I Open Old Frame

For a lot of us, the creation back in June of 2020 of the MTG Old Frame League was heaven sent. Swamped by the global pandemic, we had no way of playing our favourite game and tournaments didn’t seem to be something we would enjoy anytime soon.

Luckily the league helped us take the dust out of our sleeves and interact with fellow fans of the old school Magic the Gathering cards. But we love physical cards for a reason, and that very same reason made us miss live tournaments.

Things have hardly gotten better and the dream of a huge international Old Frame tournament may remain a dream for the foreseeable future, but at least we can now say the First Open Old Frame is in the books and twelve people participate in the first ever Magic the Gathering Old Frame live tournament, held in Valencia, Spain, with the collaboration of Technoliga Valencia.

The winner deck, Paco’s Secret, was that of Paco Benlloch with a staple of the Old Frame format, TPS.
