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?

have your pick : ) the thing with vintage is that most players can't play vintage. so I would recommend playing well, the deck you play is completely up to your play-style (fish/MuD/TPS variants/Oath/gush/...)

That sounds like a great tournament!  We should mention the idea to Jason.

Dredge is not as difficult to play as other decks, and often your opponents will be running not nearly enough GY hate.

Format looks interesting. No idea what some of these decks are doing though.

 

The tournament is not for 2 months so I will probably just print a bunch of the decks out and play them against eachother.

 

Quite like the look of a Grixis deck I found so far, looks like it has lots of answers.

nathan's right, most vintage players are bad (and when nonvintage players play vintage it is even worse) - just learn a deck and some general matchups (drain decks, shop decks, creature decks, tendrils decks, etc) and play tight!

Wow just found this article http://www.starcitygames.com/article/25260_Grixis-On-The-Draw-vs-Wo...

 

Lets hope if I play Grixis there are not a lot of Shop decks.

 

This did make me wonder somthing though. Why does the deck have 4 Wasteland and 1 Strip Mine? Wasteland only hits non basics so why is Strip Mine not better?

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?

Gary, please have a look at the restricted list before you attempt the format : D
