Week 9 Should Be Awesome

VSL_S4_Standings_AfterWk8

We probably know who our 4 playoff competitors are (though Chris can still tie for a spot by going 2-0 tonight and getting help in the form of a loss by either Rich or Luis), but look how close the battle for last in! If Steve loses then it’s obviously just him, but if Steve beats Chris then all 5 of the other matches feature a player who must win in order to avoid relegation into next season’s play-in tournament.

We will of course play Steve’s match against Chris last, for maximum torture, I mean drama.

Week 8 HYPE!

We start with the Ochoa v Maher match that was postponed from week 7, but we also have to postpone one match – Pikula v Ochoa – to next week. So we’ll have our normal five matches, but with just one week left after tonight we should have well more than our normal share of drama!

Week 6 Schedule

This is the last week of the middle trimester, so there will be new decks (possibly with Oath of the Gatewatch cards!) when we return from our 1-week break for the Pro Tour. Before that, though, we’ve got a 5-way tie for 5th – 9th to break. Who will be in contention for playoffs heading into the last trimester and who will be worried about relegation? We’ll find out in week 6.

Week 3 Update

You can see week 3 matches HERE. If you watch only one I recommend watching the absolute clinic put on by Eric Froehlich on how to play a storm deck. The last match is also good, though twitch issues ate a bit of the crucial turn.

Now we all get to submit new decklists for next week!
