  • Revenge of the Living Dead

    I placed second in the August 2016 Power 9 Challenge with a Vengeful Pharaoh variant of my Pitch Dredge deck. I was streaming the event live, and the video archive can be found in the embedded YouTube playlist at the bottom. But first, a few points of analysis.

  • 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.

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.

  • NYSE Vintage Open 3 – ALL Decklists, Video, and Metagame Report

    NYSE 3 is safely in the rear view mirror, and was another great showing of Vintage love and dynamism, with the event selling out all available 150 seats. With an entrance fee of $100 limiting the field to players serious about their Vintage craft, the field was turbo-charged with many of America’s most dedicated players, voyaging from far and wide across the country to Long Island, New York (USA). Community stalwart Nick Detwiler (aka Prospero) continues to do a masterful job promoting and supporting Vintage, and it should come as no surprise that this tournament showcased the continued resurgence of interest in Vintage in North America.

  • TheMisprintGuy Magic Oddica – Chapter II: Crimps

    Editor’s introduction: Chapter II of our very special Magic Oddica by Keith Adams, aka TheMisprintGuy. This time Keith is covering another common type of rarity: Crimped cards. After Chapter II, Keith will start covering some of the most amazing rarities ever seen, but in order to understand some of this type of misprints, we need to start from the basics.

    TheMisprintGuy Magic Oddica – Chapter II: Crimps.

    One of Magic: the Gathering‘s most likely errors is that of crimped cards. “Crimps” refers to a mistake that happens during the packaging process. Sometimes one or more cards will not be placed into a pack properly, and when a pack is sealed a misplaced card will be crimped along the top or bottom of the card.

  • TheMisprintGuy Magic Oddica – Chapter I: Miscuts

    Editor’s introduction: We are proud to introduce you to our new Eternal Central Contributor, Keith Adams, aka TheMisprintGuy. Keith will be publishing a weekly video-column named TheMisprintGuy Magic Oddica where he’ll cover the huge specter of the most amazing Magic rarities.

    Before we move on to his very first article we would like to introduce you to Keith Adams with a little bio about him:

    Keith Adams has been collecting & playing Magic: the Gathering since 1995. In 2001, Keith purchased a few misprinted cards, and never looked back. Today, he has one of the world’s largest collections specializing in misprints, test prints, & other hard to find rarities that are almost unheard of in the Magic: the Gathering community. Keith has now joined our team of writers to expand your knowledge of the world of oddities!

    Keith’s collection ranges from cards that pre-date Alpha to the downright strange items that never should have left the factory. A Black Lotus that has a casting cost of 3 mana? A Time Walk that is red? Cards that have more than one set printed on them? They really do exist, and Keith will turn these imperfections into a virtual gallery to share with us, so stay tuned!
