Some events let you use normal junk cards with sharpie text written on them instead of the most expensive cards, like Black Lotus or Mishra's Workshop. 10x proxy card limits is the standard I believe. That means you have to use real cards for the majority of your deck, but any 0-10 cards can be fakes.

Rules for proxies vary by location. Some will let you use 15 proxies, some will only allow certain types of fake cards.

The idea behind it is to increase participation in vintage tournaments.

Ah cool. Yeah I was pretty ticked when vintage died of in the late ninties, working on rebuilding my collection now that I am not a broke ass teenager.
Can't believe how much prices have gone up in the last five six years! I had like 20 duals, 3 mishra's workshop etc.. everything outside of the power nine, did have an alpha timetwister, manadrain eureka..
I am in the process of negotiating for an old school collection though so hoping there is some good stuff, need to drive out and take a look in a week or two, guy I used to play with. If I remember correctly he has a juzaam so that would be cool, got his moxes and lotus stolen though..
hoping it works out..
