ELD Vintage Open – A New Beginning

ELD Vintage Open June 16th | TO Report & Results

Fourteen players arrived to battle for incredible prizes, and perhaps more important, the right to call themselves the inaugural ELD Vintage Open Champion. First place was guaranteed to be a Revised Booster pack and a custom Leather Playmat from Old Gods, to commemorate their victory.

Top 8 had a slew of options for their winnings, including taking credit for future cards. At all of my events, players have the choice of the cards on display, or an equivalent in credit.

Of course, I want everyone who helps make these events great to have something to remember the event by. For those who had childhoods before the dawn of the internet, you may remember my dozens of ELD’s Mox events in 2000’s. For those events, I created proxy cards for each player. Since WotC stopped that route, I’ve started a new prize for every player – commemorative leather deck dividers.
