2020 Old School Magic Summer Derby Results and Deck Photos


The 4th annual Old School Magic Summer Derby is in the books! This year’s event saw a record-shattering 258 participants, representing 20 countries (Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States) and at least 55 regional Old School clubs spread across 15 different time zones around the world. Over the span of six weeks, we played roughly 981 matches of Old School Magic via webcam.

While entry fees were not collected and the Derby series will always remain free to play, we did encourage donations at registration to support Partners in Health, a global nonprofit dedicated to providing a preferential option to the poor in health care. Thanks to contributions from many of the players and $1,200 in matching funds from an anonymous member of the Old School community, I am humbled to report that we raised a total of $3,505.19 in support of Partners in Health’s COVID-19 response efforts around the world.

The Derby series rotates between different 93/94 format variants every six months. Past Derby events have used the Swedish, Eternal Central, Atlantic, and Pacific B&R lists. This instance of the Summer Derby was played using the Atlantic 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.).

Pairings were released in two batches in late June and early July, 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 Summer Derby Finals were played on Sunday, August 9th, and featured returning Summer Derby finalist Pez Unholy (USA) on 5C Lion/Dib Burn versus David Third of the Sisters of the Flame (USA, representing the United Kingdom) on The Deck.

After all was said and done, David Third took the match 3-2, and was named the Summer Derby Champion for 2020! Congratulations to David and the Sisters of the Flame, to all of the Top 16 finalists, and thank you, again, to all of the players who participated. Thanks very much to our “official” streaming partners for the Top 16 — Rich Bourque, Andy Baquero, Thomas Meddens/Timmy Talks, Simon Rokkjær, Jed Locsin, and Muckystar! And special thanks must also go out once again to the inimitable Antonio Rodríguez for designing the Derby series logo and Summer 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 literally one thousand 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.
