Vintage League

Event Date:Saturday, February 25, 2012
End Date:Saturday, February 25, 2012
Category:Tournaments   Tournaments
Description:SANCTIONED VINTAGE

League Date: February 25th
Time: 12 PM
Entry Fee: $20 Entry (or 20 Eternal Points), $15 Entry (or 15 Eternal Points) for girls and minors

Vintage League Events will be held on Saturdays on a bi-weekly basis.

Structure for an 8 man Eternal event (3 rounds of Swiss, Standings)

1st: 80 Eternal Points, 3 Qualifier Points
2nd: 40 Eternal Points, 1 Qualifier Point
Highest Placing "Budget" Deck: 24 Eternal Points

A "Budget" Deck is a deck that does not have any of the following cards:

Black Lotus, Mox Jet, Mox Sapphire, Mox Ruby, Mox Pearl, Mox Emerald, Ancestral Recall, Time Walk, Timetwister, Mana Drain, Library of Alexandria, Mishra's Workshop, Bazaar of Baghdad, Imperial Seal, Grim Tutor, Jace The Mind Sculptor, Illusionary Mask, The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, Forcefield, Imperial Recruiter, Juzam Djinn, Loyal Retainers, Moat, Ravages of War, Rolling Earthquake, Strategic Planning, Time Vault, Xiahou Dun y Zodiac Dragon

With more than 8 players, prizes will increase accordingly. 90% of all entry fees will be returned as Eternal Points (1 Dollar = 1 EP). 10% of the entry fee goes towards the end of season invitational tournament prizes. Players with 10 or more Qualifier Points will qualify for a free invitational Vintage tournament for a large prize equal in value to the accumulated pot from the season. Each season will last 4 months, or a minimum of 8 Vintage "Tournament Days".

On Vintage "Tournament Days", there can be multiple Vintage events. For example, with 8-10 players, we would do 3 rounds of Swiss and standings. Afterwards, if we still have a minimum of 8 players, we could start another Vintage event.

Eternal Points will be redeemable for entry fee to Eternal events at Untouchables. Also, Untouchables will have an area which will be dedicated to Eternal playable cards. These cards will not be for sale; they will only be accessible in trade for your Eternal points. Some of the more noteworthy cards that will be available in the Eternal display area include:

Mox Opal
Volcanic Island
Underground Sea
Tundra
Force of Will

In addition, there will be many Vintage and Legacy staples.

We plan on having 1 large, sanctioned Vintage and Legacy event every 3 months. These events will not be replacing proxy Vintage events unless demand suggests it is a good idea.

We have a sanctioned Legacy League in the works too, which we plan on running on a bi-weekly basis as well.

If anybody has any feedback or suggestions, we are open to ideas. Hope to see everyone come out for Vintage in the new year!
