North America Vintage Champs 2018 Coverage, Decklists, and Results

Returning to Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania, USA) for another bite at the apple, 381 players were signed up for the North American Vintage Champs 2018, hosted by the awesome staff of Card Titan, and after accounting for 5 no-show player registrations in Round 1, it appears there were 376 players for the day.

Once again, the vast number of players called for 10 rounds of Swiss on Friday, followed by a Top 8 playoff on Sunday. The Top 8 saw some familiar faces return to its ranks, including Nam Tran (second Vintage Champs T8, previously in 2014), and Rich Shay (fifth Vintage Champs T8, previously in 2007, 2011, 2015, 2017).

The two following metagame matchup tables below represent information pulled from the full NA Vintage Champs 2018 Metagame Breakdown, by Ryan Eberhardt and Matt Murray on TMD. I would once again encourage you to support and recognize both Ryan and Matt for their continued contributions to the Vintage community. Classification of these decks, especially as many are hybrid strategies, can always be tricky, but they have detailed their process and explanation in the linked thread. Here is their publicly transparent full spreadsheet, including Archetype/Subarchetypes, Rounds, Wins, etc. (Google Sheets), so you can drill down and further manipulate the information as you see fit.

ALL Decklists, Alphabetically by Last Name

Like last year, thanks to the graciousness of Card Titan, we are publishing ALL available decklists (some may have been lost in transit, but this is everything we were given). Rather than including a massive wall of text on this page, we’ve created a downloadable PDF file containing ALL of the scanned decklists from the event that we have, in alphabetical order (by last name). The PDF file also contains clickable bookmarks (using Acrobat reader, click on the ribbon icon), which you can use to go directly to decks from player last names starting with A, B, C, and so forth. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE FILE IN FULL (64 MB). Use the embed below to view directly without downloading. Note that if a player’s decklist is not in the file, it is because it was not given to us (there are a few budget decklists missing, for example, that were likely pulled for prizing and not returned).

Video Roundup

Until these hit YouTube in the near future, please see Card Titan’s Twitch archive here: https://go.twitch.tv/cardtitan/videos/all. We’ll update this section with a YouTube embed of the Vintage Champs playlist once Card Titan has edited/archived it, and it’s ready to go.
