Old School 93/94/95/96/97: Scryings

When I started playing Magic as a kid around 1997, I eventually worked up the courage to break the threshold of Warlord Comics, my small hometown’s only comic book store. Just slightly bigger than a closet and constantly filled with cigarette smoke and the musk from the previous nights’ D&D campaign, it was where I really learned to play the game. I remember the first time I went in to try and play with someone,...

Get Maul’d: A Middle School Tournament Report

Music City’s first Middle School tourney is in the books. As expected, it was a great time. We have a small MS group and were able to pull 9 players to the event after a drop, leaving us with a bye. To follow suit with other MS tournament reports, I’ll stray away from deck pics/lists. I do enjoy seeing deck pictures, but with this being such a new format, it’s nice to keep some of...

On the Path of Return

The nuance of this game as a competitive format is beyond me. I don’t know what the best deck is, I don’t know who won what or what latest controversy has ignited the latest iteration of the same old debates from four years ago. I don’t have an opinion as to what is the preferable number of Strip Mines nor can I give you advice on how to design a sideboard for the current meta....

Live from Ditkas: Da Players Ball ’19

Brief rundown on Players Ball 19! Hell of a time. Before I get into it, I’d like to give a big shout out to elder Music City brother CayC.E. for snagging 5th place with his barn burner UGW deck and to sister Joy Gonzalez for taking 2nd place most creative with her Sorry, here’s a Sorrows Path deck. Great people with awesome decks that got credit where it was due. Players Ball is my only travel...

Hasta La Vista Barista: A Music City Scandal

Editors Note- I found these tattered blood-soaked pages under the windshield wiper of my truck. After discussion, we at the Music City Old School blog feel that it is necessary to warn the Old School Community that a band of imposters and degenerates might be posing as Music City Old School representatives. Watch out. These words from so-called “Arthur” are presented without further comment. No baristas were harmed in the following events.    Hello Old...

Get Dumb: Fun cards, OS + Ice Age block, Happenings

Well we haven’t posted shit in a solid two months. We came out swinging with something like 5 or 6 posts in two days after BLB ‘19 and have had a bangover ever since. Personally, I’ve had a lot going on and I haven’t really had anything spark my interest enough to write about. But, things are starting to level out and there are a few events on the horizon that I’m pretty pumped on....

Leave Nothing Unguarded in Scarwood: Final thoughts on Stompy

I had a hell of a run with Stompy at Bootleggers going 6-1 taking 3rd place. I don’t mean to beat a dead horse here, but I’m proud of her and wanted to send it off with some final (final) thoughts, mostly on the sideboard, and very briefly talk about a couple of my matches. It’s been about a year ago that I started working on this deck and after a fairly in depth blog...

The Devil Went Down to Tennessee: A Guest Report from Pez Unholy

I had never met Pez before the BLBBBQ. I chatted with him briefly a couple of times on Discord and seen some of his comments there as well, mostly shit talking Cam Wall and Green cards. But, as intimidating as his comments and appearances may be, Pez is an extremely nice dude. I really enjoyed getting to hang out and talk with him at the BBQ and wish we had time to do more of...

Bootleggers Ball 2019: Tournament Report

The Bootleggers Ball weekend passed by in the blink of an eye. It was a great two days full of cards and maximum friendship and I can’t thank everyone enough for coming and the local Music City guys for helping out along the way. It would not have happened otherwise. I don’t like to single anyone out, but I do have to give a shout-out to brother Alan Finney for all his hard work he...
