are trying to get a weekly Proxy Vintage event going. (For those in the area, this is about 30 minutes from Pgh, a few exits north of the airport).
This is being held Tuesday nights, and they have proxy decks available for those without decks. The last event had Oath take it down with a 3-0 record.
The next Event is being held Tuesday, November 21st. Entry is $10 and prizes would be store credit.
Please find them on Facebook for more details.
Unfortunately Tuesday doesn't work for me most weeks, but I'll be sure to get to any weekend events they have for Vintage.
