Exclusive? Hm. Anyone who wants gets to play. We don't event promote winning with valuable prices for the higher finishers. The tournament fee is never more than to cover the expenses for the organizer. The cards you have in your deck will never rotate nor become obsolete here. You can build a deck for peanuts and come to play and have a beer in our tournaments. If you want to build the first deck I played in the format, and use Unlimited cards, you can buy the whole 60-card pile from CardKingdom right now for $48.68. People who rather spend $80 on a set of Deathmist Raptors for Standard and still feel they should get to play an optimized deck with Power and duals without commitment and time, this is simply not their format. People who enjoy the game for the game and the beauty of old cards are always welcome.
That is mostly the truth. But among all the public roads, there is a private one. The tournament where only a handful people are invited, where the top old school players battle for glory and bragging rights. Eight players, all of whom with the skills to spike a tournament. Eight decks, each with a simply ridiculous price tag. This is the tournament for haters to hate, where elitism meets exclusivity, and where all the complaints are justifed. This is Pimpvitational.
|Got nine problems but Power ain't one.|
|No surprise that Robin would go for Shivan rather than Serra.|
|Just add three Mahamothi Djinn and you can build a rad 75-card casual deck. Unless you'd rather build a house.|
This was my list:
|Turn 3 Phantom Monster of a mox is crazy sweet. Also, Moat!|
|Stalin vs Elof. Stalin managed to kill Elof's Shark and then attack him for 16 with his own :)|
|Pimpvitional players. Standing: Hagelpum, Mg, Felipe, Elof, Freespace and Sehl. Sitting: Stalin and Jenny.|
|Our local Mark Justice.|
