Ultimate Budget Tournament Format:

A deck is 75 cards. No more, no less, no sideboards.

Legal cards: Up to 4 copies of anything legal in Vintage.

When you walk into the tournament, shuffle your deck, cut fifteen cards, UNSLEEVE them, and donate them to the organizer. They go into the pool.

The organizer RIFFLE SHUFFLES the pool.

The tournament happens (everyone’s deck is now 60 cards).

When you exit the tournament, the organizer deals you fifteen cards from the pool. They’re yours now.

That’s it. Again, you can play four copies of anything legal in Vintage. Play whatever you want — but you’ll be donating twenty percent of your deck! Build something cheap, really cheap!
