CONTEST

 

  • Entries into our contest is closed and we will announce the winners on our next episode, which will be recorded on January 6th. Thank you to all that participated!

 

COMMUNITY

 

 

  • SCG PC Fantasy Draft for Chipotle, what did our rosters look like?

 

SCG PLAYERS’ CHAMPIONSHIP

 

  • Before getting into the results, let’s talk about the hits and misses from the tournament/coverage.

    • The tournament structure was very confusing and didn’t make a lot of sense to people.

    • Tiebreakers also played a huge role and were equally as confusing.

    • There were no draws in this tournament, yet the rounds were timed. If players got to a point where they got to time + 5 turns, highest life total determined the game.

    • While it promoted more drama with multiple elimination matches, was this really the best way to determine the best player?

    • Video player profiles and deck techs for all of the standard and legacy decks was awesome.

    • What would we like to see on the next go around?

  • Brad Nelson defeats Gerard Fabiano in the finals to become the first ever SCG Players’ Champ!

    • Reid Duke and BBD round out the top 4.

  • Standard was very top-heavy with Sultai Whip decks. Gerard Fabiano and Reid Duke played No-Sidisi versions and relied more on Eidolon of Blossoms for card advantage.

  • Jeskai Tokens was played by 4 different people and was not impressive overall. Only Ross Merriam ended with a positive record.

  • U/W Heroic was played by 3 players and was also very underwhelming.

  • BBD played the Abzan Aggro deck that we highlighted last week.

  • Not too much to say about legacy. Not surprisingly, everyone played what they knew with the exception of Joe Lossett playing Reanimator instead of Miracles.

  • How do we feel about the tournament as a whole?

  • Cardmageddon was a colossal failure.

    • Stream was extremely laggy and basically unwatchable. (Not sure if this was due to poor camera quality or bad internet at the venue.)
