I can't believe they let the crowd sit within earshot of the players while having access to the hand cams, so they can yell every time somebody draws something important. And then Bueler constantly telling everybody to be quiet, even though he screams every time he sees a top-deck himself. That shit would drive me crazy, and would certainly never fly in today's world. Lol

For how much praise the announcers are giving Brian Davis regarding his Magic skills, he sure as hell made some terrible, rookie mistakes in that match. Literally threw away 2 games that he had in the bag. He played game 2 so poorly that it was actually difficult to watch. *Cringe*

And he might as well have just sideboarded his Consultations out, because he clearly has no idea how to play that card. There were several occasions where he could have used it to either save himself, or win the game, and for whatever reason, he just let it sit in his hand collecting dust. You cannot play "scared Magic" with that card. If you're afraid of it burning your tech, then use a different card like Vampiric Tutor or something.

19:35 - Look how beat up that top card on Brian's deck is. That, my friends, is why sleeves have basically become mandatory.

riffle shuffling the sleeveless duals mistakenly breaks the shuffle and the cards sickeningly jam together OHMYGOODNESSJUSTKILLMENOW!!!!!

Apart from the value of the cards... it is really weird they allowed NO sleeves.

Just take an Ice Age card (necropotence) and a revised or 4th card (dark ritual) and look at the backs. they will have different shades of brown...... You could easily cheat without sleeves by using certain printings of cards for maximum difference....

That was a major reason why we got opaque sleeves , at first ultra pro would just produce transparent sleeves.... I still have some of those from around 1995

Heh... amusing to watch everyone freaking out about no sleeves on their decks. It's just the way the rules were for a while back then. As an aside, nobody played with sleeves when the game first started. We played with far more valuable cards and no sleeves... riffle shuffling and all that. lol The cards didn't have their value yet and the game was new. Gaming sleeves came later. In my gaming group, I was one of the last people to start sleeving. heh Funny to think about now. I even won a Type I (now called Vintage) tournament back then without sleeves.

Seeing this, I'm really glad Wizards decided to make creatures relevant. I mean, the best creatures in this match are Faerie Conclave and Treetop Village... That says something.
(Oh yeah, there's a Morphling in Bob's deck too, but still...)

People asking why no sleeves etc in like 500 comments on this video. 1.) Sleeves were banned at a certain point of magic- they thought it would stop cheating or something to that extent. 2.) The cards they are playing with at that time are worth a max of 10$... dualands - 10 bucks, force of wills maybe 5 to 10 bucks. 3.) Also the game was no where near what it is today of more than possibly triple the player base, no magic online back then, the internet was only mainstream for 2 years when this tournament was held 1999... and to be honest the internet sucked back then.... Hell if we had any video's of people playing magic in 1993-- if any even exist-- you would see Alpha black lotus and power 9 and the original dual lands being done the exact same way as in this video..... Just goes to show you how times change...... my ohhh my how times change!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a great match, and its great for two reasons, for one is it really cool to see these old cards we have never heard of in action alongside these busted cards we know and love today like FOW and Enlightened tutor, and secondly in all these matches one of the players (usually brian davis) makes a mistake that compiles onto itself for future decisions, and it really shows how punishing your poor decision making can be in this game, in the last game when he didnt take the FOW if he took the FOW, he would have had more spells to bait the counters, and he also likely would have been able to define the gamestate much sooner, instead he took the counterspell, and if he had that extra 3 life, it very well may have saved him from being necro-locked not to mention it may have drawn him a discard spell to pick apart his opponents hand

That sacred ground call with nevinryll's disk was incorrect. All of the enchantments and manlands would leave the play zone and enter the graveyard at the same time. Sacred Ground is no longer in play and its effect is no longer active.

What pains me about the no sleeves isn't the damage being done to the cards, it's the simple fact that some of their cards are SO badly mangled that they're marked. When you look at your opponent's library and there are cards with straight-up creases all over the place...

typical situation in constructed:
someone who build a deck based on the metagame (understands the game)
someone who has been told which deck is the best (no idea how to play)

It's not only the lack of sleeves, but the cards (at least from Brian Davis' side) look almost like they got wet, really warped at the edges

Wastelands were like $2 back then. Duals were $10 and I got most of mine for $5 before they got "expensive." Ah, the good ol' days.

It is already painful to watch them play with cards unsleeved, but on top of that they also keep flickering the cards and slamming them on the board like a pair of 8 year-olds.

'mulder1979' 2 years ago
Brian Davis should have won 5-0 easily. No offence, but this was some poor play. Discarding the Wasteland when your opponent has a deck full of manlands? Drain Life for 4 when you know he's playing Swords? Not taking the FOW with the Unmask AND the Ritual into Drain Life? Each very poor choices.
Dana Huffer
'Dana Huffer' 2 years ago
Not gonna lie, Davis played incredibly sloppy.  He should have gone 5-0 here.
