Ponies Play MTG

I am thinking Crystal City Mall this time around but have yet to look up the address yet.

Anyways with a bigger space we can organize this a bit better. Plans consist of:

Draft tournament with prizes
EDH games
Modern/Lagacy casual play

We have experienced players to be teachers if your just starting out and spare decks laying around for anyone to join in.

    Dang, I want to go to this but I just noticed the time lol. Ug, I'm going to have to leave super early to attend, totally missing the new episode heh.

    Maybe if I can get there early enough I can watch the live stream on my laptop at the library perhaps.

    I will definitely be there, but I will be a bit late. I have a martial arts class that gets out at 11.

    What do you guys think of using a DC Brony staple and just going to the tenley friendship library.

      I see no problem with it. It would certainly have enough space. But on the other hand, if we tried one of the card shops I mentioned below, then we'd be guaranteed to not have any confusion over land during the draft like we did last time. The biggest risk I foresee with the card shop idea is that based on the Google Street View maps, the shop locations aren't overly conspicuous and might be hard to spot, which is something we wouldn't need to worry about if we meet at the library. Hmm...Darkpony, everyone else, what are your thoughts? Guaranteed land for the draft, or easy location to find?

      February 1, 2013

    • DarkPony

      i have spare lands i didnt know it was a problem during the draft or i would of pulled mine out lets go to the library.

    So have we decided on a location yet?

    I saw magic, i came, put me in as a "maybe" due to me fairly restrictive inability to go distances rather often.

    Gatecrash boosters will be for sale 3.50 a pop

    February 3, 2013

  • Sam M.

    Finally got myself some EDH decks, so I can do more than the draft this time! I'll almost certainly be bringing another booster box of Gatecrash, but let me reiterate the rules of the open Swiss draft IF I decide to hold one.
    -Since I'd be providing all the packs, the tournament should be treated like a Cube draft, meaning that all cards opened during the draft will belong to me when it is over. If I see a rare hit the table, I expect that rare to be in my hand when we leave (unless I decided to trade it)
    -Prizes are possible, but not guaranteed. Most likely, I'll end up awarding one unopened pack for each match won
    -Participation will be free and technically on a first-come first-served basis up to 8 competitors, but I'm more inclined to be charitable towards new players
    -Please be considerate towards players who did not bring their own land. I will provide what I can, but I'm relatively new to paper Magic myself.

    Any questions?

    January 27, 2013

    • DarkPony

      im doing it for the new set as well which is why is put draft down but you can do it if you want. I am thinking of selling boosters at a slightly discounted price to help fund Drafts though.

  • DarkPony

    so i was doing some research and cant find a mall in crystal city anyone got any suggestions.

    January 28, 2013

    • Sam M.

      I don't know about Crystal City, but after a bit of research, I found a couple of card/comic shops in DC close to Metro stations. You could always try checking to see if they're interested in hosting us.

      Alternatively, there's always that restaurant we went to last time, and I know I remember someone mentioning a nearby library as an option before.

    Nuts, I would be there but drill weekend is that Sat. and Sun.

  • Adam Van A.

    What are the rules on the cards we can use? Can we use older cards or do the have to be of the newest edition?

    January 27, 2013

    • DarkPony

      it depends on what play format the contestants agree on EDH fallows the EDH ban list modern fallows modern ban list. i have multiple decks and can play in every format except standard.

    I'm a maybe, but I'm signing up as a yes, and also may be bringing someone. If the location is settled on and is a place that could be difficult to get to, I'll try and finagle for a ride.

    Have you considered Dream Wizards in Rockville? The Casual Thursday group is both fun and friendly, great for new people.

    January 27, 2013

  • Jeremy J.

    Well, I finally finished building out my Blue/Black Modern Casual deck. I need to work on play testing it and tweaking a few things, but I should be good to go for this meetup. I also want to proxy one of my decks from DOTP if no one has a problem with that.
