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.

We had 56 players pre-registered, but unfortunately one of the players from overseas could not attend, dropping registered players to 55, so I bowed out to even out the number of players to 54. We did not want to have any byes for any players during rounds, as people are coming to play Old School, so this seemed like the best solution. While I was sad to not being able to play, it gave me a chance to run all over the tournament site (ie. hotel lobby, conference room, and our hotel rooms) to take pictures, chat, and do many, many, many Jaegerbombs with other players during and between rounds. That being said, we had 54 players, making this the second largest Old School tournament ever run (behind this year’s NoobCon)! Not bad for the second tournament we’ve ever run.

The tournament was run out of our hotel rooms, a conference room, and the hotel lobby. Entrance fee was a 6-pack of craft beer, a bottle of liquor, a 4-pack of Red Bull, or soda + bag of chips (for the teetotalers abstaining from liquor), and we had a nice spread of goodies, as you can see in the pics below. Jaegerbombs were provided throughout the day by the tournament organizer (yours truly, with help from the indispensable Danny Friedman).

Everyone who played was pre-registered, and players showed up with drinks in hand, and grabbed name tags, and then got to signing the prize pool. Once again we gave out prizes to everyone who played, and every card was signed (or supposed to be signed) by each player. Here was the prize pool (before being signed):

Due to the number of players we ran 6 rounds of Swiss, with untimed rounds, and NO DRAWS ALLOWED (unintentional or otherwise). The point of Old School is to play Old School with all of the sweet cards you don’t normally play, and not just try to draw into Top 8, so everyone had to play and fight each round to earn a Top 8 birth. Our live coverage of the event, including Pairings and Results from each round, can be found here. The Top 8 playoff info can be found below, and the original Old School Blog has an interview with winner Randy Buehler that can be found here. There were many of the ‘standard’ Old School decks like UR Control, UWx Control variants, White Weenie, RUG, Mono Black, The Deck, and then there were a lot of other cool and more unique decks like Eureka, Merfolk, Underworld Dreams Combo, High Tide, various Atog builds, Titania’s Song, Jund Land Destruction, numerous Workshop decks, and many more. You can dig in to the technology below, where we have listed all of the decklists in full. The more you play Old School, the more you’ll realize that it’s not about playing the most tuned or optimal deck, but simply playing fun cards you don’t get to play in other formats, and having interactions you don’t see anywhere else.

A huge thanks goes to all players and friends who snapped many of the following photos during this tournament, including but not limited to Brett Attmore, Sean O’Brien, Bryan Freres, Brian Plattenburg, Mith Rao, Thomas Nilsen, Roland Chang, Jimmy Cooney, Danny Friedman, and Andrew Wright. Long live the Old School! You can click on any of the photos below to slightly enlarge/expand it in a new window.
