NYSE4 Vintage Open – ALL Decklists and Metagame Breakdown

NYSE 4 was played a little while ago, and was another example of great tournament organizing, coupled with lots of community support.

Old School 93-94 at Eternal Weekend 2015 – Decklists and Photo Report

The second annual Eternal Central Old School tournament at Eternal Weekend is over, and a huge thank you goes out to everyone who showed up to support Old School. Players traveled from all over the USA, France, Brazil, Germany, Norway, and New Zealand to battle with sweet brews, while drinking craft brews, and it seemed like everyone had a blast. Dozens of players commented things such as “this was the most fun I’ve had playing Magic in 10 years,” to “this was the most fun tournament I’ve ever played in!” This tournament was intentionally casual and old school in feeling, and that was great to hear. Next year will be even bigger and better, with some special surprises in store.

Vintage Champs 2015 Coverage – Decklists, Metagame Report, Video, and Report Roundup

Vintage Champs 2015 is in the books, and with record-breaking attendance, cannot be considered anything other than a smashing success. Huge props go out to Nick Coss, Card Titan, and all associated employess and consultants who organized and ran the largest Vintage event ever held (and who also graciously provided us access to all of the standings and decklists below). Vintage Champs attendance has been climbing steadily the past few years, with both renewed interest from older players, as well as slowly expanding the player base to newer/younger players.

483 were registered for Vintage Champs 2015, and although there were 20+ no-shows (mainly people who slept in or just registered to get the sweet Tolarian Academy playmat), that number combined with the byes from Legacy Champs Top 8 playoff the same morning, meant 10 rounds of Swiss, followed by a Top 8 playoff.

Below we have compiled the Top 128 decklists (with more appearing on this page as time allows), a full metagame report of all decks/archetypes played and in what quantities, as well as some statistics for analysis (we will add more as time permits, or as requests/suggestions roll in).
