  • MTG BARATO Vintage News and Results!

    The second day of the 1st MTG BARATO Open is officially finished.

    Despite the awesome prizes for this tournament, an incredibly low amount of players showed for the Vintage event. Only 43 players came but the organizer (Filippo Lietti, aka TroppoRicco) in the end decided to keep the prize structure so people would enjoy their time. Thank you Filippo for making such an amazing eternal weekend and despite the low turn out still keep the prizes!

    The 8 best players from the swiss were:

    1. Oscar Canedo 16 points (MUD)
    2. Subirana, Roger 14 (UW Fish
    3. Fernandez Martin, Cesar 13 (Solution)
    4. Relat Goberna, Ferran 13 (UGR Fish)
    5. Morla, Tomas 13 (MUD)
    6. Ragull, Guillem 13 (Repeal Tendrils)
    7. Rodea, Guillermo 13 (Mana Ichorid)
    8. Aldo Fernandez 13 points (Mana Ichorid)

    TOP8:

    • Oscar Canedo (MUD) VS Aldo Fernández (Mana Ichorid) 2-0
    • Ferrán Relat (UGR Fish) VS Tomás Morla (MUD) 2-0
    • Guillem Ragull (Repeal Tendrils) VS César Fernández  (Solution) 2-1
    • Guillermo Rodea (Mana Ichorid) VS Roger Subirana (UW Fish) 2-0

    TOP4:

    • Oscar Canedo (MUD) VS Ferrán Relat (UGR Fish) 0-2
    • Guillem Ragull (Repeal Tendrils) VS Guillermo Rodea (Mana Ichorid) 0-2

    FINAL:

    Ferrán Relat (UGR Fish) VS Guillermo Rodea (Mana Ichorid) 1-2

    Congratulations for Guillermo Rodea for winning the 1st Vintage MTG BARATO Open and to the rest of the top8 players. Special mention to my friend Guillem Ragull who top8ed in both Legacy and Vintage events!

    The top8 decks are VERY REPRESENTATIVE of what’s vintage now. 2 Dredge, 2 MUD, 2 FISH, 1 Storm Combo and 1 Solution deck. Guillem’s deck is viable due to the high amount of basic lands he has and the awesome game plan that Empty the Warrens provides. César’s deck has an insane amount of good cards that are focused against the current metagame and proved again to work as intended.

    There were few other representative decks types like Oath or Goblins. The big loser of this tournament is Vault/Key. 0 (zero) top8 players managed to go through this Null Rod battlefield and Ichorid fest.

    I’d like to make some pros and cons about the tournament:

    PROS:

    • To Filippo, who organized everything in such a marvelous way. The place where the tournament was held was extremely nice, clean, etc… and despite the quality downgrade on the power 9 pieces, he kept the whole prize structure.
    • To everyone that came to Valencia this weekend to play Eternal.
    • To the italian mafia! See you in Milan soon!

    CONS:

    • Where the hell was the people on Sunday?

    Tomorrow you’ll be able to find the decklists for the Legacy and, if not very tired, the Vintage tournaments. The videos will be released as soon as possible. I’ve recorded LOTS of videos, but I’m going to need a fastest way to edit them. I can’t spend 2h/video if I wanna post the 30-40 videos that I might have recorded. I don’t have that much free time right now.

    Thanks for reading!

  • 1st MTG Barato Open will be covered by EC

    Next weekend in Valencia EC will be attending to the first Spanish big eternal party of the year (not counting the GP of course): The 1st MTG Barato Open, and Eternal Central will be covering the event as its best.

    Remember the tournament structure and prizes:

    I still don’t know how much of a coverage I’ll be able to do. I believe it’s going to be hard to make a live coverage from it since my iPhone has broke down and lost, magically, his 3G connection (everything else works…). If I get my iPhone to work again you’ll be able to follow the event live from the Eternal Central’s twitter site.

    EC has the privilege of getting the best spot for video recording the Top8 games from both Legacy and Vintage tournaments. This means that you can expect the best videos from the event coming online here, only at EC.

    And it’ll be here too where you’ll read first about the top8 (maybe top16) decks from this huge eternal party.

    MTG Barato is going to be the first big tournament with the new Legacy bans and unrestrictions (Is that a word?). Will a deck featuring Grim Monolith make it all the way up to the top8? No matter what, this tournament will write the first chapter of the new Legacy history books. Everything we’ve known and played since now belongs to the past. We are about to write the new Legacy’s present!

    What are your predictions for both Legacy and Vintage events? Do you foresee a massive amount of MUD/Fish in Vintage? What about Legacy?

    We wish good luck to everyone attending to this huge event! Stay tunned!
