TCM Event #1 Vintage Deck lists & Stuff

A great day was had by all. Organizing this event was a hell of a lot of fun and we are going to do it again! It was great practice leading up to Vintage Masters and we will hold another event close to masters next year too. I think it’s safe to say that Vintage is a healthy format in Melbourne. Massive thank you to NLG Ringwood for letting us jam Vintage in the store. Also a big thanks to the guys that were playing Vintage for the first time, I know there were at least 3 of you there.
