I had a great time trading and play testing on Friday, and an even better time playing in the Saturday Vintage event. I ended up 4-0. Round 1 was against a Belcher variant (Rogue Hermit?), Round 2 was against Two Card Monte, Round Three was against BUG, and Round 4 was against Gush Mentor Tendrils.

I felt the deck did well against these match-ups, with a good strategy mix of long and slow control, or lightning fast hellkite kills. One notable change I made for the event was the inclusion of Blood Moons in the board. I only needed them twice, but both times, they devastated the opponent and won me the game. I'll continue to modify the recipe to get the right mix.

Sadly, I was unable to make the Sunday event.
