Awesome! I still need to round up a couple cards to play what I want for sanctioned Vintage but I'll be playing whether I can get them or not.

Montolio takes another one down. Holy Catfish!
6/23 & 6/24 Official EW Vintage (and Legacy) Bye Trials Indianapolis, IN area Charity Event
Details at bottom of the post, but please consider reading the whole thing.
Event website: https://timmorrison5.wixsite.com/lavendermemorial
This is an event being run by Tim Morrison (who doesn't have a TMD account anymore and has asked me to post something here), it's for the Ben Lavender Memorial event. I don't know if any of you knew Ben (he was fairly well known around the Midwestern M:tG scene) but he was one of my best friends for almost 30 years until he died suddenly on April 17, leaving behind a widow and 2 young sons (4 and >18 months) and there is going to be a (hopefully fairly large) event to raise money for his family.
Ben & I used to attend Vintage events back in the late Aughts (mostly Worlds @ GenCon/Nationals '08 and the old Meandeck Open events) and so as part of the tribute to him, there are going to be sanctioned EW trials as well as proxy side events for those interested.
Vintage Trials: 3:30 pm Saturday (6/23), 10:30 am Sunday (6/24)
Legacy Trials: 10:30 am Saturday (6/23) 3:30 pm Sunday (6/24)*
Price: $20, sanctioned (no proxies)
- The website does not have the 3:30 Legacy Trial listed but Tim gave me these times himself.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask here or to message me directly.

Was there a recorded stream of the event? I'm not finding anything.
RE: 3/31/18 - Indianapolis - Monthly unlimited proxy vintage
We had either 13 or 15 people come out today (I think 13). Four rounds of Swiss, no cut. I took 1st with Paradoxical Oath. I think I'll probably write a short tournament report soon, and there should be decklists posted online soon.

Attendance was down a bit this month at 6, but that's probably not surprising given that is was the first nice weather weekend in the last couple months. I took 1st with Paradoxical Oath, finishing 2-0-1 (non-intentional draw). I went 2-0 vs. Merfolk, 1-1-1 against a U/W Mana Drain deck, and 2-1 against a Mono-U Mystic Remora deck with maindeck Back to Basics based on an old LSV brew. Surprisingly for an Outcome deck, I went 1-2 Game 1 but an undefeated 4-0-1 postboard.
Hoping for a bigger turnout in the future, I hadn't been there in about 6 months, but I should be there just about every month going forward.

Great to hear, sorry I missed it. As to the names - should 2-Card Muddy be 2 Card Monte? That's the name of the Workshop based combo deck that plays Helm of Obedience/Leyline of the Void along with Painter's Servant/Grindstone.
RE: Vintage 101: It's a Ravager eat Ravager World out there...
Great article. Having said that, at the risk of being pedantic, the name of the city is spelled Pittsburgh.
