Pimpvitational decks and profiles, part 1

A few weeks ago we held the first 93/94 invitational tournament. Our hero was there to take notes, drink beer and play magic. Today we'll look at a few decklists and player profiles from the sweet, albeit unusually sober, tournament.

Name: Kalle "egget" Nord
Previous 93/94 T8s: Won Gråberget Champs 1&2, GP Rotary, n00bcon Warmup, BSK Deep Water and WG Eternal Weekend. Top8 BSK 2011 & 2012, n00bcon 2011 & 2012.
Other accomplishments in Magic: 2nd Vintage SM 2003, won the first ever Legacy tournament at Gothcon.
Unexpected skills: Surprisingly unskilled.
Which card should be restricted: None.
Which card should be unrestricted: Black Vise, Strip Mine, Mana Drain, Mirror Universe. Probably nothing though.
Which card from later expansions would you most like in 93/94: Nothing in 93/94, but open to other nostalgic formats.
Anecdote from 12/13 season: The season was the best one this far; I don't think that as many tournaments have been held nor that as many sweet players have joined the format ever before. People throwing up in backpacks, or breaking their faces against floors doesn't make the season less amusing :)
Deck: Underworld dreams prison
Kalle's 2nd place deck


Name: Christoffer "Stalin" Andersson
Previous 93/94 T8s: None?
Previous accomplishments in Magic: Not much. Won Vintage SM 2010.
Unexpected skills: Baking bread. Also, at least one my tattoos will probably offend you if you're easily offended (Socialist Star, Thor's Hammer, Jesus, Che Guevara, etc).
Which card should be restricted: None
Which card should be unrestricted: Mana Drain
Which card from later expansions would you most like in 93/94: Necropotence. Unrestricted.
Anecdote from 12/13 season: Robert Schram cancelled pimpvitational on short notice, and I was the top rated player of the ones who could join in one hours notice. Pretty sweet.
Deck: Stasis
Stalin's 5th place deck


Name: Magnus "mg" de Laval
Previous 93/94 T8s: n00bcon 2010, n00bcon 2011, n00bcon 2013, BSK 2010, BSK 2011, BSK 2013, GP Rotary 2010, Kingvitational 0.5, Warcon 2012, WG Eternal Weekend 2012, Gothcon 93/94 2008. Haven't won a single one yet.
Other accomplishments in Magic: Uh. 3rd Leacy SM 2006 and Gothcon Vintage finalist 2007? Very much a casual player. Skilled in Reject Rare Draft and pretty decent in Mental Magic.
Unexpected skills: Written rhymes used in a Best of Gothenburg Underground hiphop album.
Which card from later expansions would you most like in 93/94: Primal Order
Anecdote from 12/13 season: The whole spectacle of BSK 2012 was pretty surreal.
Deck: Thunder Tax Edge
Mg's 4th place deck


Name: Daniel "GaJol" Nilsson
Previous 93/94 T8s: A n00bcon, a BSK, Warcon 2012, Gråberget Champs 2012.
Unexpected skills: Overhead flips with Chaos Orb.
Which card should be restricted: Mirror Universe
Which card should be unrestricted: Strip Mine
Which card from later expansions would you most like in 93/94: Bounty of the Hunt
Anecdote from 12/13 season: Couldn't find the last basic Swamps for the WG Eternal Weekend tournament, ended up playing my deck with 6 lands too few. Still amusing.
Deck: GB All Hallow's Eve
GaJol's 7th place deck
