“What else, when chaos draws all forces inward to shape a single leaf meet.” — Conrad Aiken (ish)
Join us November 19, 2022 for a day of Old School and Premodern in Canada’s capital, Ottawa. As is tradition, all entry fees and money raised will go to our community’s preferred charity, Ottawa Food Bank.
In this guide, I will walk through the basics of the Green/White Treshgeddon (Threshold Armageddon) deck in Premodern. Premodern is a casual format spanning Fourth Edition through Scourge, and features a banlist that sets it apart from existing formats.
In the last two weeks of Feburary 2022, 56 players gathered to play 5 webcam matches of Magic. These players represented 6 Old School communities across Canada, and a group of Outsiders looking to defeat the Canadians for their Cup.
Congratulations to the winning community, Quebec City Brew Crew, who selected Le Pignon Bleu (The Blue Gable) to receive the $1,234 raised. Le Pignon Bleu helps less fortunate families in the Quebec region.
With everything happening with Omicron, how about another Boreal Community Cup to keep our minds off things, and to bring the Canadian communities together? And by that, we mean pitting Canada’s Old School communities against each other, all to benefit charity!
In March, 16 dragon masters from all across the EST timezone lined-up to battle for some gold.
We had a better representation of the dragons this time. Instead of half of all decks being Nicol Bolas, he commanded a more reasonable quarter of the decks out there. Arcades was the most popular dragon in March partly owing to the fact that Joel and Andrew, the only two people who had their dragons assigned randomly, were both running her.
The Canadian Old School communities’ organizers hosted the very first Boreal Community Cup: a one-day webcam event on February 6.
70 players from across the world battled for their community using the Boreal ruleset, effectively 4-Strip-Mine Atlantic. Thanks to the players and donors, the event raised $1,905 forJeunesse au soleil (Sun Youth). And an especially big thanks to our judges, David Lachance-Poitras and Robert Hinrichsen, who put in a lot of work to make sure the event didn’t go too off the rails.
Canadian Old School communities’ organizers will be hosting the very first Boreal Community Cup: a one-day webcam event on February 6. Canadian Old School communities (including Capital Chaos) will be competing with others to win the Cup. An entire community, and not a person, wins the Cup and communities get points for their performance in the Swiss, spice and their use of their Community card (see below). Also, the winning community picks the charity.
With 15 participants from across Canada (and Philadelphia!), our first ever brawl league, the Capital Chaos Dragon Brawl, has wrapped-up. The caveat on this brawl event was that your commander had to be one of the five elder dragon legends.
The Dragon Brawl was an Old School Brawl league double-elimination league with a 16-player cap. What is OS Brawl? A 60-card singleton, commander format with OS93/94-legal cards (Alpha through Fallen Empires) only. In the Dragon Brawl, your commander must be one one of the give elder dragon legends.
