Magic: the Gathering in the UK

One of my local stores is running a tournament for vintage with unlimited proxies. Cost is $25 to enter and first place gets a mox pearl.

 

I am thinking of entering but know nothing about the format, can anyone help?

 

What deck would you recomend as there are no budget restraints?

Play Burning Oath, deck looks fucking SICK:

http://www.eternalcentral.com/?p=3265

Apparently UR landstill isn't a bad deck either.

Also people will play Shops as it is a lot easier to pilot (IMO) than a deck with actual spells.  Here's a newer, more sphere-heavy shops list called Terra Nova if you want to try it:

4 Lodestone Golem
4 Phyrexian Metamorph
4 Phyrexian Revoker

4 Chalice of the Void
4 Dismember
4 Sphere of Resistance
4 Thorn of Amethyst
2 Sculpting Steel
1 Trinisphere

1 Mana Crypt
1 Mox Emerald
1 Mox Jet
1 Mox Pearl
1 Mox Ruby
1 Mox Sapphire
1 Sol Ring

4 Ancient Tomb
4 Mishra's Factory
4 Mishra's Workshop
4 Mutavault
4 Wasteland
1 Strip Mine
1 Tolarian Academy

SB:

4 Grafdigger's Cage
3 Null Rod
3 The Tabernacle of Pendrell Vale
3 Tormod's Crypt
2 Ghost Quarter

I highly recommend printing off a bunch of proxies and jamming some games with whoever you play with down there - you'll have the occasional "whoops I win on t2" hand, but most of the time you actually need to do stuff and interact with your opponent, so just goldfishing may not be that helpful.

haha thanks Gary, that was a fun round as game 3 was actually really close with me just not being able to kill him! too bad on missing out on top 8 though..

I personally hated playing Burning Oath, I felt the deck did nothing... might as well play standard Oath lists is what I felt like : ) 

tl;dr

Ok from having a look at some decklists this is what I have been able to find. Its quite hard as most of the decks have about 20 of the same cards in.

Do these all look like actual decks? Only saw the one Goblins and one Charbelcher, I assume that means they are not very good and maybe not worth testing.

 

Does it look like I have missed any decks out?

Thanks for the tips guys.

So many decks to try, its actually very exciting as I have been getting quite bored of magic recently.

Really want to read some of those Stephen Menendian articles but fuck paying that price just to read an article.
