The Albany Vault Tour was hosted at the Albany Capital Center in Albany, NY, United States from January 10-12, 2020. The format was Archon survival, and it was the first of this format since the release of Worlds Collide. The event had the highest attendance in the United States to date for an archon Vault Tour outside of Gen Con with 142 players. It was the first archon Vault Tour in which Shadows was not the most popular house in the top 16. Players were allowed to choose any of their remaining surviving decks for day 2, and players in the top 4 played their matches as best-of-three. Although the top 4 had decks from all three sets, there was only one Age of Ascension deck in the entire top cut.

The event was won by Luke Daniels from Team SAS-LP, who played a Call of the Archons deck during the finals. He won ten consecutive games with "Galaxy" Tycho, Manor Arrowsmith after an early record of 0-2 with his first two decks. The winning deck also went undefeated on Day 1 of the 2019 Denver Vault Tour; it used to be a LANS deck.
