For those Premodern lovers out there you can now find the complete stream from the Swedish Nationals on YouTube! And here.
Have you ever heard of the format Premodern? If not, this is the perfect video for you. Gordon sat down with the creator Martin Berlin to talk about the why, what and when about Premodern.
The format is an Old School format that takes up where most 93/94 formats end and stretches all the way until Wizards decided to change the card frame. That is, it is almost the opposite of what is now known as Modern. But I will leave it at that, watch the video for the complete story and visit Premodernmagic.com for a more in-depth look at the format itself. Enjoy!
Just one more thing, don’t miss that we will stream the Swedish Championship in Premodern on Saturday June 8 at 11am CET at www.twitch.tv/wakwakmtg 46 Players will join the battle, but only one will be crowned Swedish Champion 2019!
Some of you may have picked up that this video has been in the making as it have taken about half a year to finish it. It’s my (Gordon) first more “serious” video in almost ten years and it has therefore taken a lot of time, but now I will focus on more 93/94 content!
So last weekend Gordon flew to Italy to do some streaming, to be exact a whoopin’ 3 streams in 3 days(!). Now, the result didn’t really end up like that, due to… some “small” internet issues. But we did manage to stream at least the swiss from both the main event and the first ever European Championship in Premodern. The main event is split into two different videos due to a blackout (yep, everything is stable over there hehe) in the middle of the tournament. The players did however continue their games during the blackout thanks to the flashlights in people’s phones. That was amazing to see!
but without further ado, here are the matches that were caught on camera!

Fishliver Oil Cup European Championship in Premodern
Here are some amazing news! At least we think so!
One of the worlds biggest and most amazing old school events is the Fishliver Oil Cup and as last year, Wak-Wak will be there to set up a stream. That means that if your aren’t lucky enough to be able to attend you will at least be able to tune in and watch some Juzams being cast on Twitch.
The event features three different very special tournaments and the plan is to stream them all. Also, at least two of the three will have full time commentary! Isn’t that great?
The schedule is as follows:
This tournament will probably be the largest old school tournament with Eternal Central rules ever organized in Europe, taking the record from last years event. Right now there are 88 players registered, and that is also the limit of the event that will be held in the worlds oldest lighthouse(!), talk about a special venue.
The stream will start at around 5pm CET and probably not have a commentator.
The main event will be played with Italian rules in Swedish style, and if we are lucky this could become the worlds biggest old school tournament ever(!). Just because of this our own Gordon will do commentary instead of playing and he will probably become drunker and drunker through the event for that real old school feel.
The stream will start at around 1pm CET.
The last tournament of the weekend will be the first European Premodern Championship, which also will be the biggest Premodern tournament held to date. To celebrate this we have gotten the founding father of Premodern, Martin Berlin, to do commentary throughout the event!
The stream will start around 11am CET.
You can tune in to watch the streams at Twitch.tv/wakwakmtg and please see the above times as approximate hehe.
Any questions, or suggestions for the stream? Just leave a comment!
