@emopizza I also did some testing with song of the dryads and imprisoned in the moon. They seem corny but both offer good options to threats that the deck has issues dealing with like active planeswalkers. I cut them in the end because they didn’t have any interaction once they hit the graveyard and were too much of an investment to have countered.
I think they could easily see some play though as an answer to certain blue decks in the right build.
@13NoVa sadly (especially for Joe Brennan that is coming to visit Italy and play) the placement on Firday will result in 30ish players for what is now probably the best event in Europe that includes both Eternal formats. Legacy will be great as usual at least.
Congratulations to William Dayton for bringing in top honors at Deal Me In Games today. We had 22 people show up to flip cards today with a finals being a Shops mirror between 2 seasoned shops veterans - Will and Josh Barkon. Will took the finals match. Then about 10 of us ran out for dinner at Durangos across the street. Of course they were too busy so we ran down the road about 15 mins to Red Lobster (who was also too busy so we went for Mexican). Long story short, i was going to get the final standings and round by round breakdown after dinner. But since we ended up nowhere near the shop, that didn't happen. I'll have a tournament report, meta breakdown and updated season standings later this week!
@thecravenone said in Eternal Weekend for the first timer:
If you have the option of sitting vs standing, sit. Lots of people stand around talking between rounds and then complain about sore feet later in the day.
I may be in the minority, but I found the opposite to be true assuming I’m not carrying around a 20 pound bag on my back. Standing and more importantly walking around keeps the blood flowing and lets me stay loose. To each their own though, but I’ve never experienced sore feet at a tournament from standing but I have had a sore back and a tension headache from sitting hunched over and carrying a heavy backpack around.
