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...

Midsommar and Maypoles

I woke up a few mornings ago around 6 A.M. I lay in bed completely still until I hear the coffee maker kick on, which is my cue to start moving. This past year I’ve been renovating a 100 year old home and trying to play catch up on a career that I started way later in life than I should have. The grind lately has been…especially grindy. Before the sweet morning nectar even started...

Over Cokes and a Cigarette

It’s rare these days to have a moment to myself, where I can sit in quiet and sift through the endless weave of thoughts. Once I believed I knew where I stood on earthly matters. I had opinions on politics, religion, current events. When I was younger it seemed important to finalize everything, as if life was always just around the corner and I had to get there. It now seems more empowering to say...

Well What Do You Know, it’s Another Fucking Atog

If it were possible to distill happiness and capture it’s essence in a jar what price would you pay for a single drop? What value would it have if the most wonderful moments of our lives could be harnessed and relived over and over again with a simple drop on the tongue? Happiness presents itself as a paradox, one we can define yet it remains ever elusive. We strive to hold it in our hands...

Rukh Cup Tourney Report

Cayce (emphasis on the C.E.) here. Derek and the Lion were unable to attend the recent Rukh Cup in St. Louis, but I lead a quartet of my fellow Raiders to the Gateway to the West and partook in the joys of blowing up chickens. Though we were down some of our brethren, the four of us met up with some friends from Chicago and had a grand old time. The Friday night before the...
