Stuck in Ovaltine: Scryings Stompy, U-Bru’s, and Secret Decoder Rings

It’s about 10:30 and I’m watching n00bCOM in 2-3 minute intervals while drinking lukewarm coffee and trying to finish up some work before I say fuck Friday. Meanwhile, my two kids are swimming around with ferocious amounts of energy. I’ve just finished tutoring my daughter as she is out of school for the rest of …

De Mysteriis Dom Titania Part I

Part I: The Birth of a Goddess In the Mind of the All-Consciousness, there came forth the Word. From the Word, came Light. Set apart from Light was Darkness, and so the One became Two, and the Universe was manifest. The Heavens were set apart from the Earth. In the Heavens were suspended the stars …

A Bootleggers Christmas: Alpha-Alliances Tournament Report

The weather was temperate this past Saturday, although the gray skies and wind posed as a very cold winter day. Our crew assembled on the front steps of Tennessee Brew Works for our third annual Christmas Tournament, A Bootleggers Christmas.  We decided way back that these annual Christmas events would be close Music City friends …

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 …

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 Won Players Ball and Had Fun Doing it

Okay, so right out of the gate, I didn't win the 2019 Old School Players Ball. That honor went to mage West, who ran what amounts to a white burn deck that forces you to play 24 rounds of Magic in an 8-round tourney. That tale is recounted here: https://www.eternalcentral.com/story-time-at-the-old-school-players-ball/ When I say I won, I …

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 …

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 …

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, …

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. …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Bootleggers Ball 2019

Registration link at the bottom Sometime last summer, shortly after the first Bootleggers Ball, I was surprised to see a message pop up from Jesper Myrfors. What in the shit is Jesper Myrfors messaging me for? He told me that I should show our groups patch featuring the artwork from Titanias Song to Tom Wanerstrand, …

EYE in Control: Hype, Rambles, Middle School……-by-Gore

Holy shit its 2019. I’m finding myself at work trying to slice through the grind so I figured I’d blast out a quick post. It’s been fun for me to word vomit upon this blog for the past year about my dumb decks and boring work life, even if I am just bullshitting for my …
