The 2019 Denver Vault Tour was the second archon survival Vault Tour for Call of the Archons. The tournament took place on April 27-29, 2019 in Denver, CO, United States, and drew 131 players. This was the last archon Vault Tour prior to the Library Access and Bait and Switch erratas. Even though the top cut only contained two Library Access/Nepenthe Seed decks, nine out of the top sixteen decks contained a copy of Bait and Switch.

Nathan Westlake of Team SAS-LP won the Vault Tour by playing a Dis, Logos, Shadows deck named Bahamut "Alp Larissa" Heifetz. However, all three games of the adaptive finals were won with his opponent's deck, Bombfoot, the Aeronaut of the Pike. Nathan bid on Bombfoot for 1 chain in the bidding portion of the adaptive finals. He also went undefeated with his day 1 deck with the exception of a concession in the last round to play Bahamut for day 2. His day 1 deck, "Galaxy" Tycho, Manor Arrowsmith, later went on to win the 2020 Albany Vault Tour with his teammate as its pilot.
