2020 Old School Magic Winter Derby Results and Deck Photos


The 4th annual Winter Derby is in the books! This year’s event saw 164 participants, representing 18 countries (Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Myanmar, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States) spread across 13 different time zones. Over the span of six weeks, we played roughly 600 matches of Old School Magic via webcam.

The 2020 Winter Derby was conducted under the Pacific 93/94 B&R list, allowing the full range of original art/old card frame re-prints (Revised, 4th/Chronicles, CE/IE, FBB/FWB, etc). As with past Derby series events, our tournament had no entry fee and no prize support, so the stakes were simply glory and bragging rights for the winner.

Pairings were released in two batches over the month of January, with all participants asked to schedule and play eight individual matches in about four weeks. After the batches were completed, we cut to Top 16 and played out a single-elimination bracket. The Winter Derby Finals were played on February 2nd, and featured Quinn Maurmann (USA, The Deck) versus Anne Joldersma (Netherlands, Workshops).

The Winter Derby Finals, streamed live on Twitch by Mise Well Watch, with commentary from Will Magrann and Mike VanDyke. Click through for VOD.

After all was said and done, Quinn Maurmann took the match 3-0, and was named the Winter Derby Champion for 2020! Congratulations to Quinn and the Emerald City Trolls, to all of the Top 16 finalists, and thank you, again, to all of the players who participated. Special thanks must also go out once again to the inimitable Antonio Rodríguez for designing our new Derby series logo and Winter Derby banner, and Mattias “Slanfan” Berggren for developing a bespoke “batch pairings” tool for use in tournaments of this format, making it much, much easier to process the results of several hundred matches behind the curtain. The Derby series has become a fun semi-annual celebration for the international Old School Magic scene, and these contributions and the cooperation of all of the players goes a long way toward making it possible.

For anyone interested in future events, or just trying out webcam Old School Magic for the first time, please consider joining our online community of players! People are always looking for pick-up games in our Facebook group and in the #down-to-play channel on the Old School Discord.
