I’m building a paper vintage “gauntlet”, just trying to have multiple different decks on hand to test against. For dredge should I build a standard version or pitch dredge? MTGO seems pitch heavy now; what have you seen in your meta? Thanks!

None of the above John, sorry!

There were some Kaladesh cards in the Oath list, but it is being withheld until after Eternal Weekend. Ghirpeur Orrery is also in the Blue Belcher SB.

Human Stompy takes down a 65 man event! The pilot did say he saw no shops all day and got lucky vs a belcher player. Nice to see Mentor taken down!!

On an off magic player starting around Homelands, Ice Age, Alliances. I came back in around Invasion, then out again, back in with Alara Reborn. I had a roommate in college that introduced me to one of friends, the late and great level 2 judge Danny Maher - RIP - that plays magic. He built me a B/R prowl deck and brought me up to the WarZone for standard. I met some degenerate regulars up there like Nam Holofoil Tran, Randal The Red Wizard Witherall, Mark Snooptrog Trogdon and Jerry the JerrBear Yang who all happened to play vintage as well and invited me out to learn. I figured if all these fools had nicknames they cant be a terrible bunch. I played one more standard event, and have not played in anything but Legacy or Vintage since. Its crazy how small crossroads in life can change a large protion of your future. If I never met my friend in college who introduced me to his friend, who brought me to the only cardshop in the area sporting vintage players, I would probably be slinging at the kitchen table and missing out on a lot of awesome freindships over the years.
