@msg67183 said in Powerless Vintage Painter?:

My favorite unpowered deck is Elves. It feels like a broken combo deck, without the giant price tag. It is still to this day the best performing deck at Eternal Weekend for me, and I played it back in 2013.

If you can't afford power, I'd guess you also can't afford Workshops and if you don't have either of those, Painter is going to be basically a slightly better Legacy deck.

@blindtherapy said in (C19) Wildfire Devils:

they choose the card, so the first triggers are all just going to hit counterspells, removal with no target, etc until those cards are gone.

To clarify, the player that is randomly chosen is the one that chooses the card. 50% of the time, that's going to be you choosing good cards from your graveyard. The other 50% of the time, it's going to be your opponent choosing bad cards.

I can't find the previous thread to check but hasn't this been a problem in the past? As I recall last year, they said they'd get the info out something like 30 days in advance and it was like 11:30 ET on the last possible day when it was published.

@jclnc007 said in 7/10 split:

So that’s my take on 7/10 split. I made it for fun. So what does everyone think?

I think that is a list of Vintage legal cards.

What do you think?

Is there a reason you chose those cards over the standard build?

How has your testing gone?

Another point toward affordable old school is the cards you already have for other formats. After accounting for things I already owned, I just bought all the things I need for my new OS deck for $110 - and that's including upgrading some things to more aesthetically pleasing versions. And of that $110, $40 was cards I was already planning on buying for non-OS reasons.

FWIW, this is a thing I really like about Middle School. If you play Legacy (and to a lesser extent, Vintage), you have the majority, by cost, of at least one and probably several decks.

Despite the energy and organization that have defined the format in the past few years, Austin does not have a centralized Old School scene. With that, I’ve found that local players have many misconceptions about Old School. The biggest one, invariably, is the cost of building a deck. As we’ve just announced our second non-proxy event of the year – the Summer of 94 – we wanted to help prospective and skeptical players come and join us for a day of fun and old cardboard. To do that, I’m writing this article to help new players put a deck together without buying Power, Duals, etc.
