Winning the Bazaar of Moxen

Posted in Feature on May 14, 2014

From Friday Night Magic to the Pro Tour, Adam Prosak loves all types of tournament Magic. Currently, Adam is working in R&D as a developer.

Recently, Eternal players in all of Europe flocked to Annecy, France, for a weekend full of Modern, Legacy, and Vintage tournaments called the Bazaar of Moxen. The prizes for these tournaments are some of the most sought-after cards in the game. Coming out on top of a field of 214 players at the latest edition of the Bazaar of Moxen, Gwen De Schamphlaere took home one of each of the five original Moxes!


Gwen's deck is one of the classic Vintage decks—a Time Vault deck featuring Tezzeret the Seeker to both find Time Vault and untap it to take all of the turns. Snapcaster Mage seems incredible with Time Walk and Ancestral Recall, while Mental Misstep makes an appearance in one of the only formats where it is legal. The sideboard features an Oath of Druids + Forbidden Orchard package. The typical game plan with Oath involves hitting Rune-Scarred Demon and finding Yawgmoth's Will with the Demon, then recasting all of the cards in your graveyard because of the Oath of Druids.

Starting June 16, you can play Vintage and open pieces of the Power Nine on Magic Online! Vintage Masters will bring the Vintage format to Magic Online for the very first time! Having worked on the set personally, I am really excited to see what happens with online Vintage.
