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. A (NYSE) record 157 players attended, with entrance fees of $100 pre-reg or $125 same day, and players traveled from all over the country. Nick Detwiler (aka Prospero) continues to do yeoman’s work promoting and supporting Vintage, even as the format’s recent changes have made him and others wary.

You can find our live coverage from the event here live coverage, including round by round pairings, standings, and the live streaming video embed

We’ve posted the Top 16 decklists in the first section below, then broken down all decks for a metagame breakdown in the next section, and then posted the full decklists from ALL other competitors in the final section (alphabetically, by last name, first name). It is now in table form, so you can sort by last name, or by deck type. To find a specific deck by player name or deck type, press CRTL+F to bring up the Find function in your browser, and then type in your search string. Rather than including a massive wall of text on this page, each decklist/name is a URL/link to an individual Google document containing the decklist, for further manipulation.

A special mention and huge thank you must be given to Matt Murray (aka chubbyrain), who put in extremely long hours typing up and organizing all of these decklists after the event. When you see him in person next time please thank him for performing this Herculean task, buy him a beverage, and maybe even serenade him by singing “chubby rain” to the tune of the classic Prince hit “Purple Rain.”
